Merry Christmas and a Happy Saturnalia!

I love gift giving. It is, I would go so far as to say, my primary love language. I take my time methodically selecting presents that will bring that specific person joy, and then receive my reward by enjoying the look of delight on their faces when they realize what kind of meticulous time andContinue reading “Merry Christmas and a Happy Saturnalia!”

Thanks 2020, You Can Stop Now

So this year is a mixed bag for me as far as things to be thankful for. Given the last 11ish months, sometimes it’s hard to remember that a lot of really amazing things have happened to me this year.

Well this past Saturday was Halloween. I neither participated in the tradition of costuming, nor did I adorn my porch with festive ornamentation. I sat at my computer and worked for eleven hours. Because nothing say Spooky Season like cashing in on 2.5 hours of Overtime!

The Thanksgiving Survival Guide

Thanksgiving is a time of reflection.  Appreciating the world around you and the gifts you’ve been given.  Despite the many hurdles I’ve had to jump in myContinue reading “The Thanksgiving Survival Guide”
