The Evasive Sleep

Sleep has evaded me this weekend.  No matter how tired I feel – how much my body is saying, “sleep will make you feel better” – my mind, I’m guessing, is keeping me awake.  I end up sleeping in fits and starts, then find myself awake for several hour stretches in the middle of the…

Combative…..or at least that’s how my immune system feels right now. There is a crud going around the office, and it has caught three of us so far. I would still be at home today if it weren’t for the fact I have an interview with a possible boss replacement today. Had he not flown…

I honestly don’t know if I should laugh or cry about this week.  I don’t know if there is something in the air or what, but damn. Let me give you a run-down: After being encouraged to apply for the CIO position at work, I am not experienced enough. I’m good enough to back fill…

Motivational Monday

Continuing last week’s Motivational Monday that’s a little different, I am going to recommend the following: iAmMoshow is a rapper. Okay, he is a college graduate with a computer science degree who fell in love with a girl who had a cat – and he discovered that he loves cats too.  Fast forward to today…

One Goal Beyond

Regular readers of my blog know that this time of the year can involve soccer.  Okay, most of the summer can involve me talking about soccer.  Just not men’s soccer – women’s professional soccer or the NWSL.  Specifically, I like to talk about the Portland Thorns which is my favorite team.  This season, I must…

An Interesting Turn of Events

He had mentioned that a friend’s mom had dragged him to thrift shops, and he found he enjoyed it.  Did we know of any, he asked.  At the time, we mentioned we knew of a few places.  Could he come along next time? Sure, we promised. Then that was that.Fast forward to last Saturday. I…
