So fast, so numb

Halfway through training day #2 and I still have no feeling in my right thumb.  I have an appointment with my doctor Friday morning.  Someone has come by my office to make sure my desk is ergonomically sound.  My mouse has been moved to my left hand (which is a bit of a challenge). I’ve […]

I can’t quite put my thumb on it…

We slept in Sunday morning.  It’s so quiet up at Sarah’s parents (their house is essentially in the woods) that both Kelly and I sleep very well when we are up there.  Once we got up, we lounged around for a while, and then Michael made breakfast and the six of us managed to consume […]

Finished with the slide decks (approaching 16 hours)

All of the slides I need to create for the training presentations are done.  The total count of presentation slides for the 3-day training session now stands at 501!  I have also now gotten so good with PowerPoint that I could probably produce a full-length feature film with it. Still have lots to do.  Next up is […]

Work stress

After 10 consecutive days of cooking dinner, I didn’t cook tonight.  I didn’t even eat tonight.  I screwed up.  I had a teriyaki stir fry on the menu, which requires chicken, and we don’t have anymore chicken!  Kelly got away with leftovers, but I just skipped dinner.  I was busy working on a CSS style sheet for a new […]

I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes

The soreness has started and thus commences a week of "soreness" hell that everyone who starts back on a regular workout routine has to go through.  When I got home from work, I took some Advil to help with some of the soreness.  (I also took an antihistamine to  counteract an itchy eye that had snuck up on me.) […]

Time keeps on slipping, slipping, into the future

I was busy most of the day today–another cold day here in the metro DC area–and even as the day ended there was no relief in sight.  I managed to talk my way into a meeting that I thought started at 2 PM, and did start at 2 PM, only in the wrong time zone.  So I rushed home […]

‘Twas the day after Christmas…

Today was a relaxing, lazy day.  First off, it was very hot out, well over 80 degrees, and that just made me feel sluggish throughout the day.  I didn’t do much.  Kelly and I did head over to the nearby mall and wandered around in the heat until we couldn’t take it anymore.  And although […]

Good Monday

Up just before 6 AM with a killer stomach ache, the first one in a really long time.  Eventually it went away.  I was good today about meals.  5 small meals beginning around 7 AM and spread about every three hours throughout the day.  For dinner I made chicken and had what was left of my apple, ale […]

Sleep!

I went to bed at 8 PM last night.  I tried reading for a little while, but I was just too tired.  I woke up with a terrible headache yesterday morning and it lingered for most of the day.  I took some medicine before going to bed and then finally seemed to help.  I turned out the light maybe […]

One month

Can you believe it’s been one month since our wedding already?  Time has zoomed by at an incredible rate!  I had to work late today but on the way home, I picked up a dozen roses for Kelly in celebration of the special day.  (Kelly had Veterans Day off.) The cats were hungry early and so I was […]

The best sandwich ever

I felt much better when I woke up this morning and as a result, I had a productive day at work today and it felt good.  The day concluded with a two hour meeting.  Kelly was waiting for me at the mall when the meeting was over and we headed home together.  It was a quiet and relaxing […]

Still sick!

Still sick when I woke up this morning.  Last night was the third night in a row that I slept in the guest room in an effort to prevent spreading this cold to Kelly.  Don’t know if it is working.  This evening Kelly was saying that she might be coming down with something.  I’m not sure […]
