I know I posted a couple of times this past week, but you may have noticed I was being a bit vague as to what I had been up to. Maybe you didn't notice, in which case, mission accomplished. In your face.
I was being vague because I was on vacation!!! Joel had to attend a solar conference in Orlando, FL, and I decided he should never get to do anything fun without me, so I tagged along. He hates it when I put stuff about going on vacation in a public forum--let's be honest, he hates it when I put anything at all about our lives in a public forum--so I promised not to mention being out of town on my blog until we returned. And because I don't like people robbing us either, I upheld that promise.
You'll be happy to know that while I was on vacation, I wrote about what I was doing and how things were going, and I saved each and every one for you. My plan is to post them on the days that I wrote them only one week ahead, while we're actually here to keep the burglars who read my blog out of the house (keep up now, if I wrote it on Saturday of last week, I'll post it on Saturday of this week, get it? Good.).
But because I know you can't wait, here's a sneak preview of the vacay:
Clearly, we had a rip-roaring good time. More to come later.
Also, during my trip, I came up with some super fun and super cool new stuff for my blog that you'll be seeing over the next few months and even over the next year! (Yes, I do plan some of this rambling out in advance.) I know you're about to pee your pants you're so excited. AND, Joel gave me his old Mac laptop to start blogging from, which means that shit is getting real, guys. Now I can lie in bed and blog and comment without my iPad being an asshole. I'm pumped.
And one more thing, for your photo-viewing enjoyment. I took my little mansy, Jack, to a festival Owensboro had last weekend called the East Bridge Art Festival (although, as my sis-in-law pointed out, the bridge is absolutely north), and we had all kinds of fun. Then we had a mini belated bday party for him at the farm since we would miss his party on Sunday. Here are some pics of that!

|I swear this is a dress, and that I didn't go pantless to a festival|
|My brother helped draw that shit, ya'll. So cool.|
|Jack and friends: bunch of monkeys|

(Such a sweet pic of Joel and Jack)
Everyone have a great Friday, and if you'll excuse me, it's 5:00 and time to start drinking. :)
