Lazy Days

I like lazy days like today.

Nothing planned, not much going on. Puttered around the house (that makes me sound older than I am I think). Went to the book store and found nothing. Went to Lowes and determined my tiling project will be a pain in the butt. Matching the existing tile from 8+ years ago will be a miracle. Went and washed the Jeep a bit. Ate some pretzles on the way home. Watched a lot of tv and surfed the net all day.

Lazy days rule.

In another couple of weeks we're moving AGAIN. There is nothing else I loathe worse that I seemingly do so often. That it's MY idea this time, and for a practical reason, won't lessen the misery either.

The impetus this time is almost purely economic; this apartment is more expensive in rent than we care to afford (and the floorplan sucks, too). We have a mind to do all we can to become debt-free[ish] within five years, and tossing cash at an apartment we don't like isn't fiscally… Continue

Google Maps = ABQ spelling fail

I was just poking around Google Maps, and I noticed they spelled "Bataan Park" (the one on Lomas by the Walgreens) "Bataman Park". If anyone knows how to tell them this is wrong, have at. This is a memorial park for troops who died in WWII, so I think at a minimum it should be spelled right on Google Maps.

Weber Smokey Mountain

Or WSM as it's known on the forums

What a GREAT smoker! I got this a few weeks ago and absolutely love it. It's rather versatile as well. My first "smoke" on it was a brisket that I started at 1am on July 4th...when I woke up on Sunday, it was done!

The brisket came out a LITTLE over-done for me, but it was still wonderful.

Last night I decided to grill some steaks. Looking around online, I see… Continue

Two a Day: thread grass and stuff

This week's Two a Day was three days of yard work instead of the five days that I set myself as a goal. I just have to say eff it, I'm still getting a lot done and enjoying the process so I'm not going to fret about the arbitrary guidelines I've given myself. (It's not easy for me to do as evidenced by the fact that I even have to mention… Continue

The Curse of Brillance

You can never be too smart, right? I think I’ve heard that before – at least when it comes to people. But, it seems high intelligence is a bit of a double-edged sword with dogs. Of course, you want your dog to listen to you when you ask him to sit or wait before his dinner – and how great is it when he’s the star of his obedience class?

Dogs with smarts figure things out and really get our number to our chagrin. Take a resident shelter dog we currently have at… Continue

For the past two days, I have been having to tell myself, "Breathe!"

In other words, my anxiety level has had me hanging from the ceiling. I'd probably drift off into the stratosphere if gravity didn't have some hold. Yesterday I found myself holding my breath in anticipation of negative emotions or reactions. Like when the doctor told me that I should not have rice or pasta in my diet. How do I react to that? By holding my breath out of shear astonishment. That started off my… Continue

Earning My Explorer Badge

Recently it has begun to feel a lot like waking after a long winter. No more sitting idly by, licking my wounds, going within and purging the old. No, now it's time to come out of my self-created shell and embrace the world once more. I have now entered a new phase of my life, the phase of the Explorer.

Although I've lived in Albuquerque since 1990, I haven't felt this much like exploring her many varied and fabulous opportunities… Continue

Marc Schiff sentenced - "A good day for justice"

Following today’s sentencing of Marc Schiff, Richard called the news “a good day for justice, but a sad reminder of the corruption that happens too often in our city and state.”

Schiff, the architect for the scandal-ridden Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court project, admitted guilt to charges of mail fraud and conspiracy after he wrote false invoices that were used to pay kickbacks to public officials. Schiff was sentenced to 12 months plus a day in prison, and ordered to repay,… Continue
