We ran out of luck

We lost our game last night. I’m pretty bummed about it because it’s a team we should have beaten. I don’t think we’ll have a chance at the playoffs with this loss. We only have 3 games left and they are all against good teams. Last night’s team was decent, but I think the cards…

Coffee, lotto anyone?

My parental units departed this morning. It was really an awesome visit. My dad (Big on Lotto) was in great spirits, despite some big medical issues coming up. I love seeing him like this. It’s hard when you have a chronically ill parent and you are not there in person to see how they are…

Score!

My mom brought us good luck in soccer yesterday. We killed the other team. They stopped counting the goals, but it ended up being something like 15-1. So since we were ahead by so much, I played up (I usually play defense). Everyone was trying really hard to set me up for a goal. Finally,…

Snow Delay

So my parental units are finally coming to NH for a visit. We’ll call them Short on Coffee and Big on Lotto. They tried for Thanksgiving, but my dad got really sick and they couldn’t make it. Even though my dad’s health is still up and down, they were determined to give it a second…

Do you ever dream about retirement? Daydream at work and think, oh I can’t wait until the day I can kick back and do nothing but vacation, travel and read books? Of course you have. We all do. But I have some bad news folks. The latest report from Fidelity Investment is out and a…

Babies!

I’m happy to announce the arrival of Antonio William, the first babe of one of my college roommates, Chile. Antonio was born March 4 weighing 7lbs 7oz, 21.5 inches. I haven’t talked to Chile yet, but I can’t wait to hear all the details! I am taking a trip down to Philly to see her…

I overheard some old bitties at J’s senior center commenting about his dress as he walked by one morning …Old bitty: “Oh geez.”Other Old bitty: “What?”Old bitty: “That J must own two outfits. One in brown and one in green. He wears the same colors all the time!”

Back from Dville

I meant to blog about our trip yesterday, but work is really busy for me right now. Really busy=practically no lunch break and long days. Really busy=no desire to write in free time. It usually gets really busy in the fall and spring. It’s happening earlier this year. Yikes. But I digress. Skybus got an…

Next stop: Dan Vegas

No time to rest this week … J and I are headed to Danville Thursday through Monday. Awhile back, we realized that Skybus, that new airline everyone is talking about, flies direct from Portsmouth to Greensboro for very cheap, so we jumped on it. I’ll let you know what I think of Skybus later. My…

Superbowl Sunday

For anyone who didn’t already know this, New Englanders are pretty intense about their sports teams. I actually didn’t quite know the extent until moving here and living through two winning seasons for their teams. Sunday night was an ugly example of what can happen when their team loses, especially to a NY team! As…
