Falling Off The Face Of The Earth


I can't believe I'll be in Santa Fe in one week! Ack! The kids are still not done with school. Isn't that ridiculous? Thanks to snow days tacked onto the end-of-the-year schedule, we are still going until Wednesday. It makes me sad. We really only have two months of summer vacation!

And I plan to make the most of it.

We are starting with a trip to Santa Fe, then visits to Newport and Vermont. Natty is doing her first sleep-away camp to the mountains of western Mass this summer. And Cristian is doing a fabulous community service camp to New Orleans for two weeks. (And then driver's ed camp. Gulp.)

I will try to check in when I can. But I think I'll be falling off the face of the earth for a while. Which is not such a bad thing. I've been massively spring-cleaning this past month, and I think it's time to "spring-clean" my career. Although I honestly don't know what that means. But maybe I'll figure it out by the end of the summer.

Then I can write that back-to-school essay "What I Learned Over Summer Vacation"...

We'll see. :^)



I hope all of you have a wonderful summer. If anyone needs to get in touch with me for emergency purposes (finding hot beardy guys on the Internet, etc), email me!

Happy Summer!
Penelope

Have fun in Santa Fe. I went to school there. If you're planning on going to Taos let me know and we might be able to have dinner together!

Have you ever gone to the Chocolate Maven in Santa Fe? Absolutely wonderful!!!

Oh, Tasha just told me she already told you about that. Well, watch out for the Old Santa Fe circular street. It has some kind of weird force that won't let you leave. :-)
