What I've been doing, Pt. 1

Hey there!  Wow, talk about an extended break.  May ended up being really hectic, from the event I had to plan at work for our graduating seniors to the road trip down to Tennessee to celebrate my grandmother's 80th birthday.  I can't complain; I love seeing my family, and I love having something at work to keep the time flying by.
Here are some of the smaller things I've done with my spare time:
Well, this speaks for itself.  New Tetris high score on my phone; woohoo!
It should be noted that, mere days after this feat, John Paul beat my score by an additional 40,000 points. Jeez, he's a beast.
I'm on a grant committee for the DC Public Library System, and had to read through 18 grants to decide who got money for specific projects.  We met on May 17; all of my favorites were chosen!
JP and I rearranged parts of our home; this nook off the kitchen used to have our dining table.  Now, it houses a small bar, and chair for reading.  It's really opened up the space, and it's nice to have a spot to enjoy a cocktail after work...or dusting.  Really, do we need an excuse?
We're registering for wedding gifts next week!  After a fact-finding mission, we figured out what we need and the best places to get it.  I'm really excited to put together our lists.
There was a pie day at work.  This is just one of three tables filled with pies and other goodies.  Oh, and there was singing and choreographed dancing.  Days like that make this whole job thing worthwhile.
Oh, and some sleeping.  How do you like these new pillows?  They're supersoft and fuzzy; I would have rugs like this in the bedroom if my man would let me.
Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of the people I've seen recently, including cousins, rapper/comedians, and a soul singer.  I think you'll like it.


  1. I MISSED PIE DAY?! Bummer.

    I miss you guys. Totally strange being out of the office!

  2. So glad you are back! What did you do with your dining room table? And what a great group of pictures - so newsy! xoxo (Mommi)

  3. The dining room table is now in front of the big window in the living room, perpendicular to the couch. John Paul's idea, and it totally works!
