Day 266, Turnabout isn’t always fun..

The focus of yesterday’s blog was the nice weather here in the New Jersey and how I have been fortunate to get out and walk during my lunch hour (sometimes a little more than an hour).  I had planned to walk again today. But, the work bear bit me in the butt instead. I started with one customer at 9 am and finished up with them (for today) at 3:30 pm. I ate my lunch while I was working. Needless to say, I missed my chance to walk today. I did however, leave work at 4 pm and take my lunch hour at the end of the day.

The weather at work (as best I can tell) never got very nice. Each morning we have had dense fog. Most days this fog burns off by 11 am or so. The few times I left my office and was able to look out the window, it was still cloudy. When I left at 4 pm is was chilly and overcast. By the time I got home it was warm and sunny. What a difference 35 miles makes.  I will try to get outside again tomorrow. I have my fingers crossed. 

 One of the people I follow on Twitter is called stthomasblog  They are a couple from the Boston area that moved to St. Thomas. They make their living doing website development, advertising on their blog and bartending. They Tweeted tonight that they had a conversation with a family member today who lives on Cape Cod. The temperature on Cape Cod was 78 degrees. The temperature on the north side of St. Thomas was 75 degrees. How’s that for a switch? I bet the overnight lows are quite different.

This week DS2 is at a National Music Therapy convention outside of Baltimore, MD. He called this evening to tell me about his trip down and what is going on with the convention. He said that tomorrow he and some of the other students and music therapy professionals are going to Washington, DC to meet with various members of congress. He told us that he is going to attend meetings with the NJ senators and congressmen. They will be presenting their case for music therapy and asking the congressmen to keep music therapy in their minds when doing their legislative duties. That is pretty cool.  Hopefully he will share some stories tomorrow or Friday.

DS3 has been quiet. DS1 is working all day today. He has class and a job interview tomorrow with the company that one of my lacrosse mates works for. (Lacrosse mates? I guess, you understand.)  It is a real job for a real company. That is a huge start.  My DW worked a full day. She was surprised to see me home before her. I got to cook dinner tonight since I was the first one home.  I enjoy cooking.

Tonight’s pictures come from February 2011. In these two pictures DS2 is singing with the Marywood chorus. He is in the back row, left side with the full beard. Enjoy!
