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…

I still tested positive all week for COVID. Fever was gone, but my head was (is) still stuffy. I also discovered that I tire very quickly. I worked from home Monday and Tuesday and went into the office on Wednesday.…

Well, I did it. I went and got COVID. Two years of dodging the bullet, all while working in a facility with high incidents of COVID. I suppose it was only a matter of time. So yeah, my week was…

Short week of work for me. I took Thursday and Friday off so the wife and I could take a quick overnight trip to NYC. The daughter bought tickets for “Into The Woods” but didn’t want to leave her brand…

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,…

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…
