you pick

Okay. I need your help. Please vote below.

My friend Kristen and I are taking a road trip in 3 weeks! We had been planning on going to Albuquerque, NM because neither of us had ever been, it wasn't too far away, but far enough that it wasn't close and it would probably be cooler (in more ways than one) than OKC. But, this morning, through a series of hilarious emails (per usual) we tossed around the idea of going to Memphis, TN!

As some of you may or may not know, Kristen and I decided if we were to ever become stand-up comedians, we would call ourselves Sloppy Sober and our fall tour would kick off in some random smallish city. We practice saying "GOODNIGHT MEMPHIS!" and dropping our mics and walking off stage. This has grown to a level of outrageous where we have decided we will have dance routines, matching sequin outfits, songs, impressions...you name it, it's probably in our "show." And we don't care if you don't think this is as funny as we do.

So, instead of flipping a coin and continuing the "No really, I don't care, we can do whatever" emails, we decided we would take it to the people and let them decide which way we're headed...EAST or WEST. So please, humor us and tell us where you think we should go! (PS, The annual balloon festival in ABQ is in October, so don't let that factor into your decision.)

Things I'm doing right now:

-playing music regularly.

-taking a rowing class. (Like, "Crew" rowing.)

-getting rid of some baggage. (literal and figurative)

-exercising regularly.

-spending as much time as possible with people.

-participating in a weekly Divorce Care class/support group

-going to counseling.

-dreaming some dreams for the (near) future.

-planning trips to visit people I miss.

-contemplating some decisions. (housemate, selling my car)

-borrowing JP's mandolin and learning to play it!

-thinking about going back to school.

-finishing Season 1 of Arrested Development.

Thank you ALL for your comments and emails and messages of support. I'm doing okay; taking it one day at a time. I can't believe it's already the middle of August. I'm so ready for September and October to be here. They are my favorite months of the year. And then, before you know it, December will be here and we all get a chance to have a new start. I know I'm looking forward to a new year!

PS: Happy back-to-school! "I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I had your name and address."
