Last week we drove out to Odessa Monday and I spend almost the entire trip reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt, and my Kindle battery–which is suppose to last me a month– gave out on me by Thursday because I've been reading so much.
Wednesday we went out to the Odessa Meteor cite, which Adrian's family made seem like a tiny hole in the ground, but they had some information and a path to walk through the creator, so it was actually pretty neat.
After, we drove an hour or so west to Monahans State Park where we rented sleds and played on the sand dunes. Climbing up the huge hill in loose sand was murder on our already sore legs. I wiped out once and we got some great pictures of me face first in some sand. I also rolled down sans-sled and was insanely dizzy after. I'm pretty sure I still have sand in my ears.
Overall it was a great trip and I'm so happy I got to take it before school starts this week on Thursday. I'm ready to get back into the swing of things.
