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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Normal Week’s Stress Compressed

Last week… felt like a whole month. Monday, the government shut down for the second half of the day (as compared to my normal work schedule). However, things did not go as expected. We were provided with one set of instructions on Friday. Pretty much, plan to be furloughed. So when everyone came in Monday […]

Future Unknown

The immediate future at least. I’ve survived a second week of class and I am exhausted. I am trying to debate if I want to stay up to see if my home government can get their crap together. That’s why I was referring to a future unknown. If we fail to pass the budget, I […]

Dear Jet Lag

You will not get the best of me. But, man, 3 hours difference from my usual time zone is really throwing me off. I feel for those that came from overseas (Europe in this case) because I would be even worse for wear. I traveled this weekend and am now at a class for the […]

Simple Small Things

I usually post a what I accomplished in 2017 with a what I hope to accomplish in 2018. I’m choosing not to do that this year in favor of just highlighting some small projects that I’m working on for myself. Like, I’m going to make a tremendous effort to write in a journal every day […]
