  • 2017-07-01 Welcome to the Second Half…

    … of the year. In January at my sisters wedding I was drunk texting my friend Rebecca in Austin and taking pictures of the reception. I remember thinking how beautiful my sister was in her dress and how happy everyone was and how much fun it was out on the dance floor. At that moment, […]

  • 2017-06-26 A New Buzz in the Air

    Today was an atypical Monday. My nephew is in town from Colorado and he’s about the same age as my son so we all spent the day together playing games and stuff. I had to drive back and forth to CB, IA twice to pick him up from my moms house and drop him off […]

  • 2017-06-21 Still Too Much

    Things have transitioned from “feeling better because the weight of the job stress is melting away” to “oh shit, I have two days left to finish some stuff”. It started at four, now three, now today, waking up at 5AM again, it’s two. TWO DAYS LEFT OF WORK. Today I have to switch gears and […]

Behind that I have feature “X” that is broken and is of utmost importance […]

  • 2017-05-11 On the Move Again

    Today I’m on my way to Austin. I’m visiting my Texas bestie, Rebecca, and her family. Our friend Lance is also going. It will be a good trip.. it always is. We all work from home during the day and then do some fun things on the off hours. As usual I have a ton […]
