I wasn’t sick, just fat and unhappy.

March 5, 2011


Recently, I was unemployed (by choice, thankfully… and yes, I do know that I am lucky) for a couple of weeks, but I wasn’t  sitting around eating bon-bons like my former coworkers and I joked that I would.  In fact, I was doing just the opposite. I realized that I need to take control of […]

Is profundity a word? If not, we can go with ramblery.

January 28, 2011


I’m not even going to bother trying to explain the past few months.  It would take years. I’m in the process of moving house.  Not far, which I think makes it harder.  We are moving a little bit southeast of where we’ve lived for the past five years… Closer to Big Cottonwood Canyon. Closer to […]

Productivity is Pretty Great.

A Glimpse Into Another Life

May 23, 2010

Holding Out for a Higher Percentage of Awesome

March 30, 2010


I'm not claiming that my relationship is 100% perfect. We're at about 99.6% awesome at our house. We'd be 100% if either of us truly liked to do yard work.
