I wonder if anyone else hates that day as much as I do. I don't mind the cutting but I just hate having one more thing to do. Going to The Man Shop.
Then to CostCo (across the street from them) for charcoal and home to work on the Summer Class. I want to have the first two weeks of lectures completely ready to go by the end of today. Monday it starts up - 5PM! I also have a Thesis

Got the BlackBoard
Ahhh. First official day of vacation. Had ot get up at 4 to take Lisa to the airport, then wait around for the furnace guy to check the system for Summer. He decided we need a new thermostat.
