Today was my last ever day of summer vacation, ever, for the rest of my life. Tomorrow though, will be my last ever first day of school (in theory, though I will likely get a MS or MBA eventually).
Last weekend, we went to bay City, hung out for a while at my Mom’s, then to Hooligan’s for a while. Good to see all the guys from the Library, and talked to Todd for a bit about his wedding to get some ideas for ours.
Sunday morning, Casey (Dad’s dog) got sprayed by a skunk, so he had to cancel going to Ren Fest with us to clean him up. My brother was short on cash, so he was a no. So, Jenn and I went off on our own. My dad called us when we were about to Bridgeport to see if we had left yet, we offered to wait for him but weren’t up to going back. He said no, so we kept going.
Ren fair was a lot bigger than Battle Creek’s, but kind of blah since we had just been to one a few weeks ago. I was complemented three times on my kilt, and once on my “Pluto Replies” t-shirt. We shot some archery, saw a 4 man joust, I got a t-shirt, and got a nice tan.
When we were finished there, we drove up to Garland to check them out. We got half off as we were looking at a wedding there. We had dinner, slept for the night, then met with the wedding coordinator in the morning. It is a very beautiful place, and we are certainly interested. Too many questions left though that we need to figure out on our own, and were not ready to commit to it.
Spent the week relaxing. My biggest accomplishment was probably attaining Pro level at WiiSports Golf.
Yesterday Dane and Greg moved in so we went to El Burrito to catch up then went for a round of Disk Golf. We made it through 14, played 15 – 17 as speed rounds, and called it too dark to do 18.
We gained 2 new family members Friday night. Got a second Jack Dempsey and a snail, that are in a second aquarium. As they are rather small, I don’t trust Jill not to pick on or outright eat them, so they are in my old 2.5 gallon. It is way too old to keep them very long, but until I feel thay can go in the big one it will suffice. When we move next year and are settled in, maybe I will get a 55 or 70 gallon for everyone to stay in.
I was right on my computer, it returned on Monday. Unfortunately, I wasn’t here, so I didn’t get it until Tuesday. It’s all fixed though so I am happy so long as it doesn’t reoccur.
OK, thats all for now. Will let you all know how classes are Wednesday evening or so.
BTW, 1 week to my birthday!
