winding down

Today has been a fairly normal day. Went to work, did some training there, did some work after the training. After work, I came home and hung out and talked with Han for a bit. He’s got some great projects lined up that he’s really excited about. It’s cool. I made dinner, pork tenderloin and…

day 6 down

Nothing much to report today. Did the 4 drinks with 2 scoops again. It’s weird to say, but when I taste it, it seems familiar now. It’s hard to explain. I got home from work around 6:30 pm, and there was Doug still working. I had already made plans to go to Becky’s place to…

weekend away, stolen dough & forgotten keys

How do the weeks go by so fast? Last Tuesday, I went to Cafe Cabaret for the monthly reading. It went great. Wednesday and Thursday were days that have passed where I did nothing of significance. Probably watched some TV. Han & I are watching “The West Wing.” We didn’t watch it when it was…

March forth

It’s a directive. It’s also Han’s dad’s birthday. I didn’t do much marching today. In fact, I had kind of a tough afternoon and morning. I mean, for mornings, it wasn’t terrible. I had to go downtown for a work event. The event was held on the 34th floor of Symphony Towers – great views!…

AmericanaramA and other events

Hello! Man, you get out of the routine, and it’s hard to get back in! I missed writing when I went up to visit Mom and Dad the weekend of July 19-21, and then it just didn’t happen! Here are some things I did: – On July 26, I went to a poetry slam at…

March 2-3

I had started a very contented post on March 10, the day the time changed. I thought I had saved it as a draft, but it’s gone into the ether of WordPress. I find it ironic that I am the worst at keeping up my blog. My sister, my mom, my aunt, and my dad…

full-swing summer

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous in San Diego, and today was no exception. I went to a movie this morning called “Safety Not Guaranteed.” I love finding movies that are not in the mainstream. This movie starred Aubrey Plaza (from “Parks and Recreation”) and Jake Johnson (from “New Girl”). It was pretty good. I…

wheels

My immediate family knows, but now the rest of you (3 people, maybe?) can know that Han & I are owners of a new (used) car! It’s a 2010 Dodge Avenger and it’s awesome. We got it at Carmax, which is like the WalMart of car dealers. That is to say, neither of us felt…

beginnings of unwritten blog posts in my head

– DK’s room is finished and I must give her credit on the color selection.  Han & I thought it would too dark, but it totally works.  I’ll post before & after pics soon. – Had a fun time at the house concert.  This guy always has such a great spread in the green room….

what’s in store

I’ve made a couple updates to two of my other pages.  I changed “Reading…” to “Books” and changed “Listening to…” to “Flicks.”   Check ’em out if you’re so inclined. I’ve also taken some time to put together a few lists.  Like my sister, I’m a big list-maker.   So I have a 2009 Goals list, a…

goodbye 2008

So this year sucked in a lot of ways. Every year always has its ups and downs but this year seemed like every time there was an up, the down was like a swift kick in the gut followed by a pummeling that left me exhausted for weeks. As so many other blogs are doing…

time to write

It’s tough for me to find time in the morning to write.  And in the evening, well, I’m not too inspired. So my dilemma tonight is when to create time to create. I write this at ten ’til midnight after falling asleep on the couch.  That’s the other thing.  I just get tired at night….
