Dudes, it is the end of July. Don't bother double-checking your calendar - I already did and it is indeed the last weekend of July. At least it is a long weekend but this also means we're running out of summer long weekends.
They say time flies when you're having fun so I guess we've been having a lot of fun. I do have to say these past few weeks have been really good. My health is back on track - I often forget I have ulcerative colitis.... I'm back to full-time training again. I've got a new job that I really enjoy. Marc is doing super well - and we're both looking forward to Belgium again this winter.
One thing that is new and I forgot to tell you about is my new computer. My 2007 Macbook died on Friday. So now I have a brand new and shiney MacBook Air. I love this computer (as much as I can love a computer). It is so smooth. No more ten minutes of waiting for Firefox to start. No more restarting everyday. No more randomly deleted text. Now I just have a sleek machine that does what I want it to when I tell it to. Nice.
The week has been pretty steady. Nothing too groundbreaking. Murphy seems to be loving this hot weather and just wants to get outside to eat grasshoppers and patrol the yard. He has taken to sleeping outside. I'm thinking he is really going to hate December. Though this outdoor lifestyle is doing nothing for his girth - somehow I thought he'd lose some weight with this outdoor activity. But lieing around and sleeping are the same - wherever you do them!
Well, I hope you've got a good long weekend to look forward to. If it were up to me, I'd eat gelato everyday, drink copious mugs of steaming chai, eat Indian, Lebanese, Mexican, and Vietnamese food everyday, and end it all with a few good books and movies. But this is a lot to pack into one long weekend even for a type "A" like me - so I'd stick to eating as much gelato as humanly possible - only requirement is that all flavors must have the word chocolate in them! Happy gelato headache!
