Some things I noticed this year.
Rather than the usual year-end top ten of fave rave discs or some hopeful, yet unattainable set of goals for the next twelve months, I’ve come up with this simple list of things I noticed over the past year. A new job is exciting. Two new jobs is overwhelming. A new job is terrifying, even … Read the rest of this item

Back at it.
My body didn’t have any problem jumping out of bed around six this morning, but I’m having a bit of difficulty convincing my brain that it should be at work today. As has been the case for the past several years, the company that signs my paycheck is dropping a new catalog immediately after the … Read the rest of this item

Just glad she’s so stubborn.
It’s been a while since I’ve written about what’s happening with my mom. That’s partly due to things going well over the past few days, and partly due to a setback which threw me and my family for a loop prior to that. The thing is, we almost lost her on Boxing Day. Her condition … Read the rest of this item
Picking up the slack.
See what happens when your life gets turned upside down? You tend to forget to keep doing the little things that make the days enjoyable. Things like updating the domain name of the week, for example. I’ve never been one to completely shirk my duty, I just let it slide a bit. That being confessed … Read the rest of this item

Oh, the weather outside is…
Frightful? Not in your life. Joyful. Peaceful. Cleansing. Enough of the grey and brown already. It’s winter for goodness sake and I’ve never been so happy to see it snow. This the first time in ages that a change in weather actually made me smile. Well, that and the fact that the kids have been … Read the rest of this item

Keeping us on our toes.
As if we didn’t have enough current affairs to keep us occupied this week, my not quite two year old nephew decided to liven things up a bit more by taking it upon himself to ingest part of a blown-glass Christmas tree ornament. He’s fine, but my sister isn’t any calmer due to the incident. … Read the rest of this item

No news is good news.
It was a day of pretty much next to nothing new. That’s good. My dad slept at home and had a decent enough rest to sound energetic and chipper when I spoke to him this morning. I went back to work, actually enjoyed a meeting, accomplished a ton of stuff that needed to be taken … Read the rest of this item

At least her feet are warm.
It’s been almost 48 hours since my mom collapsed. Doped up on Morphine, even when she opens her eyes or moves her toes, she may as well be completely asleep. Her blood pressure is up, but not as up as the doctors would like. Her cranial swelling is down, apparently never ballooning to where they … Read the rest of this item
