I haven't been good about updating my journal, so I'm going to try monthly updates. Full disclosure: this might be the only month I remember to do it. LOL!

July has been a busy month, writing aside. We had our vacation to Pennsylvania, which included Gettysburg, Hershey and Scranton. We watched a Civil War battle reenactment, went on a ghost tour, and toured a coal mine. It was a really fun trip. My son and my nephew are already planning our next excursion. My son wants to go to Salem, Mass and my nephew wants to go to Germany. One is slightly more doable than the other. LOL!

Here's me and my boy at the reenactment. It was ungodly hot, moreso for the reenactors. We only stayed three hours because we just couldn't stay out in the sun one more minute. (Look how enormous my boy is, for reals.)

My boy did a week-long Career Camp at the tech school where I work. He did half day Visual Arts & Communications and half day Pre-Engineering. He really liked the first class, which I've always thought would be a good fit for him when he's old enough to enroll in it. They did silk-screening on t-shirts, made songs on the computer, and worked in Photoshop. Every day he came to show me what he'd done.

It was also my boy's birthday this month. He turned 14. We had a party the Saturday before, with family, and then on the actual day I took off from work and we spent the day together. Went out for brunch, had birthday cheesecake, and picked up new videogames and movies. It was a really nice day.

Writing has been coming along pretty well, even though my July output hasn't been much. But I'm hard at work on my Harlequin BB fic for the [ profile] story_works challenge. And still trying to finish up my apoca-fic for this month's challenge at [ profile] whatif_au before next month's challenge goes up tomorrow. I've also been inspired by prompts at [ profile] comment_fic and [ profile] mcsheplets. I need all the inspiration and motivation I can get, for reals!

My boy is ridiculously big. He's almost tall enough to put his chin on my head. Not looking forward to that, I must say. LOL!
