Dave graduates!..

Dave is all done! He graduated with his Masters in Cost Analysis, having to take double the amount of credits than most graduate programs, and write a thesis to top it off! It was great that his parents were able to come out to see him graduate, and mine were able to watch it on the internet!

Pandora's Box(es)

Over the past few months I have been slowly accumulating boxes from the kitchen at Mini U, the school I work at. This slow accumulation has resulted in our guest room looking like the back mail room at a post office or something. Boxes from floor to ceiling, totally covering the guest bed, blocking any sort of light that would be coming in from the window since their piled in front of that, too; the boxes made it nearly impossible to open the closet door, or the bedroom door for that matter.

The funny thing is, since I was getting the boxes from the kitchen at work, and they were getting the boxes from GFS, we will be packing our life into boxes labeled: Broccoli Spears, Translucent Plastic Dinner Wear, Mandarin Orange Segments, Cheese Filled Soft Pretzel Sticks, and my personal favorite, Colossal Crinkle Cut Frozen Potatoes.

I spent about 15 minutes throwing boxes down the stairs while Dave organized them by size, in the garage. Throwing boxes down stairs...actually, throwing anything anywhere is pretty fabulous, and a great de-stresser. I recommend it. Now our guest room is prepped and ready for Dave's parents who will be here on Thursday, and our garage is now the most flammable room in the house.

Never say never, I guess...

I always said, "I will never have a blog". Well, cripes, here we are! In an effort to keep family and friends updated, informed, and in the know about our crazy, adventurous, hectic lives, I thought a one stop shop of info, about us, would be just right!

So, as of right now we have only 3 weeks left of Ohio
livin'! Just yesterday Dave defended his (200+ pages!) thesis to his committee, and he is well on his way to graduation in 2 weeks! And to think, this is the same guy who purposefully avoided a class until the summer session while in college, because it required a 20 page paper! Dave will officially have a Master's Degree in Cost Analysis on March 26!

We are hitting the road to our
Hermosa Beach, CA home on April 2!

Please excuse all the exclamation points! I'm excited!
