It’s been a very busy month and the next two months aren’t going to be any better, so I figured I’d get a post in now while I can.  So what have I been up to – let’s see.  Working, working, and uh, working.  Wedding and camping last weekend, wedding this weekend, 4th of July party next weekend, huge family birthday bash at Mom’s the weekend after that.  Five days later leave for Holden Beach, North Carolina (yay!).  Home for a  week,  training class at work for a week after that, then off to San Jose, California for an SEO conference for work for a week.  My head is spinning!  The only thing keeping me in check is my excitement for both of my upcoming trips.  I get to see my long time friend, Ginny, and her sister Katie for the first time in 15 years and I’m so excited!  Beach bumming like the good ol’ days when we used to do beach vacations with our families every summer.

And I’m really looking forward to my California trip!  I’ve never been and Jason is going with me.  We have a few days after the conference to do the touristy stuff so we’re heading to San Francisco to see all the sites.  And we should have plenty of time in the evenings to see some of San Jose as well.  There will definitely be lots of photos generated from both trips!  If anyone knows of any sites or places we should visit let me know!

In other news, the fish pond is looking great now that we have it landscaped.  Just trying to rid of the algea problem.  We’re attracting a lot of new birds and dragonflies – it rocks!  Poor Lois Lane, my jack russel mix, had a siezure on Friday.  She’s done fine since, but we’re waiting on blood work to come back this week to see what’s going on.  And we’re watching her closely to see if it happens again.  I hope I don’t have an epileptic dog and hoping it was just a fluke…we’ll see.  Luckily my brother-in-law will be staying at the house while we are away on our trips so he’ll be able to keep an eye on her as well.

Sadly, that’s about it for any updates.  So now I’ll leave you with some photos (of course).
