It's been over a month. Darn it. Let's just start fresh. I can work on catching up later (never). But I really don't think anyone is sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for a recap of my July vay-cay, so we'll just move on to more pressing matters. Namely: Food.
Sorry to get so serious on a Sunday, folks. To lighten the mood:
Let's move on.
Well, fine, if you're going to beg, I guess I'll post some super neat iPhone pictures from the last month of my life.
Looks like we're going in reverse chronological order. It was my birthday! My husband was a gem, and made me breakfast, and cute dry erase board birthday signs. And flowers! And presents! It was a delight. I was spoiled rotten, by both my hubby and my family. And I got lots of cards, which is the best ever. I highly recommend birthdays. Two thumbs up. Amongst my favorite gifts is this little buddy:
In conclusion, July was a most excellent month filled with family, food, and fun. And August is shaping up to be another excellent month. I love watching the Olympics. On the one hand, they are amazingly inspiring. I watched track and field one day while I was running on the treadmill, and it motivated me to get my bum in gear and hustle up. But as I am writing this, I am watching gymnastics and thinking that I will never achieve anything even close to these 16 year olds, so I should just go ahead and eat some cookies. And then I'm even more depressed, because I don't even have any chocolate chips.
We have 6 more weeks in Altus, and then we begin a nomadic period of life during which we'll go to Del Rio, put our belongings in a truck, move them up to Spokane, put them in a storage unit, find a house, and then move our stuff from the storage unit to the house. I better start pumping some serious iron to keep up with all that heavy lifting. Anywho. I'm dying for Spokane and to have a house and to be reunited with all of our things. It's going to be like Christmas!
I can't think of a nice way to wrap up this post, so here's a picture of Abby shaking off after going swimming:
