Song of the Week: Golden Years – David Bowie

Week in Review: What do you do when stuck in a city full of snow and no events going on?  Well if you were a Roving Van Gelder you would go to the movies, lots.  Hit four different flicks this week, so many that I earner mayorship on Swarm at the theater.

Week in Review: After a week back in the office we headed to Indianapolis. My favorite part of Indy is how close it is to Cincinnati and my bestie.  Having the weekend off, we headed for the river city and a great weekend.

Song of the Week: The Reckoning Song by Asaf Avidan & The Mojos (Wankelmut Remix)

Week in Review: We did in fact see Star Wars again, I think there might be one more showing in the cards for us.  Last week was all about being with the Van Gelders, lots of good nephew time and LOTS of snow.

Coming This Week: December 27th – January 2nd

While our winter break is a bit short this year, it’s not been short on fun.  Last week was a great visit with my family in central Illinois; today we are heading north.  This week we will be with Josh’s big fun family.  For Christmas we decided to skip exchanging gifts with each other and instead attend the January 3rd Bears game in Chicago.  I think that’s the best way to close out our time off before heading back to work.  We will likely be in Indianapolis for most of the month.

Song of the Week: Satellite Radio – Steve Earle, With so many people on the road this weekend I’m sure more than a few are listening to the satellite radio.

Week in Review: After leaving work we had a few quiet days with my folks before the rest of the family arrived, we were able to head out and see Star Wars one afternoon.  There really is nothing better than a matinée, I am betting we will go see the movie again this week.  Lots of good food and good times were shared with my brother and his wonderful family.  We are a small family but fill the house with love.

Song of the Week: Rodney Crowell’s – Sex and Gasoline

Week in Review: We spent most of the week at the office in Detroit, finishing up a little bit of work.  Being that Josh was pulled away the week before to help with a work emergency we bumped all of the plans for my birthday a week.  This week was full of some yummy meals with friends and a fantastic work Christmas party.  All and all is was a blast.  Friday we packed up the car and started our two week holiday blitz.

Coming This Week: December 13th – 19th

While we are spending this week in Detroit, happily finishing up some work for our clients, this is also going to be a week of crazy.  There are parties to attend, chocolates to be purchased, a growler to be filled with beer, and a few other little holiday tasks before we pack up and roll home.  For the first time we are really making the rounds.  The next few weeks will include visits to Dekalb, Mt. Sterling, Dubuque, and Chicago.

Song of the Week: Mama’s Little Baby – Delbert McClinton 

Week in Review: Unfortunately I would like to say we had all kinds of birthday fun last week but Josh was pulled away last minute to help with a work emergency.  Instead we decided to just move everything forward a week.  Since there were already fun events planned for next week, this will just make it better.  However I did get a lovely gift from him, a shiny new Apple Watch!!

Coming This Week: August 30th – September 5th

We have a few days left in Detroit before our mini-cation.  This coming weekend will see us visiting Chicago, the original plan was to meet up with another couple to attend the US vs. Australia rugby match at Soldier Field, but now we are also going to the Bears preseason game!!!  Very exciting.  Next week is slightly up in the air, there is one stop scheduled at Ft. Belvoir in Virginia but after that it’s not finalized.

Week in Review: This turned out to be a fun week.  While in the office we caught up with favorite compatriots, met with the boss man and had a great talk, went to a Tigers game, and attended a little work party.  Not to shaby.
