Abbreviated Happy Hour

This was a long, busy week at work so several of us decided to head out for an abbreviated happy hour. Leanna, Carmen, Todd, Paraag and myself headed to Champps and chatted over a few beers before we all split up for the weekend. It was very hot and humid out today and the beers helped to cool things down.

I got home around 7:30 PM and straightened up the house in preparation for Jen and Jason’s arrival later tonight. In fact, I got home just in time to watch the space shuttle Atlantis launch, the first shuttle launch of 2007.

Jen and Jason are due in sometime between 10 and 11 PM. I’m going to drive out to Bethesda to pick them up from the bus stop because at that time of night, it’s faster to drive than for them to take the train.

When I got home this evening, the skies opened up briefly for a passing thunderstorm. It poured for a few minutes, and then just as quickly, the sun came out again. It rained long enough for my car to get a decent washing, however.

I’m on vacation three weeks from tonight!
