Still Alive

I'm just popping in to say that I'm still alive even though I've been slacking on posts. I caught one of those fun fall colds and am apparently WAY allergic to something. So it could be a food (eggs, wheat, soy, gluten, etc) or the mold in our walls from our upstairs neighbor. The fun thing about apartment living in NYC...having your upstairs neighbor's toilet run for THREE YEARS before something busts and water starts leaking down our walls. Fun stuff. Another fun thing...trying to tell your Super (who does NOT speak English) that painting/plastering isn't good enough and that the dry wall needs to be replaced. Sigh. Does anyone want to trade places with me for a while?

Good news: I got tons of cool photos from our Auburn trip, our trip to Schenectady/Albany, and a few book reviews.

Also good news: My family is so cool.

My sister got us an early Christmas gift (light down comforter) which I am LOVING since it's officially freezing here in NYC. It definitely makes getting up in the morning more difficult but that's ok.

AND my brother sent me a hardback copy of What Happened to Anna K. which I've been really wanting to read. Yippee!

AND my husband bought me an assortment of flowers since I've been feeling less than well. He is so thoughtful. AND brought home a Blue Ray version of The Nightmare Before Christmas (which I'd never seen before) which we watched last night.

Ok maybe things aren't THAT bad :)


  1. I'm sorry you've been sick. That toliet thing is just Ew.

    I feel like I've been absent from the blogging world lately too- my reader has 500+ posts in it!

  2. Hope you get to feeling better!!
