Camping trips and reunions

So I figured an update was long overdue...not that there's a whole lot new and exciting to report. The baby continues to grow and take up my precious lung and stomach space. I've been hit with a not-so-wonderful summer cold that started in my face and moved into the remainder of my lung space, so you can imagine what kind of fun it is for me to breathe right now. Work is a drag as always, particularly now as people are going on vacation and we don't have casual coverage so I end up doing the job of two or more people quite frequently. I console myself with thoughts of the end being near - only five more weeks of work, seven more weeks till Baby (or so, depending on when it decides to show up).

We have big plans to go camping this weekend with my family, combined with a sort of reunion as we greet my long-lost sister who's been at school in Iowa since Christmas and decided to stay there to work for the summer and also decided to take five weeks to go to Chicoutimi, Quebec for a French immersion program...suffices to say we haven't seen her in quite a while and it will be good to spend some quality time together as a family.

anyway, that's about all there is to say, and my supper's getting cold, so I'll sign off for now...
