thanks mom

July began with a spark that quickly became a flame and caught the side of a hill on fire. Let’s just say, it’s been an adventure.
I celebrated the fourth with a game of tennis under a sky filled with fireworks. That was both unusual and fantastic. Of course we had to get a slice of apple pie after our mini midnight Wimbledon. I had a cup of coffee with my pie and was up all night. The following morning, I packed my bags, caught a cab, and hopped on an airplane headed to nowhere. Then I spent the weekend on the houseboat. I got to see another fireworks show, which was great until they caught the hillside on fire. Then I was serenaded by some drunken boys on the boat next door (my mom decided it was a good idea to tell them I was single while they drunkenly forgot the words to some random Tom Petty song)… thanks mom…
This last weekend I was very ambitious. I got up at 5am and ran a 10k, then I got in my car and drove 3 hours into the woods to go camping. Needless to say, I was a bit frustrated when it took me 2 1/2 hours to find my friend’s campsite. GRR!
Anyways, it was fun. I got to swim and got a killer tan!
