Cook more. Eat out less.
Write birthday cards. And mail them.
Not study too hard.
I know we (/Kevin) have written a lot of reflective posts, but this isn’t going to be one of them. It was going to be one of them, but I’m a bazillion days behind on writing the blog and I’m on a tight deadline. I have to finish this post before I go to sleep so we can post it in the morning before (SPOILER ALERT!) we go to the jungle and have no internet for six days, but Kevin turned on the movie Hitch, which of course distracted me from the writing I was supposed to be doing and now it’s midnight and I’m really tired and I want to go to sleep.
So back to the reality of the post. It’s May 19th. We’re still recovering from the Inca Trail. We will take an overnight bus to Ica, which will show the movie Up. The ride itself will go smoothly – nothing worth noting will occur – which is definitely worth noting. None of us will win bus Bingo (sigh).
I have to apologize, because since Dad Curry and Steve have been here, we’ve been pretty lax about spending time writing. The Inca Trail was the first time on the entire trip that we didn’t take the laptop with us (and I’m guessing it shows on the blog). I don’t know if you can tell, but we usually do make an effort when we write these things. No really, we do! Anyway. Unfortunately, we haven’t been doing our best writing these past few days, and I’m not predicting that our (Kevin’s and mine) writing will get any better until Amy comes and leaves. But, luckily for you, there are several guest posts to come, and of much better quality than the one I’m writing right now.
In conclusion (I am violating one of the basic tenets of essay writing that I learned in seventh grade – NEVER write “in conclusion”), I have just written a post about 1) nothing and 2) how the posts will be better soon because other than myself will be writing them, and you’re still here. Thank you. You must really love us.
