I have a few things floating around in my head, but nothing I feel like writing a whole post about…
We are going to Montana in two weeks and I am busy putting together a waterfall itinerary for that trip. This will be my third trip to Kalispell and Glacier National Park (Eric’s second), but we’ve just done the traditional stuff and haven’t ventured far beyond the visitor’s center. Pup is all set up with Camp Bow Wow and according to our peeking in on the web cams during the last two trips, she seems to be enjoying herself.
Last weekend we booked a trip to Curacao with my dad… American Airlines reduced the miles required for many of their Caribbean destinations, so we were able to get two roundtrip tickets for 50K miles and $100. Not too shabby. We are staying at an all-inclusive resort (it was the best deal by far), so stay tuned for many photos of me enjoying champagne by the pool at completely inappropriate hours of the day.
Speaking of my dad… about two weeks ago he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. (Like how I just snuck this in?) Thankfully, it’s in the very early stages and there are a lot of options open to him. It hasn’t even been a year since my mom passed away, so this is probably hitting me even harder than it should, considering the circumstances. However, my dad is behaving very positively about the whole thing, and that is definitely helping me cope as well.
I’ve been out of work for over a month now and need to work on a good schedule to keep myself painting, exercising, looking for freelance work, and otherwise occupied… wish me luck!
