Back From Beantown

We got back from Boston on Sunday but I haven't spent too much time on line. My wrist's been aching again. Boston was great. We visited hubby's 92 year old Uncle. We usually visit him for his birthday in July, but he was still recuperating from pneumonia so we went later this year. My sister-in-law, her husband and daughter came up from LI. They were in Hartford dropping their granddaughter off after her week with them. It was a nice weekend for catching up and reminiscing. Well, mostly for my husband and his family. Hubby and I snuck into Boston on Saturday afternoon. We went to Quincy Market for shopping and bar hopping. The Black Rose is a really nice Irish Pub located on the edge of the Market. We usually stop in there for a pint when we're in that area. Although last time I was there I made the mistake of using their ladies' room. Scary, scary.

I just received an e-mail from Amazon.com that my textbook has shipped. I guess I'm looking forward to school. I'm not anticipating school as much as last year, but then last year it was all new and different. Now I know what to expect -- a ton of more work. K and I had lunch today. I sold her my textbook from last semester as she's taking the database administration class this semester. I'll be taking Internet Architecture for Web Services. It looks fairly interesting. Some of the material to be covered, I already do at work so I shouldn't be as clueless as I had been in my past classes.

I was also disappointed to find out that I'm not going to be able to make the DayGlo Radio reunion next month. Hubby's awards dinner is the same weekend. I wasn't all sure I could have made it anyway. Fortunately I'll get to see R, and I'm looking forward to that. I picked up a little joke gift for her in a very wild shop, called FUNusual in Quincy Market. Oops, if she reads this post it won't be so much of a surprise, oh well.

Thanks, Sippy! I didn't have a Super Big Gulp on the plane as I didn't even see the cocktail cart go by. Cheap bastards! But the inflight selection of movies was superb, so I guess I will forgive Singapore Airlines THIS time!

Looking forward to seeing you!!!!!!!
