For the first time in several months, we’ve both been able to leave the office at pretty normal hours, without taking work home, more than once in a week.

Sarah and I went with two mutual friends to an Indiana casino, tonight. The guys played poker while the ladies played $0.02 slots. I did well at poker, while my counterpart lost only a little.

I ran into a buddy (Nathan Renick) from my Panama City Beach summer in the Knoxville airport, Wednesday night. That’s exceptionally obscure, since he lives in Mississippi and I live in North Carolina. It just worked out that the only flight I could book (late) was through Knoxville and Nathan’s family was getting together in [...]
I spent the weekend (Friday through this morning) visiting my sister and brother-in-law. The weekend was lots of fun. I caught up with my good friends Brooke and Sarah (whom I’ve known probably longer than anyone else my age) and finally met some of my sister’s friends I knew only in name. The most interesting [...]
I don’t know how I forgot this; two of my dearest friends, Bryan and Kristine Vermillion, delivered a healthy, baby boy, today. Congratulations, Bryan and Kristine!
