Too busy

So I realized I haven't blogged in almost 4 weeks, but in my defense, most of my blogging was done at my laid back, nothing-to-do job and the job I currently have keeps me busy all day. So I work 8 hours, come home and usually have to write 5 or 6 articles; throw in quality friend time a few times a week and you get no new post in 3 weeks. Anyway, here's a bullet list of what I've been up to all month (besides work):

  • the midnight showing of Harry Potter 5--a most excellent movie
  • an ice blocking outing (ice blocking: sliding down a hill on a block of ice a.k.a. sledding for summer) in which the ice block flies and gouges out a chunk of my chin. I had a chin crater and now a sweet scar
  • transition from writing about beauty to writing about money. I now know all about financing a car, payday loan companies, and bridge loans.
  • a disco themed birthday party complete with dancing and costumes
  • dinner with some old friends from church I haven't seen in a couple of years
  • THE 7TH HARRY POTTER BOOK!!!!!!!!! It was most amazing--I laughed, I cried, I read for 6 hours straight. The perfect end to the epic Harry Potter tale.
  • The purchase of the 7th HP audio CDs. Now I can listen to it all I want!
  • Boating at Chatfield Reservoir
  • Jessie, Timm, and Bella driving through on their way to NC--I was a bit blue.
  • Unbearably hot house--average temperature upstairs: 87 degrees. Ew.
So, as you can see I've been busy this July, but then again who isn't? The heat is by far the most disgusting part of the summer. This is what the butter looks like in our kitchen (it's just sitting there):
How sick is that?

Welcome back to the blogging world. You have been busy it all sounds like so much fun except for the ice taking out a chunk of your chin, ouch!
I love love loved Harry Potter 7 wow what a great ending.
Glad to hear your summer is going so well, can't wait to see you in the Fall.

That is the sickest picture I have ever seen. It makes me queasy and hot just to look at it! Today is not so bad in the house--only 80 degrees.

Oh dear. The butter melting in its dish gives such a visual of the heat! We do have air conditioning, but it isn't doing the job. By the end of the day our house is always 80 degrees. I complain about that -- I can't imagine 87?!

You've definitely been busy, but it sounds like a fun summer at home. Except for the whole heat thing, that's rough.
