summer in oxford

Just like any other college town, things slow down here a good bit in the summer.  This is usually very welcomed by the townies....and the more "mature" student population (we fall into this category).  Things are just a whole lot...easier. However, this summer, not only did the younger students flee but I also lost my husband and most all of the other "mature" folks I associate with on a regular basis.  Everyone is off interning and chasing jobs and such....or they're teachers and have the summer off! Ugh!  Ok, so, turns out the whole appeal of everyone getting out of town for the summer isn't all it's cracked up to be when you're the only one left behind.

So, I'm sorry for my lack of posts lately but my life pretty much consists of work, gym, cook, laundry (maybe), sleep, repeat.  Who wants to hear about that?   I'll try to keep you informed as things come up...but I can't promise you there will be a lot of action in the near future.

I am however "pet sitting" a lively little fish named Clifford.  One of my teacher friends (mentioned above) is away on summer vacation and asked me to watch after her classroom fish.  Oh, the pressure.  She assured me it's no big deal if he dies! Ha!  Well, here's to hoping I can get him through the next month...along with a few of her plants that she left for me to watch over, as well.  So far, so good.

I really think he's staring me down

P.S.  B-Dub is only a couple of  hours away so he'll be coming back on the weekends.  So, maybe I was being a little dramatic above...maybe.
