How are you spending the 4th?


It's a holiday weekend...yeah!!

Grandy will still be working on homework (by the way I did well on the next exam in line) but wanted to send a Happy 4th to all my faithful readers (and even the occasional readers).

How will you be spending the 4th?

Will you be BBQ'ing? Boating? Lighting your own fireworks? If you're anywhere in California, I don't know how many of us will be doing that. Even townships who usually put on their own displays are cancelling them because of the current fire situation.

Me, I'll be doing homework, biking, studying, kayaking, studying... Yep, going back to Tahoe with my friends. Won't have internet again...drat...but am definitely doing some pre-posts so you can still come check on me.

I appreciate every one's support through everything with my grandmother, work layoffs, exams, packing, etc. The blogosphere is definitely a great group indeed.

I don't think I've been very funny lately, and I know some of you typically come to laugh. I think I've made a few of you cry. I know a couple have peed your pants, but I'm not taking the blame for that (you know who you are).

Grandy is finally breathing again and will come back with some humorous or moving tales to entertain the masses (or at least the few that stop to read).

Thank you! Happy 4th of July!!

Hug a soldier and thank them for our freedom while you're at it. :)

Happy Independence Day! I will be at my BFF's house getting really drunk and throwing my body on a slip n slide (who cares about that 100 pound limit??)...maybe lighting off some fireworks for the kids...if we remember:)

My brother-in-law will be with us and he's just moved from Washington State where you can't get good Mexican food--so I'll be barbecuing Carne Asada!

Have a great 4th! My brother-in-law is in the army and will be visiting, so I will definitely hug him (and thank him also). BTW, he's shipping off to Iraq for the third tour sometime later this year. If you don't mind, please say a prayer or two that James will stay safe. Thanks! :-)

We're spending Friday evening with friends. We'll probably do a game night. And then on Saturday we have a bbq.

We're definitely looking forward to the long weekend.

We're going to do the typical celebration with rice of course because a party is not a party unless there's rice... ;)

I wish I had half that many fun things planned for the weekend!

Have a great time!

camping in Durango, CO. We'll prolly do some rafting on the Animas River and consume some of the super fine microbrewed beer (Steamworks, Ska...). Maybe some biking. Ankle is still not up to par enough to hike but I'll surely thing REALLY HARD about hiking.

Congratulations! And I'm glad you will be having some fun this July 4! As for me, I will be watching "Pops Go the Fourth" as I do every year. I love the Boston Pops! Have a great holiday!
