The flu

I've got the flu. It's probably been 10 years since I've had the flu. I've been rudely reminded of how not fun it is.

Our friend

Jody referring to Matt Mikalatos (one of our regional directors) after reading his most recent blog entry.

"Matt is a freak...
I mean, he's great...
but he's still a freak"

I laughed and then promised to post that comment on my blog.

the bachelor

We were startled last night to look up at the tv and see one of our dear friends on the show "The Bachelor". Incessent laughter and phone calling ensued.

Our friend used to work in the in thee Whitehouse! She also sang in our wedding. Now she's a lawyer in D.C. She didn't get a rose to make it past the first night, thank goodness...she's way to good for that show.

San Diego

We had a great time in San Diego this past weekend for my sisters wedding. We stayed right on the beach. Jenna did reasonably well with all the travel and late bedtimes. We got to see almost all of our family and got to meet our new Scottish family. Because you read this blog....Congratulations Paul and Megan! Have fun in Mexico!

And now we're home and it's snowing.

quote of the weekend

We've been at my sister's wedding in San Diego this weekend.

My Mom: "Guess we should go pick up your Grandma's ashes from the storage unit in El Cajon."

Sidenote -- My Grandma passed away almost 2 1/2 years ago.
