Where did the summer go?

There is no way I will be able to catch up on everything this summer. There was a lot of things that kept me busy and honestly, I was being very lazy.
I did have a board exam that took up a lot of tme as I was really worried about it. As it turned out ( I passed it by the way), it wasn't as difficult as I was led to believe but it wasn't as wasy as I had hoped. The test is actually in three parts and I have 2 more parts to go but I am not worried about the remaining parts.
It wasn't all studying though. There was time for fun too! My first darts hat trick!

Berda had some minor complication with her Breast cancer reconstruction that required her to return to the hospital for a few days in July. She is much better now!

Celia and Jim introduced me to this place just west of Egypt. It is a good thing that it is not very near or else I'll never lose the tonnage that I've been trying to lose! The thing is last time someone mentioned peaches the first thing that came to mind was not "Hmm peaches... fruit!" no it was more like, "hmm Peach donuts from Donut Man!" Well, we went...

And yes those twists are that big! They're called Tiger tails!

In August my cousin Joel performed with his kids Emma and Justin at Belmont Shores. They are members of the Le Polynesia Dance troupe.

My cousin, Amado called asking me if I wanted to check out his son's band, Silversun Pickups, at the San Diego Street Scene Festival. I was going to say no? Christopher had VIP passes waiting for us at the gate and I have to say, COOL!!

Ok that's definitely all but all for now. There was a time when I was considering ending this, I guess I just needed a break. See you all later!
