Even though I don’t have to be at work until 9:30 am, my son has decided that his wake-up time is 6:45 am.  This may not sound like an ungodly hour to all you morning people who have to show your face in the office at 8 am sharp, but my one compensation for that six years of […]

What I have: A massive headache A sweatshirt to compensate for my office building ‘fixing’ my A/C (Note to self – do not complain about the climate controls again ever, ever, ever.) A generally bad attitude from spending almost 2 mostly wasted hours in the doctor’s office A generally bad attitude from realizing that my […]

I am off on location again tonight and tomorrow.  Thankfully, this is a “quickie”.  Volume has been low enough on this particular study that I can get done what I need to get done with a solid working day.  Which means I fly out to location this evening and fly home tomorrow evening at the same […]

And a quick perusal of the filtered spam tells me this: The internet is all about sex and drugs, but it ain’t […]

So, remember the arthritis-inducing playhouse?  And my commentary on the differences in probable appliance-color-choices between me and Martha?

They are undergoing a consolidation at my son’s daycare.  It was determined that the building housing its sister institution was too worn to warrant repair.  They have given notice to the parents at that site that the daycare will be closing, have moved what staff can be moved over to my son’s facility, and are […]

I have been asked by my SCA friends why I don’t write about the SCA more often.  I don’t, I know, and I really can’t put my finger on why I just don’t feel inspired to wax eloquent about the hobby that has occupied a huge chunk of my non-working hours for well over half […]

I would like to tell you that it is one of those punishments of delayed childbearing, but the ugly truth is that I have had arthritis in my hands courtesy of Reiters Syndrome since I was 25 years old. One would think that over 15 years would be plenty of time to adjust to my […]
