Miscilaneous notes on a cruise
Friday, September 24, 2010      9 comments

Last week my husband and I went on our first ever cruise, with friends who had also never been on a cruise before. I hadn't been sure what it would be like, especially since none of us are really resort kind of people. But we had a terrific ti... Read more
Home Again

Just wanted to stop by briefly, as I'm really tired. I'm home again. I'm sorry that I wasn't around much lately; it's been a very busy summer. Hopefully I'll be around more often now, though it will take me a long time to get caught back ... Read more

First.... Tooth update (sorry to be so obsessed with my stupid teeth, but they hurt so it's hard to think of anything else) After nearly 2 weeks after I broke my tooth, and it was still hurting a lot. Friday I broke down and called the d... Read more

Growing up, we had a saying, especially when we were trying to get a bunch of us out the door for a trip.... "We're off! Like a Thundering Herd of Turtles!" Herding my family (and now my friends) is a bit like herding cats... Eventually we... Read more

Some quick updates: I broke my tooth late Tuesday night. Unfortunately, it's not the tooth with the rootcanal as I had thought, but the tooth behind it. Today I go in and he's going to try to fix it. Hopefully he'll be successful and I'l... Read more

I'm home again, at least temporarily. I'm really tired, and I still have a bunch of stuff I need to bring in from the van, and tons and tons of things to do (including a mountain of laundry) and all I want to do is take a long hot shower and ... Read more

Thank you, everyone, for your kind words of support, prayer, and advice. It helps. I'm feeling somewhat better. I'm still tired, sore, and fighting off the stubborn remnants of a headache (hormones+stress+allergies=one nasty headache, unf... Read more
Stress update....
Tuesday, July 27, 2010      5 comments

Good news is that I contacted my department chair and it sounds like it was I had hoped it would be---a question of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. So it sounds like I'm still on track and back on the same page. I couldn... Read more
Stress Management
Saturday, July 24, 2010      10 comments

It is kind of ironic that I was talking to a friend of mine recently about stress--the last couple of weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster emotionally to begin with, but yesterday I got bad news regarding my degree (don't really want to go ... Read more
TV messages?

We borrowed the first season of Bones from a friend of mine and started watching them over the weekend. It's been fun and it's nice to actually watch the shows in order, since the ones on the television seem to be all over the place and it can ... Read more

Wow. Who knew? There are tons of amature videos of SCA fencing on-line. I don't know what Kingdom these are from, so specific rules may be different, but it gives you an idea. For those of you curious about SCA styled fencing.... Tavern... Read more

workout update
Friday, July 09, 2010      5 comments

Just a quick update to say that the sun came up and I went rollerblading. Normally I would have taken music, but it wasn't bad without it, especially since the pavement was rough and I was in the street (low traffic, but still had to watch out ... Read more
Stupid hitch
Friday, July 09, 2010      7 comments

I feel like an idiot. I left my ipod at my friend's house--and she doesn't live locally, so the earliest I will be able to get it back is on Saturday, maybe not until Tuesday. I skipped the gym yesterday because I just couldn't bring mysel... Read more
