A lot of things happened over the summer some good some really bad. Of course we went to our annual pirate fest in June, and we stopped in at the California Academy of Science in San Francisco. Great place for the nerd in me to hang out for the day. I got to touch a dinosaur bone, mark that off the bucket list. But July was not so nice to my family. I lost my dog, almost lost my husband, suffered illness, and had home and mechanical problems. August brought in some good luck so far. My great niece was born yesterday. It was a hard birth, but mom and baby are fine. Miss Kinsley Maryann has some lungs on her. Today I finally have an itch to actually write. Because of the rough summer I have had no urge to even look at my computer or even work on anything. So maybe I can get back to it.
