[ 0 ] July 6, 2012 |

If you stayed in town and worked this week it was one hell of a mind trip! With most of us being off on the 4th, we came back not knowing how to comprehend that we just had 1 single, random day off in the middle of the week..Tuesday felt like a Friday, and Wednesday felt like a Sunday. And yesterday was definitely the roughest of Mondays.. Confused? We are too! BUT at last, there is some great news because today actually is Friday! We envy those enjoying the beach this week, but there are plenty of great concerts to catch this weekend!
