In Waco

I left yesterday around noon to go up to the school and leave my sub plans and then we headed out around 2:00 for the long drive to Waco.  We got in around 10 p.m. and stayed ahead of the storms.  We drove through about 15 minutes of rain outside of Abilene and found out that tornadoes were developing to the south of Abilene.  Luckily we were heading more east and was able to stay ahead of the weather.  Some strong storms hit the towns that we had traveled through, but not until we were well ahead of them.  I slept well last night.  I took 1/2 an ambien and the bed was pretty comfortable.  We are staying at a Fairfield inn and it is pretty nice. 

Today I’m at the competition so it is a long day of just waiting.  Luckily they have internet access.  I have to design a t-shirt for our nationals group so I’m going to try to get that done.  I also have books to read and even brought my Harry Potter video to watch.  I also have my new Mental Floss magazine which I held off reading so I could do it here. 

After the competition, we will go to the mall for a while and then we will have dinner with my friend Kim who I typically see once a year when we come down here.  We will head back tomorrow so we don’t have to rush back.

It seems to be rather stress-free. If you can avoid the tornadoes on your way back too, all will be good. :)
