Sitting at my desk and ready for work this morning. Coffee to go, check. Oatmeal to go, not so much.

I was out of clean tupperware so I needed some way to take my breakfast to work with me this morning.

It's hard to believe today is the final day of my first year in PS. I didn't take a great picture today. So I decided to put together a collage of different pictures to cap off this year. The top left is from a golf outing with our friends Carm and Jill. To the right of that are two pics that I have taken - one at the beach, one on a walk around here. Below those is one of my wedding pics - singing Friends in Low Places :-) to the left of that one is a picture from my friend's rehearsal dinner this summer - we've all been friends since junior high. The bottom left is, of course, Chesney and the bottom right is Rob and I on our honeymoon.

Thank you to all of you for sharing this year with me. It has been great getting to know all of you. I am looking forward to round 2 (round 5 for some of you!!!) LET'S DO THIS!

Wow 4 years already at an end! Can't wait for another year :D

I made my bed all pretty and flat before leaving for work. Here you can see how my cats moved around during a 5 hour span of sleeping!

there was ridiculous article about how hedgehogs can give you salmonella. One of my co-workers keeps sending it to me, so I sent her this handy "how NOT to avoid salmonella" photo. it seemed a fitting wayto end the year!

Somehow I ended up being one day off, so here's a cheat. Spent 12 hours working at the courthouse today awaiting a death penalty verdict. This is the courthouse cupola.

Despite my slacking over the past few months, I have enjoyed participating in P.S. Thank you for welcoming me into this project and sharing with me. I will continue to follow, just not as a participant. Farewell all!

I got back today to the town where I spent my first 10 years as a teacher, adult, and bachelor after college for work. I had heard that this motel had a fire, but I had no idea how bad it was - pretty much a total loss.

I had spent a LOT of time here since this is where a fellow teacher and part time girlfriend back in the day lived for a year in this town. Strange to come back and see this...

Joe's grandson ( see my 354/365) insists that we have fleas in one of the bedrooms upstairs. We don't have pets and the only dog who's been in that house is his and that was 4 months ago. (I think Tim brought the fleas with
him.) Nevertheless we are going to try these to remedy the problem.

I blew through these (no pun intended) in a day. After two boxes of tissues (and a roll of toliet paper when I temporarily ran out), two bags of cough drops, multiple doses of Airborne, echinacea, and ibuprofen, and a few borderline-traumatic experiences with Sinex, I am overjoyed to just feel normal again. Yay!

Can't see it, but there has been a rail road spur that came into our town that has been out of use for a LONG time. Came this way today, and there were at least 30 different devices(? vehicles? cars?) along here working it over...

Maybe Amtrak is coming to town???

Another birthday at JJ jump. This place is so awesome. There is one huge
structure behind us and a whole other room with crap to do. The kids always
come home dead tired. Love it!

University big wigs decided that faculty should call all admitted fall students to try to woo them to the uni. That meant all the undeclared students fell on my group--so tonight we split up a giant list and stayed
after work to make calls to potential students. Longest day ever. I worked a regular day then stayed and made phone calls to like 60 students. I have no future as a telemarketer. The upside? I do have a couple of rock stars on my team, like this one. She moved in, got comfortable, and
had fun with it. AND stayed til the bitter end and probably made twice as many calls as some other people. I'm lucky to have folks like her on my team.

I was dressed up all nice with a shirt, tie, and dress pants but it was really starting to snow and I had to walk to class do I thought it'd be best to put on my boots as I left the house following lunch. Yes, my boots are brown and I'm wearing a mostly black outfit.

The moment after taking this photo I received a text from my boss telling me to stay home because everyone was being sent home early. :-)

My van is gone :(. I'm not happy about having to get rid of her but we were
almost upside down in payments and we had about $1,500 worth of crap to do
to her. On top of that we were getting close to when the transmission
normally goes out on Odysseys. We have been keeping an eye out on any cars
that come into Tyler's work that might meet the requirements of what we
need. It just so happened that this Envoy came in on a day that another
dealership called looking for vans. He paid top dollar for my van site
unseen (looks wise it was in great condition) and as is! So we side stepped
our payments and got an amazingly killer deal on this truck. Still seats 7
and has the tow package we want. Gas will suck but at least we wont be in
the hole come time to sell it!

I'm not the type to buy these crazy expensive toothbrushes for the kids but
while I have been down with a cold they pretty much let me lay on the couch
all weekend letting me recover and were amazing. So today they both got
their new "Design your own Spinbrush". needless to say..... they LOVED
