Nicole, I am game any time you are. Austin is such a rockin’ fun town, and I am up for a roadtrip whenever! (Unless there is some scout thing that I can’t get out of.) And like you said, the Ren Fest is coming up – shall we gather and dress like lusty wenches? Hehehe.
As for Waterloo, I only mentioned it because you need it. I have never been there, although I have been to many other fun & wonderful places in Austin.
So, as for the road trip… any time muffin, any time. Say the word, the Honda is on the road. You deserve it. Hope all is well with Tommy, please let me know how he is doing. And try to do something nice for yourself this weekend, even if it’s just an hour with a good book.
