    30 2005 By Sandy Other people s money I finally hunkered down with the books last night We the books and I spent some quality time getting to know each other How we like to be held where we like to be filed detailed notes on how we ve spent the last seven years of our life A few drinks later water for me ink for them and the first date jitters were gone and it was like we d known each other forever Actually it s not fair to call them books anymore It s hardly even paper It turns out my responsibilities as treasurer mostly involve navigating the myriad screens of Quicken This is an application that while I continue to buy it year after year I ve never quite been able to understand You d think knowledge of an accounting program or even a general understanding of how to bookkeep is a trait you d want your condo board treasurer to have I guess when the pickings are small you take whoever wears the smartest looking glasses And by the way I haven t balanced my checkbook in six years I started to after college thinking that checkbook balancing is Something One Does to qualify as an adult And for a year I did it and felt safer for it But once I realized the truth that as long as I had enough money in my account I d be fine I stopped wasting my time Friends have gawked at this reasoning and have since avoided situations that involve relying on my credit standing As if it s anything but immaculate Anyway this logic doesn t fly when you re in charge of managing the funds of a dozen individuals Just trust me we re good isn

    28 2005 By Sandy Fitting into old roles defining new ones Right now we re in an airplane flying eastward over the Missouri River It s the final stretch of a long and exhausting weekend in the Pacific Northwest A weekend that featured a reunion with old friends and the blossoming of a few new ones It was also our first big trip together as a betrothed couple and I m happy to say the early returns show solid endorsements all around Twice this weekend we met up with folks whose friendship is almost entirely virtual One runs a blog Sarah and I both read regularly and the other I ve met a couple times at conferences but whose life is so well chronicled online that I feel I know certain details of his life better than I know mine The meet ups were an opportunity to bring the friendships as lop sided as they may be into three dimensions I think there was also a bit of learning from the masters vibe to both meetings as Sarah and I are obviously new members of the exhibitionism via blogging country club But both times we came away feeling about as impressed and relaxed as possible It s easy to forget that these folks are real people and in these two cases two of the nicest folks we could have spent our vacation time with The rest of the weekend was spent at festivities surrounding the wedding of an old college buddy of mine It was a bit surreal to be spending time with a group of friends I hadn t seen all together in a half dozen years and whose behavior as a group instantly regressed into a reflection of that time The difference now besides less tolerant livers is

    60603 What does that mean Well basically it means that your package was shipped to Colorado instead of Chicago It s been marked Out For Delivery all day but it was out for delivery on a truck in Colorado There was no hope The mugs weren t going to even get to the midwest until Monday So I wrote Dan my rep at the mug company a stern email demanding an explanation and an offer of recompense He was mortified by the whole situation and by the time I walked in on Friday morning he d offered me the entire mug shipment for free if I would just forgive him So everything was squared away and taken care of And then twenty minutes before my meeting began The mugs arrived 2 Then we went to buy a bed today We have tried so many times to buy a bed since moving in her a year ago At one point we even bought a bed before realizing that the top cross bar was going to be digging into the back of Sandy s head all the time Finally we found one we really liked Well out of our price range but still gorgeous And from Dania like our beloved desk I took a deep breath and decided it was time to bite the bullet and pay more than I d planned because it s worth at least 300 to me to not have our mattress on the floor So I called Dania and spoke with Dave who was very encouraging and helpful We arranged to pick up the bed at Dania on Saturday Out we drove to the suburbs We asked the lady at the front desk if we could take a look at the bed in person before picking it
