Life in the Last Six or So Months

Life in the Last Six or So Months

Exhausting, chaotic, busy, joyful, stressful, and every other emotion you could possibly imagine has characterized the last half year or so of our lives around here.  I haven’t blogged much, mostly because I haven’t felt like it.  It seems like there isn’t a lot to say these days, though there obviously is.  Normal, everyday life...
2011 - Thank God It's Over

2011 – Thank God It’s Over

2011 was rough.  It was a very stressful, loss-filled year and we aren’t sorry to have seen the end of it.  Here is our 2011 – a year in review. Let’s Start with the High Points: Watching Riley grow from 10/11 months until 22/23 months. In that time he learned to walk, run, climb, begin...
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...

My Letter to Delta

Here is the letter I recently sent Delta regarding the absolute NIGHTMARE we had getting to and from New York for Andy’s graduation. 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...

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...

Chateau Elan

Andy and I took our last romantic vacation together (for what will be a long, long time I’m sure) a few weeks ago.  It wasn’t exactly a vacation though, as we only stayed away one night and only went about 40 minutes away, but it was still an enjoyable escape.  We went to Chateau Elan,...

My Best Friend’s Wedding

Over the weekend, I flew out to Knoxville to be an attendant in my best friend’s wedding.  Even though we just moved to Maryland and even though I had to go alone and even though I haven’t exactly been feeling up to travel, I was so excited to go visit Erin and be there for...

The First Washington, D.C. Pictures

After being here nearly a week, we finally were able to escape our (very nice) apartment to see some of Washington.  Since we’re only about a 25-30 minute metro ride from places like the Mall, the White House, and many other important  sights, we really want to make the most of our time here.  Since...

Prague: Czechin’ it Out

I didn’t know how to condense the next part, so I’ll just break it up by days and if the post gets too long (which it totally will), you can stop on a given day and come back and read it later.  I know it’s an overwhelming amount of text, but I’d never been to...

Bonjour Paris!

We returned from Europe only a few days ago and we have been working at breakneck pace to try to get back into the normal schedule of everyday life.  After six loads of laundry, some cleaning, picking the cats up, and going back to work immediately upon returning, we’re finally ready to reflect upon our...

The Last Several Days

We’ve had a busy and eventful (though not always exciting) last ten days or so, but I’ve been completely devoid of time to update.  So here’s a rough outline of what’s been going on. Vegas trip – I was in Vegas for about five days, but it was probably the least exciting Vegas trip you...
