Happy birthday Maude and various and sundry other bits

Maude: Today is Maude's 40th birthday. Happy birthday, Maudie!

I was looking for a kid picture of the two of us, but unfortunately, everything is still packed. But then I remembered I'd scanned this one for our wedding slideshow.

I think we're about three here. It's Easter, and my family was visiting Maude's family in Chandigarh. I don't know which of us dropped the basket, but probably me.

The mail: It's not yet sorted out, but it's getting there. If you go on the USPS website and type in our addres to get a +4 zip, it tells you it's not a valid mailing address. But we've gotten a whole bunch of people involved, and it seems this will in fact get sorted.

Nick: Nick comes home tomorrow morning. He's been gone for ten days for work. California and then Alaska. Ten long, long days.

When he got to Juneau I asked if he could see Alaska from his hotel room.

"You mean Russia?"

"YOU try being pregnant, asshole!"

What I really meant was: "I miss you and can't wait to see you."

And 4th of July: Our office is letting us out at noon. As in, a few scant minutes from now. Yippee!

Tummy and I will be back tomorrow!


  1. You know, if we had sorted out that whole "you try being pregnant, asshole = I miss you and can't wait to see you" thing, 18 months of Chris' life would have been more pleasant.

  2. Happy Happy Birthday Maude!

    Lisa you have the best, sweetest photo archive. Sweet, sweet photo.

    Very glad both Nick and mail will be arriving soon :) Have a fantastic holiday weekend!

  3. That's a funny conversation between you and Nick! I love it! But could he? No, for real? Just askin'.

    Happy Birthday Maude!

  4. Happy Birthday Maude!

    And, yay for mail getting sorted, for getting out early, and for conversations in marital code. :o)

  5. Hahahaaa as much as I dislike Palin, it's almost as if she was created to add entertainment to politics.
    While on topic - yayyy Franken!

  6. Love when all things come together and the planets line up again, even just for a while lmao.

  7. Your conversation with Nick made me laugh out loud. :) Thanks!

  8. Noon! You lucky duck. I had to suffer til 3!
