We received some bad news today about my rommates' dog Shadow. He unfortunately has a bad case of cancer and will need to be put down next week. This one week vacation looks to be a tough one. It's amazing and a little strange that it is basically one year to the day we lost our friend David. I'm beginning to hate the 4th of July more and more every year. If you can, keep my roommates in your thoughts as we venture into a week where a breakdown or breakthrough could happen at any moment.
