Quite a busy week. It started off with a sick cat. We found him in the closet, laying on his side in a puddle of his own urine. The vet wanted to send him to an emergency vet for x-rays,…

My Mostly Magnificent Miscellany 001

Inspired by Tim Ferris’ “5-Bullet Friday“, I decided to start sharing some of the random crap … er, content that has taken my attention. I’ll try to make this a regular feature because maybe you’ll find something interesting here too!…

I own a Mazda CX-5. I bought it new in 2019 and it’s been a great car so far. Gets me to-and-from work easily. Has lots of bells and whistles. Didn’t break the bank. Etc. I still daydream of a…

The wife, the daughter, and I saw “Six” at the National Theater this week. What a crazy fun show. Based on the lives and wives of Henry VIII, but in a super artistic and modern way. The music was great,…

It’s official, I love Maine. The wife, “kids”, and I took our first real vacation in a year and a half. All our other time off and trips have gone to visiting sick family, funerals, or ended in a devastating…

The wife was out of town all week. So it was just the kids, the dogs, and I. She was in Williamsburg doing a teacher “conference” and learning stuff. The daughter drove down on Thursday to do the tour and…

Quite the week. Work and home were fine, but the supreme court ruling on Roe vs Wade (which we knew was coming) finally dropped. I’m disheartened at some of the politically-motivated rulings, but not surprised. Politics has turned into a…

Surprised the family with Crumbl Cookies for dessert this week. Made vegetarian meatball subs (with Beyond meatballs) and they were delicioso! Weather bounced back and forth from hot and humid to cool and crisp. Finished “Maus” by Art Spiegelman. The…

It was the wife’s last week of the school year. I usually help her pack her room and it’s a days long event. This year was the first in many years that she hasn’t had to pack up her whole…

On Memorial Day we visited the DC Mormon Temple (which is actually in Maryland) for their open house. They recently did renovations and before they reconsecrate the temple they open it to visitors. Very interesting. A lot of animal related…

Spent most of the week at a conference. Great information, networking, meals, and NOT in the office. Hee hee. The wife and I visited a local chocolate factory this weekend. We bought a sampler set and had a tasting at…

A mostly uneventful week of adjusting to a normalish schedule again. After a curve, I ended up with a B in my Algorithms class. Huzzah! We went to Cobbler Mountain Ciders this weekend. It was hot, but still fun to…

Hey y’all … I finally finished my eight weeks of hell grad school class. I’m crafting an email to admin with constructive critiques on how to improve the class and issues I had with the class as a working professional.…

Muse is my muse

My last hour physically in the office has found me with no emails to answer, no IMs to answer, nobody knocking on my door, and no phone calls! I’ve actually been able to focus on completing some actual work. Crazy,…

A lot of catching up on homework this week. Work was frustrating and annoying. I muscled through both and am in a much better place now. Celebrated Mother’s Day with the wife and kids this weekend. The rain canceled our…

It was a week. Lots of work, lots of homework. Only one full week left of hell class and then the hell final. It’s going to be a busy week this week making sure I’ve got everything turned in and…
