The Post You Have All Been Waiting For...

I'm not sure where to begin this blog post...maybe with the lady who told me I "had balls" Monday...at the closing table. It sounds so scary ..."THE CLOSING TABLE" dun dun dun. And it was, a little. As of Monday at about 5:30pm I have officially become a home-owner, or more like a loan-payer, but whatev! I am super excited, nervous, overwhelmed, and completely happy that I have accomplished something I never expected for this era in my life. I never thought I would own a house....like, just me, alone. And while I may be forking over the bucks to make it happen, it's not just about the bucks (not you, Buck...a.k.a. the BF's dad, or those guys who think they are Buck Rogers at work ;-)). I am so grateful for everyone who supported me through those awful mood swings, emotional overloads, and downright Crazy April days. I am thankful for all the advice, support and patience. And I am thankful for all the people that are going to help me in the future (a.k.a. Mom, Dad, Chris, and the slew of people I need to recruit to help move the piano). And on a side note: is anyone else suprised that I had a low blood sugar half-way through signing all those freaking papers? No?... ok, didn't think so.

To the new house!!

  1. I bought my place about 7 years ago, and it was so nerve-wracking. But afterward, my best friend and I went to the new place and did a gleeful jumpy-dance all around it.

    Congratulations! Isn't it a great feeling? After all the signing is done, that is?

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…

Experience the Kennedy Space Center

Manned spaceflight is not a challenge forged from one molten idea - it's not a put-this-in get-that-out equation - it's not a sport for the isolationists. The notion that it was "one man's passion" or "one nation's resources" that got us to this engineering moment is simply false. And the idea that alienation could ever lead to exploration is impossible. There is likely no other industry or singular goal so intentional about teamwork - from employing teachers to technicians, soliciting standard to specialized natural resources, planning short term and long, investing in ideas and inspiration, training fresh-outs to experts, and communicating technically and politically. Tangibly, the manned spaceflight challenge crosses borders and age and gender, there are pieces of its presence spanning the entire globe, and beyond! 
One of those spots - notable for it's history as the last piece of Earth many astronauts touched before launch - is the Kennedy…
