It’s been a while since I’ve scribed here (not so cleverly turning a noun into a verb there). In the time since, I’ve been to many places and many times, and frankly, the trips have been exhausting. A recap, if you’d like.
Land Of The Proud Papa: Eldest Daughter is a college grad-chu-ma-kate as of this writing. She successfully completed her studies and is a happy alumni of Western Nevada Community College. She is a member of WNCC’s last graduating class, which will be known as Western Nevada College in July. Her seester, the Middle Daughter, made Dean’s List yet again at the aforementioned ivy-less college. Woo Hoo and Congrats to Both!
Street of the Supportive Spouse: The Bride’s fame grows and grows. The folks at Redbook sent out press releases about her, and she was contacted by the local media for interviews. She appeared on TV and twice in the Reno Gazette-Journal (here and here). Her fame touched me at my workplace because a manager leading a meeting took five minutes to discuss said newspaper articles. Let’s see: published book and magazine author, extra in an Oscar-nominated movie, politician, board of directors at a local non-profit, and so on. What did you do today?
Nostalgia City: Today is the Duke’s 100th birthday. It got me to mulling all of the people now gone that once made up the good old days. That’s a sign of getting older, I guess: it takes more than a few minutes to do that now.
Dizzyland: Yep, another stinking ear infection that knocked me out of work and school for nearly a week. My hearing, such as it is, is slowly coming back.
The Valley of the End-of-Semester Blahs: One more week and this long, arduous semester from hell will be over. Easily the toughest one of all of them. New books + new expectations = triple the work. Yuck.
Land of Saturated and Trans Fats: Since I’ve had no energy and no time, it seems, I’ve been lazy on the exercise and eating thing. I knew my weight was creeping up but the scales at the doctor office were still a little shocking. Yes, my pants fit better BUT they shouldn’t. I finally got my ever-widening butt on the bike today after too many absent weeks and six miles nearly killed me. Guess what Bubba be doing once the semester is over.
That’s all for now. Y’all keep exercising and eating right and taking care of each other now, ya hear?
