This morning I had the pleasure of riding the Harley to work!! Ryan needed the van to bring home ceramics projects. Gee darn. LOL It was a nice ride, and the gate guard was really nice and I didn’t even have to stop at the gate – he could see my ID in the clear pocket on my orange reflective vest. It was a busy day today, but it went by mostly fast. We formed outside with instruments this morning so we could do one quick run through of the Pass in Review for tomorrow’s ceremony. That went really well and then it was off to Brass Quintet rehearsal. Today was our day for Chief to come listen to us, and he left with a smile on his face so that’s a good thing. We played a variety of styles for him to show off our versatility. I had a little bit of time to check e-mail and do a couple of admin things before lunch, which was out with friends (KC, RR, and ME) at our favorite Korean place. YUM!!! Then after lunch was a staff meeting with all the shop heads and group leaders. We had A LOT of stuff to talk about and the meeting took all afternoon – 2 1/2+ hours. I had had a mild headache all day, so once the meeting was done I asked Top if I could head home – between the headache and being on the Harley and wanting to get home before it started raining. He said I could – probably helps that I was at work until 1730 yesterday. I did make it home safely and before the rain began.
Ryan picked Robert up from Child Time on his way home from class, and I made spaghetti for dinner before we headed to Robert’s last night of soccer camp. He got a camp t-shirt and had a lot of fun playing again tonight. They did end it about 15 minutes early due to lightning. Then we headed to Big 5 Sporting Goods and we bought Robert cleats, shin guards, a ball, and socks as he will be participating in the Sierra Vista Soccer League starting in September. He’s excited about that. I guess I’m officially a soccer mom now. I got some crocheting done while he was playing and then some more after we got home and I had laundry going.
It’s been raining quite hard for about the past hour and a half or so, and our street is flooded, our back yard is flooded, part of our front yard is flooded, and we have water leaking in above the sliding door to the back yard. It was a pretty awesome thunderstorm though!!!
Today’s high: 89
