Speaking of dogs, I sadly do not have dog still. I had an application in for a dog that sounded like a great fit, but I think the foster-mom wanted to keep the dog and the rescue took forever to tell me anything and was not very helpful. I've just given up on that one. I've started looking at other dogs, or might just bring a puppy back from Pittsburgh with me at the beginning of September. For anyone who hasn't heard, I will be taking a trip back to Pittsburgh/Ohio at the end of August. Can't wait to see everybody!
Other than that, I've been doing some trail running (well, not so much the last 2 weeks since my leg was healing). There are some decent trails right behind my apartment. It's so flat here on the high plains you can see the weather coming from a long way off, and the very abrupt difference between raining and not raining....check out the picture below. I've been hanging out more with my friend Mandy from work. She's just great. She has 2 dogs that come to work with her most days, so we bonded over dogs and a mutual love for Diet Dr. Pepper. Work has been good, and busy. I finally made it over to the corporate headquarters in Cheyenne this month. And I've got some exciting new projects. The next few weeks will be extra busy to get everything done or to a reasonable state before my trip east. Clistie is finally back in Laramie after her month-long family trip to many of the west's national parks. Her parents stayed with us for a few days when they dropped her off in town.
I'll work on taking some more pictures....especially nature ones per request....but here's a few til then:
