Big news!

Mr. Wilson got his cone off!!

Oh yeah, and I made it through my first day of
work at the
Newberry Library

It's a really neat place with some amazing materials,
and I'm pretty excited to be working there!

Also, Z did not take our camera to
Michigan last weekend,
but he did post pics on Twitter.
He and Adam had a fabulous time.

Chicago Marathon & such

See Adam run.

Pretending to look like he's not about to fall out after
finishing the Chicago Marathon.

The green roof is the Harold Washington (main) branch of the
Chicago Public Library

A view of the lake from Buckingham Fountain.

A couple of weeks ago our good friend Adam
completed the Chicago Marathon & we are so
proud of him!

Now Z and I both want to run more
(although I have no ambitions nor delusions
of me being able to run 26.2...but maybe a half?)

Unfortunately we are about to enter a rather
unforgiving time of year in Chicago...
so hello treadmill if we want to run!

We really have not been doing too much lately, so
not much to report.

Z is on reading week at school and will be taking
a trip to Michigan over the weekend, so maybe some
pics after that.

Also, good news--I finally got a job! More about that later.

Random thoughts..

Boiling water makes for interesting photos.

Molly and Mr. Wilson are best buds now after she
stayed with us for a few days last week.
Also, Mr. W's paw is MUCH improved and his cone
comes off next week.
On the other hand, maybe he's starting a new trend: Doxie Pillow

And finally, totally random....
here is a picture of a bird I saw the other day.

So, things are pretty much the same these days,
applying, interviewing, and waiting to hear about jobs,
school, and homework.

It is starting to get cold here, though.
The radiators came on last night,
so here we go....!
