Hello there.

Oh my. I arrived back home from Seattle on this past Monday. I had grand illusions of editing and posting my photos right away. But then I went to work. And it was a disaster. Quite literally. My manager had planned to cover my vacation, but then she was called away out of town on other business. The department had coverage for two half days, then four days of nothing, so I came in to a pretty big mess. Sweeet. Just what everyone wants to come back to after a vacation. Icky. Needless to say, I have been busting my ass to try and catch up, on top of normal duties, and after work, I am all tuckered out. Even though I have wanted to stop in and post, it has been hard to do anything but put my feet up after a long day!
So I have so much to share with you about my fabulous time visiting my best friend in Seattle, but, I am going to save that post for the weekend, when I have more time. Today I'd like to share this week's project Monday. Which was actually for Tuesday, June 21, the first day of summer. The summer solstice. The longest day of the year. If I hadn't been so freakin' tired after that first day back at work, I would have crammed in a lot more. The project was to document how much you did on the longest day of the year.
woke up at 3am, at work by 4. yippee. what a mess.
leave on my lunch break at 8:20ish to pick up Celeste and take her to Boys & Girls Club.
Find out they don't have her in the system, wait to talk to lady.
Back at work 9:20ish. Yay, now I get to stay even later!
1:20ish off work. Pick up a few groceries, home by 2:30
Head back out to another grocery store

Head home and put away the rest of the groceries.

Isn't it crazy how little things can just suck a day away? How about you, how did you rock the longest day of the year?
