    Wow, I blinked and it's the second week of August already.
    Seems like just a week ago and schools were getting out, now we're getting our stuff ready for back-to-school. Personally, it sort-of stinks for kids today because we never went back until after labor day when I grew up, but times do change.

    Summer for me involved me transitioning to being full-time self-employed. That took a lot of time. Then my folks came down for a month, we did a lot with them.

    Took a 12-day trip to Florida/Louisanna. Then just took another short trip down to San Antonio. We've spent some time, but not enough, in the pool at the gym as well.

    Just worked. :( But I've got some time-off at the end of the month/beginning of September to go dove hunting.

    Worked to secure a huge project for my employer, unfortunately after securing the project I was informed not only was I placed as the program manager, but the project time line was moved to begin immediately and my vacation for the end of summer had to be cancelled. So all my late summer travel plans are cancelled.
    The end of August and most of September was to be vacation time, I had a 8 day motorcycle trip to Key West planned, come for 5 days then fly to Hawaii for 8 days, on the way back from Hawaii we planned on stopping over in California for 5 days.
    Instead Ill keep working.
    At least the wife got to take the grandaughter on a month long trip out west, even if it did end a little more exciting than they wanted.

    How many miles was that move? Is that for good, for now, for work, for school, for love? :)

    Where is your trip going to take you?

    That sucks. I had that happen before and one word of advice my dad gave me when I graduated was that I should never bite off more than I could chew, and that if you get into the position where you get to offer advice for future projects, you might be the one that ends up running it if they like it. That's the good/bad of the coin I guess. They like you, but that means they really like you and need you.
