Happy Hallo-WEEN!

Hey Everyone, 

This is IZZY!!!!! I'm Nerdy April's wiener dog! Nerdy April is probably off doing some homework, or reading a book, or working...you know, all those things Nerdy people like her do. Anyway, I thought it was high time I show you the torture Nerdy April puts me (and Gordo) through. Because, seriously, it's horrible. OOOOHHHHH, she thinks its "cute", but believe me, its so totally-to-the-bone NOT! [mmmm.....bones.....] brb...

Ok, I'm back, just had to...uh...you know, nab that pesky ball and chew a bone to bits, that's all. So, back to the torture, well the other day I was reading my favorite comic strip Drabble. Basically it has some people and a wiener dog, just like me!!! Mom [Nerdy April to you] walks over, looks over my shoulder [how rude!] and squeals with delight. She started laughing hysterically and walked off mumbling something about a "hotdog" and "Halloween".  Little did I know that was just the beginning. She got this crazy idea to reenact the goings-ons from the comic strip, using ME! [although those treats {read: bits of Gordo's food, that is waaaaayyy  better than mine} she lured me with were amazing!!!] So, in the spirit of Hallo-WEEN, here is the against my will wiener dog photo shoot, with accompanying original Drabble cartoons.

As you can see, I'm pretty sure Wally is the only person, well, dog, that gets me. I mean come on Mom, a hotdog costume for a wiener dog, how unique....[enter sarcastic giggle here]....

Gordo also joined in...he's got my back!!
Anyway, this is my blogpost, so I must end with a picture of ME!!! I choose this one, of me with my favorite pillow....it has a space shuttle or something weird like that on it, again, super nerdy!! Hope you guys have a happy Hallo-WEEN, and hopefully you don't have to spend the night strapped into a fake hotdog bun....WOOF!
 PS: I don't really hate mom as much as it seems....in fact I'm totally not [wink, wink] snuggling under the covers with her right now!!

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…
