Work has been super, crazy busy. I sprained my finger last month, it still hurts. Had my first session of occupational therapy today. I'm saving for a Prius, but for the moment our credit card debt is still too high to divert any money elsewhere. We're watching the Yankees game, hoping that the Angels will meet the Phillies in the World Series. The Miami Hurricanes beat the FSU Seminoles this year, so the rest of this season's victory is gravy. We've seen some really cool shows lately, most recently Big Bad Voodoo Daddy at the beautiful Delaware Opera House. We bought their new album on LP . Our dogs are healthy. I haven't missed meetings or preaching days even though work has been really, I mean really stressful. The weather is remarkably pleasant, and the stars seem to love me as much as I love them. Our summer vacation in Maine and Quebec City was unforgettably enjoyable. We go to Trinidad next month to see the in-laws, and I'm genuinely looking forward to it. Our friends who don't already have babies, all seem to be expecting. Our 8th wedding anniversary was last month - he bought me a pretty bracelet that I wear almost every day, and I bought him some stone lions ("Singh" in Hindi = "lion") for the driveway, and he loves them. He gave me earrings too, but I discovered my holes have closed for the first time since I was five years old, when they were first pierced, so I won't be wearing those until I can re-open them. A little sad. I'm still wearing the watch he got me for our first anniversary, and the telescope I got as last year's gift still gets plenty of use. Did I mention that I've been working really hard? I'm not designed for 50+ hour work weeks. Mom and Dad are doing okay, going through their ups and downs just like the rest of us. My finger hurts again now... I'm going to stop typing. Missy, when you're blogging more than I am -- that's how I know it's been waaay too long since my last post here.
