While there are a million blogs and tweets about summer almost being over and lamenting how quickly it went I remind myself summer isn’t over. Sure we have fall weather, but I LOVE it. I HATE 90 degree weather. That’s why summers in DC almost killed me and why I like the climate here in Wisconsin. September and October are the best months of the year. September can easily be another month of summer.
And I have so much going on in the next few weeks I couldn’t be sad about summer ending even if I wanted to be. I leave on an amazing work trip tomorrow. I get to return to Peru, a country I fell in love with in 2005. It is really a work trip and we will be quite busy for the first two thirds and then we will be going to Machu Picchu.
It will be a totally different experience this time. I won’t have to hike for three days and be exhausted. Instead we are taking the train in. I’m also hoping it will be a clearer day. I hope to do a few posts while I’m on the trip like I did in February, but I have no idea what the internet situation will be when we are up in norther Peru.
Two days after I get back my best friend in the whole world arrives in Wisconsin for Labor Day weekend. I can’t go into details yet, but I’m super excited for her.
Then, three days later the Badgers kick off their season. And if you didn’t know I was excited for that then you probably have never ever read my blog before and certainly don’t follow me on twitter. I got season tickets this year which is awesome. Thanks to a handy thing on UWbadgers.com I was able to find the view from my new seats. It’s not exact, but it’s close. I’m quite happy with the tickets I ended up with. I’m also psyched to see the new team. New coach, new QB (maybe), new #1 Running back.
Tomorrow marks the date Rosie has been with me for one month. I love her so much. She is such a fantastic dog. We have been doing more running and she is genuinely happy when we run. She’s fast, like wants to run faster than I do, but we do well together.
