I had a very busy weekend. My sister-in-law Karen came, with her fiance Pete, to stay with us. My friend J Dylan came down as well. While Holly enteretained her sister, and future brother-in-law, JD and I drove down to Monticello, Iowa on Saturday afternoon to take part in a surprise 30th birthday party for his sister. Much fun was had, and we played a lot of "Catchphrase" which is a good party game. I told her she's definitely getting old, as the party had broken up by 9:30 p.m. Now, I have a hectic week ahead of me, at least 4 meetings to attend, and I need to get as much done as possible, as I'm leaving for Vegas next Saturday. Kristin, my student assistant, is gone too, as her grandfather passed away Thursday, so I'll be on my own getting all this work done.
