Our money situation has kept us home the last couple summers. James started his CAD training last summer, so I was home alone with the dog and cats most of the summer (with my car in the shop, I was REALLY at home most of the time). James will finish his training in June, so who knows what the summer will bring. He might find a job in Charlotte, which means we will stay put, but there is a real possibility we will have to move when he finds a job. My cousin in Hesperia, California said there is a possibility they might have some CAD openings, so moving back to California could even be a possibility (although I am checking the prices while I am visiting in California, and I don't think we will ever be able to afford to live here). So our summer plans are really up in the air--I just know they include James finding a good CAD job and me looking for a good teaching job.

Lots of yardwork, play with my kids, going camping, family reunions, the usual. And a trip to the amusement park with my exchange student.

I just gave you krama kitty for mentioning Burning man. Paul and I have a friend that goes every year. He's known as ROADKILL... he's an expert fire starter. First one of paul's friends that I ever met... had me worried for awhile since he showed up with two dead racoons in the back of his truck ( he skins them and uses the hide) and wearing an outfit that he'd made from deer leather.

This will be my 5th year, I took the last 2 years off since we were living over here.

It's great fun, although not for everyone! It has changed quite a bit, growing more and more every year. I'd prefer the way it was when I first went in 2002, but I still love going out there with all my friends.
