Redskins for Brady!

I threatened Lorenzo that I would blog about the Redskin's need to draft Brady Quinn in the draft, so now it's real. Of course, it's sweet for me, because even though I lost Alex to the Cowpatties, my Meghan is a Redskin's fan. As a matter of fact, she can sing Hail to the Redskins almost as well as she sings The Fight Song.

Well, Happy November everyone! I guess I should say Happy Thanksgiving, as we are fast approaching my favorite holiday. It's been a crazily busy fall. Alex just received his 2nd report card of second grade and he made the A Honor Roll, again. His soccer season finished at the end of October with more wins than losses and a few goals for Alex. He is doing great. I can't believe he'll be 8 years old in a week. It's amazing how fast kids grow.

Meghan is doing well. She continues to amaze me day after day. Besides her singing of football songs, she has been busy learning the alphabet and working on her manners in school. She is coming along quickly.

Lorenzo is about to finish another round of night shift and we are looking forward to getting him back to a normal sleep pattern. I have finished my travel for 2006 and am so happy to be home for the remainder of the year.

We are going to be celebrating Thanksgiving in our new house. We moved in 3 weeks ago and are still putting everything in place, but we really love the new house. Lorenzo's office is much bigger than his previous room. As a matter of fact, we are looking for furniture just to fill it out. Of course he is more excited about his media room, but it will be a while before we're ready to put that together. I think he dreams of it anyway, as I see him collecting every electronics store ad he can find.

On the other news front, I am getting a new job in January. I'll soon officially be the Director of Sales: Emerging Markets. To Cadbury, Emerging Markets means Casual Dining in my case. So that means my team and I will be out at great places like Gloria Jean's Coffee Shop and Panda Express trying to establish distribution for great brands like Snapple, Orangina and Nantucket Nectars. In addition, it makes me one of the two most senior women in our sales force. Exciting, isn't it? Anyway, I get a company car again, and boy am I looking forward to that. The CRV has been a great car, but the miles are piling up on her. It'll be nice to be rid of that additional monthly cost.

Well, that's about all the new news. I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and don't eat too much!
