I don't know what to write about. It's July. It's hot. We haven't had any rain in weeks; I've had to put the sprinkler system on every day so as not to burn the grass. And because we planted so many perennials we're spending close to an hour at night watering them (some aren't reached by the sprinkler).
I bought some new t-shirts at Target last weekend. They were vintage advertisements: Enjoy Coke, Give a Hoot Don't Pollute and the
This weekend I have the painter coming back to freshen up the back porch. He put two coats of stain on it in the spring yet it stills a little dull. I think it needs a coat of polyurethane or something.
With my new assignment at work, I don't have as many meetings. I forgot what it was like to actually sit at my desk and get work done. It's nice!
Chris is on call all week. Yuck! This usually dampers something. Either it's a call at 2:30 in the morning and then I can't fall back to sleep or in the middle of grocery shopping we have to head into Boston or plans get canceled because someone can't breath. Oh well, that's the price he pays so he doesn't have to be on call when he's on vacation.
Chris is taking the last week of July off. I'm taking just one (maybe two) days(s). He's doing local stuff with our friend Didi, whose plant is on shut down and his Goddaughter. He'll also be doing stuff at the rental property. There's usually a couple weeks a year where we are not on the same vacation schedule. For me it's Christmas time; I have off for two weeks and he just the holidays and an extra day or two.
Our next vacation-vacation is Labor Day week when we go up to Bar Harbor. I want to say I can't wait but that would be wishing the summer away. It is a lot of fun and Bandit gets to come with us.
We also just booked a Florida trip in April. We're going to Universal Studios to see Harry Potter and then over to the west coast (hopefully no tar balls) and renting a condo on the beach with Chris' family. During that trip, I won't be on Florida's east coast so won't get a chance to see my Mom. I need to book another flight to go down sooner, maybe in the fall.
Alright, that's enough...quite a bit for someone who didn't know what he was going to write about.
