Why do I still have this stuff?

In my last post, I mentioned that I found another house to look at. I never did a follow-up post … oops. Well, here’s that follow-up: I bought the house!!! I close on the house next week Monday (on my birthday). I’ve been slowly packing up my apartment (slower than I’d like). As I’m packing, … Continue Reading

Is this the one?

At the beginning of this summer, I embarked on a new journey. I decided that I wanted to move forward on my dream of owning my own home. I’m actually surprised that I haven’t blogged about it at all. I’ve gotten extremely tired of my apartment. It’s a one bedroom with a living room that … Continue Reading

10 Years Later

Today is the 10 year anniversary of the tragedy at the World Trade Center in New York. Everyone seems to be posting memories, so I thought I would too. I didn’t have a blog back then. I didn’t start blogging until June 2002. Twitter and Facebook weren’t around back then either. So I’m going off … Continue Reading

Dear Bullies

I had a dream last nite where I told off one of the classmates who made my life a living hell in high school. It wasn’t the ringleader, but it was one of the jackasses that joined in. It felt good to tell him off. I think I even made him cry a little (his … Continue Reading

Cheesy Sauteed Corn

Mom & Dad came to town on Friday and brought me some veggies from their garden … cucumbers, green peppers, onions, beans, and beets. They also brought me some corn on the cob that Mom had gotten from a co-worker (and she even shucked it for me). This was the second batch of veggies I’ve … Continue Reading

Becky’s got her groove back

Tomorrow will end my first week of work at my new job. Things have been going good and the people are nice. I don’t feel like an outsider like I have at other jobs. I’ve finished up one project and have started another. It feels soooooo good to be working with php again. For the … Continue Reading

Managed to make it through

Today was my first day at my new job. The job is perfect for me. It’s a php/MySQL “specialist”. My background is in php, and I have lots of experience with sql … mainly MSSQL in recent years, but I started out with MySQL. I actually ran across this position a little over a year … Continue Reading

How to stay sane while being unemployed

Every adult out there has been unemployed at some point or another in their life. Whether they just graduated from college and are looking for their first job in the “real” world or the troubled economy has caused their employer to make budget cuts, including eliminating their position. We’ve all been there. Hopefully the time … Continue Reading
