TGIF

I checked the Life Less Ordinary blog the other day to see if that chick updated it and what a slacker, she hasn’t! After getting a harsh reprimand about the issue from her husband last night, she decided it was time. So what’s been going on guys? Last weekend was busy with J’s work events…

CT High Point

On our way home Sunday, J & I hiked to the highest point in CT, which is on the way up Mt. Frissell (in Mass) at a whopping 2,380 feet.This was a nice, short hike (3ish miles), but it was hotter than hell. This was our 10th high point. Sometimes finding the trailhead to the…

Take this bread …

Bones is growing up fast. I guess kids do that. He made his Communion this weekend! Made us all so proud. Bones is getting old and smart. He said to me, “I don’t know if this is rude, Aunt Pay, but your butt kind of sticks out.” Well, at least we know he is very…

Earth Day

As I sit here, on Earth Day, recycling my work papers, I am pondering an important question. First let me admit that I cannot kick the habit of printing out all the work-related journal articles and reports to read and underline. I am just not an online reader. I never want an iPad or Kindle…

Vegas

J woke from his slumber finally and filled me in on all the details of the bachelor party in Vegas and I thought you would all like to know and see pictures. So here goes … Did you get all that? Just like the movie The Hangover, only worse! Weren’t those pictures wild and crazy?

More movie reviews

I have more reviews of the Oscar winners! Go here for 1981-present (although, we have yet to see this year’s winner, The Hurt Locker). Of the 82 award-winning movies, we have seen and rated 57!!! More than halfway to our goal! We will probably be slowing down as summer comes, but I think we will…

Hoppy Easter

My rents (Short on Coffee and Big on Lotto) have come and gone. It was a truly gratifying visit. My family has had a tumultuous last 2 years, so visits like this are priceless. The weather in the Northeast has just been spectacular. I have a feeling it’s not going to last, but you just…

Just call me Pele …

Besides our co-ed soccer team, I sub sometimes for a woman’s team on Wednesdays. Last night, I played in one of their games. I scored. J was watching from the sidelines yesterday and he was so proud of me. He said they passed the ball to me on the wing, I stopped it, looked and…

Spring sweetness

One of the things NH is known for is its maple syrup. This weekend, more than 65 sugar houses across the state had open houses as they are in the middle of syrup production season. The season lasts about 4-6 weeks when the nights are still below freezing, but the days are above freezing. Even…

Bride-to-be

NHBound had her shower Friday night! J & I cannot wait for this wedding in June between NHBound and Mouth … we’ve been waiting for 7+ years! This is her third shower (one in Phoenix, one in Denver and one in NH), so she is becoming quite an expert with the bow hat. Right after…
