Dottie catches a ride.Aye. It’s been some time. So, I’m just going to hop back in here with an update.
Ready, steady, rock.

Bocce love

Bocce season started up.
Bocce season, with its food themes
(Food with booze in it! Balls! Birthday food!)

So far, we played the team from Sinskey (Industrial Gluttons), the team from church (The Holy Rollers) and next week, we’re playing the Casino Cowboys, a team comprised of some of our dearest friends.

So far, we’ve won 4 games, and lost 2.
So far, I’m madly in love with my Joanie Loves Bocce family.


(Come out to the park some Thursday! We have a lot of fun!)


And, I think I mentioned it, but I’m speaking at EVO again this year!
Keynoting even!
I’m so excited to get the chance to participate in such a special event.

Our Awesome Couch

Our new couch

We bought a new-to-us couch and strangely enough, it changed everything.

James and I are nicer to each other.
The rest of our house is staying spotless.
We’re in better moods.

Come over and see the new furniture. Kick your feet up. I’ll make you an Old Fashioned, Wisconsin-style.
Or my special ginger punch.
(Not that we’re punching gingers, that would be rude.)

More thoughts about the internet coming next week, I can’t wait to share.

    Here’s a (multi-part) question for you: How did you get involved with conferences, how did you start speaking at conferences, and what do you get out of attending them?

    And then the selfish part of the question: Would you see any value in someone like me attending one?

    Couch looks super comfy. I’m thinking maybe that’s what my apartment needs to make my life happier.

Hooray for replies!
