Back to the 9th

The Friday of Camp Atlanta 2010 I had to work. Workin's for suckers! Anyway, that day Keith arrived, just hours after Chris and Sonya flew in, with a gift of hermit crabs from the Winchester Provosts to Kate and Sarah. Kate and Sarah were thrilled. Jeremiah thinks Keith is evil. Kate and Sarah named their crabs Serena and Annalise, respectively. Annalise, I'm sad to report, bit the big one the other day. I think she was depressed and offed herself in her shell, but no autopsy was performed so we'll never know for sure.

While I worked, all the girls went to get their nails done and the boys went to pick up the ginormous bounce house/ water slide. That bit about picking up the bouncy thing doesn't actually sound all that fun, so I guess being at work wasn't terrible...

Once I escaped my office, I went directly to Steve and Joy's house where all the peeps awaited me, along with some wine. We had a lovely dinner and then had to say good-bye to Mikey, which was sad. Sadder still was the ferocious storm that moved in just as she was to board her plane. She was supposed to fly home at 9:30 but instead left around midnight. Ah, but who doesn't love a few uncomfortable hours of solitude at the airport? Perfect for reading a good novel.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Anelise was a great crab. You were right about her not making it to 30 years.

Between you and me, I think Serena might have sexually assaulted her in the exercise yard. It's hard to tell, but she was withdrawn after what we around here refer to as "The Incident".
