A More Substantial Post

Hi friends!

Okay, okay, I'm sure you're growing sick of my super-brief postings about the nitnoid things that I'm doing to prepare the house for the move.

Not interesting!

Unfortunately, there isn't too much interesting stuff going on during the week. This week, Jake is in an ice skating camp. It's crossed my mind to sneak over tomorrow while he's on the ice and grab a couple of pictures...he said he's having a "pretty good time" and today he was skating on his own already, so I'm guessing he might have quite a bit of confidence by his last day, Thursday.

Every weekend has been full of family activities. As is typical just before one of our moves, Dave and I attempt to cram in as much activity as this case, we're getting all the North Carolina we can! This past Sunday we went to the beach with the Goldmans. I also have some pictures from our trip, but they aren't captioned yet. And as always, Maryann's are much better!

Saturday was the Goldman's annual "Patriotic Party", which is placed somewhere in the 2nd half of June between Memorial Day and Independence Day. This is our 3rd year taking part, and as usual, it was a blast!

(Enjoy this precious picture I caught with Maryann's camera of the boys sharing a Sit 'n Spin...for once they weren't fighting!)

This weekend, we're joining the Warlicks on an overnight trip to the mountains and Charlotte. We're planning a visit to the Linville Falls, then on to Charlotte where we're planning a tour of Lowe's Motor Speedway and then spending the afternoon at the Discovery Place museum.

And the following weekend will be our last Durham Bulls game (sniff sniff!). We'll join the Warlicks for that too.

Dave's dissertation work is in the final stages; after the Air Force gives its public release blessing, he gets to release it to the graduate school for official publication. That will probably happen next week.

He was excited to receive an e-mail today from the editor of the Monthly Weather Review, one of our field's premier peer-reviewed journals (think New England Journal of Medicine for meteorologists!) asking to review an article related to weather phenomena in Korea. Wow! Dave, reviewing MWR articles!

I couldn't be more proud!

So on tomorrow's docket:
1.) Buy some bright-colored sticky Post-It Notes to start marking the "Do Not Pack" items.
2.) Schedule canceling utilities in NC
3.) Schedule turning on utilities in NE
4.) Keep Timmy happy. We might take a trip to the pool, maybe I can do the cancellations/turning ons from the pool deck? What a life!

too bad you didn't have the cash before you left for NE. or i'd say you or dave should hop in one of those stock cars via "the richard petty experience" and get some hot laps in over there. it would be a great snapshot for the kids to see their folks going 175 into turn 1. (this past year's qualifying speed was in the 183 mph range, with the cars topping out at ~ 200-205 on the straight, average qualifying lap near i think ~28 sec).

as for dave reviewing MWR articles that are applying for future publication, that is an honor. and congrats to him for getting that high up. he would be one of the few people i know with that high a standing in the field. and he deserves that as well for all the research and hard work.
