Road Trip :)
As you may know, most of my friends are in Siloam for the summer working at camp. I miss them terribly.
Yesterday was Kyle's birthday, so I thought I would be a super nice friend and make him an awesome guitar birthday cake and drive up and surprise him.
Things did not turn out as planned. The cake was a total disaster. I made a guitar out of chocolate for the top, and it broke in half before I got there. I put the cake in a box in hopes that it would survive the hour and a half drive. The cake smashed into the side of the box and eventually broke the box and had a huge gash in it. Needless to say, the cake was ugly. Thankfully, I had a picture of the before so that my culinary abilities remained in good standing with everyone.
I miss Kyle so much, in the last year we haven't got to see much of each other. Between work, school, and a bit of a controlling relationship on his end, there just wasn't a lot of time. Last night he told me that was all going to change this year, and I really hope he's right. It's nice having a stand in big brother around since mine moved away.
I also have missed Devin and Chelsea so much in the last few weeks. Home just isn't the same without them. Plus with everyone being gone, I spend a lot of time at home. Normally, that isn't a big deal because I am SUCH a homebody, but lately it's really gotten ridiculous.
One last thought for the day, last night when I was driving home, I decided, stupidly, to come home the back way from Siloam. That included an hour of driving with no cell phone service, alone, pitch dark, though the woods. I. Was. TERRIFIED. Seriously, I'm almost positive that I've never been that scared in my life. I'm starting to think that I watch way too many shows about criminals, but I find it all so fascinating.
Oh, and I've recently discovered that there is nothing more attractive that a guy wearing a shirt an tie with a bulletproof vest. Seriously, I watch too much Criminal minds.
