I Need Money

Not blogging in a while makes me realize how much stuff I need to do with the blog. I’ve been meaning to update for a few months, and in that time I’ve probably touched two lines of code. Right now I’m thinking, “where’s my darn ‘preview’ button?”

I went to Massachusetts over Thanksgiving. The drive to and from sucked. I meant to stay three nights but ended up being more like seven. The weird thing is that I want to go back! I’m trying to get Rob to send out his resume to other places than Minneapolis. I’ve suggested Boston (he liked names of companies near my hotel) and Dallas (no snow), but it doesn’t sound like he may need to:

Rob got some good news the other night…from his first company. I hope they’ll hire him back.


I’m getting married on Saturday. I never though the day would come; time moves too slowly! Now I’m so excited I can’t sleep. I am putting together the last details (music, favors, place cards) and then the planning is finally over… and the big day comes.

My uncle is coming up from way southern Texas on Wednesday (that’s tomorrow!). Wow, I’m so excited to meet people I’ve never seen in a long time. A friend from high school is coming to the wedding. I sent an invitation and wasn’t sure if she would show up because she waited until the very last minute to respond. My mom was going to make it a surprise, but I noticed her name on the list when I was going through final counts.

After the wedding I plan on going on a mini vacation near Albany, New York. I’ll spend three nights at the hotel, plus the two overnights from driving. I’m excited for the vacation too that I might not even need the overnight of rest. But I’ll be safe, I promise.

I’m so excited I can’t even write a good entry…I’m like a kid in a candy store!

International Falls

I went to International Falls on Saturday. The drive was kind of boring. The typical road, surrounded by the fall past-peak colors. The drive up took almost five hours, and on the way home I managed to make it back in a little over three. I think “being up all day Saturday” syndrome got to me. By the time I arrived, I was really, really tired. I overslept and didn’t do much when I was up there. The visit consisted of a stay at one of the nicer hotels up there and lunch at Hardee’s.

While waiting for the lunch turnover and meal to arrive, which was at least thirty minutes, there was a two dollar Canadian coin sitting on one of the tables. After nobody claimed it, I took it for myself. (International Falls sits on the Minnesota-Ontario border.) I’m $1.82 USD richer, last I checked. The Canadian dollar does go further here; explains why Canadians jump here to shop, eat, and…gamble.

He’s considering moving to Canada on a temporary visa. Sounds interesting, yet scary.
