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…

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…

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?…

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.…

33/52

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,…

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,…

Lots of little events this week: I ordered a home try-on box of glasses frames from Warby Parker My 2019 Mazda finally hit 30k miles I got caught in a thunderstorm downpour I had lunch with the wife and daughter…

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…
