8-2-2

This is our soccer record for the first winter session, which ended last night. I couldn’t be prouder! We’ve been playing with the same team for over a year now and we’ve really gotten our sh%& together. We still have a lot of players come and go each session, but there’s about 6 of us…

Yurtopia

A few weeks ago, I claimed J had the coolest job in the world because he got to go to conferences at ski lodges and win free hut stays. But I also have a cool job. I freelance occasionally for a NH magazine and my latest assignment was about—you guessed it—yurts! Not only have I…

Got recreation?

Last week, J passed a test and became a certified recreation director.Not sure what that really means, but he studied really hard for the test. It seems being “certified” in your field is the new Master’s. I’m only two credits away from being certified as a medical writer, but I’m not holding my breath because…

Zumba craze

Has anyone jumped on the Zumba bandwagon? As usual, I’m late. My kickboxing instructor convinced me to give it a try. As uncoordinated as I am, I’ve been doing okay with kickboxing and ballroom/latin dancing with J, so I thought how bad could it be? Plus, a lot of my friends have raved about it.…

Bye bye Marlboro

OMG. This piece of news floored me. I was convinced we might be getting around in Jetson-style vehicles before this happened. Danville restaurants go smoke-free under new law I grew up in a smoky home. In the days when the warnings on smoking were less OBVIOUS, ShortonCoffee would smoke in the car with us. My…

Tree hugger

I’ve often said that my office window faces the backyard. Well, I’ve had a hard time working this morning because freakin ShortShorts is up in this tree cutting branches. My palms are all sweaty and my heart is racing because I am so afraid for him. Here’s a picture of the holy mother of a…

To the Cuse we went

In keeping with J’s motto—will travel anywhere for a concert—J and I continued from Mohegan Sun to Syracuse, NY, for a Phish show. Cause, you know, we were already on the road. And the stupid Phish lottery he entered gave him front row tickets in an arena of 7,000 people where they haven’t played since…
