Hee, I know you have something to send - I assumed you've been overwhelmed by real-life stuff. Or did you need my address, is it done? (Trying to contain excitement)

My email provider/program has been verrrrry difficult, so I'm probably easiest to reach here, or by text. Feel free to text me at 580/504-2435 ... I trust you w/my cell#!

(Oh, and it made me so sad to read about your "worst thing to ever happen", I'm experiencing a tiny bit of that right now. NOt the husband, tho - it's all good down here!)

"Retired" vet tech, does that count? :P

Just think, if I still lived in Dallas, short drive. I really miss it there :(

We've been pretty busy, also stupid allergies and flu have been giving me major grief, ugh. Took me a few do-overs before I was happy with the finish... *anal*, in other words, but I'm really liking it. So yes, 'tis done, yay!!! Have your address, no worries :) Might give ya a call sometime, though, just to yak. I'll let you know as soon as we ship :D

(Aww **hugs** It's a killer, to be sure, but it's over and done with, that one is history :))

*clappies* Calls!!!! Texts, whatever! That would be awesome, seriously.

(hating that you don't still live in Dallas, so I'd have a reason to go shopping.)
Ah well, you got it! Give me a couple of days or so to get over the sneezing fits and we'll get to blabbing =)

(Lush store got there AFTER I moved back to El Paso, wtf is THAT?)
Aw, benefitting from the anal...lityness!

Lush AND Nordstrom came into NorthPark Mall after my years of living blocks away, dammit! But if you ever get a hankerin' to get out of El Paso (I know, you're closer to me when I'm in Las Vegas than you are to Dallas), count me in!
:P

Nordstrom was there before I moved, I think. Am I closr to Las Vegas? Not sure...I know driving there is way more exhausting and blah than driving to Dallas, though 0_0
I've never mapped it, but you'd have to be: when the husband was in his hair-band days in Dallas, they played El Paso, so I think it's 12 hours - that right? I know that when I drove to L.A. from OKC, it was a hair more than 24 hrs, so that puts El Paso 'bout halfway.

Soooo, Las Vegas would have to be a shorter drive for you by default, wouldn't you think? Off to yahoo maps to check.

How much fun would that be - we're in Las Vegas for most of June each year, and I'm DYING to go to WC (didn't make it this past June like I'd hoped - long story.) It suuurrrreeee would be fun if I had a WC buddy!
It's always taken 10 hours from here to Dallas(and back), to Las Vegas, I don't remember, it was quite a few years ago.

GAH, I want to go to WC, too! We'll be in California in July, heh. There this past July, too, but wouldn't ya know it, not during WC *sob*.
