Everything Changes

Change is a part of life, we all know it and we all come to expect it. But really now friends, have I accidentally distanced myself too long to where EVERYONE has had a major change? If you look to my left at my daily readings everyone has had a major change.

The Janii has settled in her cross country move and her sister is married off now.
SM2 is another year older (and traveled to Seattle)
Mel-o-Drama and family are relocating (and she went to her writer's convention)
The Pioneer Woman has given away a gigantic Photo Contest prize that I missed.

Sigh...I have no exciting dramatic news. The only change we have made is that we are a little "greener" - we bought a Prius. It's nifty and will help out hubby on gas costs. He averaged 48 mpg on his way to Alabama this morning. Go us, doing our part....I guess? (Sorry no pics - I need to get a new battery for the camera.)

We have been skiing in the boat these past few weekends. Let me rephrase that - I have been sitting in the bow of the boat being chauffeured around the lake whilst I drink my beverage and tan. I'm glad we bought the vessel and fixed it up ourselves - I have more of an appreciation for her.

My only fun friend in Koz has traveled to Florida for a full week and I am lost, so I thought I'd tackle the slowness of this DOS era desktop we have inherited. I can't complain - she does her job, slowly, but surely. I better post this incase she gets a little crazy and stops working.

I miss you all and keep on changing and I'll do my best to keep up!

Best Wishes

I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July! I did a little cleaning and went swimming and then headed to a friends house to watch the fireworks. It was low key - hubby wasn't in town.

We finally got our boat from the boat repair guy, 2 months later. Can't complain because he did a great job on the couple of things we needed tuned up and charged us "half of what it would have cost anywhere else" - - - I still thought it was expensive, but everyone else was raving on what a great deal it was. So long story short, the boat is in motion. We went out on it Sunday and had a good time, then lounged in the lake. I'll get pictures this weekend because I know we'll be going out again. I'm still a little weenie when it comes to doing things aquatic because of my ear - even though it is fine and healed. I'm a little over protective of it.

Saturday night we held the after party of the 1997 Kosciusko Class Reunion. My sister in law brought a caravan of people over around 11:30 pm and they didn't leave until 2:30 am. I on the other hand went to bed around 1:15am - I'm the hostess with the mostest, right?

New job is still going well. Since we have had 2 Monday's this week I was able to stick around my desk and work on a project with the other analysts. It has been good so far, but I miss chit chatting with FNCers throughout the day. I also miss my Solitaire Showdown Tournaments.

Ok team, I am off now. Sorry I have nothing exciting or insightful to leave you with. Have a good day!
