It was the first day of school for both Monika and me. Monika is all settled into her dorm room, it looks like her financial aid package will come through and her poison oak is starting to heal up, so she's sitting pretty over in California. I made sure to get up early enough to take Balt for a long walk. It was in the 70's by 7am. I was glad to be in an air conditioned work environment today. My day was mellow with first day, only with freshmen for only a couple of classes and the day open to get a lot of work done. I downloaded yearbook software onto all of the photo-lab computers, got my new ID picture taken and worked on my first Graphic Design project. I stayed after school to help Grace finish framing a large student project for a conference room. I came home feeling pretty fried even though it wasn't all that busy of a day. Tomorrow will be worse! I made a grilled cheese with my corn chowder soup for dinner and watched some news, which was kind of depressing. Erika came home for the first time after moving back in and it was nice to have time to talk with her. She helped me lube up my tattoo as it's been very hard to reach back there. It's still nearly 80 degrees and after 9pm, but I'm so tired I'm hoping to sleep right through the warm night.
