Festivities cont.

Since I’m not the most computer-savvy, I find it easier to post pictures when there aren’t a lot of words. So I decided to break up the “festivities” post for my sanity. Sorry for the interrupted reading. After Dville, we drove up to the Chesapeake Bay to meet J’s group of friends for some camping…

Festivities

This has been quite an active two weeks! I promised a recap of my surprise party with some more pictures, so here goes … I was surprised for the party. I had some idea that J was up to something, but I wasn’t sure when and what exactly. I thought we were going to my…

Fun with imaging

I use ichat for work every day. It’s awesome. But that’s besides the point. We each have our symbol showing we are online. Mine has always been a firefly. There weren’t many choices. A lot of people use dog symbols, which is fine, but it gets confusing. My one co-worker created a mini-him for his…

ZZZZZZZZZ

Raise your hand if you are staying up too late watching the Olympics. Yeah, that would be us. I can’t say I’ve always been a die-hard fan of the Olympics. I mean I would watch here and there. But this time around, I’ve been watching just about every night until my eyelids can’t stay open.…

She is going there for 2 weeks to celebrate her graduation from radiology school and for a wedding (how’s that for a destination wedding?). Her layover was just…

US citizenship

Chile’s husband will be taking the citizenship test and awhile ago, we were flipping through his study book (which is HUGE) to quiz ourselves. Phoebes did pretty well, but some of the questions really required you to take a trip back to your 7th grade history class. My aunt sent me this link and I…

Tag, you’re it.

In the blogosphere, people like to “tag” you to fill out surveys. Much like those floating around in the email world. So I’ve been tagged. It was a pretty unique one, so why not?* Write a six-word memoir. I chose:There’s no second chance at life. * Post it to your blog including a visual illustration…

Bear haven

The jury is still out on this guy, Charlie Vandergaw. In my opinion, he’s missing a few screws, but I give him credit for for finding a way to survive over 20 years with da bears. He definitely has some sort of bear sense that the rest of us lack. But I’m not sure I…
