From the House of Catch-Up

Tonight the Husband of the Year is off to the first high school basketball game with his little girl in tow after emailing me from work the fateful, sexy words “If you need a break from the girl, I could take her to the game with me if you want to just chill at home or something.” I rewarded his sexiness by taking him up on the offer. If I can remember what “just chill at home” means, I will turn off on Oprah and do it as soon as I finish up this blog my work project.

I have been on deadline all week. I like to say “on deadline” because it sounds like I work at the newspaper with Superman. Really it just means I worked so slow that my projects became no longer staggered. Bah, holidays and hurricanes. Hoorah, income. Um, mixed feelings about needing to use scissors in my line of work.

Tonight I used the lazy man’s thesaurus on Microsoft Word looking for a synonym for insight. It suggested imminent, approaching, just around the corner, about to happen. I’d say Word is a little lacking in sharpness, shrewdness, good judgment, intelligence, expertise.

I know all y’all really care about is pictures of Anna, so stay tuned, Christmasey photo ops have begun. Speaking of Christmas, the nerdy time schedule Excel spreadsheet for our trip to Michigan is now taking reservations, so if you’re wondering when our paths may cross, drop me an email.

Hello, is this the reservation hotline?

Charlie has Christmas week off, so if cards, games, or general hanging out interest you, we would love to host something during that time. We offer an abundance of little-girl-friendly toys, too, in case Anna is not up for euchre yet.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Just want to make sure that Great-Grandma H, Auntie Barb & Uncle Jerry are on the schedule for some time! Heard that Christmas day is our plan. We are excited to see EVERYONE--but especially Anna!

Kendra, we'd love to see your place and how handy that it's so close to our "hotel"! Do you have my email? Snag it off one of Gus's emails and drop me a note so we can figure out when.

Auntie Barb, fear not, we will see you on the 25th! We do have to do double family duty that day though. Anna's excited to meet you!

Love you,

How about an open house or reunion of the "shower-gang" of last Christmas? That would be perfect for everyone to meet and greet the famous (or infamous?) darling, cutie Anna?

Actually, we're trying to schedule time to see your bro and sister-in-law on the 24th at the farm. Perhaps I'll see you guys too!
