Today is Independence Day, which was a day off work. Yay! I dropped off my rent check and did some shopping this morning. I stopped in at Old Navy to visit Spencer and buy my flag tee, but they were out of just about everything I’ve had my eye on. I did buy a shirt and some hats, though. This afternoon was the annual barbeque at Grant and Hollie’s. Great food and good company. I enjoyed it a lot. Tonight we’re firing off some fireworks that my parents bought on the way back from Yellowstone (shhhh! They’re illegal! They bought them before the border patroling.) And speaking of fire, Jacob had a little incident on the Jordan River Parkway, but we won’t go into that.
Only two more performances of Hello Dolly, then I’m back to having a somewhat normal working mother life. It will be good to have family time, although I’ll miss the fun that has been saturating my life since April.
I put in my request at work to take time off in August to go to Oregon. I don’t have a lot of vacation time, so I won’t get to go for as long as I’d like. So much for the little jaunt to Vancouver BC.
