It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks here on the trax. From DC to TN; a thorough Christmas Eve cross examination, mostly unscathed parental visit, rabid Tennessee squirrel after the pooch, a couple of clutch finds in the Knoxville area, dinner and drinks with a high school friend of Aimee's who also dates my good friend in DC, a tempered drive home, and a full on excorcism after a half day back at work. Yeah, there's probably a good story behind each of those but right now I just don't think I have it in me to go any further into much of it.

I will say that on Monday I got the double whammy (both end) stomach virus that is apparently going around these parts. Heaved so hard I caused internal bleeding, though luckily no neighbors were around to hear me through the walls or else they'd have called the police or something. Tuesday felt like one of the worst hang overs I've ever had and today I'm back at work feeling almost normal again. Christ that was a doozey.

One other notable, my most prized gift for Christmas! Aimee bought me a painting by my friend (and amazing) artist Dave of the Eastern Market Metro station. I'd seen this a while back and had nearly bought it but I've never been able to convince myself to buy much in the way of art, hence my empty walls. The painting is so great and vibrant and I'm SO happy to have it! A big thanks to Aimme and Dave for working that out and if you're in the market for some affordable artwork with some local flavor I HIGHLY recommend my friend Dave's work.

Good to hear you're feeling better, that does sound terrible.

Nice Painting! "Real" paintings in your house is an enriching experience, for home and owner.
