Weekly Recap- August 26- September 1, 2013

This week was a bunch of ups and downs.  On Tuesday, my grandmother passed away.  I flew up on Wednesday evening to Virginia to be with my family.  On Thursday, we had the service and I flew home that night, landing at midnight and getting home at 1am.  I was then back at the airport at 5am to fly out to California for the Dumbo Double Dare.  And on Sunday, I celebrated my 33rd birthday.  It was such a sad week in the middle, but fun at the end.  I have a lot to catch up on.
