This week began with the promise of being ordinary.

Wednesday marked my final day working in the costume shop! I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand: yay, no work! I can focus on preparing for the upcoming school year; researching for shows, drawing, getting our finances in order, cooking, and generally having fun! On the other hand, we need all the work we can get and I feel a slight discrepancy between how much we were told we'd work and how much we actually did. But then I go lounge by the pool or curl up with a good book and remember the joys of summer vacation and the complaints float away.

Last Sunday evening we were met with a pleasant surprise: the Vaisey's - a family of six we met while we were in Berkeley - were in Bloomington visiting Rebekah's sister, Zilia. They were only staying through breakfast the following morning, but with work in the costume shop winding down it was no problem for me to come into work a little late, so we scheduled a date. Of course, we weren't in Berkeley very long and we didn't spend very much time with the Vaiseys before we all moved (they moved to South Carolina for Steve to teach Sociology at Duke) but when we did get together it was epic. The same was true this time. We only had a short time so we wasted none of it and had a blast in catching up.
It was inexplicably good to see these people. Obviously because they have good fashion taste.
