Business Tripping

The next few weeks will be dotted with nothing but business trips for both J and I. Tomorrow I head to the great city of Boston (that was meant to have some sarcasm) to cover a conference on pediatrics. I’m not happy that my trip to Beantown once again coincides with the baseball craziness, as…

J has a protege

Oooh, that rhymed. Well anyways, J’s childhood friend, theBuddha, had a baby yesterday. On J’s bday (remember?). We’re still in shock by this, but, his friend and girlfriend decided to carry on J’s name since the little guy was born on the 6th. So I present to you Cody Justin, all 8 lbs, 9 oz…

Someone is getting older …

***total cheese warning. Stop reading if you don’t do mushy.***Today is a big day. Today is J’s 32nd anniversary of his birthday. I can never really match his birthday planning awesomeness (e.g. my surprise 30th bday party), but I did try this weekend and will continue today. Everything tonight will be topped off with a…

Leaf Peepin’

We became leaf peepers this weekend, the term New Englanders use for those who swarm to the Northeast during the fall. We hiked Mt. Tecumseh in Waterville Valley, the lowest of the 4,000-footers in the state. There are 48 on the official list to enter the higherpointer club in NH; this made 8 for us.…

Off to Dville

Do you think we could have picked a better weekend to fly down to North Cackalacki? I mean, there’s only two hurricanes/tropical storms going on along the Eastern seaboard right now. So who wants to take bets on how delayed we will be tonight when we fly out and how delayed we will be when…

Go farmers!

J is one my most faithful readers of the blog and he has been asking me to do my post on Farm Aid ever since we got home at 3am Sunday morning. So here goes. Farmers are outstanding in their field. No really, people, they are. So support them. (PS SILAdventure, I got about 8…

7 years

I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since the Sept. 11 attacks. I was living in Phoenix at the time and getting ready for work. SmokinHotRoommate came out of her room and said we needed to turn on the TV because a plane just hit a building in NYC. What? What a freakish accident, I…

Babies in NJ

J and I went to NJ this weekend primarily for my friend Hallmark4Ever’s baby shower. It was supposed to be a surprise, but she knew every outing could be “it” as she is due in just 7 weeks!! We did surprise her Monday morning though with a belated bday celebration at her favorite diner (she…

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…
