Wear the right shoes

I am back from Kansas. I flew out last Wednesday and drove back with Ryan yesterday (14 hours). The Clarks shoes to the right are completely cute and comfortable except when running nearly all the way around Chicago's airport to get a flight. I landed at 1 am instead of 9pm after delays, weather, missed connections and a plane which took 2 hours to taxi from the hangar to our gate, but I was glad to at least get in that night. I got my luggage the next afternoon. Ladies, imagine meeting your boyfriend's family for the first time without your regular makeup and toiletries! EEK!! Ryan's sister, Lori, was fabulous though and loaned me a bunch of stuff and I looked fairly normal. The weekend was wonderful with Ryan's family. There was much laughter! Next week, we go to Oregon for a few days to spend time with my family. I'm so excited!

Also, my nephew was born last week! Andy & Erin had their first baby, Cohen Andrew, and he's a cutie. I have tickets to go out to San Diego in about 5 weeks.

Lastly, Ryan is back for good! Our three month separation (with synod in between where we saw each other) while he interned out west is over. O.V.E.R. Seminary classes don't start for a couple of weeks so we will have some good times together, including making Bobby Flay's fish tacos sometime.

I would have DIED if that happened! Go ahead and say it, YES, Catherine is THAT superficial. Wow. But I guess under those type of circumstances you just have to be gracious and hope others are understanding.

Slighly related anecdote: when I was on a business trip to a foreign country not known for it's acceptance of Western clothing standards for women, one of my colleagues' suitcases mistakenly got sent to Karachi. It was the suitcase where she had packed all of her business clothes. So for the ENTIRE week we were in said country, she had to wear a t-shirt and capri pants, even when we were meeting with important people. Again, glad it wasn't me! :)

Oh great photo of new pappa Andy and his little Cohen!!! Can't wait to see him. Great job Alicia in adapting without your stuff--and I'm sure Ryan's sis loved helping you out. Auntie Chris

Memory sure is becoming cheaper these days. I wonder when we will finally reach the ratio of $0.01 to 1 Gigabyte.

I'm eagerly anticipating the day when I will finally be able to afford a 20 terabyte hard drive, lol. But for now I will be happy with having a 16 GB Micro SD in my R4i.
