Backpacking/Hiking

Well, I'm leaving tomorrow sometime for Ohio, and I still don't really know when we're leaving or where we're really going. The 4 of us haven't seen each other since we decided to take this trip, so this should be an "adventure." =D

I keep saying that "this isn't my trip." Usually I get super-involved with the planning/shopping/preparation for these things, and I've chosen not to do that this time around. All responsibility has be placed completely on the shoulders of Chip and Steve. Chip is married now, and Steve is moving out to California for a real job, so I figure since they should be responsible adults/college grads (and I am still a lowly super-senior living with the Parental Units), that they should be the ones to do all the work. =D

This is probably going to blow up in my face! Ha ha. Personally, I think it's going to be fun, because it's supposed to be freezing and rainy. Haha, if anything, we'll definitely remember it!

After the Philippines, I really believe I can pretty much handle any environmental condition. If I can handle extreme heat, then I suppose I can live through freezing cold. And I was practically soaking wet for 5 months in the Phil, either because of rain or sweat! =D

This is going to be good... I'll post more about it when I get back!

ps- "parental units" isn't meant to be insulting. =D I just think it's funny!

Back to work...

Well, I started work again today. Not much has changed...even my files are still in the cabinet with all of my out-of-date pizza coupons and stuff. =D It's nice to be back, and things are picking up for the summer, which is good. We're doing summer camps again this year, so registration and all of that is keeping me busy.

I'm going backpacking with Steve, Chip, and Megan when Mom and Dad go to southwest Michigan! We're going down to the Ohio/West Virginia boarder for a weekend, which should be fun. It's not really a camping hotspot, but it's warmer than Michigan! =D

I'm adjusting well...still moving at the slower pace, but that's ok. Have a great week!

I'm Home!

Hey! I made it back without problems. Got a little sick on the plane, but I survived. It's nice to be back... My laptop is fixed now as well, so that's good.

I had a good time with Aryn and Tim in Washington. We went skiing again, and just sort of laid low. It was a nice and relaxing trip.

I stopped into work today, and it appears I can start working as early as April 14, so that will be really good. I wasn't too excited about sitting around the whole month of April. It was also really great to see everyone from work. =D

Have a good week!
