I’m Back

You know you haven’t written a while when you’re lying in bed and your wife says, “You’re falling behind on your blog.”

Yikes. It can’t be that bad. So my Monday post is going up nearly on Tuesday, that’s OK. Perhaps you were still enjoying the fabulous reads from my guest bloggers, Anna and Molly. I can’t thank them enough for stepping up, particularly on such short notice.

And, I’m going to be away again in a couple of weeks. So I’ll be looking for guest bloggers. I’m just saying.

And, speaking of just saying, what I’m saying to Molly, and what all of you should be saying to Molly is CONGRATULATIONS!!! Molly’s Michael has made her the happiest bride-to-be in the history of happiest brides to be (well, second happiest — I mean, wait until I tell my engagement story). I’m sure there will be more to this as details of the engagement and all the planning unfold, but before I look in the boss’s manual for “How to deal with an incredibly excited newly engaged person,” I offer Molly and Michael nothing but happiness. If you like reading her now, stick around, it’ll get even better. Meanwhile, come on, go here and wish them well.

So last week, I was in Florida for a couple of days. It was a cross between a business and pleasure trip. Let me just say this, no way in hell I could live in Florida. Too hot for my blood. The best part of the trip? Well, OK, it’s not really in the top five, but it’s still fun to do — people watch in airports. Is there a better place to people watch? I haven’t found one.

Had to bring some things home for the kids, so that made for an exciting time for Aidan. He got a few things, but the cutest thing is what he and Erin each got. When they are in it at the same time, I’ll be sure to take a picture. What is it? Well, I bought a Thing 1 shirt for Aidan and a Thing 2 onesie for Erin. I couldn’t resist.

Today at the breakfast table Aidan asks, “Dad, what will Erin’s voice sound like?”

My Patriots are on a roll, and my Sox are in the playoffs. It gets no better.

This is the big TV premiere week. Prison Break continues to be fabulous. We watched Big Bang Theory tonight. I laughed out loud a bunch of times. Hope it doesn’t disappoint. And for those My Boys fans, the star of Big Bang Theory is the guy who played Trouty. A complete TV post coming later.

For now, let’s just leave it at that.

What else? I got nothin’.

    On a roll, indeed! Another glorious victory for our beloved Pats. You know, they’re predicting us to go all the way…

    Also, I will be in Foxboro in two weeks against the Browns. Will be thinking about you!

    Ok Aidan’s quote could be the sweetest thing I have ever read. AND CAN YOU BELIEVE MOLLY IS FINALLY ENGAGED!? AHHHHHHHHHH! I am beside myself to have found this amazing news—well I don’t think I will be able to sleep ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yay – Mike’s back and balance is restored to the force!
    You’re not going to dye the kids’ hair blue, are you?
    We’re a Heroes/Lost/Grey’s Anatomy/Ugly Betty premiere family. Not that we watch too much television.

    Welcome Home!

    From the Boss’s Manual, under “Newly Engaged Employee”:
    Give up now. There is no job as rewarding and important as Bride-to-Be.

    Seriously, it was all they could do to get me to show up when I was engaged. One of my best friends is getting married on Saturday, and I am her Matron of Honor (which makes me sound WAY older than I am), and the owner of our company has just given up for the rest of the week. Half of the office is too busy discussing centerpieces, processional orders, and toasts to bother doing any work.

    I’m just sayin’. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    That may be the cutest kid quote I have ever heard. What an insightful thing to say!

    Can’t wait to see photos of Thing 1 and Thing 2. On your blog.

    Hello there fellow psychic.

    Your kid is freakin’ adorable, I can’t believe she’s engaged and the Pats are frickin’ ridiculous this year, with or without the cheating.

  7. Molly says:

    I love your son. Seriously.

    And thanks! You’re in for some major wedding talk this upcoming year!

    “What will Erin’s voice sound like?”

    THAT is great.

    So new TV… The Big Bang Theory has big shoes to fill now that The Class got canned. How sad… that was a good show.

    Did you hear that Molly got engaged???? ๐Ÿ˜‰
