I'll be here, although I'd much rather be renting a cabin in Michigan and hanging out on a porch with my dog.

Looks like I'll be working for a good portion of it. Sigh.

LOL @ Brain. That joke never gets old.

I'll be doing my town's annual picnic in the park, followed by watching fireworks that evening.
