For anyone who has followed this blog for a while you might have observed 2 things...
1) I'm in INSANE Longhorn fan. Yes I am one of those tacky people who spend ubber amounts of money to dress my family in matching garb. I play the fight songs for them and have chanted the chants for them. Granted when I was at UT I don't think I really appreciated being there. After I was done... well I changed. I suddenly loved my alma-mater!
2) I was probably an European Gypsy or Traveller in a past life. Not only did I once read fortunes for a living but I LOVE traveling. I almost dropped out of college and became a stewardess b/c I can't enough of it! That is why I loved Vegas. I was real close to San Diego, LA, Phoenix, San Francisco, etc. and would always go for quick weekend trips! Also I could always go to Venice (the Venetian), Paris (Paris Hotel), or hop over to Ancient Rome (Caesars Palace) any time I wanted.
One lesser known fact is that Chris is a BYU Grad. Thus this game on September 10th would have been so much fun for us!!!!!!! But alas it is totally irresponsible if we go. We didn't budget for it and it is going to cost a lot. I'm too busy with the new thing I'm doing and Chris is drowning in the midst of the company stuff. Furthermore last year's season for Texas was a total depressing bloodbath... do I really want to go to a game where Chris gloats all the way home? So yes there is no reason for us to go, BUT I REALLY WANT TOO! I'm anxious to scream curse words and do Longhorn chants. I want to travel again. I hate staying put. I want to take Chris to see all my old haunts: kayaking in Town Lake, the balcony at the student union (and maybe even kiss him), etc.
But no, that is irresponsible! As a practical working mom adult I understand it... but the crazy Longhorn gypsy in me says... DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT! Probably a good thing we lost the credit card last week ;) Better not reorder it until Sept 12!
Edit: Chris read my blog early this morning and he surprised me with a night in the mountains for that weekend. It isn't anything like Austin but at least it will be nice to get away for the night, its affordable, and the kids get to come :)
