Party Update

Apparently houses shrink in the sun and boxes procreate when you're not looking (what are those naughty boxes doing on my new carpet!?). I say this because after a few weeks in our new house during an intense heat wave, it's gotten smaller than I remember, and there are still moving boxes everywhere. Note to all my friends with small children: do not under any circumstances considering moving if it will take you less than 24 hrs to unpack. Rugrats view all those boxes as toy boxes full of surprises that mommy and daddy brought home just for them, and some are even still gift wrapped as a challenge. Don't worry! They WILL get the taped ones open, and they WILL learn how to climb that ladder sitting in the corner so that one day they can give mommy a heart attack when she turns a corner to find herself eye-to-eye with a child who is terribly pleased with the view they've discovered (seriously, she was laughing so hard she nearly fell off). But to actually get to the point of this post, we haven't unpacked our clothes so we can stop wearing the same things repeatedly, let alone worked on putting the house together so we can show it off at a party. Thus, I think it is going to be pushed back to August, probably on a Friday night. So let me know if there are any major conflicts for you, and if you rate high enough on the give-a-hoot scale we'll see what can be done ;P jk

Happy Birthday Mom!

Today was my mom's 30th Birthday (ummm, yeah that sounds about right :) so we took her out to the Tobacco Co. Mom informed me after I'd made the reservations that this was the restaurant where she told my dad that she was expecting me. I can't decide if its kinda weird or cool, but either way I guess I can say that I've been there before. It was my Nana's idea to go out for lunch, but she couldn't be there, so we left a chair empty for her...the wait staff looked at me awful funny when I put out the single name card. But hey, what do you expect from a crazy redhead? (click picture to enlarge)

Jamie's Summer Course

(click to enlarge)

I have to take a summer course, how awesome is this! (it's really Bioterrorism and Public Health, but this is what THEY are calling it)'s actually extremely interesting but depressing at the same time. They keep telling us how unprepared Virginia is for a true crisis event/natural disaster. The message so far is pretty much that we should all live in remote cabins with food stores, and not count on help from anyone. What a way to inspire potential employees!
