One Week Ago.

It seems very strange that a week ago at this time I was sitting in the middle of Washington Square Park with 15,000 other people, shrouded in a purple robe and topped with a black mortar board hearing Wynton Marsalas play the trumpet for his graduation speech.

And now? I'm sitting on the floor outside my office, waiting for someone to come open it since I don't have keys yet. As of today I've worked about 30 hours, done all kinds of things, and still gotten to spend a little bit of time with Matthew and the fam. Elizabeth and Dash are here, and Ian will be arriving in about 45 minutes. Tonight is my mom's "Big Hat Dinner"- she's getting a community award for her stellar service- only three women including her have received this award in the last 50 years!

I'm working at the GOAL Foundation- the place I worked last summer as well. It is good to be back, and I'm looking forward to the time when the marathon is over (saturday!) and I can figure out how my weeks will look a bit better. At this point my hours are a bit crazy and a bit more than I'll work regularly and I'm happy with that because so far I feel like I skipped summer! I understand that you don't get summers as you get older, but that's why I want to enjoy this last one! Really though, I'm happy to be at GOAL and thrilled to be working on the marathon and diving into a routine already. Hopefully things will calm down after Saturday and I can catch up on lunch dates and wedding plans!

Hope to see or hear from each of you soon!

I miss you and am very happy to read an update. Busy is probably annoying, but good. I would rather be busy at home than bored and antsy. Bored = bad! :)
Anyway, I wore your rain boots yesterday in the storm and thought of you.
