Summer's Tribulations

Well, I sure have been awol haven't I? It has been a busy summer and looks like the start of school is just as busy. I'll try to get back into the grove soon, really....

Of course you all know that Pan's boss died in a motorcycle accident at the end of June and we had that to deal with and the worry about whether Pan would even have a job. That has worked out quite well. Then we ended up with the kids more than I expected (not that I'm complaining, yet, LOL). And Pan ended up out of town more than a few times.

In August we took a trip to Las Vegas (my birthday present from Pan) to see the Star Trek Experience. Good thing too, since they closed it September 1. While we enjoyed ourselves it was disappointing to find all the shops but one on the promonade closed and that one didn't have much of anything.

In order to plan for that time off, I had to work more. Still more when we got back because it was the end of the month.

Pan's sister, who we haven't seen, came into town and we spend the weekend with her and Pan's parents. I also stopped by my sister's and picked up an old photo album to scan.

You know writing it down, doesn't sound like I did a lot, but it sure seemed busy and full while I was doing it :)

Actually I think it sounds like you were very busy Tink. One think leads into the next and before you know it you've lost two months and have no idea where they went.

Glad to hear that Pan's employment future is stable again and that even though the Star Trek Experience was a bit disappointing, you still had a good birthday trip.

Hope the pace eases off for you a bit now.

good to know things with Pan's job are working out well! I know, sometimes it seems so busy and yet not much seems done, but it is the living it that means something, and you had a full summer in that sense! you take care! yin
