Day 1

First day of our travels! This morning we woke up early, said goodbye to our kitties, Sammie, Darcy and Al and were on our way. We made it to Carlisle, PA and tomorrow we will visit B's cousin in Tenn. Then onto Nashville and Memphis, Yee-haw!

No pics to post for our first day of travels. Hopefully, some tomorrow.

Friday Daybook

Outside my window...Hollywood is shooting a movie. Car crashes, machine gun fire, screeching tires....awesome!
I am thankful for...a sister who understands me and supports me - Hi Mey!
From the kitchen...we are taking the last of our refrigerator items to D's house tonight.
I am favorite brown striped pants from Christine and Tony and my favorite white jacket from my friend Ann Taylor, Loft.
I am reading...The Favored Child by Philippa Gregory.
I am hoping...for an excellent last day of work!
I am creating...adventures, happiness, sadness, unexpectedness, joyfulness and a bundle of nerves.
I am praying...for health.
Around the house...we are still finding time to love each other.
One of my favorite hope.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Goodbye BBQ tonight, coffee and bagels with a good friend on Saturday morning, wedding reception Saturday evening, packing, Sunday afternoon with B's parents, more packing.
A "picture" thought I’m sharing...My new neighborhood??
Notice the Holiday wreath and the lack of snow!

Journal of [] me, unemployed in 6 hours...and lovin' it!

Borrowed Daybook

I love the simple idea of a daybook. Here is a borrowed version from Psychgirl.

Outside my downtown Albany covered in a hazy fog this morning.

I am thankful for...the smiles I get each day from my wife.

From the kitchen...into my lunchbag this morning I put vegetarian chili, yogurt with strawberries, an apple, a bag of cheese and carrots.

I am tennies still, haven't changed into my office appropriate heels yet.

I am reading...Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides.

I am hoping...for a stress-free moving day.

I am creating...a web of hopes and desires for our new life in San Diego.

I am praying...for a healthy baby boy for Amy and Denis.

Around the will find boxes, lots and lots of boxes. Some are packed and taped, some are half full, some are empty, some are disassembled still, and some will inevitably have a black cat jumping in and out all evening long.

One of my favorite a hug in the morning from my love.

A few plans for the rest of the week...packing, of course, but that is boring. Tomorrow my office is taking me out for a goodbye luncheon and then the spectacular sisters slumber party begins at our house! B's sisters are bringing their blow up mattresses, their alcohol and food appetites, their giggles, and their hugs over to our furniture free house for a night of reliving the fun of a group of 12 year old girls.

A "picture" thought I’m sharing...Wish I was sunning at the lake today. Or, just sunning anywhere, where is the sun! The clouds are rolling in today...
