Quick Update

A quick update since it has been so long since I made time to post.
This weekend is busy. Luke and Jackie are getting married tomorrow. Nick and I are honored to be included in all of the events prior to as well as the actual ceremony and reception.
Work is going extremely well this year. I am one of the few that can say I love my job.
Nick and I are busy during the week as usual but somehow we find ways to hang out together even if it is just talking for 10 minutes before we fall asleep. Ali is still an angel.
We are looking forward to Fall arriving...been getting a few cool (mid 60's) mornings this week which means it is time to start budgeting trips to Starbucks for hot mocha machiattas (SP?) There are 2 Starbuck locations on either route to either school I work at depending on the day of the week and it is so tempting to leave 10 minutes early to make a quick stop...however, not only can my checkbook not afford the excessive luxury, neither can my diet (the ugly 4 letter word).
I really need to be going but I want to leave you with one of my favorite (sappy romantic that I am) quotes from The Way I See It #144 - Marble Mocha from Tuesday morning:

"I used to feel so alone in the ciy. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stumped by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say "Hi." They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word." - Augusten Burroughs author of Running with Scissors

That's one of the most profound quotes I've ever heard. Bravo.
