Not much news since we bought our flight tickets. (Which is still big news!!!) The reason for the lag: We are friggin’ busy!
Zach works 50 hour weeks AND every other weekend as an electrician.
Mel has a relatively new job, is moving, and training for a triathalon.
I just got a new job but still have two weeks left at my old one. So between the two I’m working 60 hour weeks and at least 20 straight days without a day off.
AHHH!!! We are TIRED and frustrated that we don’t have more time to work on things like the trailer, social media, and fundraising. But the $$ we are making now is enabling us to take off on this year of awesomeness. I know I will handle tiredness so much better when I’m tired from doing something awesome, like hiking Machu Picchu.
Eyes on the prize…Also I know I will be able to work more on LAP once I’m back to only one job and only 40 hours a week. I just can’t wait to get there!
I’m going to sit down (again) this evening and take another stab at creating some animations in Flash for our awesome Pitch/Trailer that Carrie is putting together. I learned Flash Animation in one of the classes I took in college (sophomore year, which is now…4 YEARS AGO!! Whaat!) I’m starting with some tutorials on youtube and going from there. Hopefully with a little more time and effort it will come back to me. It seems crazy to me that it is proving to be difficult – now I know how my parents feel when they sit down at the computer! 😉
