Wow! What a day!

Today was a pretty long day, for some reason. I got pretty tired by dinner time. Part of it is the weather, it's really cloudy. Hurricane Gustav is on his way, but he's been downgraded to a category 1 and we're getting the tail end of it. Basically they're just predicting a lot of rain and a little wind. Nothing like what Lousiana got or anything. They probably won't even cancel classes tomorrow. But he's rolling in slowly but surely.

I also decided not to do the internship I was going to do for the First Year Experience gal. It just seemed out of my knowledge area and too much responsibility for the small amount of time i had to offer. I would have been doing a half-way job instead of a very good job like she expects. She was ok with it and didn't seem too upset about anything. I have, however, decided to help out with year book. With my time freed up from the internship, I can fit in doing some yearbook stuff. I can do it on my own time (weekends and evening) and it pays just a little through out the year. I'm pretty excited about it. It's something i've always wanted to do, but never really had a chance to do... so now i'm going to do it!

Last night we had a little cook out. We had over Jeremy and Anna, Matt, Gordon, Laura, Kelley, and Josiah. We grilled burgers and dogs on our new grill.
He didn't even burn himself up! And the food was pretty good too. We're going to work on grilling chicken next.

I also discovered today that our freezer causes freezer burn pretty quickly. I was a little sad, but I cooked the chicken anyway... It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't the best. How can we prevent freezer burn? Any good ideas?

Anyway, I need to get going to work. I'm hoping the weather holds out until I get back to the apartment!

Aw, Brad looks like he is having fun... freezer burn is from older meat or meat that has been frozen, thawed and frozen again. Look for really fresh stuff...

Grilling, what fun!!! Another thought about freezing meat... make sure the container or freezer bags, etc is a good quality designed for freezer use. Grandpa and Grandma
