I’ve been in a bit of a funk the last few days. I’ve taken no photos. It’s not that we haven’t been busy, or that I haven’t had my camera with me.
Maybe it’s the incredible heat that has been with us for the last month or so (as of June 18 we’ve had 14 100+ degree days in Austin!). And it’s still spring! We are back on the lake, though, thank goodness.
Maybe it’s the work thing dragging me down… there’s sooo much to juggle, struggling with how to make progress by the end of each day.
Maybe it’s all the things on my todo-list in my head that aren’t getting done. We have so few commitments outside of ourselves and work, compared to other families. But why is it I can’t seem to get all the stuff done that I want done?
Maybe it’s that my mind has been on my mom. But the good news is that she is now back at home (her home), with drains/staples from the surgery removed. And she has not needed a transfusion since the day before the surgery, which was about 6 weeks ago. Which is amazing and fantastic and the best that we could have expected.
Well, for whatever reason, I don’t have any moments captured to post here from the last few days. So I thought I’d post something to let you know I’m still here. And even though I don’t have photos to post, I can post an update of what we’ve been up to.
On Friday, Monte put the sail on, which meant he had to lace the sail onto the new mast hoops (that would have been a great picture). He took Cupholder out for a sail in strong winds and she did great.
On Saturday, we headed out for the June Full Moon Raftup, in Cypress Creek Cove – Cupholder, Marty & Sue on Caribbean Hug, Robert & Robert on Voodoo, Jim & Teri on Island Time, and Kurt, Wally, Kevin on Dancer. We got all settled in by about 7pm or so. But the motor boats and their wakeboarders were buzzing around until after sunset. So it was pretty churned up for a while. We were able to finally cook dinner at about 9 or 10, when the wake died down. We celebrated Teri’s birthday eve with a cake, Buckeye vodka, and iPod wars. (That would have been a great picture) A good time was had by all 🙂
On Sunday, the wakeboarders returned before 7AM, so we decided to head back very early. We had a great sail in strong winds back to the marina, and spent the rest of the afternoon hanging on B-dock and floating. Joe showed up. Wiz was on Allegro. We helped Lori rig her new main sheet block. (That would have been a great picture) Seems like all the other boats made it back from the raftup by 2 or so. Monte and I were very tired when we got back home and didn’t get much of anything done so we gave in to the sleepiness and turned in.
Here’s to Monday and the start of a new week. Let’s see if the funk lifts…
