  • 2017-09-17 Austin Day 4: Sunday Wake Up

    I woke up at 6AM at the conclusion of a dream I was having about a situation of injustice surrounding a child who did not have a voice of their own to defend what was happening to them. I had been trying tirelessly for hours to plead with the people around him or her to […]

  • 2017-09-14 To Austin!

    Despite getting up ridiculously early, I’m in really good spirits. I’m headed for my home away from home. I’m headed to rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation with my Texas Bestie, Rebecca, and her lively crew. This is my second trip this year, the first being in mid-May. At that time I probably wrote all there is […]

  • 2017-07-18 PNW Day 8 (Part 2): The Traveling Trio

    I spent about an hour this AM in the fitness center at the hotel, which pretty much amounted to a room with a treadmill, elliptical machine, a weight machine, and a TV. I let the kids geek out with their iPads in the room while I got my steps in for the day. I opted […]

  • 2017-07-18 PNW Day 8: Headed Home

    I ended up driving back to Portland last night with every intention of just returning the rental car and staying at a hotel near the airport and taking the shuttle when it was time to go.

  • 2017-07-17 PNW Day 7: Winding Down

    The kids are still sleeping and I had to get up to go put money in the parking meeter. It’s not the most convenient thing to have to do (at 7AM), but since I was awake anyway it’s OK. I’ve slept 8+ hours the last three nights (pharma assisted) but I still don’t feel that […]

  • 2017-07-12 PNW Day 2: Headed for the West Coast

    Today we will not miss the free breakfast at our hotel, the lovely Holiday Inn Express in Troutdale Oregon. After that, I am not sure if we will linger at all around this area or just head for the coast. I’d like to hang out at least long enough to miss morning traffic as we […]

  • 2017-05-29 Denver – Downtown Rooftop Patio is What is Up

    Sometimes I wish I posted pics with my blog so folks could see what I see. A picture is worth a thousand words and I could just post a bunch of pictures and never need to write again. However, that would defeat my purpose. I’m on the 3rd floor patio of Lance’s apartment building and […]
