Time Off

I didn't really mean to take so much time off! It sort of got away from me. I was so busy and sort of just let it all just carry me away. But in answer to my many friends' inquiries about where in the heck I've been...I'm okay. Thanks for your concern though - it's nice to know when you're missed!

My niece left a couple of days ago. We had so much fun while she was here. We didn't finish the Zelda game but I'll probably finish it on my own in the next couple of weeks although I'm not going to let it consume my life like I have in times past.

I've also getting really into my new job which has been working out so great! I'm loving the people and the flexibility (not to mention the $$). I've been working with geriatric patients in their homes and it's been awesome. Working with them in nursing homes, I've always wondered what their lives were like in their actual homes and in this job I get to see it. I'm amazed by their spirits. So many of them have these HUGE families (like 10-12 children) and support networks like you wouldn't believe. I love seeing all of their family pictures and seeing their personal lives reflected in the way their homes are kept. I'm so lucky to be able to be in a position to help such terrific people, really.

I'm so happy it's actually Summer now. It's hot enough to take the cover off our pool and actually enjoy it even if it will only be hot for 2 months. I'm just happy to finally have a little bit of a natural tan!

LOL... you just go and disappear for days and you're the one who posted a few weeks back about friends who just never seem to call! :)

Glad you're back... and tan. We're finally getting some sunshine in Seattle. Yeesh.
