    Another week has past and the weekend is upon us.

    This should be an exciting weekend for me. My fiancé & I are flying to California to attend my grandparents 60th anniversary. They are getting pretty old and there may not be too many opportunities to visit them. I don't think their heath would allow them to attend our wedding in the fall.

    It will be a quick trip, we fly out of Edmonton at 6:40 am on Saturday and will get back here just before midnight on Sunday. Not much time for sight seeing or for photography but I'll see what I can do.

    What's everybody else doing?

    Man, 60 years is awsome. Congrats to them.

    Hopefully, I'm picking up a used Nikon N90 I just got on ebay. Turns out the seller is about 30 min away from me. This will be my first autofocus that will have owned.

    I should finally have a weekend to enjoy after a bunch of work the last few weeks. Although I do have to come into the office tomorrow morning to migrate our network on to a new Internet connection. Pure joy!

    Cross your fingers for me that we get an offer on our house this weekend (went on the market earlier this week)! :)

    Feel lucky your not in Michigan. The economy is so crappy here that unless it's new construction, houses are on the market for a year. You can drive around and point at all the houses going into forclosure.

    I have a feeling California will be facing its own problems in the next few years, but who knows. Right now things are still crazy out here!

    This weekend is really exciting for me because I'm taking the SAT tomorrow! Ok, well maybe that's not so exciting.

    I'm flying into Sacramento and driving about 60 miles north to Gridley for the party and staying in Yuba City for the night.

    Chase, good luck with the house. I haven't sold one yet, but buying sure was a battle.

Every Friday we are allowed to be casual and wear jeans..mmmm jeaaaaaans :drool: well I find out this morning that has been changed last night and from now on its "corporate" casual. WELL HELL THATS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DRESSING AS THE REST OF THE WEEK..grrrrrrrr....wait I can wear a sweater with my shirt instead of a blazer....woohooo....



    sorry, had to vent..that just really gets my goat...when new people come in and take the last little thread of light at the end of the tunnel for the end of the week...
