This was my last official day of summer!!!!!!! I have had numerous people offer to take over my blog for me, including Mark who has ANOTHER WHOLE MONTH of summer before he starts teaching in Santa Cruz, and my cousin who gets paid to take off select holidays like Labor Day. I've also had millions of fans saying to me, "Kristen, please--whatever you do--don't stop blogging just because you're going back to work!!" Then they cry on my shoulder and I hold them, rock them gently, and weep.
I've done a lot of deliberating. I've definitely thought about going on blog hiatus until next summer. But then I remembered something. During the year when I'm "working very hard" and "earning my paycheck" I finish work everyday at 3pm. On Fridays, I'm done at 2:15. I am home in time for happy hour EVERY SINGLE DAY and I get paid to take off every holiday--including lunar new year and Ceaser Chavez day. Soooooo, while I appreciate the offers to take over the best part of my life, I'll be continuing to post during the school year.
So dry your eyes young cherubs, and check out a montage of my last week of summer vacation.

That last picture is of EMT/fire fighter/cop guys dragging a dead person in a body bag off of the beach. Great ending to a great summer.
