As if life isn't hectic enough already. I'm working a lot of overtime on a big project at work (#$!%!#$!#$%$^%!#$! FDA, why do they always want lots of rush stuff in the summer?) My parents are arriving for a visit on Friday, which I'm really excited about but have a lot of things I'd like to do to my place before they arrive. And then, at 4:30 last night, I got handed another emergency project with even higher priority than the 'current big emergency'. Fun, huh? The only reason I have time for this is I'm waiting for one of the 'big strong guys' I work with (notice that's in quotes!) to arrive so I can get them to change over some tubing connections I don't have the shoulder strength for. Yea! No big plans for the weekend as I'm not sure what my parents will want to do. I assume the usual trip into the city (New York City) which should be interesting as the security is getting tighter and tighter. I noticed last time we were there that I don't even really consciously notice the police/National Guardsmen with automatic rifles anymore. I don't think I like that. I don't feel particularly unsafe going into the city, but on the otherhand, I don't plan to tempt fate and will stay happily out here on Long Island during the Republican National Convention. Better safe than sorry as they say. On that note, I think I hear Scott, so I should run.
