Unpublished Blog

I don't always have internet access so as I post blogs sometime they will be written on a different day than posted.

Beware the green-eyed monster, or the Raccoon out by the back door. I was finishing my first day on my EFY job as a Health Counselor and as I walked back to my room I saw this Raccoon on the lawn. I ran to get my camera to take a picture and this is what I got. I should have changed some settings but I was too worried about it running away. My first day was good. I sat in on the counselor training; it was good just not oriented to my job so I didn’t really take in everything. Everything is well in Santa Barbara, the weather included.

California Fun is Done...

... for now! Yep, I am home for a week. I spent the last week in Northern California and next week I leave for Southern California for EFY. It will be great. I really enjoyed my time back in Modesto. It was great to see family and visit some friends. The Monday before last, Kevin and I arrived in Ripon and we participated in a big family barbecue. Uncle Glen's pool is amazing after a 12 hour drive. Tuesday I visited the Lewis and Smeltzer fams and did a bunch of going about the town. Other added benefits of Modesto were lab coats for a dollar a piece and eight dollars for a box of medical tape, yes! Thursday, we made our way up to the Russian River for a Family Reunion. It was great, filled with freezing cold oceans and wonderful rivers to play in. It was fun to be with the family. Inspired by grandpa's words of wisdom this year I am going to improve my food storage. Sunday we came home, 12 more hours in Kevin's car. Oh by the way I can drive stick now, I need like a bit more practice but I don't think I'm that bad. Anyway the trip was great. Now I need to prepare for the next one.
