Congrats are in order!

I was so busy wallowing in my “numbness” that I forgot to mention we attended a wedding on Saturday. Guess where it took place? In our living room!!! J’s childhood friend, theBuddha, got married in Vegas and we watched the live feed. A first time for both of us, but it was neat to be…

What are the odds?

The biggest difference between J and I is our luck. He has it all. I have pretty much have none. We balance each other out. So last night we had a soccer game. My mouth is mostly healed, aside from the lingering numbness in my lips and chin (a story for another day). I felt…

Life below zero

I survived my surgery and my first anesthesia experience. I’m recovering slowly. Don’t really feel like talking about it, but I do feel like pointing out the temperatures we’ve been experiencing. In case you can’t see in the picture, it says -18.2. The low was actually -20 on Friday. That’s NEGATIVE 20. Apparently the lowest…

Prescription alert!

Just wanted to share the latest money-saving offer, if you haven’t seen it on the news. A few food store chains are allowing you to fill your prescription for generic antibiotics for FREE. And with cold and flu season among us, I’m sure we will all be filling a prescription soon. You can already fill…

Single-self behavior

Let me start by saying, I love being married. But, I still love my alone time every once in awhile. J is at one of his famous recreation director conferences. You know, the ones where he plays wiffle ball, drinks beer and complains about budget cuts. Except this time, he is northern NH, so they…

2008 in review

I saw this on some other blogs and thought, why not? Did anyone close to you give birth?Only 11 of our closest friends … Did anyone close to you die?My grandma. Sadly, two other friends of J’s family also died, but I wasn’t close to them. What dates from 2008 will remain etched upon your…

Shock to the heart …

Our 2-year-old flat-screen LCD TV (the one we bought with the gift card my bridesmaid gave us for my bridal shower!) is in the repair shop right now because of static electricity. The other day, J went to turn off the TV and touched the on/off button, only to receive a nasty shock. We noticed…

Happy 2009!

We returned from our 1,100-mile+ road trip to the tri-state area, which seems to have become an annual event around Christmas! In any case, we visited 3 new babies, a very excited niece and nephew, my mom, dad, sis and bro-in-law, High Point State Park (that was just something we’ve wanted to do for awhile,…

Music Therapy

If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been blogging lately. I’ve definitely had the blues and there’s a lot of crap going on right now that I don’t feel like broadcasting across the blogosphere. In fact, I think the past week was one of the worst weeks in my life (1). But I will say, last…

The dishes are done, dude

Crickets? Anyone else hear crickets around here? Sorry for my lack of blogging, but here’s a delayed recap of Thanksgiving weekend. The visit from MamaFashion and SILMeow included: Dare I say a delish meal?? Lots of Scrabble! A road trip to Vermont to visit MamaFashion’s old friends. Here we all are the Harpoon Brewery. Look…

Gratitude

My family always had a tradition to go around the table and say what we’re all thankful for. Figured I’d share with you all.J Yes, more gushing on him. He is truly my partner in crime and I’m amazed to have met someone who matches my personality so well. I can’t imagine life without him!FamilyBoth…
