Some updates  
My dad's side of the family is visiting from out of state. They usually only come up about once a year - if that - so all week, on my days off, I've been staying out until 11pm to visit with family. The lack of downtime and naps has me feeling tired constantly, so I haven't been doing much fandom stuff lately other than reading. I haven't written anything, or beta'd anything, because I just cannot brain when I get home lol. But everyone is leaving Saturday/Sunday, so after that things will be settling into their normal routine. I took yesterday - Thursday - off because my one uncle was only going to be here Thursday and Friday, and I work both those days. It's going to make money ridiculously tight at the end of the month, but it was worth it. I haven't seen him in three years.

Other than reading, I've been listening to podcasts. I just finished Limetown and LOVED it. Fascinating and at times creepy, it pulled me in until all I could think about was listening to the next episode. I have a huge list of podcasts I want to listen to, some of them quite long, so I have plenty to choose from. I think if I ever do get caught up on my podcasts, I'm going to listen to more podfics. My life could always use more John & Rodney~

My birthday is coming up - the 23rd. I'm going to be 28. It's super weird to think that I'm approaching 30 - I still feel like I'm 23, and I have to actually do the math in my head before I'm like, "Oh yeah." Where the hell is this year going?

I'm so glad you've been having some fun and visiting with your family! You need more happy times. ::hugs::

28? So young! LOL! But I agree - where the hell has this year gone? July already and that's insane. When I was a kid summer lasted forever. Now it's gone in the blink of an eye.

I do! I just worry that having happy times NOW means stress later (aka taking that day off from work is going to bite me in the ass, I know it).

LOL Yes, 28. Summer really did last forever when you're a kid - and so did the years. I remember it being a big deal to me when I was young that the year was changing over. Now I'm like "Where did the first half of this year go?" Geez.

Too bad you couldn't have switched your work days with someone who had those days off hon. As always real life comes before fandom and family comes first unless you don't get along with them. Fandom will be there when you can get back to it. Not to say that we don't miss you because we do.

Time seems to be moving a lot more quickly these days. Before you know it Christmas will be here again and we will be celebrating a new year. It sucks but it is what it is...

I hope you have a wonderful birthday hon.

I wish I could have! But the only two people I could have switched with didn't work when I did in the days preceding Thursday, and I don't have their number.

God, right? We're already over halfway through the year. I'm eager for summer to end, but I don't want it to be the holiday season yet, either!

Yeah, too fast for me too.
