    planning ramped up actually becoming a project with deadlines and to do lists and everything Back when we got engaged we scheduled the wedding for 14 months out not because we felt we needed the time to plan a humongous fete but because we wanted to relax for a while and enjoy fiance hood before diving into the whole wedding thing Ha Things just don t work that way Looking back over the winter archives it appears our posting rate has dropped off especially if you don t count the three posts that are just contributions to the latest meme thread We had things to say but our minds were elsewhere I was busy with my latest freelance gig developing the website of certain superstar storyteller When I wasn t doing that I was working another freelance project one that ll remain secret for now hint my payment will be printed then framed Meanwhile Sarah spent her winter months watching the stress o meter tick ever higher as the big launch event for her project at work inched ever closer I did my best to keep her grounded as she coddled and caressed her baby into a perfect launch NASA could learn a thing a two Early in the winter we learned the details of how the CTA restructuring would affect our daily commute The hammer came down about a month ago and really it s been no big deal The slight bit of extra exercise has been nice as the new scenery The longer walk an earlier departure time an earlier alarm groggier mornings but we ll manage Not so nice is the coffee shop next to the Francisco L blasting Eric and Kathy every morning Is it just me or have those two never aged Affable or no
