I’ve made a new friend at work, although it’s a like-hate relationship. I like it because it’s just so cool looking….but also just a little creepy. His home is right by the door where I walk in for work, he’s been here for about a week or so. Anyway, random comment for […]

I finally did it - I signed up for a pottery class!! I filled out the form, wrote my check, and sent it in. I have dreams of this class sparking a life-long hobby (like father, like daughter), so we’ll see. Many of you know that my dad throws pots and so […]

Chris and I are in the process of moving me to my sister and Michelle’s apartment. It’s going well, though yesterday as I was packing I was overwhelmed by how much stuff I have. I managed to weed out some things and take them to Goodwill, but I still have quite a bit […]

Second home

We spent another weekend in KC visiting friends and family and had a really good time as we do everytime we visit. It gets a little hectic running around trying to see everyone, but we still love it. Chris and I have talked several times about someday moving to KC. We already […]

…you’ve had a particularly lazy day at work and you get up to do some work and then your boss walks in! I’ve had too many days of the opposite where I’ve been busily working in the lab, sit down to take a short break and type an email, and then my boss walks […]
