Who likes Boston anyway?

David just got back from Boston tonight, after a long two days. I've decided that we as a newly wed couple do not like Boston. Not only did they win the world series in baseball, but they have the leading team in football also right now, New York sport fans are not happy. I would define Boston as bothersome in a nutshell. David works for a software company in Manhattan as the Education Sales rep over the Northeast, mainly Manhattan and Boston so these trips are going to become more frequent. I guess the Lord is trying to teach me patience or tolerance or how to develop new talents as I have discovered this week that I have very little of all three.

Poor Marley was also upset that David went away. His everyday over the top energy was completely drained as he lay on the floor for the entire two days. His normal bad chewing habits stopped, his constant begging for attention as well the never ending attempts at sneaking into our bedroom temporarily ended as his spirits were crushed that he was actually left alone, here, with just me.

I can't help but think of Thanksgiving. We are getting ready to fly out to Utah for a quick holiday trip. I am SO thankful for my family. It is hard being so far away, missing the fun moments, and the not so fun moments. I think about how different my Sunday afternoons would be and how much lower my cell phone bills would be. And have to remember that I am here starting my own new family and creating fun moments and not so fun moments and trying to give an innocent grin to get out of trouble for the cell phone bills. I am Thankful for how my life has turned out so far. David and I are as happy as can be. We love the beach and eachother we finally get to spend time together. We have amazing families that support us and love us. There's not much more to ask for. Happy Thanksgiving.

Day 90

Welcome to married life. David and I are happily married for 90 days today and will be celebrating our 3 month anniversary on Saturday (the 26th).
We are adjusting to the colder weather slowly creeping in, while mourning the loss of our pool for the winter. The boardwalk is even more beautiful with the cold weather, the crowds have gone home leaving the beaches open to the waves and the seagulls. Marley finally gets to enjoy the sand for the first time. He loves to run as fast as he can until he can't run any more. The ocean is still too scary for him, his first time in the wave caught him off guard sending him about two feet straight in the air. I nearly peed my pants laughing at him. Needless to say he is happiest on dry land.
