Placement in Random

We accepted an offer for a two week-old baby born addicted to cocaine. He’s being discharged from the hospital tomorrow. It’s all surreal right now. I’m not going to let myself get attached and s...

Active in Random

C and I had a lot of talks over the past couple weeks. We decided Saturday that we could fit a crib in the boys’ bedroom, since they really only sleep in there during the day and that’s it. So ye...

Catching Up in Random

I know this was all the buzz a couple months ago, but I finally made it over to the old OD site and I have to say, I am pretty excited for it to be coming back. Also excited I’ll still have my Li...

Job Offer in Random

I got the job I was applying for. It sounds like there were several applicants, so I’m glad to have gotten the position. I haven’t accepted it yet, as I’m taking the weekend to look it over. It p...

I Hate Titles in Random

Still waiting to hear back on the job I interviewed for. I had a second interview on Monday. It went incredibly well. But, of course, with one position to fill and no insights into the other cand...

Awesomesauce in Random

So…big news! I put a very desperate post on Facebook asking for my friends and family to help watch my kids (for money, of course) for a couple days so C would be able to come with me to Seattle ...

Insomnia in Random

I spend all day dragging and feeling so run down, and then once the kids are in bed and the dogs are walked and it’s time to settle down, my mind starts racing and I’m wide awake. And that’s why ...

Is anyone out there? in Random

I lead a very lonely life. I had to make my blogger private for a while, because I was tipped off that someone from my soon-to-be-former company was reading it. It was already a lonely place, but...

Unemployed in Random

I was laid off today. My last day will be July 15th, then two months of severance, then…? I was trying to keep it a secret, but I was already looking for a new job. Not because I had any idea thi...

It's been a while in Random

I’m blogging over at blogger now for my daily, mundane stuff. But I’m alone over there, and I am still reading here, so I wanted to check in. I don’t know where I left off on here. C and I got m...

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but I’ve finally done it. I’m pulling the plug. At least, I’m pulling the plug here. I gave it a shot. I like the community, but people are fading and I’...

Tomorrow is going to be an important day. Important to me, anyway. How important to you? We’ll see. I’m guessing it’s not a very big deal. I started watching The Walking Dead tonight, after a Gil...

Pumpkin show! The traffic was terrible getting there, the parking sucked, the weather sucked, the kiddo slept through most of it, but the food was delicious. Started off with pumpkin chili, as us...

My exam is coming up, in a little under two weeks. I wish I were more prepared for it, but I’ll be happy for it just to be over. Then I can focus on the important things. I’m not sure right now w...

This weekend is the pumpkin show. It’s my favorite time of the year. I eat WAY too much, spend too much money, and it’s usually cold and dreary. Still, it’s the most wonderful day of the year for...

I know that tutoring makes my life difficult, but man…when the kids you tutor rock a quiz or a test because you helped them understand something, that feels really great. Totally makes it worthwh...

I’ve been meaning to get caught up, and once I do, I’ll fill you in on something. And, most likely, no one will hear it, and no one will care.

Another Monday, another long work week ahead of me. Mondays also have the added benefit of being the day the project managers, of which I am one, meet to discuss the ongoing projects. It’s basica...

Is there a point to writing when you’re a few days behind? My life is lacking in interesting material these days.

I slept in for hours today, and it was wonderful. I have something to say, but I’m not ready to say it yet. Stay tuned, I guess.

I stayed late today. I’ve been having a slow time of the year so far and it’s been nice, but October is when things start to pick back up and I’m trying to stay ahead of that. I started this year...

My office ran out of Diet Coke at the worst possible time. I’m about to fall asleep over here. Had therapy today…that’s always a treat.

I had my last lesson with my statistics student, yeah! I’ve decided to no longer tutor statistics. I love the subject, but it’s hard to tutor students who have an attitude of, “what is the use of...

I need to figure out how to get everything done in a day AND get to bed at a reasonable time. These late nights are killing me! It likely isn’t a fixable problem until after my exam, though. Spea...

Happy Monday. Mine was not so happy, and I had a rough day of it. That’s life. My exam is in three weeks and two days. So I guess it’s time to crack down on the studying.
