The Summit Fire

I finally made it home for a visit, and what do I get? A giant wildfire coming towards our house!! I sent out an email with a bunch of pictures that my dad took from the neighbors, but if you did not get it and want to see them, let me know. Also here are some some pretty cool pictures for the SJ Mercury News.

We are still doing ok here at the house, but we are packed and ready to leave if/when needed. The flames are getting pretty close; less than about 2 miles from here, but we have our fingers crossed. I was supposed to be going back to SD tonight, but seeing as we can't leave the house, I did not make my flight. Instead, I should be flying home Saturday night.

I will post updates as they come.

Finally Done (Half Way Done at Least)...

I have finally made it through my first year of graduate school. Only one more to go...so I hope at least. Then what?? I have no idea...maybe another Master's, maybe a PhD, maybe take some time off and go back later, who really knows?!? I have a while to decide that one.

On a happier note, I am finally going home for a few days, leaving on Sunday night. Too bad I am going to most likely miss Susannah in town (evil eye going out to Susannah!!), but that just gives me more of a reason to go to NYC (which, I will do one of these days, I swear)! I will return to San Diego on Thursday just in time to work for a few days, then I take off again...this time for Portland to see Angie!!!! Woohoo!

It's gonna be a really busy couple of weeks, but it will be a lot of fun, seeing my family (Marlie and the Fat Man too!!!!!!), and Angie. And when it is all over, I am coming home to start working full time! Gotta love those summer months with no student loans!!

No school til Spetember!!!!!!!!!! Yippee!!!! ;)
