August has been a full month. It was rewarding for me to have some time between semesters to relax, see family, spend time with friends, and do nothing. Joe has enjoyed going to summer camp and we’ve taken a family trip to Washington, DC as well as a trip with me and the boys to… Read More August 2018
I didn’t grow up with an ocean view or easy access to a large body of water. Indiana is a land full of fields – corn, soybeans, winter wheat, alfalfa, and more. The fact that I never saw the ocean until after high school didn’t bother me. I always felt a little bit like Sarah… Read More Ocean-View versus Field-View
I’ve been back in Indiana for a little under a month now. I’m so glad to be near family and I’m happy that Chris loves what he’s doing. As is to be expected, I’ve definitely noticed some differences between here and Massachusetts. When we first moved to Massachusetts a little over a year ago, I… Read More Indiana vs. Massachusetts
Good morning, everyone 🙂 It is absolutely pouring here! This Saturday, Chris and I got up early and went to the South Bend Farmer’s Market. It was so great! After a little confusion as to how to get there (thanks in part to Google Maps and yours truly), we found it, parked, and headed inside.… Read More Farmer’s Market and a Movie
Hello my lovely readers 🙂 I’ve missed you! I was shocked when I finally got onto Google Reader and saw that I had 500 posts to read. Gulp. Talk about intimidating! I’ve made it through 104 of them already today, and I haven’t decided yet whether that’s productive or pathetic, but I’m leaning towards pathetic.… Read More From Massachusetts to Indiana
Just a quick post to let you know that we made it, safe and sound! It was a long drive – much longer than Google Maps or AAA TripTik said it would be, and we didn’t stop all that often. Want to know how long it took? Seventeen hours. Yup, it took us 17 hours… Read More We’re Here!
Well, after several weeks + one afternoon’s worth of work, I’m happy to report that we’ve decided on an apartment for this coming August. Yay! Before I tell you about it, let me just say this – if you’re in the apartment business, puh-leaze get yourself a website with decent pictures and hire people who… Read More Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!
I’ve notified my nurse manager of my last day of work – Saturday, July 25th! Originally, it was looking like my last day of work would be the end of June, but we were able to get an extension on our lease. The problem with the original lease end date was that none of my… Read More Decided on a Moving Date
I’m tired of moving. Since 2004, I have moved 5 times. This summer makes it 6 times. We’ll only be in our next location for 10 months before moving again, this time across the globe to New Zealand, which brings the number to 7 moves in 6 years. Ugh. I’ve been thinking things through in… Read More 6 Moves in 5 Years
(This post was inspired by The Company She Keeps) Laugh at me all you want, but some of my favorite wine comes from Indiana 🙂 It’s from this great winery – Oliver Winery – located on 35 acres in southern Bloomington. The grounds are gorgeous, they have bluegrass bands come in, a great big pond,… Read More Some of My Favorite Wine…
I have some great news! This morning, Chris was offered a post-doc fellowship at the University of Notre Dame! Woo hoo! It’s for the 2009-2010 school year, starting in August. He’ll be paid the same as any professor, but he doesn’t have to teach any classes – he can spend all of his time doing… Read More SUPER GOOD NEWS!
