Going Private

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Hey guys!

I don't know if anyone still reads this, but I'll be taking this blog private in a few days.  If you do still read and want to be kept in the loop with an occasional update, let me know and I'll add you to my blog list so you can still access it.  Just leave a comment on this post with your email address.   Thanks!

It seems like this summer has just flown by...I can hardly believe that it's only 3 weeks until I leave for England.  There's so much to do before then, and I would be lying if I said I weren't getting a little bit stressed out by it.  Not about the move itself, but rather the relatively minor worry that I won't be able to find affordable storage for all of my stuff while I'm there.  I know, that should be the least of my worries, right?

I've been focusing on the really important stuff, though.  That's really why I haven't written much.  I've been really seizing the day, all day, every day.  I've been traveling to visit many of my friends while I'm still on this side of the Atlantic (for details on my New York trip, see here) and I've been making the most of every opportunity.  Going on spontaneous road trips to Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Western Massachusetts, and NYC, just because I can.  Signing up for a flying lesson.  Swimming in the ocean.  Piercing my nose (say WHAT?  Yes, really).  Launching a cooking blog.  Performing in Canada with my choir.  Sewing a dress.  And oh, so much more.

These past few months have been amazing.  So, so, so wonderful.  Despite all the stress from the move, I am oh, so happy.  And that is the way that it should be.

Wow, really?

I can't believe that it's been 3 months since I last posted.  Time really flies.  I'll try and update more soon, but for now I just wanted to pop in and say hi.

Pond hopping

Thursday, April 7, 2011

I can't quite believe that this day has come, but...

I just bought a one-way ticket to England.  As in, I am moving to a DIFFERENT COUNTRY.  For at least 2 years.  (Insert minor freakout here)  Come September, I'll be hopping the pond and moving to England for grad school.

I'm feeling a lot of excitement mixed with a pinch of nervousness...and joy...and terror...and elation...and, well, you get the point.

Oh, hi...

Sorry, sorry, it's been just about forever since I updated this blog.  Life has been SO busy, that I haven't had enough time for everything - what with doing several huge projects for work, training for the Walk for Hunger, and having unexpected surgery, things have been a little hectic.

All of my inclination to write vanished...I dove headfirst into work, coming up only to eat and breathe.  I had a very large project that I was working on for a work-related class that was consuming all of my free time.  Several thousand words later, I'm finally done with that and ready to start recreational writing (aka blogging) again!

Y'all, I seriously need to invest in some new furniture...

All my blogging is done from my temperamental laptop which, because it's fussy, can't be moved from the desk it's sitting on.  Which would be less of a problem if the desk and chair set were a little more comfortable and/or had a few more nuts and bolts!

A couple of days ago, I was answering emails at my desk.  Every now and then, the back of my desk chair starts to work its way loose (it's not held together by screws or glue) - the wooden pegs holding chair back to chair body succumb to the pressure exerted by my back and become increasingly detached.  The process usually takes a couple of days, so I've always managed to catch it and pound the pieces back together with a hammer.

Anyway, as I was typing merrily away on my computer, I suddenly felt something give....and before you can say "blarglesnurgs"* I found myself on the floor staring at a whooooole lot of pieces of desk chair.

I'm thinking it's definitely time to update my desk set and buy something that is a) not in pieces and b) super cute.

*What?  It's totally a word.

Update on iPad giveaway

Friday, February 25, 2011

Oops, forgot to mention in my last post - the giveaway ends at midnight tonight!

Here's a little bit more in the way of details about the fundraiser:
The Dickinson family is adopting sweet little Masha, an orphan in Eastern Europe who happens to have Down Syndrome.  The Dickinsons are no strangers to international adoption, having previously adopted Macey and Marcus from Ukraine.  International adoption is an expensive undertaking, and so this iPad fundraiser generously sponsored by the Cornish family will help raise money to cover the Dickinson family's airfare and other associated costs.  The chip-in for the fundraiser ends at midnight tonight, so hurry on over and enter the giveaway before it's too late!
