Whip It

13Oct09

Yesterday was an off day for us (though not for everyone, I realize).  Around 9 a.m., we saw a preview for the new Drew Barrymore-directed movie, Whip It.  “Let’s go!” I said to Marc.  He agreed and we were able to get it together to attend the $6 pre-noon showing in Burlington.  Score!

Hey Sis!

23Apr09

As I mentioned in a previous post, I made the decision to become a Big Sister through Big Sister Association of Greater Boston, where I am currently employed.  I have decided that now is a great time in my life to make the one year commitment to the program.  I also know that in my […]
