New York 3/4

Well,

I haven't stayed to what I set for myself. BLOG EVERY SUNDAY! This was my goal. Err.. I got busy.

Jack and I went back to Nashville last weekend at the last minute. I didn't get back to NY until Monday night and I was totally tuckered out. Alas, no blog! Then Jeff's cousins came into town and we have been hangin' with them. With my online class I feel like I am constantly on the computer. But, like flylady would say, "I can do anything for 15 minutes." So, here I am.

Highlights

1. Body: the exhibit. This place was awesome. Real human bodies displayed. It was incredibly interesting, expecially since I just finished antaomy last semester.

2. Going back to Nashville was great. I had a weekend to reconnect with friends and not be by myself since Jeff had to go do a Kenny gig. I went to church, went to my community group, and got to connect with my AA girls at a book study. I saw my mom and dad. It was great. One highlight was spending the afternoon at my friend Julie's house (who is an excellent baker) where we made a bannana creme pie for my dad's birthday. It was so fun! THe pie turned out amazing!

3. Jeff's co-worker's wife Jennifer is finally here in NY. She has two kids (Evangilene, 3 and Cameron, 6mo). She has been in my shoes for the past two years. We have been having a lot of fun together in Central park. I am becoming sort of an expert on playgrounds.

4. Alas, Kenny did not give ANY bonuses this year and Jeff and I feel like the griswalds from Christmas vacation. It is a totally bummer. We were totally expecting a pretty big check. Boo. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. So we are buckeling down for a bit to adjust. I went to the grocery store and guess what? 3.29 for a head of lettuce!! Annie, I think I am beginning to understand how you feel. EK! If you can believe it, Whole Foods the the cheapest store to shop. So I got us some groceries and it's meals at home for a while. (not a bad thing)

Ok, well here are some pictures and I am going to try to blog on Sunday. (God help me)
