well, two days ago we bought our tickets for our 'formal' vacation which we haven't been on in almost two years thanks to everyone up and having babies. we decided to go to Los Angeles!! i've only been as far west as chicago so this'll be all new for me (we may even squeeze in las vegas). and with the looming prospect of moving there, we figured we might want to see it first. and the best part is it's only costing us a few hundred dollars, since my husband cashed in some frequent flyer miles and we'll be mooching off friends instead of spending on hotels. we might just spring for a really cool rental car, like a convertible mustang or something. we leave the 17th of next month. just in time for j to turn 30! happy birthday (and anniversary) to us!
oh yeah, and we're heading to CT this weekend. but not until j plays softball and we go see X-Men III with some people.
(*sorry about the flickr photo post. supposedly they're working to fix the glitch, but i might have to relink. i'm just too lazy to right now.)

this is me. i'm an artist. i'm a dreamer. i buy shoes that don't fit right just because they're on sale. i make gifts. i love the ocean. i'm stubborn and pig-headed. i'm creative. i love ham sandwiches. i got sick from golden grahams once. i have a bad memory (except for the golden grahams thing). and that's why i take photos. my forgetfullness turned into my most expensive and loved hobby. i am a photographer. and i am happy.
should i go cookout style or maybe poker tournament style. i would like to have a few things going on at the same time so people don't get bored. and i can't even get started thinking about a gift. what to buy the man who always buys himself whatever he wants even if it's two days before christmas. he's impossible to surprise too....
this is a huge scary turning point in our lives, and i just want something that will kind of mask that anxiety for about 6 or 8 hours.

"I can't be bothered with anything these days, but such is life. I don't care. So it goes. More or less nothing seems worth thinking about. I've just been hanging out waiting for something to happen, but that's how it is."
i wonder if he's selling anti-depressants?

this is my husband's handy work. it happened on the way to pick up the car. to drive to the airport. to catch our flight. to come home. anyway, his mother and i laughed when he hit the pothole and gave him grief for five minutes about not paying attention to the road (he's too preoccupied with water sensor windshield wipers).
anyway, a few minutes later the car was wobbly and we were worried. we happened to be next to a dinky little mechanics garage so we pulled in. an hour later the problem was solved and we were on our way. i learned two things that day: never drive on a flat, and in virginia, a tire is a tar.

the bottom line is, in the next few weeks i plan to cut back cut back cut back. we're even thinking about losing digital cable! what, no dvr?!? incredulously, yes. which means no more grey's after this season. i'll have to start waiting for seasons on dvd and stop reading some of your blogs on mondays. it makes me sad, but dude, it's like 50 bucks a month.

have finally had car oil changed since i have terrible habit of forgetting things like that and letting engines seize. v. good. although in the process (of waiting for car) have managed to purchase pair of black linen pants, because one can never have too much black, especially in the summer. v. bad.
