Just checking in…

Pretty sure this is some randomness coming here…consider it written diarrhea, maybe?

It sure seems like this summer is flying by! I’ve got less than 2 weeks left until I have to return to work, and less than 3 before I see a new set of kiddos again! I just can’t believe it.

I’m glad we will be getting a family vacation before school starts again, but I really can’t get my head into it. I guess it’s all the errands I’ve had to run, and packing I’ve had to do. I’ll get there though, right?
Also, I think one of my camera lenses is sick. My 55-200mm lens is making a funny noise when it tries to auto focus. I took it in, and the store said they had to send it back to Nikon. They think it is something to do with the gears. I can’t do without it right now, so it will have to wait until school starts again.
Oh, and I won and I’ve already received a Starbucks gift card from the lovely Holly at Anglohile Football Fanatic. In fact, I’ve already purchased and enjoyed a frozen lemonade. It tasted like it had a hint of mint in it…am I imagining things?

So, I hope you all are enjoying your summers and the last couple days/weeks before school starts up again!
