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…

One more thing …

I blog as a way to procrastinate my writing assignments. Can you tell? So I just wanted to note some observations about the restaurants in N’awlins.*There’s far too much seafood on the menus.*They always bring you bread in a bag.*Three servers are assigned to each table–one for drinks (too bad I always order water), one…

Pop goes my ears

My ears tend to pop when I fly. Well, I feel like I’ve been flying everyday this week. Did I mention I’m back in the Bayou for business? Been here since Wednesday and leaving Sunday. Different hotel, different conference, different coworker. Anyways, I am staying on the 34th floor in this hotel and every time…
