 Here's the final installment of the story. Sorry it took so long, I've had a lot of things going on (including another weekend babysitting my little great-niece, Elle!). ;)

Epilogue )

Wow, it has been a while since I was on here... I just thought I'd just say a brief "hi" to my Internet Life again. :) 

Vacation was really a lot of fun--more fun than I thought it was going to be. I love vacations, of course, but there were two reasons I was kind of dreading going to Arizona. First of all, I usually have a ton of trouble sitting still in the car for so many hours. Its not that I get restless so much (although that happens sometimes too, when I've had too much coffee), but my back problems always seem ten times amplified when all I can do is SIT. :P Although I wasn't miraculously cured or anything, and my back and neck still hurt, I really felt blessed by God, and more relaxed than I usually am. I even slept well in several very noisy hotels. :)

Another reason I (and I think everyone else, too) was kind of dreading going, was that this was the first time we had been down there since Grandpa died (the reason we go to AZ anually is to visit him). My Grandma died when I was quite young, and Grandpa re-married ten years ago--so our step-Grandma feels every bit like family. Still, I think we were all kind of nervous it was just going to be...akward. But it was terrific. We really got to have some wonderful quality time with Grandma, especially us girls (Emily, me, Mom, and Grandma), while the guys did some handy-man repairs around the house. 

So, yes, it was fun. :D The most annoying thing was that I got a cold in the middle of it, and have since picked up yet another cold...which would be part of the reason for my absense on here. I try to keep that charming head-cold-activiated side of my personally to myself. *g*

Oh! But I have some exciting news I just have to share. I'm finally getting the tree-fort of my dreams! *clears throat* Erm, we're actually calling it a tree-studio. ;) So what if we're 18 and 20? Emily and I have ALWAYS wanted some kind of tree-house, so when the boys offered to build us one we jumped on the idea. So now we're going to have our very own elvish "flet" built in the nearest Mallorn tree (heh, I wish). We found the loveliest location: a gigantic oak tree overlooking a little valley with a stream, located not far from our house. It's going to be SO conducive to writing. *bg* Knowing the boys and their perfectinism, it's going to be really nice, too. I'm so excited! :) 

Well, I'm off to read about the Aztec and Mayan civilizations, work on my next HTML lesson, and hopefully find some time to write (I am on such a spree right now, I can hardly put my "pen" away at night).
