[CD Ryan]

Quite a busy weekend -- visits, farewells, fireworks -- then straightaway back to work. I haven't been reading much -- my evening hours have collapsed into a few jotted notes and far too many episodes of Law & Order. One more month of 60 hour weeks and then it's off to Vancouver.

I have a demanding weekend ahead -- two twelve-hour days in the sun watching my swimmers at one final meet. I hope to settle a bit after that. I also hope to uncover some treasures as I begin the process of clearing out my childhood closet and whittling my 'essential' belongings down to what can fit in four suitcases (I'm moving via airplane).

More to come when my mind has returned.
