I Need A Drink!!!!

I'm simply a tingle over the thought of my readers taking a look at the blog and seeing that I've posted twice (or more) since they last looked!

Work is so very busy these days that I'm counting down the time until I can leave here, go home and have a drink! Yeesh. 

Other than that, nothing new has happened since yesterday, just trying to keep my promise of posting more frequently. Oh - and I'm TOTALLY addicted to Vine these days. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's an app that let's you create 6 second videos. It's set up similar to Twitter, etc. where you follow people or get followed, and there are some FUNNY people out there. If you feel like you need one more distraction in your life, check it out. :-)

Have a great day!!!

I'm Commited

I've been having an internal battle about whether or not to get rid of my blog all together or try to get back on track and start posting again. 
I've decided to keep the old gal around for a while longer, with a new plan in place. 
Instead of checking the same (of many) social media 'apps' 50 times a day, I will commit to visiting this app and make a blog entry. 
I'm still pretty fascinating, and I know you're all intrigued by every move that I make, so it's only fair. ;-)

In other news, all is well with me. Work is good, Jim, Zachary, and the beloved Scooter are great and we're having a delightful summer. 
I hope the same goes for all of you. :-)

Here's a recent picture of Zachary and I, after a swim in the pool, which he LOVES. 

Scooter loves the pool as well, and has been in it FAR more than I have this summer. Typical. 

Here's a picture of Z and one of the mascots of the Paw Sox (the farm team for the Red Sox). You get an idea of how big he's gotten recently. He's still small for his age (especially his weight), but he's pretty tall.

Waiting and waiting.....

As I sit here at work waiting for an export to complete, I figured I'd drop by to say hello. Of course, Thats assuming that people are still reading and remember that I exist. Although, truth be told, I can't blame them if they forgot about me, it's been a while since I blogged with any kind of consistency.

So, since I last wrote, some CRAZY shit has gone down in the city of Boston.
I'm happy to report that all my friends who were in and around the affected part of the city on Monday are safe and sound.
As it is with any other tragic event, you can't help but feel a little (or a lot) uneasy about what happened and what it means for your future. That's an area where I used to walk just about every day back when I was working in the city, so to have something so horrible occur someplace so familiar to me is quite frightening.

Let's just hope that they find whoever did this, and fast!!!

There's an app for that!

So, it looks like the Blogger app just
might be the thing that saves my blog.
It's really quite easy to knock out a quick blog post on my phone, especially if I'm at work and can manage it.
It's MUCH more discreet than bringing it up on my computer.

That being said, here's a quick update for y'all. Jim just finished redoing our dining room!!! It was a matter of taking down the wallpaper, priming and reprinting. None if which I have any talent/patience for.
He managed to do it in about a week and a half, all while still being a stay-at-home dad! No idea how he managed, but he did!!
Here are some before and after pics:

Axe, and you shall receive.....

Just a couple of new pictures.
It's the least I could do. :-)

Is this thing on???

I am HORRIFIED that I haven't posted once in 2013.
I am happy to see that the blog is still out here.
I do keep in touch (aka stalk) with some/most of my 'regulars' via Facebook, but I miss the days of yore, when I was blogging daily.
All is well.
I've been at my job for just about 10 months and still really like it.
Jim is great.
Zachary is awesome (and he's TWO!!!).
Scooter is still the spoiled brat that he's always been (but the ruler of the roost).
I grew my beard back.  (I know that some of you were worried).
We're actually going on a family vacation at the end of the month to D.C. (I've never been, if you can believe that) so any 'must sees' are welcome....rememebering that we're 'with child'  :-)

I hope you're all doing well and haven't written me off....I'm still kicking around and think of you often.

Way overdue...

"How are things in Glocca Morra???"

What?!?!  You act like it's been two months since I've updated my blog.....yeesh.

OK - guilty as charged.  I realize that it's been a long time, but believe me - while I'm not updating as often (or at all) I think about you all quite often, and know that you're out here in the blogosphere waiting and waiting for an update.  :-)

So, let's see......the show I was in (The Drowsy Chaperone) is over and done with, and was a LOT of fun.  We played to sold out houses and the show was very well received.  OK, the theatre sits 75, but STILL....that doesn't necessarily guarantee a sell out! 
That being said, it was great to be back on stage again after so long and I'm looking forward to my next stage adventure.  Speaking of, Jim is actually in rehearsals right now for a play at the very same theatre, which goes up in February.  Such a talented family we are.

Other than that, nothing new is going on.  Work is as busy as ever, and I'm still enjoying it. 
I feel badly for my former co-workers who are unfortunately still dealing with the unstable work environment I was so happy to escape from.  Rumors of layoffs are still flying over there and with the upcoming holidays, people are STRESSED.

In addition to being in rehearsals for his own show, Jim is directing a show (which opens in 2 weeks), still taking care of Zachary all day long, and is currently working part time (seasonal help) at the local Crate & Barrel.  Needless to say, he's a tad busy.  Hopefully we'll manage to have some extra cash, which we so desperately need, and we won't spend it all on Crate and Barrel 'stuff'.  It will be difficult I'm sure, as we both love that store, but we can do it!

OK - I'm interrupting my normally scheduled blog post to tell you that as I was writing this entry, I received a Facebook message from the ever delightful (and fellow blogger) Blobby, inquiring as to whether or not I ever planned to update my blog.  Isn't that CRAZY?!??  Seriously....what the hell are the odds???
Obviously, he's spying on me.  Anyway....I thought you should all know that just happened.

So - it's Friday afternoon and I should be doing one of the 5,000 things I need to do, but I decided to update my blog and spread a lil' love around the Internets.

I hope you're all well, and you're having a super fun holiday season (if that's your 'thing')


Here's a picture of this year's Halloween costumes.
Yes, Scooter was a skeleton's his favorite. 
As you can clearly see.
