Summer Hiatus

I am so out of touch with current events in the region, or in the world, and enjoying it so far! Just a quick update on our lives here. Let's see, it's hot but air conditioning works just fine, all over our home and in the car too, so it's tolerable. I am taking time off the swimming pool due to an ear infection and a slight cold too. I skipped my exercise twice this week because of that, but overall I think I did pretty well, considering I am not too well.

Oh, it's my birthday today! I guess that's newsworthy enough :D We're not doing anything special for it though. We had a great time today, visiting the local Hari Krishna folks in their kindergarten. They had an open day and invited us over. We spent a while doing crafts and Ron and me made this cute miniature raft with a little man made of clay sitting there and sailing away. Everyone was really impressed with it, until they found out it was done by a 35 years old and not a 5 years old :D

By the way, I am only 35 in earth years. I have decided to switch to Martian years from now on. A year on Mars has 686 days in it. Which I think makes me about 17 years old. Being a Martian has the added benefit of reducing my weight to a third of what it is here on earth. In other words, I am really an anorexic. I just have issues with the local G force on this blue planet here ;)

Gotta run now, time to feed the little earthlings here!
