Survived the Wilds of Vermont

I have made it back safe and sound from my trip up to Vermont for my family reunion. Believe it or not, I had a really great time. We were in a ski lodge with five bedrooms and four full baths. There were 11 of us total, so I had to share a room with my brother, but that was fine - the room had bunk beds and a queen - I made him take the bunk bed.

I was able to do a lot of reading. I'm on chapter sixteen of the fifth Harry Potter book. We watched the Olympics every night (and sometimes during the day too). There was a pond not far away that we visited for one morning, and we went shopping in the "nearby" towns (I even found three new tops at one of the outlets). And believe it or not, I was able to spend a little time writing one afternoon. This means that the last chapter of Tumblin' Down is half-way finished. (No, I didn't get to start either of my W/S stories.)

My brother came back to Boston with me and is going to stay at my apartment until my mom comes back down on Wednesday, then he'll fly home with her. This also means that I probably still won't be online much for the next few days, as work will be hellish now that one of my co-workers quit and Friday was her last day - meaning we have to take over her accounts until someone new is hired.
