Getting Ready to Move On

I can't believe that we have been in Houston for seven weeks but then I look at what we have accomplished and we have been busy. Lots of medical tests, lots of doctor visits, two eye surgeries (one for Ned and one for me), boy sitting with Jack and Will, seeing Dexter and Maxwell and getting to hear Maxwell's rock band, some shopping, and dinners with friends.

In addition I've completed the move to Adobe Lightroom, transferred 550 GB's of photo files to three external hard drives so now I have a working, a backup and an archive of the 550 GB's. This means that I can take all of my photo files with me on one external HD between SMA and Houston. None of this is quite as simple as it "reads." There were bumps along the way but I'm glad the job is done.

And the other big accomplishment while we were in Texas was spending some time in Port Aransas and figuring out that my idea for a project tying the Mercer Logs in with my photographs could work. It will just take time and a lot of work and a bit of help from some people in Port Aransas. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am about the project.

Now it is time to get the apartment straightened, stuff that is going to San Miguel organized. Before long we will be back to living on Mexican Time.

Take your time Billie. The weather here in the Bajío lately has been hotter than Houston...meaning that it is hotter than Hell :)

I'm expecting it to be hot and with no AC at the house. Yuck! I'm hoping the rains start on time in three or four weeks from now.

Sounds like you've had a busy time. Good luck on your trip back. I hope your AC is working.

Good grief, after reading all that you've done, I feel like a SLUG! I need to light a fire under my butt to accomplish something. Can I blame it on the weather - NOT!
It really isn't that bad here - only for about two hours - from 6-8PM - other then that, its fine with the ceiling fans on..........
Travel safe - I'll be thinking about you!
