I flew home on Wednesday, turned in my travel receipts on Thursday, and Friday hit the internet for some job hunting. No luck yet. And now tomorrow is the very last shuttle landing ever. It is the day that represents the end of the shuttle program, the end of my job, and the beginning of a long void in US space travel. I plan to wear waterproof mascara.

Also, I spent today over at the KSC press site again as a media representative for Boeing. I'll post the interviews when I find them!

I spent my weekend in South Florida with family, celebrating a multitude of events. The big one was my grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary on Sunday night! Can you believe it?!? 60 years of being happily married! Considering that many couples nowadays don't even make it to 6 years, 60 is just absolutely incredible! We also celebrated my dad's 60th birthday, my grandpa's 80th birthday, and of course, the 4th of July. The weekend was filled with family members from all over the country, some of whom I was meeting for the first time. My aunt hosted the anniversary party at her home and it was a gorgeous event. There was food (including a crepe station!!! yum!), music (lots of oldies, which I loved), drinking, dancing, fireworks, and mingling. And then the next day we got up and did it all again, although on a bit of a smaller scale, for a family 4th of July cook out. Overall it was a fabulous weekend! Congrats again Grandma and Grandpa!

In the meantime, everyone have a wonderful 4th of July weekend! Enjoy an extra day off of work, some good barbecue, and, of course, fireworks!
