Here’s a small sampling of our desert adventure today.  Thanks to Clyde and Dathan for a super fun day!

The rest are here

parked at the waterfall - yes, there are waterfalls in the desert!

Everyone, please keep dear Rae Rae in your prayers today

November 28, 2008

Today is Black Friday and please wish her safety and sanity on this day, the busiest of the retail year.  We love her way too much to lose her to a deal seeking, holiday spirit forgetting, Christmas shopping lunatic.




November 26, 2008

We arrived safe and sound and only slightly worse for the wear.  From 11p until 9a I drove through sheeting rain.  I have a blister on my palm as a battle scar from my death grip on the steering wheel.  Oh, and apparently mud flaps on semi trucks are so passe… they prefer to blind you with water jetting out from under their many tires.  Gah.

I’ll post something more interesting tomorrow – when it stops raining because, you know, it never rains at Alamo 😛


Preaching to the choir

November 25, 2008

Now this is the message everyone should hear at their local Forgiveness of Sins Store parish.

And to the one member of this peanut gallery who will be dying to comment on this, two words:  lesson learned.  Yeah, it would have been handy if it had sunk in earlier but I wasn’t going to church then 😛


On the road – well, working in it…

November 25, 2008

I’m running around trying to get stuff done at work and home today so we can take off for the desert tonight.  I’ll post from Mom’s house – YAY!


May all of you who are travelling this week/end have a safe journey and remember to BE THANKFUL for all that is good in your life.



Countdown to Chr… NOPE… it’s not even Thanksgiving yet!

November 24, 2008

My office building is right next door to Embarcadero Center, and I think they forgot that we haven’t yet had Thanksgiving!  I understand that it takes a lot of time to put up the decorations but, c’mon… 


Two vital events must happen before one can acknowledge the impending Yule time… Thanksgiving, and the gateway to Christmas, my birthday! 😀


Sex on a swivel

November 24, 2008

My taste seems to be veering back to Mid-Century Modern… check out this out on Lush Pad.  This chair is sexier that I could ever hope to be…
