cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Home, sweet home (posted by Ann)

I am actually home for a full week. Shhh, don't tell, or there will be an emergency somewhere and I'll have to travel!

It is hard to comprehend just how behind I was on everything when I got home from two weeks away. Work was just unbelievable, as was the house, as was . . . well, everything. I had to travel the week after I arrived at home (just one night, but I've never felt less like getting on an airplane). Fortunately, I was able to commute from Long Island to Stamford in style in Ash's new Porsche 911. On the way back to the airport, I commented that he was driving sort of slow, and all of a sudden he was at 100mph. Fun, but definitely bad for the hair!

Last week, I had a meeting I was hosting, so that meant work non-stop along with entertainment, which was great but exhausting. I wound up staying downtown, because working from 6:30 am to 10 pm and then doing almost four hours of commuting leaves you with - well, let's see - four hours for sleep, showers, etc. That doesn't quite work.

Here's my favorite set of pictures from the meetings. Look how professional Gordon looks.

And then look closely at the tie.

To close the meeting, Ash provided us with his stash of gift booze to work our way through. I actually got to taste both Dom Perignon and Cristal, and if you get the chance to choose go for the Cristal. It was much better than the Dom. Who knew?
This week, I am going NOWHERE. Of course, Don is out of town, so things aren't quite perfect, but sleeping in my own bed for 10 nights straight is going to feel miraculous!

So, the reef. Diving was phenomenal, and I have loaded some of the pictures on Flickr so you can click here to see them. I am still figuring out how to make Flickr work, so bear with me, but there are too many pictures for me to post them individually here. When I'm done posting I'll put them in order again and give you another link.
It was truly the experience of a lifetime. I still have stories to tell, but you'll have to wait. Posting about half the pictures took all the time I could give tonight!
Glad you survived the worst of being a flight attendant, Lani, and I applaud you for the luggage diving that you didn't do. Never happened. Stick with that.
Stay tuned, and I'll try to post a few things this week. Let's see - the Shark Story, pictures of the completed Airplane Hanger/Garage . . .
That's right, I said Shark Story.


At 6:10 AM, Blogger Lani said...

Wow. Incredible pictures; I can't wait to see the rest, and to hear the Shark Story, and to see pictures of the completed Airplane Hangar (why do you even try calling it a garage? Hope? Denial?).

Ash's new car looks fabulously fun, and he looks awfully happy in it. And Gordon's tie is hysterical. Boys and their toys, eh?
