Over the 4th of July, I went to visit my sister. While there, my mom and another sister came down. We had a fantastic time, going to the Lincoln Shrine in Redlands. It's the largest collection of Lincoln memorabilia west of the Mississippi, who would have thunk it would be in Redlands CA! But it is and it was pretty cool.
The highlight of the week for me was the movie Transformers! It finally came out. I was so excited to see it. My sister Brittany was also (she's in the photo with Optimus Prime). I loved it so much, I saw it again the next Saturday! I could probably go see it again. I'm not sure why this movie was one of my favorites. Not the best acting in the world, but anything that takes me back to my childhood is worth the money. I so enjoyed feeling like a kid again. I remember those early Saturday moring cartoons, having to get up at 6am to watch while my parents stayed in bed and thought that's where I still was. In any case, I loved it, you should all see it!
Here is a pictures of my sister and I, we were driving down a desolate road out of Yucaipa, where my sister lives, into Redlands.

So this week has been a little crazy, I must admit. I don't mean to complain, but you know when you have so much to do and there is literally no time for it all? Work has been picking up lately, you may ask why would an archivist's day be so hectic or stressful, but let me tell you it can! Especially when your boss is a little on the mean side. Other than the sarcastic remarks I got from him and being ignored for a few days by him as well, work was okay. I was busy, which I prefer to just sitting around. But those are the times when my blog gets done, or like today, I'm just tired of work:) So my coworkers were sending around a link to a site to create your own Simpson's movie avatar! How fun! Of course I jumped at that, anything to not think about my boss next door(catching on to a theme here:( So here is my avatar. Looks somewhat like me if I dare say. So try creating one of your own, it was pretty fun and took up some time this morning. I would love to see how close yours come, so send them my way!!
