HEY! been a while, I know. I had a couple weeks off and took a trip and relaxed. snapped some pictures too but I haven´t gotten to them yet. after vacation Janire got on a plane to Denver to do some news stuff on the DNC, she gets back on Sunday! anyway, our trip was to the north, we went to Plentzia to see her mom and we took a trip from there to the south of France by car. it was on the coast and touristy but nice. big surfing area. in one place we were looking down over the beach and it just kept going til you couldn´t see farther. you´ll see. other from going from small beaches to big beaches, spanish to french, I guess that the only other big difference was there we a lot more blondes... :) no really, the trip was great! Janire has the camera now. I´m sure that she´ll be coming back with some interesting photos of her own...

I´ve been back to work for a week and it brought me a quick reminder on the first day back that I need to get myself a new J O B. the place is a mess. I need to get my resume out to more places. I guess the bright side is that I only have to stick it out for another week and I get another 2 weeks of vacation! a week of job searching and a week with the visitors! I can´t wait!

I don´t really think that there is much more to report. things are good. my back seems to be progressing finally. the days are hot and the nights are cool.

time to go for a coffee...

be well,

Matthew
