Colorado Trip

We had a great time in Colorado for the most part.  I ended up with pink eye in my right eye, which appears to have been either viral or allergies because the antibiotic eye drops were no help.  My eye is all back to normal now, but I have to go in Monday for an eye exam to get new contacts. 

The Water Monitoring Conference was really great.  My talk went well and I got a lot of good feedback about it.  EPA has asked me to give another talk during a webcast on the 20th.  One of my college professors won the major award that is given during the conference, so it was nice to be there to see him being recognized.  I also saw the women who tested me to certify me in the Colorado River Watch Program when I was back in high school.  Who knew back then that I would end up making water monitoring my career, at least for now.

I really enjoyed spending the time with my Mom and I think she really enjoyed spending so much time with Austin.  It's really hard to live so far away, but I really value the time we do spend together.  We also got to spend a lot of time with my sister Cathy during the drive to Colorado and she took Austin to Chuckie Cheese for the first time.  He was a little overwhelmed because he did not take an afternoon nap that day, but he had fun anyway.

  1. Looks like Austin had a great time. Sorry about the pink-eye but hopefully it is all better now.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
