Alive, Awake

My boss and I were the only people at work today, obviously the only two chumps dumb enough to show up the day after a national holiday.  The fourth of July was quiet around here; we made perfect American burgers.

Things were quiet for fourth of July, meaning a calm before a storm.  I love the way other people’s lives make waves in my life, rippling me to a new mindset, finding a new groove.  My girls get home tomorrow night, and with them will come a whole new energy, new knowledge of a faraway place, new stories, even new friends they made in China!  I’m excited for it – it breaks up the autonomy of that dreaded feeling of “this is it.”  My friends inspire me in ways I never thought possible, and being without three of them for so long takes its toll on me.

Some other images from my life this last week:
