So, since the 15th of July I've been on holidays. We went to Alberta and British Columbia and were home for a whole 36 hours to do laundry and reassure our cat that we hadn't totally abandoned him before going to the inlaws for 5 days of fun. We got back yesterday afternoon. It has been crazy and fun and I'm a little tired from the late nights but also very ready to get back to work - and the first week of July I was convinced I never wanted to work again, so the break was a very good thing indeed.
It seemed like no time at all and we were packed back in our rental car and driving to Calgary once more to stay with other friends...more on that tomorrow.
Meanwhile copy edits came while I was away and I am working on those as well as making sure we have some clean clothes, food in the house, and cutting the grass - as well as consoling a very miffed cat who has complained very vocally about our extended absence.
