Facing Facts

I give up. This is not said in defeat, frustration, or with any negativity. I'm just facing facts. This is either the third or fourth time I've had to post on here to try and explain a long absence. The usual excuses apply. But this time is different - this time I've realized that as much as I enjoy... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm not the Weird One

At work on Friday, The Boss brings in coffee from Tims and we take a few minutes to chat. It's an unofficial ritual, one that everyone enjoys. It's a chance for me to chat with the field staff, and for everyone to forget the schedule and just be buddies for a moment. It's always my favorite part of... Sign in to see full entry.

An Ode to A.

Last week, I found out that my very best friend, A., is expecting her first child! They've been trying for over two years and had almost given up the dream of starting a family, so this is VERY welcome news. She's still in the very early stages, only 4 or 5 weeks, and isn't "officially" announcing... Sign in to see full entry.

Making Friends

I accidentally started an argument online earlier today - not that it's particularly hard to do, these days. Someone had posted a comment on a post, stating that "no studies had been done to show that vaccines did not cause Autism". I responded by posting a link to 75 different studies who concluded...

Yes, Ma'am!

Pat_B recently mentioned that she gets called ma'am by young people (I believe the term "snot-nosed kids" was bandied about). I recently had a conversation with my mother-in-law about this term, and Pats' post brought it all back again. Both Pat and my MIL seem to find this offensive, like it's...

Weekend Bliss

I think my favorite thing about weekends is that first cup of coffee. During the week, the morning is all about routine - I don't have to think, my body knows what needs to be done. The first cup of coffee goes into a travel mug, and is sipped on the way to work. But on the weekend, that first cup... Sign in to see full entry.

No Excuses

I could tell you that I haven't posted in so long because I've been too busy, with work and renovations, with family and friends, and gaming and reading, and all the little things people do to fill their days. I could tell you that I haven't posted because I couldn't think of anything to write, or... Sign in to see full entry.

Renovation Lesson #2

With the demolition complete, it was time to take stock of the state of our basement. We knew about a number of problems, but there are some things you can't know until walls start coming down. We knew that the furnace and hot water tank would need to be replaced and had already hired an HVAC... Sign in to see full entry.

Winter Bliss

I had planned on writing about phase two of our renovation project today, but I just can't seem to focus my thoughts. It is currently -21C here (that's about -6F) with a windchill hovering closer to -36 (or -33F). Whether you speak in metric or imperial, that temperature translates to COLD! It's...

Renovation Lesson #1

Our renovation started with a bang. Several of them, actually. Knocking down walls, while satisfying, is a loud and messy business. On day one, Demolition Day, we invited our friends and family over. Instead of the traditional House Warming party, we hosted a House Destroying party, and everyone who... Sign in to see full entry.
