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, […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

SO Much

A lot has happened in the last week. I turned 35 and feel ancient. No grey hairs yet. But the biggest news? I got engaged! I do not have a date or any other details yet. But yes, I got engaged and I'm pretty happy and excited about it. Considering everybody already thought we were […]

Oh Life

I'm feeling kind of run down, so I'll try to keep this short. One things for sure, my boss is definitely human and as irritated as I was this afternoon with him, being human means you make mistakes. You can't always be perfect. I ended up reassuring him of this and made sure that things […]
