Hi Everyone

I'm back after a break from writing. I see it's been 2 months since I last wrote -- time flies! I hope you are having a great summer! Here's an update on my summer:

In early July, we went on a longer 11-night vacation to Hawaii as a reward/celebration for surviving my surgery (including the family since that was a lot of stress for them too). There was also a specific goal I had in mind for this trip that was very meaningful to me. It turned out that Hawaii was really hot and we had no air conditioning, so this was both amazing and also one of the more grueling vacations I've had. I'll write about all of this in my next blog.

After that, I was home for a few weeks (partly recovering from vacation) before heading out on my first business trip since the surgery. This turned into an 8-day/7-night trip to 3 cities. This trip combined both work and fun since we work with many great people both on our team and with partners. There were at least 10 people I met in person for the first time after talking to them many times on the phone or video chat. I'll share more about this trip in the blog after the vacation highlights.

Finally, our kids are already back to school starting last week. My boys started 10th grade and 7th grade. The oldest just turned 16, so that will start another fun and hopefully not too challenging stage with him :).

it was a great summer with many family and work highlights.

My health continues to go really well. I'd say I'm about 90% recovered from surgery. I can still tell I have a few limitations when it comes to physical stamina, but not much. Fortunately, my brain is still very happy and coming up with lots of interesting ideas to work on :).

How have you been this summer (or other season if you are in a different part of the world)?

SparkCheers!

Chris
