Vacation, Vocation, & the Very Long Renovation

Vacation, Vocation, and the Very Long Renovation.  That has been what has been keeping us busy these days.

First up, and most fun, Vacation!  We just returned from a week cruising around Alaska - all thanks to cruise director Nana.  It was her birthday, and we all got to take an amazing trip.  We can't thank you enough, Mom!!!  We watched whales feed and glaciers calve.  We spied bald eagles fishing, but didn't have any luck catching any salmon ourselves.  We learned about sled dogs, lumberjacks, and Totem Poles.  As if Alaska wasn't enough, we even got to hanging out in Seattle, WA and Victoria, BC.

Next up, and more work, Vocation!  Vacation can't last forever, so it is back to the working world.  It is official, Scott has worked for Cisco for a very long time - 15 years to be exact.  Cisco has given Scott a great ride, and with three kids Scott's ride won't be ending soon.  Scott isn't the only one with a vocation.  After my one year turned to three year break, I start working next week in the "nurse's office" at a neighborhood school.  It sure will be different than working in the ICU.  The kids are thrilled that while I will enjoy the same vacation days as them, I won't be working in the same school as them - win-win.

Finally, the Very Long Renovation!  Our landscape project is moving forward, but not done yet.  At this point, it has taken longer to plant the plants than it did to construct the house.  The project has taught me some about plants and much about patience.  Some day it will be complete.

That is life in MomZania.
