May 31


A pretty miserable day today.

I thought for a few hours that I was going to let it get to me, but I guess I just decided that it wasn't worth it.

Thankfully I have a lot to look forward to in the next six weeks or so.
  • working towards a new career
  • having dinner with an old friend
  • my birthday
  • a pig roast
Oh, and there will be a HUGE post (easily my longest ever) coming in the next few days.

See you soon...

I'm okay now...I think.

For the last two days I have been as sick as I have ever been in my life. Wow. Not good.

However, it appears I am on the mend, so more, bigger, better(?) posts to follow.

HIking in Maryland

I'm just back from my yearly hike with my best friend, Dan. Once again I trekked down to Maryland, which is about as boring a six hour drive as you could take in this country.

This year we hiked in Cunningham Falls State Park and Catoctin National Park. This year's hike was shorter than last year's, but there was much less flat ground, and what there was was studded with rocks- a bit rough on the feet. And, as you can see from my friend's boots, it was a little rough on some of the equipment. Luckily, I brought enough duct tape to get him through the last six miles of the hike.

I am happy to say that next year Dan will be heading north to hike a trail of my choosing for the first time. I am looking forward to it!

Here She Is!

Here's a picture of my niece, Sadie Claire. She is just over a week old now and it looks like my brother and his wife are going to keep her. This is good because I am looking forward to being a bad influence on her much as my aunt was on me. Also, I am happy that I live too far away to be asked to babysit.
