My favorite moment of the day: We planned to take the pups for a walk since it was sunny and 72 degrees. When we finally stepped outside the wind was howling and it looked like it might rain, but Baxter and Jack were so excited we couldn't take them back in. And inevitably about 10 minutes into our walk we started to get pelted by rain and hail. We were like is this seriously happening? There was nothing left to do but run. It was a great sight all four of us dodging precipitation, running, and laughing. I wish I had a camera to capture the moment. It was classic. Especially about halfway home when you could tell how pissed Baxter was because he was losing endurance and the little tubbo was beginning to look more like he was getting dragged along rather than winning the race to cover.

Daylight Savings: literally speaking

Friday, March 13, 2009

I wish I could round up as much daylight as possible and save it for next winter. It is so depressing to wake up and go to work before the sun comes up and drive home in pitch black. I have been working late nights too giving me absolutely no chance of catching some vitamin D. My poor mexi skin has turned to pale vampire skin. I really love sun and I miss its rays!

The DC area has some wacky weather. A few weeks ago we had the 'Virginia Blizzard' then this past weekend it was beautiful, sunny, and in the 70's. Guess where I got to spend it?!? Bed. I caught some inexplicable, crazy stomach bug (I blame Virginia). Of course my body would wait for the weekend to get sick and during the most perfect one nonetheless! I was hurtin' and I literally could not stand up straight for three days because I was in so much pain.

Whine, whine, whine....Obviously I need a vacation!
