Last week, I was able to attend one of our major conferences of the year. This was the first time I have traveled for work since before Hudson was born and, other than my short hospital stay in January, the first time I have really been away from him at all. And apparently there were no baby steps getting back into it; I jumped right in by spending an entire week in the United Kingdom without Bart and Hudson. Thankfully, everything went incredibly well on both sides of the pond.

Today around midnight Greenwich Mean Time (evening for us in the US), something remarkable will happen. I’ve gotten tons of questions from friends about the Leap Second, which is coming to a clock near you today, so I thought I’d take a moment to discuss the topic and hopefully shed a little light on why it’s interesting and why you should (or shouldn’t) care.

At 28 weeks, I am officially in my third trimester. We have less than three months left until our little guy is due, and I’m equal parts ready for it to be here and content to have a little time left. The second trimester was crammed full of travel, visitors, projects, and general churn which only just wrapped up over Memorial Day weekend. It was great to be busy when I was feeling well, but now our schedule for the summer is looking more relaxed, and I am looking forward to coasting a bit to the finish line.

On the morning of November 10, 2012, Bart and I saw the sun rise one last time from our driveway in Erie, Colorado as we got in our cars and began the three day, 1700 mile trek to our new home in Washington, D.C. Two years used to seem like an eternity, but I still feel “new” to my job, our church, and the area in general even 24 months after our relocation. Nevertheless, a lot has happened for Bart and me since we began this new chapter in 2012.

Bart and I are cheapskates when it comes to watching movies: very, very few films come out that inspire us enough to drop $30 just to watch it. Therefore, we often wait to catch something on DVD or streaming, or we catch crazy early matinees on Saturdays when we can go for almost half price. (Can I just interject here that movies, like everything else, are so ridiculously expensive here in Washington, DC?) This Saturday, we didn’t have a lot planned, and I was in a rare mood to actually cough up a little cash to go see something in the theater. After weeks of being uninspired by recent new releases, I finally decided I would be interested enough in seeing Interstellar to brave a Saturday morning matinee, so Bart and I headed to the theater to catch this brand new release.

They say you can’t go home again, but this week I tried. I had a work meeting that took me to my old stomping grounds near Boulder. This was my first trip back to Colorado since we moved almost two years ago, and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going back to a place I called home for over eight years.
