It’s been a really, really long last few months. Actually, the last year has been exhausting. I haven’t been home for more than a month straight since last August. I’ve been on the road so much that I am near platinum status for 2012 on Delta and June isn’t even over yet AND I only fly coach. Actually, the last month has both been intellectually and emotionally challenging and I am so glad is tough part is over. I’m home for the summer (apart from our vacation) and really excited to not be on the road.
Before we settled into our summer routine of house projects, Micah, Izzy and I, head down to Rockaway Beach in Oregon for a last minute mini vacation. Despite being home for 10 days, I had only seen Micah for about 8 hours total in the time leading up to the getaway. Micah was finishing up at his job for the year (and for good!) and went from the road to 10 days of long meetings. Poor Izzy wasn’t seeing much of either of us.
The 3 day vacation was perfect. We did nothing and that’s exactly what we needed to do. Izzy ran leash-free on the beach, Micah read and I did a jigsaw puzzle. Micah and I also visited the Tillamook cheese factory where we picked up some delicious cheese curds and I bought “supplies” for our beach vacation ornament.
We’re back to real life with lists of things we need to get done, meetings and practices scheduled and all rest. What this also means is that we’re back to posting regularly.
To celebrate summer and me being home, I’m going to share this video introduced to me by some of the teachers at Micah’s old school. I don’t know when this song got so popular but I came back from Zambia and I heard it everywhere. Micah said it was some sort of theme/joke song for the teachers at his school.
I’m pretty sure ?uestLove is using is afro pick to play his instrument. Why don’t I watch Jimmy Fallon more? Have you seen his version of Downton Abbey?
