Just so you know

Posted by on Friday, July 24th, 2009

The TWO surgeries my Mom has had still haven’t gotten all of the cancerous cells, so she has to have a mastectomy.  Just thinking about it makes me think very violent thoughts,  so let’s move on.

We’re skipping Celtic Summer Camp this year for the first year in a very long time.  It’s bittersweet–I will absolutely miss spending that time with my tribe in the woods, but it’s not the most relaxing way to spend a vacation, and our minds are understandably elsewhere.  Instead, we’re heading out to Utah at the end of August to see Scott’s family and then up to Wyoming to see the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone.  I am really looking forward to the whole trip.  We haven’t been on a vacation like this since our honeymoon, and our honeymoon was practically local and very modest.

I’m using the trip out West as an excuse to buy a proper camera.  It should be here within a week or so, and I’m excited to play with it.  I’m lucky enough to have lots of friends and family members who are experienced digital photographers, so I’m sure I can get some great tips from them.  If I’m really lucky, I’ll even be able to borrow a decent lens or two.

    Sending healing thoughts to your mom…

    Have a great time in WY-my boyfriend and I go there every July 4th week! If you get a chance, take a drive on the beartooth highway. We drove that for the first time this year (our 5th year going out there!) and this was some of the most fab scenery I have ever seen! And, if you go to Teton Village, have beer at the Mangy Moose!
