Nice out, eh? You can't even see Hannaford across the street from work. Currently we are experiencing a blizzard and I am not looking forward to the drive home at 4:30pm.

My favorite picture of me from 2010. I normally don't like to take my picture but I like this one. It had started to snow when I reached the top while I was out searching for a 2001 geocache.

Georgia Aquarium

One of the best things about 2010 (besides my sister getting married) was that I got to see a whale shark :-) Never thought I would travel down to Atlanta and get to see one in person. Thanks Dad and Jamie.

I had a yummy Chocolate Oatmeal Stout by Central Street Farmhouse.
You can get cloth diapers and brewing supplies all in the same place
in Bangor on Central Street in downtown. 
It was nice to see a lot of the Twitter people I know there :)
I got recognized by people even though I was wearing my glasses.

I lost my favorite guy today. Sabi lost his battle with cancer and passed away at home. Todi was with him so he wasn't alone. Its hurts so much to know he's gone. He was the sweetest most loving dog who was always so happy. He just celebrated his 8th birthday last month.  We had a party. I think he knew how much we loved him. I am going to miss him so much.
