August 2008


As per usual, last night didn’t go as planned. We hit major traffic on the way home — that Sunday night construction is brutal! — so we didn’t get home until after 2:30. It’s really hard for me to get right to sleep when we get home, so I ended up lying down with Lucy and reading for a while. (As did she. It did not make for a good morning.) As a result, I’m beyond tired today; it’s taking all I have not to just go upstairs and go to bed. Taking a power nap, though, is definitely not a good idea because I’ll probably sleep until dinner time.

So, the plan at the moment — since I happily am still officially off today, I will be easing into things with baby steps. Like, for example, forcing myself to turn on the computer when that’s the last thing I want to do. If that means doing a bit of blogging and uploading more pictures (as you may have noticed, I wasn’t able to get much done yesterday thanks to my laptop not picking up a reliable connection), well that’s what it means. Maybe after a bit of that, I’ll be ready to open up email.

Stay tuned…

July was truly one of those ‘If it’s Tuesday…’ months. Beginning with the Fourth of July weekend, we were literally on the road for all but six or seven days. In fact, I am sitting here in Red Bank, NJ, on Linda’s very comfy couch, taking advantage of a few moments of relative quiet to do a bit of posting and, hopefully, get to work on uploading all these photos.

Rather than continue along with the backlog, as I’ve been doing, I think I’ll begin working my way backwards. I haven’t had the chance to download any of the pictures from the last two weeks (which, I have to be honest, number quite high), but I do want to get George and Deirdre’s wedding pics up soon, and it seems that’s as good as any place to start.

At the moment, photos are the most prominent thing, so although there were some memorable quotes that I will hopefully eventually share, I’m going to be spending some time at Flickr. I’ll post again when I have the pics up there and on Facebook.
