Family time

Overheard in the Giannas house: 

Little brother: how many ounces are in a cup?
 Me: ummm...eight? Hey ma, it's eight right? 
 Dad: and you went to college...

 (Little brother getting ready for first day of school) 

 Dad: I gave you a backpack. 
 Little brother: I'm not wearing a Snap On backpack with a wrench on it.

 (Kristin blogging) 

 Me: is backpack one word or two?
 Little brother: one 
Dad: call Kristin, she went to college.

Pete's first day of 10th grade!

Happy Birthday Coast Guard!

I am proud to say my brother is a member of the United States Coast Guard, (which is celebrating its 223rd birthday today). 
He's stationed in Delaware.
We don't get to see him too often, but he's back in Florida this week!

With my brothers, Peter and William 

Pulled this video from the Coast Guard Compass.

Closest or cleanest

I don't know why I always do this to myself. 
I decide to drink a gallon of water en route to a story that's in the middle of nowhere. 
I swear I thought I was going to pee my pants before the 6:00 news. 
My photographer must have seen the pain behind my eyes because he broke down the truck faster than the lightning that almost killed our live shot. 
"Closest or cleanest," he asked.
I didn't care what the gas station looked like- as long as it had a toilet. 
I must say, the sign outside the women's restroom was...comforting.

Hey, when you gotta go you gotta go.
