I realized today that I've hardly blogged in the past two weeks or so. My excuse is that I've been pretty busy. I mean, hello. Moving 10,000 miles here, thank you.
This past weekend, the defecta came out to visit me, and it was a Trifecta reunion! Sometimes it was hard thinking of new things to do in the STG, but my hair dresser suggested Red Cliffs (which has natural water slides and pools to swim in), and I like to think that this was a win idea! Less winning was when I thought one member of the Trifecta was about to drown and die (I won't mention any names here so as not to cause embarrassment to the guilty party). Also less winning was the sunburn I got (major fry on my shoulders; I don't even remember the last time I burned (I used to never burn! Ever!), so sunscreen wasn't something I even thought of until it was way too late), but that has gone away for the most part by now. Just in time for me to go again this Saturday (and hopefully not fry; I will wear the sunscreen this time)!
What else has been going on... Well, a lot of freaking out has been happening, but that's to be expected, I think. Dad also recently got an iPad, so we've been playing with the Photobooth app that is on there. And, because I love you all and think you deserve a good laugh (also because I am pretty confident and don't mind people laughing at me), I give you the following. If you don't laugh, then chances are you'll either have nightmares or you have no soul. (There are much funnier pictures, but I am not quite that confident in myself that I am going to post them for the whole world to see!)
Sometime very soon I need to actually pack my bags, but I'm waiting to do that until after I go to Costco tomorrow (everyone loves Costco, right? I mean, granted, it's my first time actually shopping there, and only my 4th time going in a Costco, but, it'll be fine, right?).
Anyway. I'm still alive! Chances are good there won't be much of any real updates again until after I get to Taiwan, so hopefully this can tide you over.
Also, hey, Skype me if you're not a stranger and we think of each other as friends. That would be good.
