rude awakening

It's quite a rude awakening when a kid blasts into your room at 6:00 a.m. to let you know that the smoke alarm is about to go off at any second.

The other night I was making a list of sofas that I was comparing, to go in the fish room. My list had such weird names as paradox cocoa, improv mocha and cindy crawford rochester. I stepped into the bathroom for a few minutes to get ready for bed, only to notice when I came out that my list had mysteriously grown. Now on the list are also palindrome skeezy and delightful phart panz?!? I had such a giggle attack that I couldn't go to sleep. Thank God I married someone with the same sense of humor that plagues me.

do you canoe?

What a nice day back to work after my little vacation... we went on a retreat as a nice cap on the end of a stressful recruiting year. We spent the morning playing silly games which were, well, silly... but fun! And then after lunch, we went on a canoe trip. I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did. I paddled with Katie, whom I've never gotten to know very well. But we really had a nice time, and I think we have more in common than I originally believed. What a fun day, but now my shoulders hurt!!! Please someone give me a pill.

20th year reunion!

Well, I survived. My 20th high school reunion was this past Saturday. I was nervous. I was stressed. (I planned the event.) And it turned out great, despite myself. I think everyone had a good time. It was great to see everyone again, and I must say, most of my classmates have aged quite well. I'll post some pictures here soon.

I'm sore. Stevie and I went adventurin yesterday in the woods and then I spent a good hour stooped over a bed of weeds. I think I'm just getting too old. Stevie was a good sport, though... especially when he ended up in the creek and almost lost a shoe. I gotta say, I can't wait until we move to the new neighborhood and have all that fun in our back yard. Here's the first finished house in the area... I could definitely live here!
