So DEFINITELY Business As Usual Then

August 17, 2021

So Fred essentially bypassed us, Grace is in the process of completely bypassing us, while Henri dances off-shore with no real chance of coming anywhere near us, so I’m hopeful we’ll have a couple of weeks peace before the next storm I’ll need to keep an eye on. In other words, pretty much business as usual around here for this time of year.

And despite all that, I’m still have difficulty explaining to some people that not only is this normal, it’s normal for me to accept this as normal.

And That’s What’s Really Going To Matter For The Next Few Days

August 12, 2021

So how am I doing? (Aside from being annoyed at life, I mean.)

As I predicted/feared . . . I don’t know.

Some of my signs are good, and some of my signs, while not bad, are decidedly less good, so I think I’m almost fully recovered, but I’ve been there before, you know?

If nothing else, I’m well enough to get us prepped for our first Tropical Storm of the season, so there is that.

I’m Still Behind The Curve On Other Improvements, But They’re Happening Too

July 22, 2021

Well . . . it’s happening slowly, but it is happening.

I’m getting better at goofing off.

And I’ll Be Taking One Half-Day Off

June 11, 2021

And after some delays, my son and I are officially done with school for the summer. To celebrate, he’ll be taking the first of many days off for a while.

Feel Free To Tell Him If He’s Wrong

April 5, 2021

Well it wasn’t easy, but my son and I put in our overtime last week and wrapped up our course on the Roman Empire.

In honor of this, I shall commemorate the moment with the Latin phrase, “Felicitas est parvus canis calidus.”

(That means “Happiness is a warm puppy,” at least according to Charles Schultz.)

I’ll Talk To You Then

April 2, 2021

My mood remains unchanged from yesterday, but I’m going to use the (true) excuse that I’m very busy today because my son and I working overtime to wrap up our current studies so we can take some time off next week.

No Joke

April 1, 2021

I’m just not in the mood to be funny today, which is ironic when you think about it.

I’ll Talk To You Tomorrow

March 23, 2021

I’m in an odd mood today, and what I was originally going to post here seemed particularly overblown upon review. The basic topic was about recognizing limits, and think I’ll take that to heart and recognize that today my ability to effectively communicate is sharply limited.

L’s Mother’s Only Response To My Horror Was “I Thought You Looked Fine.”

March 2, 2021

So for two years in a row now L’s Mother and I have remembered our anniversary, but I’m not personally convinced just yet this is the start of a trend because this year’s anniversary was one of those round number milestone ones that people make hard to forget. Regardless, in honor of this we decided to declare an “anniversary weekend” to celebrate (in home), and even scheduled Friday and Monday off to make it an extra long weekend. (Business obligations precluded us for taking the actual date off, so this seemed like a good compromise.)

But I suppose it wouldn’t be our anniversary if something wasn’t forgotten, and today, having properly looked in the mirror for the first since Thursday, I realized I had forgotten to shave to the extent that even the Man of La Mancha production would have sent me home . . .

Happy New Year Everyone!

January 1, 2021

I think I’m going to keep it simple today and leave any pensive musings for next week.
