Family Gathering for the 4th

Today, we had our first full family (L’s parents / my mother and grandfather — yes, a small family) gathering post announcements about the pregnancy and “rest of the story” (i.e., knocked up after infertility treatment — more on that later) . Like always, I was the primary “chef” and opted to serve fairly typical barbecue fare. I can certainly do better in the kitchen, but I was being lazy… almost to the point of feeling guilty for my lack of effort. This really was a walk in the park (despite nearly everything being homemade). :-)

Anyway, I still have more to relate from the prior week, but I’ve been busy with holiday prep work and other stuff.

I’ll try to write more tomorrow, prior to my travels on Monday. July is going to be a busy month. I’m currently slated to be on the road 3 out of 4 weeks.

    When I was working full-time, my job required full-time travel. At one point, for about a year, I saw my home 2 weekends a month! Fortunately, I only traveled in the West, so no long haul flights, but it definitely takes it out of you. Here’s hoping July goes by very quickly for you!

    Also, very, very exciting about the column! Such a great thing to be able to write for a living, or at least for a publication. Congrats!
