• On a plane to New Orleans. Spoiled by JetBlue, can't believe how tiny USAir legspace is.. #
  • Getting ready to eat crawfish etouffee on Chartres. #
  • Apparently my husband has never eaten REAL pecan pie before. #
  • New Orleans really not prepared for 28 degree weather. Restaurant door won't stay closed, waiters all in sweatshirts. #
  • Eating sweet potato and andouille sausage soup on Royal Street. #
  • Doing my best to support the recovering New Orleans economy. #
  • Sitting in the Community Coffee House on Royal Street, watching the gaslights flicker all down the dark streetfront. #
  • Kind of got almost warm in New Orleans today. Just briefly. #
  • OK, now it's cold again. And raining. Crawfish etouffee is definitely called for. #
  • Ran down to Esplanade this morning, around the edge of the French Quarter, back down Dauphine. Very chilly-looking New Orleansers out there. #
  • Eating beignets. #
  • Heading home now. Ready to see the kids (and I here there's snow in Virginia). #
  • Hey, YOU try updating your status via teeny-tiny Blackberry keyboard in airport and see what happens! INDIGNANT SNIFF/spelling correction. #
  • Oh, USAir:if you pack us in like veal, deprive us of food, and subject us to hard-sell for your credit card, we will NOT "enjoy the flight." #
  • Doing cross-stitch I bought on Jackson Square w/DD9. She is vaguely interested. #
  • DD9 is painting the dog's toenails. I think she needs a little more playtime with girls. #
  • Just faced down truck in dark field across lane, expecting to find delinquents who've been doing donuts. In truck: cousin on same errand. #
  • Beginning of DS18's last week at home before he departs for seven months of volunteer work in South Africa, India, Australia. #
  • So everyone at church said goodbye to DS18 (this was his last Sunday) and I bawled like a baby. A big weeping baby. 🙁 #

    I don’t even know you and I’m weeping with you! My son’s not going away (that I’m aware of), but what is it with those first sons? Bless you!

    My oldest ds is nine 1/2 … what struck me most about him turning nine was that half of my time with him was already gone.

    {Hugs} to you as your oldest leaves the nest.

    Love that you’re eating so much Crawfish etouffee. 🙂 A friend of mine is trying to perfect his recipe and keeps using us as guinea pigs. I love it! 🙂

    I love that someone else likes to eat their way through a city as much as I do. For our 5th Anniversary we visited Charleston and I was mostly interested in the food and a few historic sites for good measure.
