The end of July and beginning of August is always hectic. Really hectic. Phone calls go unanswered, emails wait for a reply, the house is normally in a constant state of disarray and my family begins to worry if I'm still alive. It happens every year as we launch into trade show madness but somehow always manages to surprise me. So essentially this post is for my family to let them know that yes, I'm alive and yes I'll call soon to catch up and confirm our flights home (3 weeks and counting!).
