What a great time we had today! Both my mom and dad made the scene, and we even had first time Seder-ers Jay and Carolyn. Wojtek got to have some of his beloved Gefilte fish and Oscar insisted on reading the Four Questions – in Hebrew!
Two days, 150 miles (actually about 156) on that little bike seat. We start at Woodcrest PATCO station, ride to Ocean City, NJ for Mack ‘n’ Manco’s Pizza and Johnson’s caramel popcorn, and then we wake up at dawn and bring that sucker home! All to raise money to fight Multiple Sclerosis. It was our first time doing the ride since cancer, and that, plus good weather, good, friends and an amazing cause, made it the best one yet!
This is the first batch of pictures from our extended weekend in New Hampshire. Em’s sister and husband have a beautiful place there where we could party with her folks and where I could spend my much-deserved down-time getting pummeled by a blond six-year-old. So relaxing! At least @TheLucyDog got to take full advantage of the downtime.
After Oscar (said blond tornado) went to bed, we could be embarrassed at Scrabble by sister Sarah who got the homonym bonus by nailing “sighs” and “size” in the same devastating move FOR THE WIN!
We had a great time at our first bar-b-q. All sorts of friends and family, lots of great food, a beautiful day and our brand new home.
Anyway, here are the pictures. I’m going to continue trying to get my life together after that onslaught of music, partying, chow, music, fun, music and more music and MORE MUSIC!!
Don’t know where anything is; don’t know if I live in Haddon Township or Westmont (might be both!); don’t know how to work the microwave (the what?); no curtains on the windows – this level of disorientation actually reminds me of college!
But the Phillies are 5-1 to start the season and the FiOS is furiously fast. Plus, I learned last night that our house is just around the corner from Saddler’s Woods, a major stop on the the Underground Railway. Let freedom ring!
Tomorrow is moving day! I have no idea where anything is. I tend to pack boxes with a terrible mish-mash of items, especially when moving day is hours away. That means that the socks, the mustard, computer cords and hard drives, dish towels and winter hats and gloves will probably all end up in the same box.
This weekend will be pure chaos as I look for all the work clothes I need for Monday. Of course, the stereo will be set up first. We’ll also try to get the kitchen going fairly quickly. Fun fun fun!
We closed on March 18, so its been tough having this great new toy and not being able to play with it. But all that changes tomorrow. Hopefully, the dog and cats will adjust quickly.
Emily did a tremendous job finishing up what will be our bedroom when we move in seven days. And I think Lucy is getting less anxious about the coming transition.
Afterwards, we were able to enjoy some quality time and amazing weather at Liberty Lands with Dorothy, Benjamin and Sadie.
