It is so good to be home! I realized I was being a huge flake this summer and decided to stop kidding myself with the blog and just take a break. It was beginning to feel like a chore and I didn't have much to write about. That's all in the past baby and I'm back for the year!
What a summer what a summer... I was an RA in my non-air conditioned dorm (but hey, free living!) It wasn't that bad, but I was pretty much just working in my lab all day and sitting and sweating all night.

Then I was actually out of the country for a while! It's really exciting for me because when I was a kid we didn't have much spare cash to take 3 kids on vacation and board a dog for a week. To celebrate our last free summer, Doug and I decided to go to the United Kingdom for 2 weeks. It was quite the whirlwind. As you can imagine though, not too much time with access to the internet for blogging.

I swear though, if I ever see a meat pie and potatoes again it'll be too soon. We ate in pubs every night for 2 straight weeks. I'll tell you more about that tomorrow though. I really want to do justice to my trip in a longer post.
So yeah, for those of you still hanging around my site, thanks for the patience! I'm back for the foreseeable future, so get ready!
