Here’s the Salt Lake temple. Picture taken from . . . umm . . . I’m not quite sure. I took it, though. I’m sure about that.

We’re back! Had a great time at Young Women camp. The girls enjoyed it and so did we adults. I’m exhausted still, and I have about a zillion mosquito bites on my arms, but I can’t otherwise complain. The weather was beautiful and the company was good too.

I had the trailer parked near the exit from the camp in a beautiful, private little clearing. I put the awning up, the carpet out, and a couple of comfy chairs and my hammock in front. Looked particularly inviting. Stupidly, I took absolutely no photos. I also spent essentially no non-sleep time there. Too busy fixing toilets and taking out trash. But it was a great week.

I’m back to work, and things are as usual. There are a ton of things to get done by Wednesday, every one of which is more urgent than all the others. I’ll get it all done somehow. Or not.

And then we’re off to Alaska on Thursday. (Link update: The mystery’s solved!) Really looking forward to it. There are lots of preparations to be made – LRN4 bought the food for LRN1 and LRN2 and is working on our mountain of clothes to wash. She and I both need haircuts. I have to go to Massive Meeting Tuesday. We both need to make lists and pack (the latter of which will probably happen on Thursday morning before our departure). Probably need to gas up a couple of cars. The list goes on and on.

And then we relax.

LRN1 and LRN2 will be climbing Half Dome and doing some boating with the Scouts this weekend, which should be a pleasant diversion for both of them.

Not many comments on my Very Special Vacation Comment Thread. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make at least occasional posts from Alaska. Or the Morrowlife blog may collapse completely. What happened, Loyal Readers?

I wrote a whole bunch more on my iPhone, but it disappeared, so I’m not going to try to recreate any more. Instead, I’ll leave you with today’s toilet news: The Russian space toilet is on the fritz again.

Important update: It’s fixed! For now.
