Take 214

7 Quick Takes Friday 
--- 1 ---
It took me seven whole weeks to add value to the company I now work for. (Except for making ice manually from 3 measly ice trays... That's been going on for a while--and is appreciated by many.) Glad to be slowly moving away from training videos.

I have been amused by the concept of what I've been calling "The Lazy Photographer". It relates to getting the perfect shot with a camera. It's true that the best shot of my toddler is never going to be taken while I'm in a comfortable position. Try laying down on the pavement, honey. Then you'll finally like your shot. I'm trying to learn to stop being so lazy. Hah. Everyday!

Thanks to be on the east coast (and an awesome book from Aunt Melanie on NYC), George officially knows the difference between a rocket and a rockette.

We bought a microwave! We went almost 2 months without one... and that was plenty for me. Apparently, I'd rather risk the ill effects... Give me my heated leftovers (sans burned-to-the-bottom pans)! Oh, and I'm wearing and rice heater packs on my shoulders!

I've been reading the second book of the series of, "Call the Midwife". So far it's very different than the first book in the series! Here is a line that I loved:

"They were a bunch of feisty women who had seen it all, lived and loved and suffered throughout, and remained true to their vocation."

Someday, I hope someone will say that about me.

I'm the baby of my family--by 7 years. That means that I spent a lot of time wanting to be just like my sisters. That also means that I spent a large chunk of the 90s listening to Enya. But, I was still 8 in 1993... which means that now when I hear Enya, I close my eyes and see Super Mario on my Super Nintendo... Because I always muted the music from Mario and blared Enya.

I'm contributing to the Perkins School for the Blind project: Bus Stop Challenge. Check it out! It's really cool. The first few paragraphs will give you a picture of why it needs to be done. I'm hoping it happens in lots of cities and towns--especially where my nephew Sean lives!
