Just get back from a yearbook conference at a lovely resort (Kingston Plantation) in Myrtle Beach. You know, any conference that's held at a beach resort is worth begging your boss to attend. Especially when there's built-in "beach time". Yes, please.
You may remember that I'm starting a new job at a brand-new school next year (Go Redhawks!) and that job includes advising (and organizing and creating and all that jazz) for our yearbook. It's been a looooong while since I worked on a "real" yearbook (the middle school yearbook that I ran really was just a photo album...very few captions and no copy) so I really needed a refresher course. My brain, she is full of knowledge now. So. Much. To. Do. But a very productive conference.
Plus, I did get in a little beach time. And pool time. And porch/reading time. I finally read OUTLANDER by Diana Gabaldon after so many people telling me how awesome it is. I really enjoyed it--though (and don't crucify me) I don't think I'll be joining the super-fan ranks.
I also read PUSHING THE LIMITS by Katie McGarry--a young adult romance that comes out in August. YOU MUST READ THIS!! It's absolutely fantastic.
Now that I'm back, the heat has HIT! It's 108 degrees in Columbia--that's hotter than hot tubs are allowed to be (The sign by the hot tub I was in yesterday said 104 is the hottest a public tub is supposed to be). Can anyone say sauna? Stay frosty, my friends (heh).
