It's been 2 months since I was admitted in hospital and SHOCKED by how quick the time has flown by.

Travelling to MANY places has been our must for the 4 weeks of annual vacation I'm given. I used my last bit of vacation the past couple weeks and headed over for a (very short) trip to Bolivia and Peru.

After reading through some previous posts, I realized I haven't written a 'rambles and rants' in a while! I've been trying to juggle a few too many things at once (saying no can be hard..) and made some exciting decisions on a new (short term) job change! Baking away my days off.
