I forgot the socks.

December 17, 2008


I had some very nice moments* on my birthday – the highlight was a hilarious pair of socks that Kate got me….. that I left at school.  They said “Reduce, Reuse, Regift”.  PERFECT for me!  I’m so sorry I forgot them. So, you have to look at a thermos again.  I’m in the habit of […]

I am such a sheep.

Right on schedule

April 5, 2007


Yes, we are both out of school tomorrow!  The weekend was fraught with promise!  Would we have a zany adventure where we went to the airport with just a backpack of clean clothes and pick a random destination?  Would we go on a crazy window-shopping spree?  Or maybe just drive around Nebraska and take pictures of […]
