Turn the Lights Off

It's nearly 12 in the afternoon as I lay in bed listening to the cries of Mother Nature. Don't worry, I didn't just wake up, I just haven't moved much in my last few waking hours.

Most people would consider today a day of bad weather, I consider it blissful. As nice as a sunny day with a gentle, cool breeze is, the tears from heaven are far more pleasant and relaxing to me, than having the sun beat down on my face and having to wipe away a drop of sweat that has accumulated from the heat. Today is a good day.

Today is also my last day of "vacationing". I've somehow managed to turn my five days of vacation into a month long retreat. From Utah, to Idaho, up to New York, and now back to DC, I've had one adventure after another. I'm ready to start working again, but I'm convinced that in another month, I'll be ready for some more time off. Here's a recap of my month of relaxation.
  • Doctor, dentist, hair appointment
  • Got a new job
  • Oral surgery
  • Steph' wedding
  • Worked at Joe Morley's (who doesn't like to make money on Vacation?)
  • A trip to the cabin in Idaho to go wakeboarding
  • Visited the "Big Apple" for the first time
to include: Central Park, the Zoo, Empire State Building, Time Square, Battery Park, Ground Zero, Shopping, 5th Avenue, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Little Italy, walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, Rockefeller Center, Mary Poppins, the US Open, and ate way too much good food for one weekend.
  • Got another new job...apparently I can't make up my mind
  • Spent a week "relaxing" in/around my apartment
  • Vicariously lived the first week back to BYU through all of my friends still in college (I probably shouldn't admit to that)
  • Had a tooth fall out
  • More dentist visits

It's been fun, but it's time I wake back up to reality and begin working once again.

You didn't mention that you got to hang out with me in NYC. And I don't show up in any of the pictures? Man...
