Yeah… yep… that seems right. Yes, it is official; I’m still very much alive. Sorry for not letting you all know, but I was on vacation with my family. My Uncle and Cousins came down to visit from Massachusetts, and I must say, it was one of the best weeks of my life. They arrived last Saturday, so the next day we drove for about an hour until we reached the home they were staying in. On a side note, they got a great deal. They got their own 4 bed / 3 bath home with a fully equipped Lincoln Navigator and access to a luxury hotel at all times, and all for a great price. Now back to the full story. Sunday we went tot heir house and spent most of the day swimming. After about 3 hours at their pool we went to the hotel and went in that pool. Not a very exciting first day, but I enjoyed catching up with family none the less.
So, we took a day off and I spent Monday working on some of my clients. After a long day of work I was extremely relieved when Tuesday rolled around. At about 8 AM they pulled up to our house, Navigator and all, and we took off towards Busch Gardens and Adventure Islands. A few detours later and we ended up at Clearwater Beach. Now, most people call Tuesday the most boring day of the week. Trust me, it wasn’t here. After cruising around for about thirty minutes we signed up for parasailing. Me and my cousin Jared (12) went up together, and my sister went with my cousin Jessica (14). But no, the fun didn’t stop there. I ended up sitting across from a very attractive girl my age on the boat, and ended up with her number by the end of the day.
We finished parasailing at about 2 PM and hopped over to a family owned Italian restaurant where we had a nice lunch. Another little side note. A large group (Read: 20) of local police officers sat down right next to us just as a video was playing of a high speed chase. In the end a cop car went flying through a brick wall at 90 MPH. We had a little discussion and asked them if they were ever on COPS, and then took off for the beach again. Well, I don’t want to bore you all, so I’ll wrap this up quickly. We went Jet Skiing, and then the next day we went to Busch Gardens. We then went out for a family dinner, then they went out to the swamps Thursday to see some alligators. They left for Mass earlier today (Friday).
Now on to some other news. I’ll be redesigning my company website soon, and also have a redesign planned for my forums. I am in the process of wrapping up a few clients, and received an interesting, blog-related offer yesterday. I’ll let you in on that in the near future. That’s all for now, look forward to some design changes soon, and a brand new, in-depth article to go with it.
