How I Spent My Summer Vacation 

Classes start tomorrow. Back in April I set out a number of goals for the summer. Didn't really complete many of them.

-I did make it to the gym. A few times. And I walked a lot. Didn't really have an impact on the BMI or the couture, however.
-The kayak still languishes beneath the basement stairs.
-Sky Captain isn't opening until September 17. Which is a Friday, so I might hit the opening day.
-The guitars and piano sit untouched.
-I did read many books, mostly fluff. It took me a while to get off the legal stuff, but I managed eventually.
-Went to the beach or state park a couple of times.
-My Italian skills remain the same. Avete una tavola per due, per favore? Ah, grazie!
-Left off the original list inadvertently was catching up on movies. Clearly this was largely accomplished.
-Added to the working list was to view the first three seasons of Queer As Folk on DVD. Mission accomplished! Finished them off last week.
-Also added late in the summer was to get the apartment squared away and organized. Finished that up (mostly - don't ask about the laundry room/storage area of the basement. But the music room area looks fabulous!).

But most importantly, The Girl and I spent a lot of time enjoying each other's company, something that will be in short supply soon enough. So all in all, that means that the really important stuff was tended to. The rest is just icing.
