Summer Recap

The last couple of months have been pretty active for me and I haven’t really written about anything overly personal in months. Figure it’s about time to mend that.

June was Pramas’s 40th birthday. I threw him a party, saw a bunch of old friends and had a really nice time. The following week I [...]

Where did April go?

Wow, I’ve definitely been AWOL on the blog front for the last several months but April has to be the worst blog month in my history of blogging!

I suppose it all started back in 2008. Many things popped up to cause me stress and anxiety last year. There were multiple family health problems and [...]

Around Here

My mother’s called me several times in the last couple of weeks, usually to talk about things like what Kate wanted for her birthday or to check to make sure the package she sent arrived (she was permanently scarred after the UPS store sent my package with my grandmother’s ring in it across town). After [...]

Family Weekend

Saturday I awoke feeling much more human, especially after getting myself up to normal Seattle-style caffeine levels for the first time in a week. Mmm, delicious coffee.

After a busy but very fun PAX schedule, I spent Labor Day laying low and doing little more than combing through recipe books and magazines so I could make out a menu plan and go grocery shopping once I get paid. Since Kate came back to Seattle two weeks early, needing school clothes and supplies [...]

Busy weekend

Kate and Pramas and I were in Portland over the weekend. I crashed the Canby High School Class of ’88 reunion, even though I moved to Minnesota in my Freshman year, and reconnected with several of my junior high school friends, visited with my brother for the first time in a year and a half, [...]

Fewer To Dos

I’m slowly making it through the To Dos on my list. I did a reasonable job of preparing for the summit, though I didn’t have as many charts and graphs as I would have liked and I failed to flog my employees into complying with my requests for a new podcast or a new staff [...]

Back from Ely

Grandpa and Grandma Originally uploaded by Nikchick.

I didn’t blog much about my plans for Minnesota on the off chance that my grandpa might hear about them somehow. Unlikely as that was, I knew that if I didn’t say anything I couldn’t screw things up. You see, several months ago my aunt and uncle [...]
