But, my remaining time with Michelle was great. We actually ended up spending half of yesterday in pj's getting all excited talking design-shop, then hit up a few of her go-to places before making our way to San Antonio. On the way we stopped in Gruene, which is home to the oldest dance hall in Texas. Tons of famous people have played there, and the walls were covered with framed autographs, as well as a band setting up to play later that night. We arrived in San Antonio just in time to have dinner on the Riverfront and this morning we took a water taxi to see the Alamo before I headed off to Houston. An unexpected but nice little detour on my trip east. I really had a wonderful time with my cousin, whom I had not spent much time with as an "adult." We realized we're basically the same person with such overlapping interests - maybe like the sister I never had? I would love to go back and visit her again in Austin.
So, three quick hours later, I made it to Houston. Robin left work a little early, and we enjoyed running a few errands and picking up groceries to make dinner - grilled chicken with avocado and corn salsa with a jicama and mango salad - yum! I can't believe I haven't seen her since the year we graduated from Georgetown, and I'm really looking forward to spending the weekend with her and making up for much lost time.
Alright, I need to get myself to sleep. Apparently this class is a killer, so I'm hoping I'm functioning well enough to type tomorrow ;).
