I’m a little toasted around the edges this morning, due to the bending of space and time that is otherwise known as ‘Daylight Saving Time ends.’ It’s funny, everyone always talks about how you get an extra hour of sleep, but I alwasy finds myself with an extra hour of day. And yesterday, it felt […]
Today finds me struggling to wake up for work after a grueling weekend (my organization put on an Earth Day event on Saturday that takes up a LOT of energy). Next weekend, my organization is running a garage sale on Saturday and Sunday, which requires a lot of heavy lifting and hauling and moving of […]
Well, after extensively drafting my post on Resolution, then running out of time this morning, and spending the last hour post-dinner on it, I’ve decide to… via GIPHY Whoops. Yeah, it’s just one of those days. Maybe next week. For those of you looking for an agent, Agent Carrie posted a little quiz on her […]
Weekend Update: And Away She Goes!
Various thoughts and musings over the previous week: –A week ago yesterday, we spent the better part of ten hours in the car getting the Catbird back to school. My wife and the Catbird split the driving chores on the way up; I pretty much drove us home. I like driving, don’t get me wrong, […]
How Do I Work This?
Going back to work after a long layoff is tough, isn’t it? I was last in the office on Monday; Tuesday was travel day to pick up the Catbird (about 9 hours of driving round trip, plus having to eat, plus she had one last class so we had to find some errands to do […]
-u-u-u-u-u-u-c-k! Went to bed at one last night, the buzz from a shot of vodka and a White Russian not able to sufficiently dampen the bewilderment of what I had been watching unfold all night on the election map, or quiet the anxiety building over the prospect of a Trump presidency–and Republican control of both […]
And it’s Break Time
As the title says. Lately, I’ve been arriving to blog work late and unprepared–more unprepared than usual, that is. When I’m on a roll, I’ve at least thought about my posts ahead of time. When I’m really on a roll, I’ve put some ideas down on virtual paper. When I start writing about visits from […]
Solstice (and not much else)
Happy Solstice! At least in my particular corner of the world, the sun reaches its zenith, i.e., its greatest distance from the equator, today at 6:34 p.m. In terms of daylight, we’ll have 15 hours, 19 minutes, 33 seconds of it today. Woohoo! I am once again back on submission. My manuscript is in Carrie’s […]
This and That Monday
Another Monday morning in blogland. Yesterday was spent on the road; the Catbird went back to school after a nice month home, and I’m finding that, the older I get, the more long drives wear me out. So, this will be one of those days where I’m just meandering around a bit, as opposed to […]
It’s 4:30 as I write this. I’ve been up since four, awake since three, dealing with a cold that should have been kicked from my system by now, a cold I’ve been dealing with for a week and a day. This is shaping up to be a day where Things Don’t Get Done. Including a […]
