Short Oregon Trip

In September, we took a short trip (exactly 3 days), to visit my father and his future wife. I haven’t seen him in about 8 years and was extremely nervous for the most part. I took the Fiance with me as a way to get him introduced to that part of the family. The trip […]

A Week For Myself

With how busy things have been between family and work the last four months, I haven’t taken much time for myself. Not from a vacation standpoint. So, I took this week off. It’s something I think is important to do. The last few times that I’ve had time off, it was for something that was […]

Four Months? Oops!

Well, almost four months. I needed to unplug. I couldn’t necessarily unplug as much as I wanted too, but not feeling obligated to write and share things felt nice. Did a lot happen? Yep. And I’m not even sure where to start, or if its worth back tracking to explain things. There were weddings, life […]

Paint Nite – Polar Bear in the Night?

I am making up the name of the painting because I cannot for the life of me remember it. We’ve talked off and on about participating in a paint nite, so I finally said, why not. The first step was getting tickets. Now we think we’d like to do this at least once a month, […]

Rubber Duckies!

This has been a fairly productive weekend. We’ve been working on cleaning the rooms out from our house rearranging project (two trips to charity so far). We’re nearly done with downsizing things to more realistic methods. We also spent a lot of time outside on Saturday because this last week has been the Golden Days […]

Let’s Try This

I never seem to plan things accordingly when I get ready to start on a new project, so I found myself having some fun with this new template builder, managed to reset everything in my database (and lost all of my images as a result). It’s going to take me a bit to rebuild the […]

A House to Ourselves (Also Umbreon)

So, life has been interesting. This week, I learned that I do not know how to handle the types of stress I’ve been handling. Or I mistakenly thought I had a handle on my stress, when in truth, I really don’t and it’s causing me some hesitation and making me wonder if I should seek […]

Never a Chance to Rest

Things haven’t really slowed down for me since we got back from our little trip at the end of last month. So, I know I talked about not getting the supervisory position, but what I didn’t mention was that I’ve been job shifted (with choice, I wanted this). I get to learn about Air because […]

Crammed Pack and Busy

The end of May snuck up on me before I realized it. I spent it down in my fiance’s neck of the woods, meeting family, friends, and doing all of the sight seeing. So, I got in Thursday evening and then Friday we hit Universal Studios in Orlando. It was amazing. We explored two of […]

My Motivation is Slow and Lacking

I did not realize until I was checking comments that I have not bothered to write here in nearly a month and a half. I don’t even know where April went to… it was blink and gone. May is starting to feel the same too. Like my days have been merging into a muddled mess. […]
