Still Kickin'

First off, I really didn't mean to go so long without posting. Many of you have sent me emails asking if everything was alright, I really do appreciate your concern and I apologize for not getting back to everyone sooner.

Yes, everything is fine here in the neighborhood. I've thoroughly enjoyed taking this last month off. The Brain and I have spent many days lounging around by the pool and many nights sitting around watching the fireflies and eating frozen yogurt. This last month has been a break that I think we really needed.

We traveled to the Land of Mormon's for a couple of weeks around the fourth and had the privilege of attending something called The Stadium of Fire in Provo. Thirty thousand people all waiving American flags... it was something to see! We visited with my mother's family and toured around the area seeing the sites. By the time we got home I was ready for a vacation from my vacation... isn't that always how it is?

As for me, things are chugging right along. It's looking like the job that I was offered won't be starting for quite some time as everyone seems to be floundering with budgeting issues. I'm looking for work and trying to plot out my next move. It's hard to know what to do sometimes but I think everything is working out the way that it's supposed to. That really is a nice feeling.

Agent C and I have been able to speak regularly on the phone and more often than not these days I find myself passing entire nights talking to him. I'm not sure how that happens and I'm not sure what happened to the girl that used to loath phone conversations, but I think for now I'll just accept this for what it so obviously is: a gift. Every time we speak I learn something new, he makes me think, he makes me laugh, he makes me happy. He should be arriving in the area within the next couple of months; I'm really excited that this is finally happening. I think he and I have both earned this chance, we've certainly worked hard enough for it. It's been a long, long road to get to this point, but it was worth it.

Anyway, job searching, marathon phone calls, lounging around pool side, vacations, and mapping out the rest of my life have kept me pretty busy. School starts back for The Brain in a couple of weeks so I'll be making a more regular return then. Until then I haven't been shot at in months and I couldn't be happier about that. Life is good!

I'll try and make the rounds to check in with everyone sometime soon. Until then, have a great summer!
