life lately: cape cod!


I'm back!!!  Actually, I got back on Saturday night, but I've been busy enjoying a relaxing reentry on Sunday and not-so-much enjoying my reentry into the office on Monday, so I haven't had time for blogging.  The Cape was lovely, as always, even if our crowd was a little smaller than it has been in recent years (K couldn't come because of class--boo, my brother Colin left after a couple of days--he hates the beach, and my brother Jonathan's girlfriend stayed only the first (rainy) weekend--she had to work).  Still, it was nice and relaxing and full of food and drinks and Bananagrams and Trivial Pursuit, and even though it rained for the first half of the week, we were treated with lots of glorious sunshine for the second half and ended on a high note.
