2012's auspicious beginnings

Aside from awkwardly shaking hands and suffering from killer colds, here's what Isaac and Camber have been doing:

-Isaac went to Hong Kong in January for 9 days and discovered that Hong Kong has its own...
Buzz Lightyear
Crazy Factories
Toilets. Kind of.
Blink. Better than bling?
And, um, pizza. I think.
In other news:

-Camber applied to Nurse Practitioner school in Cincinnati (a 2-year master's degree) and is waiting to hear if she got accepted.

-Camber also went to Cincinnati last weekend to visit said school and was promptly greeted by a rainstorm and a tornado warning, complete with sirens.

-We are moving there in a few months.

-If it's still there.

-Isaac got over his man cold. And Camber, browsing through this blog's archives, realized that Isaac posted the same video and blogged about it a few years ago himself when he got a cold. Funny boy.

-Isaac graduates in 64 days! We're not excited.

-Actually, we are.

-Sunday we ate a cajun-creole themed dinner with our friends, the McAllisters. We had fried okra, hush puppies, maquechoux, black-eyed peas, jambalaya, and sweet potato praline cheesecake.


-Isaac's family is coming to visit in ONE MONTH! We're not excited.

-Actually, we are.

-Camber's phone fell in an unspecified body of water. It's on the fritz. She cannot remember life before cell phones. Did happiness exist back then?

-Her phone is in critical care and being tended by a ziplock bag full of dry rice. Should it ultimately die, money can be sent in lieu of flowers.

-Isaac and Camber read the first Fablehaven book together. Isaac's not sure if he can continue on. Camber liked it. But then, she didn't major in English.

-They also watched one and a half seasons of Downton Abbey. Then Lent came and Isaac swore off TV for 40 days. Camber doesn't believe in Lent.

-Camber's dilemma: finish season 2 alone? Would that make her a bad wife?

-If so, how bad exactly?


  1. That is funny, my phone fell in a body of water similar to the one you described. It didn't make it.

  2. I can't wait to hear how Cincinnati was! I just started watching Downton Abbey this week. I think I'm hooked.

  3. I love reading your blog! Good Luck on NP school, that is so awesome! You will do great! I miss working with you! :)

  4. haha! Oh Camber you crack me up. sweet potato praline cheescake??! pinch me. That is some really yummy looking... uh.. pizza? I didn't know you ran right into a tornado warning in Cincinnati. Scary! And your poor phone! unspecified body of water sounds an awful lot like the toilet to me. :) I think you should finish Downton. I don't know how you haven't already! Isaac can finish when Lent is over. :)

  5. I love it! NP school is perfect for you Camber!! You'll do amazing!!
    Ok, not sure about this whole Downtown Abbey thing...what channel is this on? How did I not know it existed? Will I be hooked if I start now? Do I need to start from season 1? Help me out...

    1. Downton Abbey is on PBS I believe, yes you will be hooked, yes you need to start from season 1, and you can try watching the episodes from here:

      Good luck! :)

  6. Does Isaac like it? I mean, it would obviously be okay for you to continue on with Fablehaven without him. But how bad of a wife you'll end up being if you finish Downtown Abbey will depend on Isaac's opinion of the show.

  7. Your posts always make me laugh! Thanks! So sorry about your phone and the tornado.

  8. P.S. I tagged you!

  9. Haha. I always get a good laugh when I read your blog.
