It's been a harrowing couple weeks at work. Last week nearly broke my resolve. This week was just three days for me, as I'm about to have a 5-day weekend and spend some time lounging by a waterfall, if all goes well.
Hopefully, I return to Boston rejuvenated and ready for the rest of the summer (which is FLYING by).

Girl: I'll be the one with pretty teeth.
