Personal oddities

Posted on August 8, 2010 at 3:25 pm in

We all have little things about our personality that we recognize as personal quirks that we don’t necessarily share with others,  or hope they just don’t notice.  Or if they do they notice, we hope they either ignore it or get over it because, hey, that’s just how we are.

I had a recent experience where a friend of mine revealed to me that they have what appears to be the exact same personal quirk I do.  What made it so cool is that I’ve realized for years that – OK, this is different than most everybody but I’m stuck with it, so be it, maybe I’m a little crazy, oh well.

But hey, if it’s not just you….you’re not crazy, right? :)

Trip to Indianapolis

Posted on August 2, 2010 at 2:58 pm in

As mentioned earlier, my Dad was recently awarded his Doctoral degree so we took a trip to Indy to see his graduation.

We drove up over the course of two days – we broke it up to avoid an insurrection from the little one. We stopped at a hotel in Lexington, KY so we could swim and relax and then made it up to Indy in time for my Dad’s graduation. The following day we toured downtown Indianapolis with my sister and one of her sons, had dinner with my extended family, and then went to take a look at the house my parents just bought. We came back over two days also and stopped at another hotel with a pool in Knoxville, TN and then made it home the following day. Not the most relaxing vacation with all that driving but it was nice to get away for a little bit.
