PMP’n Ain’t Easy

For the first time since <year redacted> I’m taking a standardized exam. I used to *rock* these. As in studying not one whit and getting 99th percentile. Passed the bar on the first try. So the last couple of years I’ve been flirting with… Continue Reading “PMP’n Ain’t Easy”


So four weeks ago I broke my leg and ankle (in two places)! This put a stop to everything for a bit. I had surgery and am back home. I have a knee scooter thingy. It is a lot quieter than the walker. On… Continue Reading “Update”

Waconda Forever

It’s been a week. Had a cold, which in this time of stupid pandemic tricks, is terrifying. But never had a fever, just chills and sweats and general crappiness. So we went to Lake Waconda for my birthday.

Getting Lost

We decided to have a weekend out with COVID precautions. Road trip off the beaten path, and staying at an Airbnb. It was lovely to get out of the house, and we came into contact with people four times total (potty stops).

Road Tripping in a Pandemic

We’ve been good. We’ve stayed in, worn masks, I haven’t hugged my parents since March. But the Husband’s birthday is this weekend, and I usually plan an event rather than give a gift. We’ve gone to a beer and cheese tasting, on a surprise… Continue Reading “Road Tripping in a Pandemic”
