So I am hoping there are still some of you out there reading this blog...hello? anyone? Leave me a little comment, let me know you're still around and what you've been up to.

Since my last post I have been doing a lot of driving, a little flying and mostly just having a good time.

In late May my volunteer unit took a trip to RMMC for our national MVS retreat. That trip mainly consisted of a lot of pinochle and euchre (if you don't know how to play either of those card games you definately need to learn!). And from there we spent an extended weekend in Boulder with friends.

Last week David and I flew to Indy, stayed with my cousin, and then drove with my folks and uncle out to Washington Boro, PA, joining up with my brother and sister-in-law part way. Let me just say that is a lot of traveling for two days of wedding festivities, but it was definately worth it.

I had a fabulous time with my family. As I have said before, that is the hardest thing about living all the way out here in Colorado, when the rest of my family is east of the Mississippi. So, trips like this are important to me.

Now we are home and things are still busy. There are a lot of visitors coming through the volunteer house and we had a new volunteer arrival the day before we left for PA. But, the next few weeks we'll be here, looking for jobs, and trying not to focus too much on our August transition.

I had better get back to sending out resumes, but there are lots of blog posts ahead... sweater story, stole making, spinning minis, family photos, some recipes and more.

  4. I'm still reading it!! Dev and I are doing quite a bit of travelling as well! And we're also doing the job hunt thing- in addition to getting married this week. You should come by the courthouse at 5:00, or the brew pub after 5:30 on Wednesday (17th)...we'd love to see you!

  5. Ah yes, the whole country is looking for a job. I have begun to embrace not having a real job - it is really an art! LOL. Anyways, I love the photo! :)
