Kids Day in Trying to Hold On

I appreciate the readership and notes! I will try to respond to as much as I can; but also… today is a Juvenile Court Day. That means 12 hearings/trials today to get through in 7 hours. So… it...


Okay, folks… I wrote a Friends Only Entry this morning because I needed to discuss a case. Because I’m super not happy that people in Iowa can say “I was drunk” or “I’m taking medication” and th...


This is even more a Non-Entry than ever as I don’t even feel like writing today. But I’ll keep this page up in case something comes to me. Or something happens. Which is almost certain to mean ...

Poor Start in Trying to Hold On

Today got off to a poor start. Woke up at 4 and felt like something had attacked my tongue! Maybe it is an inflamed taste bud, maybe I chomped it hard in my sleep. I don’t know. It certainly w...


I hope but cannot promise that at the beginning of each month, I will review my Yearly Resolutions and chart where I am. It is another way of keeping me honest, keeping me focused, and hopefully...

Creative in Trying to Hold On

I haven’t spoken to anyone today. I can’t even get my wife to text me back. It is the cold isolated loneliness that Tiny Town turned into an ever present social miasma. I know that it is a tem...


Friday… became a whole big thing. I won’t go into too much detail but I will say: It was very Law & Order SVU. Paperwork flying around at the last minute to try to grab a specific type of e...

AM Grumble in Trying to Hold On

Grumble Grumble This morning has not started out too well. I went downstairs this morning to try to find my wedding ring (not sure where it is :x !) and while I was down there, Nala decided to ru...


Nala… is not learning some important lessons. We are always trying to get her to eat LESS wood chips!! We know she’s teething, we know she enjoys sticks… we give her ice cubes and chew toys and ...

Naght and Diy in Trying to Hold On

The differences between my mornings are stark and I would officially like to blame sleep. And in so doing, somewhat blame other elements but I’d rather simply imply those elements rather than bl...

Baka Of Course in Trying to Hold On

So… this morning I woke up refreshed and ready to do… fun things. My creative juices were flowing and on the drive in to work I was making all these poems and songs in my head. My erotic desires ...


Saturday was the big day! I woke up early but had a lot of quality sleep (per the machine). We got everything packed up and started the drive. Nala… is going to need a lot more car experience. ...


Oh man. It is still early morning hours here and I’m already sick of dealing with people. Granted… 4 hours of sleep doesn’t help that. I have to confess that is something that worries me right ...


FIRST Let’s do a bit of a recap of last night. Which, due to me being me will undoubtedly and invariably spiral off into a self-reflective tangent demonstrating my penchant for over thinking thi...


I rarely struggle with titles. Granted, occasionally I’ll recycle an old title but I never seem to have trouble just… throwing something into that little box and then typing away. I often wonde...


Yesterday was a day. The burning of Notre Dame is bloody tragic and I will say nothing with the intent to do anything but offer prayers and strength to the city of Paris. That being said, after...

Six Seconds in Trying to Hold On

Just a quicker post to prove I’m capable of them. I tend to write long because I tend to think lots and wish to communicate. This is just something quick. Something to say I got through the wo...


… I Want To Get Off. Or to put it all together: Stop The World I Want To Get Off. This title is also the title to a musical with a book, music, and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley. ...


Another day that is expected to be slow. SLOW. Like s l o w slow. So I’ll be reading, writing, and trying to fill the time. Yesterday, I left work at about 3. Got home at about 3:30. Saw th...

High Winds in Trying to Hold On

Windy Day Today My office is not hugely tall… not like a downtown Des Moines Office. Our office is the Old County Hospital that was re-purposed in the 1960’s. So I have a bit of a corner office...


Partially as there isn’t much to say today… I wanted to look into some Pop Culture Discussion Topics and Debate Topics. That being said there may be spoilers herein for Television Shows, Movies...


Went to bed around 11:30. Woke up at 2:30 needing to pee. Dog woke up and got super excited that someone was awake. Would not settle down and go back to sleep until 4. I am super tired. Being...


I’ve seen this meme go around a few times: and I actually want to add and expand the original concept. As this can be used in the following: Why do guys not care if it is a fake orgasm? Why do ...


Boy, I hate Mumunmununsdays. Wish I could just roll out of bed and grab some enchiladas. SO… after MBFITWW left last night the dog calmed down a bit. I think Wife’s absence plus the presence of...

Days in Trying to Hold On

What a weekend :/ Friend came over. Took the dog a long time to get used to him. Wife and I took turns with the dog going out, for walks, and all that. Friend and I tried to talk… Wife was actua...
