Free Movies

Most of you know J and I are thrifty, or as my Dad would say, downright cheap. So our local video store started a program a few months ago in which you could rent older movies for free on Thursdays. J and I jumped right on that! It fit perfectly with our plan to watch…

RIP Babchi

It’s been awhile since I last blogged. I have a good excuse. My grandma, Teofilia, or better known as “Tillie,” died last Saturday and so we spent the week juggling between returning from our respective trips, driving down to Jersey, attending the services, then returning to work. It was quite a whirlwind. A little bit…

Last weekend, this weekend

I’ve been super busy at work this week and every night, so my weekend update is a little delayed … Last weekend, J and I played house with my almost 6-year-old nephew, Bones, and 2-year-old niece, CurlyLocks. We volunteered to watch the kids for my sister, QuickQuestion, and brother-in-law, Yankee, because they had a christening…

Fly no more?

There’s been a lot of shakeup in the airline business and the recent closure of several airlines has us a little bit worried. The shutdown of Skybus hit close to home, actually. I previously blogged about our awesome experience with the airline for our trip to Danville in February. We knew Skybus was doomed from…

Coincidentally, my first name is actually common among French … men. That wasn’t my Mom’s intent and our family has absolutely no…

Score!

My mom brought us good luck in soccer yesterday. We killed the other team. They stopped counting the goals, but it ended up being something like 15-1. So since we were ahead by so much, I played up (I usually play defense). Everyone was trying really hard to set me up for a goal. Finally,…

Snow Delay

So my parental units are finally coming to NH for a visit. We’ll call them Short on Coffee and Big on Lotto. They tried for Thanksgiving, but my dad got really sick and they couldn’t make it. Even though my dad’s health is still up and down, they were determined to give it a second…
