best of times, worst of times

06 Jun

So, first off, Concarolinas was awesome. Both bands had some decent shows, and I got to make lots of great music with my friends. It was tiring, but a really good tired. After a day of rest (always take the day after the con off of work…trust me), I went back to work today. I […]

minor musical crisis….averted

25 May

So this happened Tuesday evening when I sat down to run through a few tunes: As I was tuning up the guitar, I grabbed the tuning machine for my D string, and the knob fell off in my hand. Surveying the damage, I noticed the whole thing was slightly bent out of shape; I don’t […]

not this shit again

24 Apr

I had a pretty decent weekend. The kid totally rocked the prom with her vintage dress, the post-prom “event” at my place didn’t result in the teens trashing my house (thanks kids), my favorite farmer was at the farmers’ market on Saturday morning to sell me some awesome produce, I had a successful practice session […]

friday random eleven: “feeling good enough to wax philosophical about my place in the ensemble” edition

14 Apr

it’s Friday, which is nice. Actually the outlook around these parts is not awful. Thanks to the nice weather, and let’s face it, the the dosage adjustments from the doc, I’ve been feeling a lot better; it’s not that the world or work or anything has gotten less uncertain or threatening – that’s about the […]

talking weekends through the fourth dimension

12 Apr

My weekend finally ended last evening. I took a couple of days off to support a couple of commitments and to maybe, sort of, get a little bit of rest here in the early spring. That last bit didn’t quite work, but I got stuff done. The big event was the trip to Sweet Briar […]

i just need an answer

28 Mar

As much as I hate talking about work in this space (this is, in my mind, isn’t really the place except in generalities, though I end up doing it quite a bit), a lot of stuff from the office side of my life is really weighing me down lately. Regular readers will remember that I’ve […]

weekend positivity round-up

13 Mar

You might have noticed there wasn’t a regular report on Friday. That’s fine; I was just off the internet, which is something you have to do now and then. My weekend was actually pretty decent; I got stuff taken care of on Friday (including getting the eldest a pretty awesome prom dress for almost nothing), […]

project positivity: thursday

09 Mar

Today wasn’t altogether bad either, at least so far (and as it’s past six and my dinner is cooking, I’m calling it a day). The fact that I made today my Friday helped a bit. I had a productive work session with my team at the office, wrapped up all my paperwork, answered a few […]

project positivity: wednesday

08 Mar

Today was actually pretty good day. Work was generally good; my 10am meeting was cancelled, which was wonderful, because it’s always a slog, and we’d spent two hours yesterday in an ad-hoc meeting discussing the same project anyway. I also spent some more time running some more numbers on my interminable budget nightmare, and proved […]

directive: attain positivity

06 Mar

Looking back at my post titles from the last couple of weeks, it’s pretty damned depressing. It is kind of depressing right now; to be honest, and I really, truly could use a win right now, however small. That said, I’m going to try to remain positive. To that end, I’m going to try to […]
