My dear friend, Adam, died on January 15th. It was unexpected and we're so sad that he's gone. I've known Adam for about ten years and to tell you the truth it wasn't long enough. He and his wife stood up for us at our wedding and we shared so much of our daily lives with their family.
Adam was kind and funny and a true friend. I hope he knows how much Chris and I love him and how much we will miss him. We will always remember.

Gilmore Friday Night

Sometimes when things get tough I think about Lorelai Gilmore. Sometimes, when things get tough or I get lonely I watch Gilmore Girls on DVD - I have all of the seasons on DVD. I have the soundtrack. I'm not like this about any other television show. When I was offered to take some classes for work (paid for by the company) I only accepted after Chris agreed to get DVR because the class was on Tuesday nights and that's when the show aired. I've never been an obsessed fan, but I was devoted to this show.

There's something about Lorelai's quick wit, confidence and her wordsmithing that makes me love her. I don't want to be Lorelai - lets face it her life is a mess, but there's something so great about being able to see into this crazy little world. I want to live in that small, quaint town where all the people know you and love you and their always involved in crazy schenanegans. I love crazy schenanegans and activities with people I know. I haven't lived in a town where people know me since 1994. I really miss it.

I love the coffee too.

Sometimes I have to make a pot of coffee while I'm watching the show.

I also want the clothes.

I love that we're able to get tv on dvd. It's one of the tech advancements that I'm truly thrilled about. I think indoor plumbing, ez pass and tv on dvd are my top favs. The internet is good too. Internet shopping is not good for the budget - especially when you're admiring the clothes on gg.

Just a glimpse into my Friday night, folks.

For now, its all the news that's fit to knit.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from me and my guy! I truly hope you had an amazing holiday. I've been on vacation for two weeks and I am finally relaxed - so naturally I'm headed back to work tomorrow. There's a lot in store, but I think I'm coming off of this vaction with a new outlook for this new year - a little perspective. There is nothing more important to me than my family. They are my whole world and I am filled up by them. This guy in the picture with me - he's the best friend anyone could ever have and I've got to tell you I have no idea why he picked me, but it is one of my greatest blessings.

May 2010 be the best yet from us to you!

For now it's all the news that's fit to knit.
