Back at 31



When you don't write for a long time it is hard to decide what to write about. That's why I'm not good at writing in journals. I could never write about the present because I'd always be filling in the stuff about the past.

Jed and I got home from Boston this week but I didn't tell you I was gone because I didn't want you to rob my house and steal my family. Well, isn't it sort of scary how people update where they are all the time, all the while they've left their valuables at home? My most valuables stayed here with the best of the best sitters, and we left. We love those little people--but my goodness, have you ever taken a trip without your kids? There was this amazing freedom when we realized we could actually go places whenever we wanted.

"We should see Inception sometime"

"Yeah, that sounds fun."

"Wait--we should see Inception! Tonight!"

And the movie was totally rad (it's okay--you can use that word too! It's cool again!). And I learned all of the history I couldn't remember from 5th grade and swam in Walden Pond--yeah--it's more like a small lake! I saw at least 57 different Dunkin Donuts shops, I shopped at the Brimfield antique show, went to a Red Sox game, and instead of eating PB &Js I ate giant sausages with peppers and onion (stop scrolling up to the picture to see the weight I put on). It's a pretty cool world out there in the East.


And I have some new thoughts about air travelers--but that deserves a blog of its own.

And if I have to update more of the past in this blog tonight, I'll never write again, just like my journals of yesteryear. Besides, it's my birthday (but you knew that!) and I'm going to have some Pepsi upstairs. C-U soon sweet doggies.

Thanks for the stroll down memory lane, it sounds like you had a great trip! It's probably good that you didn't tell us you were leaving… I'd love to have a Parley of my very own--of course, any kid who loves Superman is awesome in my book.

Wasn't that movie totally awesome? BTW totally awesome is in as well, isn't that gnarly and radical?

Sometimes I kill me!

Happy Birthday, Jayne!!!!

Glad you had fun in Boston! I will be there August 14th-17th for work. You know, I keep asking them to send me west and they send me to Boston. BOSTON!! Oh well. I am sure I will enjoy it while I am there. Hope you had a a great birthday!

what a fun b-day trip! It's probably smart of you not to tell us you were going out of town especially after seeing your home tour! We'd all be there trying to pull your entire house off it's foundation!

Zach and Codi said...

You went to a Red Sox game?!.... I'm trying really really hard not to hate you right now...

Janssen said...

Sounds like a terrific time. So glad you had fun here!

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

Yeah, what is up with all the Dunkin Donuts on the East Coast??

So weird.

Happy Birthday!

Kim said...

The East Coast likes donuts (ok anything fried!!). And ice cream. But we are missing one thing: SONIC. I am itching to try one of those cherry limeades.

I am glad you had a good time. We had some similar experiences, but I didn't even think of swimming in Walden pond. I was amazed at the number of Dunkin Donuts. Do they eat donuts all the time?

hannah said...

Sounds like a blast! Where did your lovely bathing suit come from?
