This week’s lack of much to post about brought to you by: studying for two finals and finishing a research paper. I did have a wonderful anniversary celebration with the wife this weekend though. We celebrated our 26 years of…

Short week of work because I took time off for Thanksgiving. We all drove down to North Carolina to visit my dad, aunts, and uncles. It was a reeeeal long drive on Wednesday, but worth it to see everybody on…

This week really flew by. Busy work (again), busy school (again), and just a lot of little things happening around the home front too. We had an all-hands meeting at work. One of the other managers and I hosted for…

Lots of focus on work and school this week, so I mostly just unplugged in the evenings. The wife and I have been getting up early to do longer walks with the dogs, so I’ve been physically tired as well.…

If you didn’t read my last post, I had a WordPress emergency. I’ve gotten it back to about 90%, but the most recent images are in a strange state. I have to decide what (or if) I want to do…

I’m really enjoying the Fall colors this week. Fall is my favorite time of year and October is my favorite month. The wife, the son, and I picked up some Philz coffee and went for a walk through Four Mile…

TV recommendation: The Rehearsal

Look, I don’t know how to explain this show. In fact, I think it defies explanation. But I am telling you that you NEED to watch it. The Verge sums it up like this, “[T]he basic premise of The Rehearsal is that…

Unlike last week, this was a pretty busy week. Work and school were pretty typical, but we did a lot at home. My birthday was last week, so the family spoiled me with presents and cake. We got to go…

Just a regular old week of work, school, and home life. I made French onion tater tot casserole this weekend, which was a hit because there were no leftovers. We went for a nice walk through Four Mile Run in…

Busy week of work. We’re re-focusing on some of the basics and trying to get everybody on board with some of the changes happening around the office. I love the direction we’re going and I see our team being very…

This week was simultaneously long and went by quickly. I guess it *felt* long during the week, but when looking back it went by quickly. Lots of business at work and home. At home we have a couple projects in…

Not a whole lot happened this week. Work, homework, and lots of coughing (allergies or COVID remnants or a combo). My boss came out to our area this week, so we had a team lunch and a good strategy meeting…

My wife is an elementary school teacher. She’s currently in her 12th year of teaching in our county. Before that she was a preschool director and a Child Protective Services (CPS) social worker. Clearly she loves helping and guiding children.…

I had my second aggravating trip to the DMV this week. I bought my car at the end of the lease. The leasing company didn’t add the new loan company to the title. So I have to go through that…

First and foremost, this is my 100th post in the 100 days to offload challenge. I looked back at the first post which was dated April 2021. However, I had actually migrated all those posts from another site I was…

The son and I went to see Rogue One at the IMAX theater in Tyson’s Corner. It was re-released for an anniversary and it was amazing. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed that Star Wars movie. And on IMAX?…

Back To (Semi) Normal

I had my first negative COVID test last week, twelve days after my first positive test. I was laid up for almost a whole week, then worked from home the second week because I would tire easily. I’m now on…
