Memorial Day Weekend

And so begins a long weekend...

I think it is pretty incredible how having an extra day in the weekend gets so many people workplace on Friday afternoon was completely empty. Almost everyone had left early, excited for what was to come. Although I stayed until about 5:30PM, I crossed off a lot of tasks on my to-do list, which is always a good feeling.

For most of the country, Memorial Day Weekend means the beginning of Summer. In Alaska, although "Summer" may be beginning, the temperature is still in the low 50s and a sunny sky is unlikely (this is when I look at the mountains and remember how lucky I am to have them so close).

With the prediction of rain all weekend (no camping for me), due to the fact Matt has to work every day of the weekend (oh the joys of working retail), and because Leah is vacationing in the Southwestern United States, I made another to-do list that I am determined to finish...

  • LONG run
  • Visit the Farmers Market...maybe two of them!
  • Clean the inside of my car
  • Organize/clean my closet
I am confident in my "crossing off the list" abilities....the LONG run has already been crossed off the list (8 miles down!)...

...and I have the help of RIO!
