I can't believe it's been TWO MONTHS since I posted the last time! Oh well, it has been a busy summer.
My summers are always busy at work. In fact, summer is my busiest season. That makes me appreciate "flex time"; they give us the option of working an altered schedule from mid-May to mid-August. We can work the standard five 8-hour days; four 9-hour days and one 4-hour day; or four 10-hour days. I opt for the four 10-hour days. That way I have a 3-day weekend every week in the summer. It's really great, especially for camping weekends.
Alas, flex time is now over and I'm back on the standard five 8-hour day week. *drudge, drudge* I haven't camped in August because the heat has been just unbearable. This is a real issue since I camp in a tent (no A/C!!). However, I have a reservation to go back to Grindstone this Friday for the Labor Day weekend. Temperatures are supposed to be back down in the 80's in town, so the campground should be nice and cool. *loving it already*
I plan to sing with the local Madrigal singers again this season; our first rehearsal is tonight. It should be a lot of fun.
The latest excitement in my normally hum-drum world is that Kris and Louise are planning to visit in December. I've been almost afraid to get excited for fear that it wouldn't work out, but things are looking really promising. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! While I'd love to have a little snow while they're here (just so it would be really Christmassy), I hope the weather's good so we can go take a few day trips.
Well, I've been killing a little time waiting for some information to come in from another department for processing, and it just arrived. So, back to work!
