I have written you only once since January 2019, and that was back in March of this year to discuss academic changes that I was in the process of making. There have been a LOT of other changes since post #610. This is going to be a hastily thrown together post that’s essentially a collection… Read More #612 – New Website, New Me
So it took me half the month to get here, but let me catch you up on things. The trip to Florida went well. I got to see family I hadn’t seen in a long time, we had some time in the hotel room on our own so we didn’t have to be “on” all… Read More #603 – Hello 2018! and Taking a Stand Against Racism
This will be my last post this year. I am packing for a flight to Orlando to spend some time with my wife’s family for a few days. We leave very, very early in the morning so tonight’s post is going to be short, but important. One of my first posts of 2017 was on… Read More #602 – Goodbye 2017!
Today was a fantastic day. I got to spend the afternoon with one of my favorite people, and when I picked my wife up from work found out that she had an even better day after a conversation with her supervisor. The evening’s been spent lying in bed and goofing off on the computer. I’ll… Read More #601 – What a Lovely Day
A little while ago, maybe a couple weeks, I honestly don’t remember, I applied to be part of a 23 and Me research study into the genetics of patients with depression and bipolar disorder. In exchange for me participating in several surveys over the coming months, they would send me a complimentary genetics testing kit… Read More What’s In My DNA?
Today was the funeral service for my father-in-law. We expected there to be some family drama but there was hardly any, and the service was very nice. We survived intact. My wife did tear up during the service, as both she and I expected, but it was brief. I expect that at some point it’ll… Read More Rest in Peace
My wife and I are in Phoenix preparing for the funeral of her father. The service is tomorrow morning, and today we’ve been taking it easy, trying to avoid the 107-degree heat outside. We had breakfast with my wife’s mother, and in the afternoon my wife’s brother and his family came over to enjoy the… Read More Calm Before the Storm
I had a meeting today with Texas Workforce Commission regarding my action plan. We’re looking to potentially upgrade it to another educational program, but I’m getting mixed messages about things again, so I insisted that I get two weeks to do my due diligence this time and not get rushed into yet another spur of… Read More Long Day
Today was mostly another take-it-easy kind of day. Tomorrow absolutely won’t be, as we have to pack and make it to the airport, plus I have an appointment a couple hours before we’re due to head out for our trip, so things are going to be crazy. I’m going to be looking forward to getting… Read More Still Saving Spoons
Today was my wife’s last day at work until the 17th. We’ll be attending her father’s memorial service in Arizona next week, and she wants time at home both before and after the trip. I can’t say as I blame her. She’s processing things as best as she can, although today seemed like it was… Read More Keeping On
