Monday Monologue #79

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

  • I had a GREAT day hanging out with the wife yesterday. We went for a run in the park for the first time in ages. Otherwise, we mostly just relaxed.
  • It was 65°F today! Spring weather is finally here! It’s almost time to get the grill ready.
  • Still trying to wrap my head around the fact that our youngest graduates college in six weeks. Our days of being permanent empty nesters are fast approaching. We’re used to it; but, no one being around over the summer will still seem strange.
  • We had EXACTLY the same problem today at work in EXACLTY the same situation as we had a year ago. Despite all of the discussions and emails and we don’t learn anything from our previous mistakes. It would be funny if it wasn’t so serious.

Friday Featurette #78

The Husband and The Wife getting ready for the weekendWhen I was returning from lunch today, someone who works in the same building stopped ambushed me in the parking lot to complain that I bumped the side of their vehicle with my door one day last month when I was getting out of my car. Who does things like that? First, their car is OLD and not in good shape. Second, why wait a month to say something? And third, if their car is that precious, why not park at the far end of the lot where no one would park next to them? I was outwardly polite; but,…

I’m really glad for the weekend and a couple of days away from people like that.

Traditional Thursday #78

The Husband on top of The Wife on top of the new bed set

Everyone is probably watching basketball, so we’re only posting one image today. As you can see, The Wife and I are really enjoying our new bed set.

Good luck to your teams this weekend.

Wednesday Weirdness #78

The rabbit that lives in our back yard managed to not get eaten by the neighbor’s cat over winter and is spending more time hopping around the yard. I don’t really like rabbits. But I HATE cats. And I really, really don’t like the fact that it poops all over our yard while it unsuccessfully stalks the rabbit night after night. Animals do what animals do. But, rude and inconsiderate pet owners don’t make the best neighbors.

Monday Monologue #78

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

  • I updated one if the applications I use frequently to a the latest version which uses a dark theme and monochromatic icons. At first I didn’t like it since it was so different from the old version; but now I’m liking it better.
  • Our youngest is ordering all of her graduation stuff. It will be good but weird having two college graduates. It doesn’t seem like that long ago when they were both in elementary school. Now, in less than two months, “school” will become an infrequently used word.
  • I shaved my head today. I do so every few days; but, recently I’ve noticed that if I don’t do it every other day, it seems “long” and needs cutting. I’ve kept my hair very short or shaved for many, many years; but I never thought that having hair barely long enough to feel with my hands would seem weird.
  • For the first time in a long time, the current weather is NOT news. Hopefully the trend continues.

Friday Featurette #77

The Wife sitting on the bed waiting for The Husband wearing a light blue teddyI’ve been overdosing on basketball so we’re posting this a lot later than usual. I’m not nearly as fanatical as some; but I do enjoy tournament time. Especially when some our favorite teams are teams doing better than expected. Anyway, here is a photo of The Wife sitting on the bed waiting for me wearing a light blue teddy. Always a good way to start the weekend. If you follow basketball, good luck to your teams.

Wednesday Weirdness #77

I received an email today; asking if we could fix something that totally wasn’t our problem and was clearly outside anything we are responsible for or have influence over. In addition to a detailed explanation, I provided a short TL;DR version twice in my reply, once at the beginning and once at the end. Despite that, I’m certain that I’ll have an “are you sure there’s nothing we can do?” response in my inbox waiting for me in the morning. Sometimes, I wonder why I even bother trying to explain things to people whose only response to ask the question again as if something changed during the night.
