My in-laws internet is worse than my parents! I'm here (Virginia) until Sunday and then back to Michigan until the beginning of February and then Chopper and I will finally be back together again!!! WA-HOO!!!! We actually are in the process of getting an apartment and getting our furniture from Montana and I can't tell you how much better it makes me feel just to know that we are going somewhere!
Christmas was fabulous and made more entertaining because of Megan's reactions to everything. I won't be able to post pictures until I get back to Michigan but it was wonderful.
Chopper is literally working everyday up to the inauguration and then it looks like we'll be scheduling him for shoulder surgury to just take care of whatever the issue is!
I've been reading a good series by Rick Riordan (for middle-school, young teen age group) called Percy Jackson and the Olympians. It's about a young man who discovers that he is a hero (half god, half mortal) in present day and that the gods have not disappeared. Great for mythology because it puts it all in a modern context! And it's a fun read.
