My summer has been amazing so far. Its nice to be back in green, green Nashville and occasionally floating down a river, fishing, and/or playing cornhole. Although I miss the concrete jungle from time to time, it's nice to know there is a pool within 2 miles of me at all times. You know, just in case?
I dropped off of Facebook - and it has been a lot easier than expected. I no longer find it a useful or productive way to spend my time and I love not knowing everything that's happening, 24/7. I think it adds a sense of mystery to anyone's life to not have your personal business broadcasted as public knowledge. However, two downsides to this nonsense: I miss looking at photos and it's become extremely difficult communicating with my friends across the pond. Fortunately...I'm creating a photobucket account for online-photo-posting AND my welsh lads are coming to visit Nashvegas in October for Halloween weekend - this. will. be. a. blast.
I recently went to the Coldplay concert and it was amazing. You never truly realize how many Coldplay songs you know...until you go to a concert that has a 26-song setlist and you know around 20. I knew a lot more than I thought. My two favorite songs of their most recent album are Lost! and Strawberry Swing. Strawberry swing is almost folk-sounding and is the perfect summery soundtrack.
My father recently hurt his leg - BAD. He was playing basketball at the YMCA and landed wrong while getting a rebound. Unfortunately, it was a compound fracture that resulted in surgery and loads of pain medication. In fact, I'm going to babysit him tomorrow for my mother while she's out running errands. I hate that he's hurt because of how active he constantly is, therefore, I know that laying in bed all day is wearing on his soul.
I'm currently constructing a volleyball court in my backyard that will be so much fun once completed. I'm not half-assing it either. I've hired on Dillon to dig the court out with a Bobcat and I'm then filling it with gravel, landscaping fabric, and sand. This works well for drainage. Come one, come all - as it should be a good time once completed. Also, I had a garage sale this past Saturday and made a whopping $700 dollars...what to buy, what to buy...
