Ghosts of Halloween Past





Many (many!) years ago I took this picture of a friend of mine. It was at a Halloween party at a fraternity at my university. An alum came down and donned the lamest Halloween costume ever, what he called a "Charlie Brown ghost". At some point in the evening, we decided it would be funny to write on him. By the end of the evening, he was deemed "Beta Bridge", a local bridge…

Time with my tribe

I have been incredibly busy lately. I'm not sure I've been this busy before in my life. I'm juggling writing, running, volunteering with two schools and a running group, cub scouts, soccer, normal wife/mom stuff, trying to become a running coach, being the PTA secretary... I'm sure there's more, but those are the things that come to mind right now, in my five minutes before I need to run in another direction.

Take A Child Outside Week

Friday kicked off the "Take a Child Outside" Week. There were a lot of activities around the area, but unfortunately, we weren't able to participate.

I love the fall and I love getting outside and hiking and… Continue

Since we were up early for Jones' soccer game, we decided to head into Old Town Alexandria for lunch. Beer Geek and I had won tickets for a monuments boat cruise at an auction last year, so we decided to use those and buy tickets for the…

Tightening our (water) belt

We just got our water bill from the county. I nearly fell over. It was higher than I can ever remember it being! My first thought was "we must have a leak". After I took a moment to pick my jaw up off the floor, I went down and compared it to previous years' bills. I found out that it's not the highest usage we've ever had, but it's definitely up there. I know a big piece of it was the really dry summer we've had, but I know that we could be more careful around here. (… Continue
