Chuggin' Along

I don't really have anything exciting to write about, but I realize it's been about 10 days (or 12 posts on Brecken's blog) since I've last written, and I felt bad for neglecting you all, so I thought I'd better write.

We've got an American visitor staying with us at the moment - he's a 17 year old Idaho boy who's dad was mission companions with my Dad in Auckland NZ many moons ago :) My parents stayed with his family last year when they were overseas, and when he met them, young Jason started saving up to come and visit Australia. He arrived almost 2 weeks ago now, and will be here for a month. His first week was spent checking out Brisbane. This week, Mum, Dad, Abby, James and Jason are down in Victoria visiting the great ocean road (along Australian's southern cost). It's supposed to be gorgeous and I was jealous, but I had too much going on at work to take the time out. They'll get back on Monday, after a week, and they'll be here for a day before Mum, Dad, Jason, Ben and Oliver head up to North QLD to spend 6 days in Cairns where they'll go snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef and white water rafting among their other adventures. Jason's having a fabulous holiday!

Why do I bring this up? Oh, I don't know. I guess it's just to point out how well we Munro's look after any Americans who decide to come and visit us.... :)

Nothing much is new in my world - work work work. I've been shooting locally for the last three days - so it's been nice to be shooting during the day and sleeping in my own bed at night. Now I've got a few days in the office, and then next week I'll be back up to Mt. Isa for a few days. This time the job will be to shoot down in the underground mines - that should be interesting. I don't think I'm particularly claustrophobic, but I guess I'll find out ;)

Hope everything's well with all of you!

uhmm, just American friends is it? Does that mean your english friend isn't included... or does that mean I'll be even better treatment because I'm your only british friend and being from England deserves the royal treatment ;)
I still plan on coming to see you sometime within the year! It might be when I graduate. But then I can spend more time with you, mind you don't know if you can get that much time off as you are a very busy person.

12 posts? One of those was Justin's so I guess I'm not as addicted as 12 posts makes me look.

Some day we hope to be American Guests.

Jenny - of COURSE you'd get the royal treatment... I didn't mention you because the brittish are in a league of their own of COURSE :) Can't wait till you visit!

Brecken - I meant 12 posts in an 'I'm so in awe of you' way :) The word addictive does usually carry negative conotations I suppose (drugs, alchohol, chocolate) but it can also be an admirable thing (I'm so addicted to reading my scriptures!) etc...
:) I love your blog posts :)

I would love to come stay with you. Maybe after I graduate next May. I'll have the summer off before I start teaching :) I definitely would rather be exploring Australia right now than sitting in class for six straight hours. Uggh. And to think I actually wanted to go back to school

Tammy Lorna said...

Yeah! Come Jess - we'll explore :) how much fun would that be?!

This post just makes me realize how much I need to make it to Australia so I can hang out and do fun stuff with your family! :)

P.S. Need a new post, girly!
