Yesterday was a Very Big Day for a few people, and I was a proud bystander. Three of my most favorite people from the Library and Information Science program graduated, and Lacey had a barbecue to celebrate (which, thanks to her fabulous dad, involved Kobe burgers). It was a much needed but much-too-brief break in my day. I’m excited for them all, and I’ve been really thankful for their friendship. Congratulations, new librarians!
The other Big Day sort of thing that happened was that my brother moved into the dorms at Colorado School of Mines for his freshman year. His dorm is totally not dorm-like, and actually more apartment-like, complete with a dishwasher and vacuum cleaner. He’ll have three roommates — one (crazy, fun guy) from home and two others (who even I thought were kind of dorky). Classes start Tuesday. He’s going to have a good time. I hope he studies, too. We hung out last night with the whole family — for the next week or so, all three of us (my siblings and I) will be in the same general area — and then Jenny’s leaving for Philadelphia. My parents are empty-nesters now, which is kind of weird. I hope they’re excited about it.
