Richmond Trip
Yesterday I went to Richmond, and it was a lovely trip. I hit very little traffic on the way down (just a tad in Fredericksburg) and arrived just on time. I got to see my old roommate and his new roommate (one of my former study partners) (Greg and Maya) for a couple hours, which was good. I haven't seen either of them in a while. They both seem to be doing well. They're busy, of course, but they're still basically the same as I remember them.

Then I went down to Midlothian to see Lori. That was an easy trip and I didn't get lost or anything. I got to snuggle with her kitties and puppies, which is always a good thing, but more importantly, spent some time just plain catching up with her and Trey. I would have liked to stay a little longer, but I knew that I needed to stop in Springfield at my office on my way home, and I also knew that I didn't want to be exhausted at work today. So I left after about 3 hours (around 5:15) and headed home. But first I stopped for gas. I didn't even go hunting for decent gas prices, because I knew no matter what it was going to be better than home. I paid $1.73 per gallon!!!! Whoo hoo!!! Sad when that number makes me so happy. I remember being offended at paying over a dollar not so long ago. Dernit. Anyway, I was quite pleased at my $1.73/gallon purchase. :-D

The drive home was thankfully uneventful, and included a productive stop in Springfield, and then I came home, took a shower, read a little of my book until Seth got home, and then fell into bed. All in all, not a bad day.

I'm glad that I went and sorry that I don't make it down there more often. It's not very far, and there's really no excuse for not making it down there more often, but with Lori and Trey moving soon, I'm going to have fewer reasons to go down there anyway, so I guess it won't matter so much. I always have a good time seeing everyone, and it would be nice to be able to bring Seth back down there at some point, but that never seems to work out. I always seem to head down there when he's working, even when I try to plan it around him being home (his schedule changes).

I'm beginning to realize what a boring person I am and what a plain life I lead. I'm not complaining. Just an observation.

Current Mood: blah blah

But is boring bad? I did one of those memes back about what you were doing 1, 2, 5, 10, 15 years ago. Sadly, my answers were the same to all of them.

not bad, no. Like I said, it wasn't a complaint, just an observation. But I was beginning to wonder what was the point of keeping journal entries like these which contain little substance and must bore everyone on my friends list to tears. On the other hand, it's MY journal which I only just *happen* to let other people read. So if they're bored, that's their problem. In theory.

I do my journal to (a) make random observations and reviews on things; (b) practicing writing; and (c) to let my friends know what is happening to me. Friends should stick with you through boring and exciting. If my boring life isn't satisfying enough to satisfy the voyeurs, so be it.

By the way, when you think about $1.73/gal, remember that here in California, I was happy to find $1.95/gal—most stations are still over $2.00/gal!
