There is nothing like fall in Boston! I was there on Weds and Thurs (to defend my thesis- which was successful by the way) and the weather was beautiful, the city looks great, and their sports teams are just fantastic! With the Red Sox winning the World Series and the Pats 8-0, what could be better? I haven't been to a Sox game in a few years, but I walked around by Fenway before Game 2. The Cask'n Flagon has been remodeled and Brookline Ave looks squeaky clean. Maybe I should think about doing a post doc there...


Big Girl Bed

m slept in her own big girl bed for the first time last night. She slept through the whole night and didn't fall out! Hurray! A little bribe with some Jack-o-lantern stickers didn't hurt and made the first night in her new bed a success!!

We just got back from a weekend in SC with M's grandparents. They were in good spirits but I could tell they are on the decline, healthwise. CT fell over trying to sit down after pulling weeds out in the pasture. It was 85 degrees, so I probably would have felt light headed too. GG got really upset and started crying. I think she's feeling helpless and fearful and I wish there was something we could do. But, I feel like I would be out of place trying to say something or interfere.
