I had my birthday this week, and it was awesome. Phil and I just hung around and were boring as usual, but we ate a wonderful homecooked meal and played cards too! I'm finally finished with the Russian olive project we've been working on in the office all week at Southwest Youth Corps. On Monday, I'll take off early for a place called Mueller State Park. I'll be gone fort 10 days, and that brings us right up to Thanksgiving! It's been nice living at home for these past few weeks of work. The word is that this upcoming job will be our hardest one so far and there will probably be snow on the ground. More when i get home!
