Disney World Photos

We had an amazing visit to DisneyWorld in November (I know, it’s more than a little late to post about it).  We celebrated my nephew Dylan’s third birthday, spent time with my family, and just enjoyed being together.  It was time well spent and not quite as exhausting as Disney trips can often be.  We...

Michigan Trip

I have so much I want to blog about this trip, but I’m so tired that I just don’t have the energy.  For now, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves and let you see just how much FUN Riley had.  I promise to blog about it when I’m not quite so slammed with work...

The Most Stressful Part of Vacation…

The most stressful part of vacation is the last few work days before you leave the office. Everything piles up as you desperately try to clear out the inbox, finish items on the to-do list or in the queue, and prepare people to cover for you while you leave, even though no one in the...
Delta Update

Delta Update

I heard back from Delta (finally).  They responded to my letter (and actually responded because it addressed each paragraph).  My dad’s complaint yielded him a $75 credit for himself and for Andy and for me.  My inquiry yielded us 15,000 frequent flyer miles each, along with a 1,000 point bonus because of the broken plane...

They needed to know on how many levels they failed (in an EPIC way), so this was the letter I penned expressing my displeasure with their policies and their customer service. To...

Coping

The hardest part for me from losing my mom has always been at the end of a long day.  Initially it was the grief which became overwhelming as I was trying to fall asleep, alone with my thoughts.  Lately though, as I’ve had time to process the news, it always comes at the end of...

Graduation

I’m not even going to go into the trauma that was traveling to graduation.  Misplaced luggage, missing carseats, 5 canceled flights, almost 4 hours on the tarmac, broken planes, nasty customer service agents, make believe thunderstorms.  Anything Delta could have done to fail, it did.  In an epic way.  What little time we did have...

California Trip Photos

We had the most wonderful trip to visit my family for my birthday and I’m sad I’m only now able to blog about it.  We spent five days in southern California, visiting family, friends, the ocean, and some of my favorite places growing up.  There was so much I wanted to accomplish and we actually...

Savannah

We ventured down to Savannah for one of Andy’s interviews and wandered the parks, streets, and historic locations downtown.  It’s a really beautiful city which we would welcome the opportunity to visit again.
