Again with the Slow Blogging . . .

My apologies again for taking so long to check in here. I can't believe it's been more than a week since I last posted! The normal hectic pace of life has stepped up a notch around here and despite my best efforts, I simply haven't had the time.

We've had some bad family news, as well. My 84-year old grandfather is currently in the hospital and diagnosed with congestive heart failure and liver cancer. They're doing a lot of testing now, so we're not sure of the prognosis, but he's resting (reasonably) comfortably at the moment. Your thoughts (and prayers, if you're so inclined) would be most welcome!

The Softer Side of Barack

So I'm friends with the President on Facebook. Natch.

His staff photographer posted a photo album the other day chronicling the Obamas' first year in the White House. I found some that made me giggle, some that made me belly laugh, and some that made me say "awww." Below are some of those images.

If you want to read about the details of each one, be sure to click through to the photo album for the photographer's own captions.

A Few News Items

(in no particular order)
  1. I suck at blogging, evidently. Just twice so far in April - blagh.
  2. We renewed our lease. Neither one of us has ever done that before - exciting!
  3. I started a new job. Two days of it in the books - good so far.
  4. We're getting married in 71 days! Yikes.

Bachelorette Evening

Justin's away in Vermont this week for a military training, which kinda sucks. He'll be back in Portsmouth on Sunday, though, so that's good.

In the meantime, thought I'd share what I do when he's not at home:

Chicken pot pie, brussel sprouts, and beer

And the Red Sox

Oh, wait. I guess it's not that different than what I do when he's home! ;)

On My Mind

All that's on my mind at present, but written so much better than I could have done: The Fear Fetish.
