Vacation all I ever wanted

And we're off to the sunny beaches of the Canary Islands. Fun, sun, SPF 1,000,000 and lots of books. And no work, no emails, no internet for the next 10 days. The Guitar Hero and I will either come back as better people or not come back at all as we will have killed each other in this no internet zone.

I'm planning to try out snorkeling for the first time. Being a Kansas girl, I don't have much seaside experience so the thoughts of "omigod, I'm going to drown" are not completely unwarranted.

If I come back with any semblance of a tan under all that SPF, I'll post a picture of that miracle.

Hello? Is this thing on?

Has it really been two months since I posted? Jeesus...
Here's the short version of what's been going on:
- Trip to the States was great. Bit stressful cause it wasn't all for fun, but got to see a lot of the country which was nice. A number of burritos were eaten. Got a great dress at Old Navy and summer shoes at Target. My hardware handbag rocked the conference in D.C. Thanks, Allie, for the shopping tip.
- My older niece graduated from high school and leaves for college in a month. That makes me old. Guess what makes me even older? Realizing I have no idea what kids take to college these days. I'm guessing quarters for the pay phone are obsolete. As are floppy disks.
- Spent June working my butt off. As in the number of hours of overtime were double the number of hours I get paid for. Finally cried uncle, which turned out to be a good thing. Should have someone assisting me soon.
- Bought a new laptop that's just the cutest thing in the world because it's so little (but has a normal keyboard - yay!).
- The Guitar Hero got a Wii so I might, just might, start working out with the Wii Fit. Because seriously, I'm getting the body of a flabby old lady. And that's just sad.
- And we're going on vacation in two weeks. 10 days of sunshine, just reading, relaxing and snorkeling (if I can figure out how!).
