Sometimes my job has its benefits…

In like a lion, out like a norovirus?

Ugh, so this is the 2nd time in my life that I’ve had norwalk on New Year’s Eve. The first time was on a cruise ship in the Caribbean, I made it past midnight and then fainted in the bathroom of my cabin and didn’t eat for 2 whole days. I think I lost like, 10 pounds. Not cool.

Same kind of thing happened this year, too. Not only to me, but to 13 other people at a party I was at and other people across the country that I’m friends with.  I shall be washing my hands with vigor for the next 3 months, most definitely.

Right now, there is a ton of snow coming down…its light and glittery. I hope that means shoveling will be easy tomorrow since we might get up to 16 inches of it.

Already read and finished my first book of 2014: “Apologies to My Censor” which I thought was going to be a travel type book, but was more memoir with travel in it. Not bad. A book on Charles Sumner is waiting to be finished and one on Benjamin Church and another on the French and Indian War are waiting to be started. I’m such a geek.

 

Here is the last official photo of 2013. I say last official because I took some pathetic self portraits while sick and those aren’t going anywhere

Weddings are a very involved thing…

So, about 2 months ago, I got married to my boyfriend of almost 15 years (our dating anniversary is now 5 days after our wedding date)…and we (stupidly) thought that it would be easier because we have been together for so long and didn’t want a huge event.

HOWEVER, other people had different ideas.

It is hard to stand firm in your decisions when both mothers are telling you that things are wrong or you are being a jerk…but it can be worth it.

We had an awesome Justice of the Peace, a great photographer, and a beautiful venue on a warm day complete with a rainbow during the ceremony.Image

Some things did go poorly, but the good outweighed the bad. I have learned how to write good nastygrams, though 🙂
