Now what??

A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in. ~Robert Orben

So all of a sudden, I have a LOT of time on my hands! Yay!! After my last day of work last Monday, I went down to Lake Martin with two of the girls that I (used to) work with, Chrissie and Mary Halsey. We spent two nights at Chrissie's family's lake house, and just lazed around laying the the sun, riding on the pontoon boat, eating girlie food, and enjoying each others' company. It was great!

After the lake, I made my way to the beach, not passing go or collecting $200! Thanks for the ride, Will and Ashley! Ron had been "down South" all week seeing customers, so he met me there. We had a blast! We kept to our usual "schedule"... pool time, lunch time, shopping time (yeah, outlets!), dinner time, party time, rinse and repeat.... This time was a little different cause it was the 4th, so we spent most of that day at the pool with LOTS of crazy folks! It was the most crowded pool I've ever been in, but it was fun! We got just enough of a suntan, then cleaned up and went to Baytowne Wharf to people watch and see the fireworks. Good times for the Williams'!

Now we're home, and although I don't truly go to work for two more months, I am putting myself to work studying for my board exam. The test is in October, and is notoriously evil! My goal is to be completely finished studying before going to China, then I can just review a few more times before the test. We'll see... I plan to spend at least 3-4 hours a day studying. I've done it this morning...yay for me!

That's about it for me for now... still no bites on the house, unfortunately. I think we'll be renting for a while in Auburn. Yuck! Continue keeping your fingers crossed please!
