Back, but heading out again...

I had a really nice time up north among the pine trees. I had my bedroom window open at night and it was great to hear the wind blowing through the trees. It was pretty warm up there during the day (high 90's), but it cooled way down at night. Here in Phx it's been really HOT (112 degrees) and there is no cooling down. It's getting to that time of year when it stays hot all day and night.

I didn't really get any digital scrapbooking done. I messed around a little bit with some pages, but was having a MAJOR mental block. I think I need to sit down and really think about how I would like to set up Lauren's first year book, which will also serve as a life book. Where do I want to start? What do I want to say? I need to get my thoughts in order before I start. If anyone is putting together a similar book, I would love to hear your ideas.

This Thursday evening after work, I'm heading to Carlsbad, CA with a friend of mine. She's house sitting for a friend of hers who lives really close to the beach, so I'm hoping to get in some major relaxation and some sun. We also got tickets for Sea World, which should be fun because I haven't been there in years. I'll be there for almost a full week of fun and sun!

I hope all my Blogville friends don't think I'm constantly running off and leaving my poor hubby behind. Joe started a new job this past year and only has five vacation days left this year, which we are saving for a trip. I, on the other hand, have TONS of vacation time so I figured I might as well use some up and have some fun. Sorry, Joe!

I miss living in CA because of the beach and the wine. I don't miss the LA traffic. Have fun. I totally understand ditching hubby. I do it all summer long but that's because I live in the south and go north for nicer summers.

The trip North with the Pine and the cooler days and nights sound great!!! Have a terrific time in S Cal. I just love Sea World!!!

I bought on line somewhere a book that teaches you how to do a lifebook for your child adopted from China. I can't think of the name or author right now, but it was a little manual with ideas on what to say, what to capture, how to word it, etc. Good writing techniques, etc. I think it will help you organize (which is the hardest part)
I'll get the name and get it to you.
