Family Visits Los Alamos
My parents and little sister came to town for my dad's birthday this week and I got a break from work over a long weekend. We floated in the sky on a hot air balloon, marvelled at creatures from the deep sea in the aquarium, caught plenty of pokemon at the park, danced at an Irish folk concert, explored ancient cave dwellings, saw a couple old churches including a staircase built by Saint Joseph himself, visited the University of New Mexico, and spent time enjoying each other's company.
Now it's time to get back to work and catch up on everything I've missed. My qualifying exam was unfortunately postponed and rescheduled for a later date to accommodate all the committee members. Managing plans in Berkeley while away from the school can be frustrating, but it all seems to work out in the end.
