Monday Monologue #290

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • We had a good race this weekend with our new boats. Even though we already had one we row together, we did not realize how much of a difference having a good new boat would make in the individual events.
  • We had a great anniversary celebration on Sunday. It’s hard to believe that its been thirty years. Where did the time go?
  • I did cut the grass this weekend despite being busy racing and celebrating our anniversary. Having a lawn mower that can power through wet grass without bogging down is very handy when we have things to do.
  • I updated the version of WordPress which powers this site yet again. The authors keep adding to it. But, despite the frequent updates, whatever is broken seems to stay that way.

Monday Monologue #87

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • I received the rebate in the mail this past Saturday for a submission I sent toward the end of last month. Unusually they take several months. This one arrived in much quicker. I was surprised by pleased.
  • We had a GREAT anniversary weekend. This weekend was much better than last so we’re glad that we decided to have our celebration now rather the weekend before. It will be a few years before it falls on a weekend again. The wife looked fabulous!
  • We’ve got a lot of cool new things the past few weeks. It’s amazing how much things improve. We definitely should replace and upgrade stuff more often. Just because something is still working doesn’t mean that it works nearly as well as something newer.
  • Today is also a day to commemorate those who served. They have done whatever we’ve asked of them and don’t get the recognition they deserve very often.

Monday Monologue #34

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • The Wife and I recently “celebrated” our 25th wedding anniversary. Celebrated is in quotes since we’re both still sick and will not be having our customarily super-expensive dinner until this coming weekend. But, we did spend some time in the pool and, of course, do “other” things.
  • The Wife and I are learning how to row this summer. So far, we’ve both avoided flipping the boat and getting wet. It seems like it will be fun once we get the hang of it. And a great way to exercise. Right now, we’re too focused on mechanics to enjoy our surroundings; but, we hope to become more relaxed.
  • Once again, our Keurig coffee maker is not working properly. And, when we need coffee, we need coffee. So it looks like we’ll be buying a new one. Update: We got a replacement. Hopefully, this one will last longer than the previous one.
  • Our hearts go out to the people of OKC who were affected by the events on Monday. Especially the parents whose children never came home from school.
