It's Friday here, and I'm working hard to make sure I accomplish today's goal, so I gotta keep this short. Which, given my propensity for meandering off onto tangents about things like bee pollen and brown sugar Pop Tarts, could potentially prove to be a bit of a problem. Luckily, explaining my Day Four goal … Continue reading Day Four (is kinda about haiku)
Facing my great foe The treadmill fell to my stride Day Three goal, achieved! Not pictured: aforementioned vanquished treadmill Actually Pictured: the socks worn to vanquish said treadmill

I took this earlier, some many hours after their first meeting, and the … Continue reading New Dog Is New, Good Dogs Are Good
Okay, yes, I know. I basically disappeared there for, well, pretty much all of January. We'll talk about that tomorrow. Today I'm just talking about my girl. My daughter wrote and submitted a piece in the Critical Essay category of this year's Scholastic Art and Writing competition. Spoiler alert: her essay won a Scholastic Gold … Continue reading Back Just In Time To Brag
