Crawling across the finish line

I made it.  Today is the last day before a week long vacation and boy do I need it.  I think we all do.  I hate to assign blame, but I lay this squarely at the feet of Ike.  I spoke to several people this week about it and they all feel the same way.  Like we have been swimming against the tide, barely keeping our head above water.   I'm hoping this week will allow us to catch our breath and get back into the flow of the school year.  

Work is exhausting and then I come home and do absolutely nothing.  I am trying to keep up with my online ventures, but I just haven't.  I read emails but don't respond.  I read blogs but don't comment.  I look at photos on photoblogs and Flickr, but don't comment.  I have responsibilities that I need to take care of for Houston Photobloggers and they sit in my inbox waiting for me.  

So TGIF.  I've been waiting for this one.

PS.  I just found this.  I think it is a sign that today will be a good one.
