A new golden beginning. Congratulations, to the Winnick Family...And to Daisy on picking such a great new family. Now, get on up those stairs! :)
This song and video. Song is also part of the newest Apple
commercial of course, which I also love because of its use of
inner-office envelopes. I'm a big fan of those. And this song is just
happy. Makes me want to march around the house like the guy with the
But you know, that darn new year's resolution keeps haunting me.
Today was...a hard grown up day. I'm not really sure what I want to write about it yet, if anything, but let's just say it involves someone using a social security number that was not their's to use. And let's just say it involves me losing hours of my life while talking in circles and circles and circles and circles and then another circle. And let's just say that I've reached the threshold of tolerance for "please press four to speak to a representative" or "your call will be answered in approximately 11 minutes" or "I can't help you."
My coworker took this photo last night at a work event and it made me laugh when I saw it this morning. I think I was pouting about being at work late (and in tights on a 20-degree day).
In other world news, last week I asked if anyone had any guesses to
my New Year's resolution....I guess it was kind of obvious since I've
blogged every day since January 1, and had months in the last year
where I blogged once. So Amanda is the winner. What to give the girl who has everything? Amanda, you'll be getting an e-mail!
A close second was Kah-Mei who guessed that it was to move to Canada, particularly BC.
Anyone else ever played this game? While visiting Katie and Dave, we figured what better to do with the sleep-deprived new parents than play German board games.
This picture shows my victory over Ken, his brother Matt, and brother-in-law Dave (who in all fairness was feeding Oliver so his mind was on other things). Notice the blue pieces - that's me - I had the longest road - which gave me the edge and led to a narrow victory. This was, of course, after I stuck my lip out when Ken tried to block my road and accused him of doing this out of spite. Matt later accused me of "using my sexuality" to defeat Ken. Now that, my friends, made me laugh out loud.
I was a little bored in the airport last night. We got home (as evidenced by the last photo of the Chicago skyline fading dramatically into the distance) late this afternoon.
Charmer spent the longer-than-expected weekend at her buddy Camden's. We came home to rugs that had been cleaned from Charmer's over-excited bladder, and cupcakes in a tupperware container. I am convinced everyone in the world needs a neighbor and friend like Carron (yeah! she has a blog, now I can link to her every time I talk about her!) When we came home from Ireland she not only had collected our mail, but she had gone grocery shopping and stocked the fridge and pantry. I almost asked her to marry me on the spot.
So, without further ado, I bring you "O'Hare: A Study In Still Life." I was a bit bored. Oliver pictures to come hopefully tomorrow. I miss him already! Best wishes to KT and Dave.
