It's been quite a long week. The beagle dug a hole and escaped from the yard not once, but twice, and was picked up by the dog catcher both times. It's costing over $200 in fines and citations. Yikes! I think I'll throw myself on the mercy of the court and try to get it reduced a little bit. She spent 2 nights in a row in jail!

Last weekend Scott did a run downtown, The Mass St. Mile. He did well. Terri and Jamie and I walked about 2 blocks of the mile, but we got t-shirts so whatever. Yesterday I was supposed to walk a 2 mile "Sport to Spirit" walk and did not make it out of bed. Still got a t-shirt. Yay!
Sat the 16th was dinner at Scott and Terri's, and lots of friends came over, including Steve who drove in from KC. His significant other just left to pursue her masters at Rutgers, so he's probably lonely. We had a fun night.

I have adopted a new roommate... Now in addition to Curtis sleeping upstairs, I have Jamie on the couch. I like to take in the strays.

Last night we went down the street a ways to see this house fire, and it was bad. Today I learned that only one person made it out of there, and that person was a long-term care provider for a woman with MS here in Lawrence who has 3 daughters that I know. It was terrible to hear, as she's practically a member of their family, and she lost her husband and 4 kids. I'm sending good wishes and prayers her way, as I am sure lots of people are. I can't begin to imagine what she must be going through.

Friday we had a work retreat, in which we actually set a lot of exciting goals.... our supervisor is very enthusiastic about all of the changes, as you can see by the pictures.
More to come later this eve.

Good thing you have those new roomies so you can pay for Beagle Jail.
I hear you!
