Recapping the Week

Not a lot has really happened this week, but the two things I was really going to report on are certainly worthy of excitement.

First and foremost:  Sarah has been approved to go to India next fall!  PLU has a "study abroad" program that allows students to apply for various places on their list, and Sarah chose India.  She just found out a few days ago that she was approved, and she's very excited.  Who wouldn't be?  Traveling to a foreign land is very exciting for anyone.   I don't have a lot of details, but she said it's next January for 6 weeks I believe.  I'm sure if I have it wrong I'll be corrected soon enough.  Sue and I recently got our passports so we can travel, and during our picture sessions we also took a picture for Sarah.  When time permits I'll take Sarah down to apply for hers as well.  Because we already have her picture (the lady commented on how good she looked when I got it approved during my visit there) and birth certificate it should be a no-brainer.  Pretty cool news for her.  She has always totally loved to travel and was not fortunate enough to have parents that could provide that luxury on a regular basis.

Speaking of travel--Sue and I have tickets bought for Kauai this September.  I haven't had a vacation since the two of us rolled the US highways of southern Utah a year ago last November.  I am looking forward to it.  I have been working very hard and I need it badly.  We will be staying at her parents house.  She will stay a little over a week longer than I will, so she'll get a lot of time to help her parents out with house upkeep and stuff like that.  She loves to do that and she's very good at it.  She hasn't been there in several years due to our various reasons (mostly our relationship).  She is used to going there once a year, so I'm sure she has quite a chore list waiting for her by now!  We'll be departing on a Thursday and I'll come back on the second Monday following that.  By the time that date arrives it will be almost 2 years since I had a vacation.

Have you (anyone reading this) ever have one of those Costco rotisserie chickens?  I used to think bacon was the only "meat candy" but I'm afraid that I'm going to have to add those chickens to that list.  Those things are sinfully good!  At only 4.99, the things are the size of a small turkey.

Mmm.  I'm hungry all over again.
