reentry

We’re back from Paris and wow, what an adventure, learning experience, stress-filled, magical, amazing, and frustrating time it was. I definitely consider myself a more seasoned traveler after this trip! I’ll post more about it all later including some of my favorite photos. My love for the city remains firmly intact and even deeper than before. As this was our second trip there, the newness … Continue reading reentry

happiness is…

I’ve been charged to pen a post about something that makes me happy. I could have chosen many things, family-friends-kiddo-books-fresh flowers-chocolate…but honestly, the first thing that came to mind was traveling. A lot. Everywhere. New places new people new everything. Favorite destination #1? the Rick Steves tour we took of Europe in 2006. Several countries, never staying in the same one over two days. It was a whirlwind. And … Continue reading happiness is…

so here’s the thing

Eh, I have no idea what “the thing” is. I just randomly typed that in the title box. I think I might possibly suffocate in this office but I’m not opening my door to get air for fear of having to actually interact with people on my lunch hour.  ‘Cause that would just be unnecessary and annoying. And passing out from heat stroke is much more preferable than … Continue reading so here’s the thing

what is up

Wow, it’s Monday. And I’m at work. Boooooo. Usually Monday’s are my day off but I decided to be generous and offer to take Friday off instead since there is mass amounts of extremely important, world-changing, crime fighting, disease curing work to be done at The Man’s. Or maybe just some lame spreadsheets. But it’s lunchtime and I’m, er, well, typing this post. So there … Continue reading what is up

wow i’m boring

I suppose I am back in the routine after being on vacation.  Woohoo.  I’ve successfully thrown flaming sacks of dog poo (readily available to me) at anyone making a comment in any way resembling “I thought you went to the beach, so where’s your tan?”.  I had gazillion emails to catch up on at the 9 to 5 and I suppose I’m back into the swing of things in … Continue reading wow i’m boring

back into it

We had a fabulous time away in sunny Florida as you could probably tell.  The only bad thing about vacations is that annoying coming back home part.  The build up and planning for vacations are fun, the actual time away is even better, but the return home and descent back into real life can be disappointing for me.   Not that I have this horrid awful everyday life or anything … Continue reading back into it

it’s a bird…

Wow.  Just wow.  We went to Pensacola Naval Air Station this morning to watch the Blue Angels practice.  It was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.  I’ve never been to an air show before and it was a bit scary, a tad loud and a LOT spectacular!   Meet my new friend, pilot of the #3 plane, Major Clint Harris. After watching the practice, we … Continue reading it’s a bird…

out of touch

Its funny how disconnected you can feel when you go away for a while.  And, ironically, I am probably about as in touch as it gets since I have access to the computer and cell phone.  But even with those communication devices I’m only using them to keep in contact with a few people and am not checking the Nashville news, certainly not checking work email … Continue reading out of touch

So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, good night

I was off work today but it wasn’t much of a vacation day.  I cleaned, took the Elephant to the shop only to bring it right back home, did laundry, packed and am now sitting in bed rockin’ a killer spray tan.  That last item is probably worth a post of its own at some point.  Anywho, this may or may not be my last post for several days so until … Continue reading So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, good night
