Whirlwind tour of Bji
Ten days away felt like a month! Thursday night I picked up Julie G. (with her new Bronx accent) from the airport. We had dinner with Shannon Anderson and talked about boys, politics and education policy. I left her asleep on my couch and headed for work the next morning.

Friday when I got into town the carnival was going so Amber, Taylor and I went down to the waterfront to see who was downtown and to play bingo. I actually won $20 after the lady next to pointed out my bingo. I gave her some of my winnings and bought the next round for Amber and Taylor. It paid for our fair food for the rest of the night.

Saturday, I went to my neighbor's graduation party and talked to the City Clerk from Northome. She had nothing but praise to say about Saxhaug's LA, who was helping her get their money from DEED for the new City Hall.

That night I got together with Kate, who I hadn't talked to since I moved a way and Jake who was on leave from Peace Corps in Guatemala. We were partying like it was Junior year again complete with drinking games, bar hoping and karoke.

Sunday I sat back and watched the parade go by. For the first time in about 20 years I didn't walk in it. The band was awesome and the DFL made a good showing. That was also the day Angi called and told me she wanted to move the date of her wedding up from September to the following Saturday. Ack!

Monday the love of my life, Jessica, came up and we worshipped the sun, with breaks for bar runs, for two days. Tuesday night we pretended we were coming from a fabulous event for an excuse to wear pretty dresses to the bar.

My parents and I took Grandpa up to spend the 4th of July in Big Falls, my mom's hometown. Grandpa had the best time talking to all his old students and friends. My cousins were up with their fiances. Everyone up there knows Sen. Bakk. Pretty much the first time I haven't had to explain who I work for. I love the chainsaw competition and the kiddie races and drinking beer at 1:00pm in the Muni Liquor store with my relatives. And Sen. Saxhaug was in the parade! But the kids running around with toy machine guns playing war was a little disturbing.

Thursday I helped my mom clean Grandpa's house and later we brought him to Frank Moe's fundraiser with Al Franken. It was so much fun to talk to all the Dems up there. Later, I went out to Angi's to talk about the wedding and write the ceremony.

Friday I got my car fixed, met Angi for coffee, went with her to talk to the officiant, pick up her marriage license and print flyers to had out at work. Then I went home and baked the wedding cake and helped my mom haul stuff out for her rummage sale. Finally, I took Angi out for an impromptu Bachelorette Party.

Saturday, I got up early and helped with the rummage sale before picking up last minute wedding needs and hauling hanging baskets to Angi's house to get ready for the ceremony and party.

Sunday, I was pooped and stuck in traffic for most of the afternoon.

Now, back to work.
