  • 2017-12-17 Stellar Sunday Stats

    I can hardly believe that two weeks have gone by again already. The closer we get to the end of the year, the faster time flies. This is the second to last status update for the year and I’m quite pleased that I’m holding steady on most things. Sleep.. I’m still getting just shy of […]

  • 2017-12-13 Big News Today!

    I’ve been unemployed for five and a half months. I’ve rested, rejuvenated, and rediscovered a sense of purpose for myself in this life. As of today, December 13, I’m back on the payroll!..

  • 2017-12-05 The Tuesday Transition

    The kids are at their dad’s house and I’m waking up to an empty house, which always feels weird no matter how often I have to go through this transition. I always tell myself it’s going to be good because I can sleep in, but then Tuesday comes and I’m awake around the usual 6:30 […]

  • 2017-12-04 Part-Time Problems

    Monday morning again and my head is full of things I want to put on the to-do list this week. The challenge? Making the job search a priority. Sadly, the issues I had this past with my HVAC, iPhone, and laptop ended up being welcome distractions from what should be my main goal. Despite that […]
