I know I’ve been neglectful of the blog lately, but honestly, it’s really hard to come up with anything interesting and relevant when we’re all three in different areas. So, I thought I would just give a little update on how we’re all handling things and show a few pictures from Jake’s time on the farm.

my good friend Ray (he slacked off for me).
Thanks to my other good friend, Glenda for sending
me the pic.
As for mommy, I finally started my job. I wasn’t sure that was ever going to happen… I’m enjoying going into the office every day, getting a little socialization of my own, dressing up (except for the heels), and using my brain in a way that hasn’t happened in quite some time (I forgot how large my co-worker’s vocabulary actually was!). On the after hours side, well, I’m going to start being a grown up next week. I think without Jake and Andy and any real responsibilities, I forgot I was pushing 40 and not 25. Aside from my extensive time with friends, I’ve really gotten into my running (I completed a 5K this weekend and actually ran a 9:31 min mile….I’m a slow poke and normally can’t break 10 min.) and I joined a Crossfit Gym. I’m hoping to dazzle Andy when I get back with my transformation J.
How is Andy handling his newfound freedom? He’s been to the Rock Islands a couple of times, hanging out with the other bachelor in the anchorage. He’s done some diving/picture taking, of course. But I think mostly he’s been working on the boat. He’s repainted our deck, refinished our countertops, and fixed numerous mechanical issues that have popped up recently. Oh yea, the list wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t tell you he flooded the water tanks again and has spent a fair amount of time cleaning up (not sure when he’ll learn that lesson!). Overall, I think he’s doing fine. He’s kind of the loner in the group so all in all, he might be getting some peace he didn’t know he was craving (or maybe he did?). He’ll head out in another 3 weeks or so and pick Jake up from OK and bring him back to Palau.
So there you have it, the latest update. Apologies for the lack of pictures…if I ever get paid, I plan on buying another camera complete with ability to upload pictures. In the meantime, thanks to my mother-in-law for keeping us posted with pictures of Jake!
