New Job, Same as the Old Job

Not really the same, but I'm driving to the same place every day and working around a lot of the same people (for better or worse.)

Having the past few weeks off was pretty great, especially falling in the summer as it did. It meant the family got to spend a lot of quality time together, and do some honest-to-goodness road trip summer vacationing. After my last day with Harris I flew up to Jon's and hung out there for a few days while Carrie and the kids were off on a trip to Leadville with her family. Dad flew out too and we got in some brewery visits before Carrie and the kids came down and joined us. Hung out at Jon's for a couple more days then Carrie, the kids, and I drove back home together.

Summer Vacation, how I've missed you!

The Ocho

Carrie and I have been married 8 years today. Pretty great! Love you, baby!

Saturday Carrie posted to Facebook something to the effect of, 'it would be in your best interest not to finish all the ice cream for the next 6 months.' The next 6 months being, of course, the remainder of the current pregnancy. I accepted my failing, and on the way home stopped by Walmart and bought one of every basic Ben & Jerry's flavor they had. She woke up to the top level of the chest freezer filled with ice cream.

Last week I lost my wedding ring for most of the week. On Sunday I grabbed a pair of jeans out of the closet and found my ring in the pocket. That's pretty much where it is 50% of the time that it's not on my finger. The other 50% it's next to a sink or on the kitchen bar.

Later that same day we took the kids to the pool. Carrie hasn't seen her wedding ring since. She definitely remembers having her turtle ring on in the pool, which likely means her wedding ring was on when she got in as well. Doh!
