another snow day

18 Jan

Wednesday ended up being another snow day for me, although it probably didn’t really need to be. Oh well. At least I found out before I left for work. I did get out and about a bit; a quick coffee run, and a trip to the leather goods shop to pick up a ghillie that […]

chilling and rehearsing

08 Jan

This weekend was relatively uneventful. By Friday night, I started getting a tickle in the back of the throat and pressure behind the eyes. Argh. It hasn’t been cool. I’ve felt like shit, plus now that I’ve lost all this weight, and it hasn’t gotten above 20°F for most of a week, I’m constantly cold. […]

friday random eleven: “alara, wanna open this jar of pickles for me?” edition

05 Jan

After yesterday’s aborted attempt, I made it into the office this morning (after a two hour delayed opening, which I obsessively checked on six or seven times as I got ready), cracking the seal on that metaphorical jar of pickles. Roads weren’t bad, though my parking lot, as I expected, wasn’t plowed, and there was […]

well, I tried

04 Jan

The metropolitan area got about four inches of snow overnight (my friends to the east got hit a bit harder). It’s cold, and pretty. As I said in my last post, today’s the day I was supposed to go back to the grind after the holiday break. When I woke at my usual 5:10am, my […]

existential crisis?

03 Jan

That’s kind of what my spouse called it anyway. I’m coming to terms with the fact that I’m going back to work tomorrow after two weeks or so away. If you look back at my posts here for (especially) the past year, you’ll notice a theme: I’m not very happy there. The organization I work […]

remembering to take my plant home

11 Dec

Monday is, allegedly* my last “in-the-office” work day for 2017. Tuesday through Thursday, I’m off-site (at that nice training facility around the corner from my house) taking a not-so-exciting three day course on Earned Value Management, as I believe I may have mentioned. This is not something I’m excited about at all, but it’s required […]

friday random eleven – “i wanna solve *something*” edition

08 Dec

Okay then. Not loving life right now. Stress (and depression) is a bitch. As I run down the end of my work year, I’m able to nudge lingering issues forward, sorta, but they never seem to get solved. I’ve got this one issue I’ve been trying to run down since October, and whenever I make […]

two lane blacktop

04 Dec

I spent more than twelve hours behind the wheel this weekend. I have been from one end of Virgina to the other a couple of times, and my back is killing me, even if I did get a chance to catch up on my friends’ podcasts. I’ve been from Richmond to Amherst twice (two hours […]

friday random ten: “training day” edition

01 Dec

This week, all told, has been kinda dull. Solved a couple of problems, saw a few others stall. I had some frustration with the state of the current project management hellscape come to a head on Thursday, but luckily one of my very good, knowledgeable, and understanding teammates/mentor types was in for some other meetings […]

back to the grind…for a few days at least

20 Nov

All quiet on the bloggy front for the last week; as I said, I was in work training last week, and other than a few social media updates, I was kind of out of the writng brainspace, what with all the note-taking and getting up to speed on program management training. The good news to […]
