Ted and I watched The Adjustment Bureau this evening. It was a bit slow and drawn out but it has an interesting premise. I realized after watching the movie it is based on a short story. I can definitely see it as a short story. Making a full length movie out of the short story was a bit ambitious.

A few weeks ago Ted and I donated money to C.A.R.E 4 Paws for a puppy named Mikey who needed surgery. Today we received a hand-written thank you note and an update on Mikey's condition. Enough money was raised and Mikey's surgery was successful. He is now healing and will be ready for adoption soon.

Picture #1: The IMT booth at the Relay for Life walk.
Picture #2: There was all sorts of entertainment throughout the 24-hour event including these talented dancers.
Picture #3: Lots of companies set up booths to raise money. I particularly liked this lemonade stand.
Picture #4: A few years ago I met Adriana through the HR classes I took through UCSB. I haven't seen her in 2 1/2 years and on an unexpected and incredibly sad note, Adriana let me know her husband Nate passed away in March. He passed away after a 10 month battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Adriana, her family and friends made up the "La Familia" team. They were the highest fundraisers for the Goleta walk and they raised over $7000 for the American Cancer Society. I was so sad to hear this news but what a wonderful way to honor her husband's life and memory.

Ted and I met his cousin Edward, his wife Stacy, and their friends Joe, Rena, and Cindy in Santa Barbara today. We started off with brunch at Tupelo Junction Cafe. After brunch we strolled down State Street all the way to the wharf. It was a beautiful day to be outdoors and not only is it Independence Day it is also Joe's birthday.
