While Kevin and I were out in Gettysburg my dad spent some time taking pictures of us… There were a LOT of really good ones of both of us but this one made me laugh out loud so I had to share… I’ll talk to him about posting more (he took them so they’re not really mine to post)

Too much of a good thing

So it seems a little snow on Christmas isn’t always a good thing… Especially when its a LOT OF FUCKING SNOW… Sadly my Sister and her Fiance are trapped in denver in the blizzard from hell… They sent along a bunch of pix from their apartment of the snow and it looks just crazy. As a result it looks like their flights home for christmas have been cancled which REALLY sucks… So if you’re in denver and can swing by and give her a hug or a fruitcake I’d really appreciate it… 🙂

How come

no one is posting comments to my blog? Is commenting broken? Am I not writing anything comment-worthy… Or do you all just hate me?

(just kidding – just worried that the move to wordpress broke comments for folks)…

A few things for a monday morning

Not much to report here… Just getting to work and figured i’d post quickly before I start in on real stuff… Weekend was actually pretty low key which was very nice.. Hung out with Matt and Audrey on friday night – got to read her her bedtime story and then just hung out… My parents came out saturday morning to see the state of the remodel (and gave me t he appropriate ‘WOW’ that I needed after all the pain) and then we went to the Universal Cafe for brunch which was very nice. The rest of the afternoon and evening I spent shopping and doing chores including … wait for it…. LAUNDRY… I know… boaring and lame – right? Well not so much when you haven’t had a washer and dryer in the house for 4 years now… so being able to throw a load in the wash is GREAT… I went a little nuts and ran around the house finding everything I could to wash.. I’m SUCH a dork…

Yesterday was very lazy too – more chores.. cleaning the house.. then went to Drew and Adrian’s for their yearly Yule party which was very fun…

This morning was with my trainer at the gym – OUCH… He’s great but I managed to torque my right arm last week so i’m hurting a little bit.. He’s watching it to make sure I don’t do more damage but, being the good trainer that he is, he’s not letting me just nurse it and not workout… So i’m a little sore this morning again. Suppose thats part of the process! 🙂

This week is gonna be a little nuts – I leave to meet kevin friday night for a week (YAY) so I gotta get everything done before I take off… Got shopping to do. Work to do. and packing. and i’m sure more that i’m not remembering…

Anyway – thats bout it… Gotta get back to work.. But while i’m trying to be productive, check this out… Just made me giggle so I had to share! 🙂

Some things never change

I just wandered into this post when I was looking at my server logs at what people were searching for. Its a pretty good run down of me and the scary thing is that, even though it is kinda old, nearly everything still applies.. I’m even wearing the same black and white soccer shoes. Maybe I need to mix it up a little and see what things on there I can change. 😉

Begging to feel like a home

Our house is finally starting to resemble a home rather than a construction site. Our contractor spent a fair amount of time friday removing construction shrapnel from the bathroom and putting down fresh protection on the floor so, while there is still a fair amount of work to do, it is actually presentable.. And yesterday he did the same with the kitchen as well as getting nearly everything in working order. So now we have a working washer, dryer, fridge, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and sink… All of the protective paper is off of things and it is actually pretty cool… There is still a ton to do (cooktop isn’t functioning, bar counter is still missing, electricial details, paint, and a bunch of other stuff – but its definitely cool… I even got to cook my own meal at home last night (don’t ask what – the dishes and stuff are still all packed away so it was a microwavable something or another.. but still cool)…

a few more pix are posted… :):)
