Last Hurrah?

This weekend went with Jane, Jodie & John to Green Bay for my last Packer game before Baby. Jeremy and I agreed that if the doctor said I could go, I would, but if by some miracle they play in Green Bay next week (the Cowboys would have to lose), I’m not planning on making […]


Christmas Vacation Comes to an End

Over Christmas break, we were able to spend a week in Madison with my family. It was great that Jeremy had the time off, and even though Mom and I weren’t feeling great, we enjoyed our time there. We relaxed a lot, I made some good progress on my knitting project for Baby and Jeremy […]


Thanksgiving Vacation

This year Jeremy and I headed off to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to visit Kevin and Marla in their new home. They moved there after Kevin’s retirement last spring, and this was our first opportunity to visit them. We flew down Wednesday afternoon, arriving late Wednesday night. This was new for me, flying somewhere for a […]


Best Laid Plans

Today was a beautiful sunny day. We woke to the sun over the lake and planned to drive up to see one of the largest waterfalls in Minnesota. It was a bit of a longer drive than I thought, but we continued through to Tettegouche State Park, just north of Silver Bay. We had some […]


Give Us a Break

I think it’s been about 24 hours, but I’m not sure. I have absolutely no concept of time at the moment other than that it’s still light out. We drove up to the North Shore yesterday for our long weekend (state teacher convention), checked in to our suite at Superior Shores, and proceeded to relax. […]


Part of History

“It doesn’t get a whole lot better than this.With Brett Favre playing like a man time forgot, Mike McCarthy making all the right moves and Greg Jennings reminding everyone what they’ve been missing, the Green Bay Packers outlasted the San Diego Chargers on Sunday in one of the greatest games played at Lambeau Field in […]


Could Bob Harlan Have Imagined This?

Jane and I went to Green Bay this past weekend for the game. We got there Saturday and spent some time at Lambeau to take in the game weekend atmosphere. There were lots of people, especially since if you want a hotel in Green Bay (or within about 30 miles) you have to stay for […]


marta

marta Originally uploaded by Jill Elfering. In my quest to try something new at NECC, I’m riding the subway (the marta) in Atlanta to meet Laurie, Matt & Tim for dinner. I know it’s very low-key compared to my parasailing in Seattle, but it’s about the most Baby will allow. It’s kinda stinky but a […]


First Night in Atlanta

P1010745 Originally uploaded by Jill Elfering. Well, I made it to Atlanta safe and sound for the National Educational Computing Conference. This year Cara and I are sharing a room, and it’s really nice to have the company! The flight down was ok, once I got over panicking that I might feel nauseous while stuck […]


Visit to Brew City for Anita’s Birthday!

This past weekend I drove to Milwaukee to spend the weekend with Anita for her birthday (which was the weekend before). I arrived Friday night to a beautiful sight – Anita recently had wood laminate floors installed. She’s done some great things with her house. I actually had my camera with me for the trip […]
