New News

I don't have anything very exciting to show visually so I'm just attaching the last random picture I took with my cell phone. Pretty soon I will have pics from my first major home renovation: the demolition of my faux fireplace. This is a direct result of needing more closet space; a direct result of Sarah moving in with me this summer (she has a lot of shoes). There will be 3 people in the house, a little tight, but I don't think anyone will be complaining about the lower costs which will certainly be welcome right now.

The band played last night after a 6 week hiatus due to Sam's wife having a baby. The crowd could have been better but it felt great to make music again.

I'm pretty much living for my summer vacation right now. This will be the first time I will have taken off work for more than 2 consecutive days since I joined the work force in September 2005. I rented a house in Cape Cod for one week w/ Sarah. Hopefully mom and El will be able to join us for part of that week. Sarah's Dad even wants to come check it out and he never leaves PA.

Not much else new. Hope the rest of you are starting to see signs of spring as well.

So much exciting news in such a nonchalant tone! Sarah moving in - - vacation in Cape Cod - - I can't believe you've not done a longer vacation from work in four years -- more band music. Glad to hear that you will also soon be posting more house pictures. Life sounds pretty good!

Martin,
Great to hear your doing well in Philly. Does Sarah know how difficult it is to live with Brown's? Enjoy the vacation and say hi to your mom, Eleanor and Sarah.

Martin,
Mostly am leaving so many stupid comments because for some reason my computer has decided to let me comment again after losing the capabilities for like a year. SO since it has been such a blog dry spell for everyone I thought I would up the comment anti. By the way sounds like life is good. Awesome, sweat ass, that's amazing!

After some rethinking I realized my vacation statement was wrong. Since I've been working at PCAH I have not taken off more than 2 consecutive days (a Thursday and Friday) to go to Dad's wedding. Before that the last major vacation I took was to go on tour to SXSW (Wednesday through Sunday) in 2007. Even if this is not completely accurate. Let's just say I've over due for a week off.
