I've been a little remiss about posting on my blog,
but after the pressures of writing daily last month,
it seemed like I needed a little bit of a break...
Thanks for hanging in there with me.
Let's see what's been going on since we last wrote....
At the end of the month, my bestest and oldest friend
drove up from SoCal for a visit...
We've been friends since first grade;
Almost 40 years!
Then I made the 5 1/2 hour trek to Sacramento
to work for the next week.
It's always interesting driving alone in a car for that long.
The random thoughts that come to your mind.
I've written about it before,
since I've been traveling down there about
once a month for the last 7 months.
Only about one more month
to go on my contract there.
It's been a great experience
since I get to see things there that
I really don't see in the small rural area where I work.
Also, I can go shopping!
You have to understand,
it's a big deal to go to an area
with stores other than Costco and Target.
Then it was the 5 1/2 hour drive back home...
I love crossing that final bridge and knowing that I am almost home.
Since then, it's been back to the daily grind at work,
and doing stuff around the house to get it
looking like a real home and less like
a crash pad for critters and people alike...
we've had a relaxing evening at home
surrounded by good friends...
Cheers to hoping you've had a good summer as well..!
