hello again...

Well, it's been forever, I know. Since I last posted I started teaching first grade at Logos (which I love), moved into a new apartment (which I love), and gained a nephew (whom I love). Those are just a few of the big things that have happened so far. Of course more has happened, but for now, just a brief update and hopefully I will get better about posting.

Summertime Poem

Walking Across The Atlantic

I wait for the holiday crowd to clear the beach
before stepping onto the first wave.

Soon I am walking across the Atlantic
thinking about Spain,
checking for whales, waterspouts.
I feel the water holding up my shifting weight.
Tonight I will sleep on its rocking surface.

But for now I try to imagine what
this must look like to the fish below,
the bottoms of my feet appearing, disappearing.

Sometimes it's just crazy...

crafts and snacks at the same time...probably not the best idea.

Guess who turned 21!!!

JILLZO! Christy and I took her out for her first drink!

An Interesting Waste of Time

Well, my roommates and I have been doing a lot of sporcling(or however you spell that). It's a site that gives you random quizzes of everything you can think of...very educational - at least that's what I tell myself when I've wasted lots of time on it. Anyways - you should check it out... Be prepared to get stuck.

Here Comes Christmas

Well, now that Brian is married and has tons of children (haha...just two actually) we have started drawing names for Christmas. This year we drew two names each, plus we all get gifts for mum and pop. This year I got Brian and Luke. Brian was pretty easy - but I won't tell you what I got him in case he reads this. Luke however is a whole different story. His list is very specific and also - strange. For example he asked for a Bugatti Veyron(very nice, very expensive, and very impractical sports car) and t-shirts - but not just any t-shirts of course but "t-shirts that don't flare out after going through the wash and make me look slim and trim and also don't get all stiff and wrinkled at the edges." So, I laughed out loud when I read his list and still have not gotten him anything. Not cuz I don't want to, but because his specificity has challenged me to surprise him, but I haven't thought of something clever enough to do it with yet. Anyways, Christmas is coming!
