|I love my central air conditioning!

What a summer we are having. The Texas heat is in full strength with no break in sight. Lake Travis is getting lower and lower each week because we haven't had rain in a long time. We did have some rain for the 4th of July but it wasn't enough to make a difference. The drought conditions are getting worse and islands are popping up all over the lake. I need to learn how to do a rain dance so the lake can get the water it needs and it may cool things off at the same time :) We try to go out on the boat every weekend and take the jet skis out during the week when all the crazies are off the lake.
My son has informed me that he will be heading to Iraq in November for 14 months with approximately 25,000 other soldiers from Fort Hood. We both knew this was a possibility but it scares the hell out of me now that it is a reality. I am very proud of my son and all military for doing the thankless job they do. I am starting a stockpile of supplies that I can send over to my son and his co-workers so they can have some of life’s little pleasures and maybe take their minds off the war around them for a moment. He will be missing 2 birthdays, 2 Thanksgivings and 2 Christmas’s while over there. I am very big on celebrating holidays of all types but only mentioned the major ones. He will leave at age 18 and return at age 20. Ok, I will stop now, I know I am being such a mom and thinking about the little things.
Work has been great and I am still with Turbine and a few other non-gaming companies. Many of you have emailed me about trying the SWG Emulator. I gave it a lot of thought and as much as I would love to, I simply can’t and thank you all for your offers. The SWG chapter is closed in my book and I don’t go backwards in life. I still game when I get a chance, my jobs and children keep me busy.
The next few weeks will be very busy for me. My daughter will be starting school on the 16th YAYYYYYYYY!! Errr, I will miss her being home all day with me *waves to Tigglet* I will also be turning the big 40 at the end of the month. I hear life begins at 40 so I will let you know if what they say is true. We are also trying to squeeze in a visit to New Joisey so I can refresh my accent and attitude, oh and to visit my family.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and staying cool!
