I'm glad that I'm able to work ahead, since I'm planning a lot of travel in the month of September. It will be nice to finish all my assignments ahead of time rather than every night at a hotel with crappy internet.
Where am I traveling, did you ask? : )
Well, next weekend I'm going to go see Andrew to celebrate my birthday. By celebrating I mean probably watching movies and swimming at one of local lakes in the area. We also might go to the Oklahoma City Zoo, but that is still undecided.
And towards the end of the month after Andrew graduates from tech school I will be heading down again to drive with him to California. He'll be there for about two months before we officially move to our new home. We're going to make our five day drive a little more like a vacation, with a side-drive to the Grand Canyon, and two nights in Yosemite! I've never been to Yosemite or the Grand Canyon, so I am very excited. And very happy to be doing these things with Andrew.
Last weekend mom and me drove to North Dakota for a semi-family reunion. My uncle Pat, who has been in living in California for years finally agreed to get together with the family! It had been 20 or so years. I was very small the last time I saw him and his wife, Cheri. It was wonderful to see them and enjoy family time with all my uncles and aunt together. : )
I'm hoping on my way back from California, I'll be able to stop by at their place and visit before heading back home.
I'm pretty excited to drive back from California, I drove to Texas and back all by myself. But, if you didn't know, the midwest is pretty flat. Coming from west to east, there are mountains!
I'm looking forward to a different scenery.
I'll be posting pictures from my ND weekend sometime later.

Dakota always has fun outside, even more fun when I'm relaxing instead of chasing him around trying to make him tired : )
Today while laying on my stomach reading, he apparently thought it was the funniest thing to run around the yard and finish with an Over-the-Hattie jump. I should look into some agility classes for my circus dog.
Hoping for more days and sunny afternoons like this.

Arson doesn't like new people, he spits and hisses, it takes him a while to get used to people and warm up to them.
So that is our wonderful, angry, cute and fussy orange cat, that isn't named Oliver.
