Joelle Investigating

Today's photo is Joelle in the backyard in the plant she seems to love for some reason that is not all that clear to me!

Goodbye My Friend...

For those who may not be aware, I was in a car accident just over a week ago.  It was my first accident and hopefully (knock on wood) my last.  The other driver turned left in front of me after being waved on through stopped traffic (well stopped except for the far right lane that I was in), and my car bore the brunt of the damage.  Car vs. truck didn't turn out well for my car.  It was a low speed crash, but my air bags went off.  Since my car is just over 12 years old, it would have cost more to repair it than it is currently worth, so it is considered a total loss.

I went to retrieve my belongings (those I didn't take with me the day of the accident) yesterday before my insurance company towed it to the salvage yard.  These are some pictures I took as one last reminder.  I am pretty attached to my car.  It was my first car and has always been super reliable.  Though I am lucky to have another car (the car my dad drove), I will miss my Camry.  I already miss seeing it in my driveway.

Trip to Boston

Last week I was in Boston for the Annual AMATYC (American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges) conference. Since my sister also lives in Boston, I got to visit with her over dinner each night. On Saturday afternoon, we decided to take a Duck Tour of Boston as well. Here are some photos I took on the tour...
