Yoga cat!

I got the yoga mat out of the back of the closet and have it laid out in the bedroom to force me to stretch more. Unfortunately GG is a fan of this new item and likes to lay on it. Here she is doing “Lazy Cat”.

Could this in fact be our first Woodbridge moment?

I see this a lot around town - cars who honor those who have passed by placing some sort of sticker on their car. I am all about honoring those individuals, but really on a car?

May 14th

Today was LDC day at Nationals Stadium. We were treated to great seats behind Home Plate and access to the PNC Club, which provided all you can eat food and drink. The game was at 1PM - it is now after 8PM and I'm still not hungry!

The day was cool and cloudy, with a little bit of drizzle. Unfortunately the Nats lost to the Marlins, but a good time was still had by all! Looking forward to another game this late Summer/early Fall!

May 7th - Gold Cup

 Finally! I am going on my 8th year of living here and I've always wanted to go to Gold Cup, but I always seem to have something scheduled. While the rest of my May is jam packed, I actually had this weekend free. When Alissa asked if I wanted to go, I said yes immediately. We got a great deal on a bus to The Plains, food, drink and a spot right on the North Rails. We were so close to the action and a great time was had by all (some more than others). It was especially fun at the end trying to watch twenty-something’s (with way too much alcohol) trying to find the correct bus to get home! Here is Alissa, Brendan, and myself.

April 30th

Today I got up early and met with some of the Thetas to volunteer at the first annual "CASA Fairfax Run for the Children 3K/10K". The day started a little cold and windy, but then the sun came out and jackets came off. We served as Course Marshals and were placed near the beginning of the race. Here we are before we headed out to our posts.

In the afternoon, I met up with Anna and the kids for lunch. Ethan just started solid foods the day before. Down below you can see the many Cheerios, melon and fries that didn’t quite make it in his mouth. Thank goodness we were at a kid friendly restaurant!

April 29th

Today we moved into the new digs. Overall, the commute took me about 10 minutes longer in each direction - but no more Manassas! Everyone got unpacked fairly quickly and we even got a little work in. My office is pretty much together. I have one more picture to hang, but as you can see - no boxes left!

April 27th

Goodbye Office.

Today we packed up the office for our big move to Woodbridge. It was 6 years ago that we moved into this new office building in Manassas. It wasn't exactly easy to get to, but was in a great location in Old Towne Manassas. Easy pedestrian access to restaurants, the Post Office and my Financial Planner.

Tomorrow I head to the new office. Being the Type A person I am, I want to get there by 7AM to start setting up my office. At a minimum, unpack the crates and set up the desk so I'm ready to start working at 8AM. It will be nice to be in "our" building and as a bonus, I have a friend who works in walking distance of the office.
