I ran some errands, got a pedicure, and voted tonight at Town hall.  I saved the best for last.  #LexingtonMA

MIT Book Fair

Books are $1-2.  I got a cool World Guide - Pan American's travel facts about 96 countries from 1961 for two bucks.

My Halloween

The Kendall Square subway stop.  People get on the subway.  People get off the subway.  It's not going anywhere because of moderate delays due to a switching problem.  and I wait.  #MBTA #commutinginBoston #whatdoesmoderatereallymean #iwouldbereallymadifiwasgoingtrickortreating

Christensen family photos

This is my favorite photo!

Robes & Kim

When I told Robes I wanted him to meet my friend Kim who had lived in my BYU dorm (and it wasn't because I thought they'd get married some day) he said, and I quote, "I don't want to meet your dumb friend."  And a few years later--33 years ago today they were sealed in the Atlanta Temple.  They were married almost 15 years when he died and I think Kim would do it again if she had a choice.  They are best friends, have 3 awesome kids and made a good life together.  #familiesareforever #weallmissRobes #pattonmemories #myfavoritephotoitookthatday

Updated kitchen

I would love to update my kitchen and have talked about it for a while so tonight I went to Home Depot and asked some questions and am going to get a quote.  I told the guy my kitchen was small (after he told me the average remodel is $20,000) and he said, "oh, do you have one cupboard?"  And he didn't ask to see my architectural drawing.  #dontberudetoeporiwilltakemybidnesselsewhere


I was almost out of gas tonight and they were out of regular.  So I went with the less expensive of the two options. #specialgas

Ridiculous and Wrong

I'm talking to you, Home Depot.

I love commuting on the subway...

...and almost wish my commute was longer.  Did I really type that?  Anyway, I always say I can count on two hands how many times I've been delayed more than ten minutes.  After tonight let's make that three hands.  There were switching problems so we were delayed at each stop.  It could have been worse and the MBTA driver was so pleasant and sincerely apologetic (she was delayed too) that it wasn't too painful.  #MBTA #lifeinboston

TBT: the Patton kids

We were probably 2, 6, 7 and 8 in this photo.  When Charles was about ten he asked my mom if she and my dad used birth control (did he even know what that was?!?).  Her reply was, "Charles, if your father and I didn't use birth control you'd have twenty brothers and sisters."  #pattonmemories #thismightbearegram #sorrynotsorry #itsagoodstory
