Actually, I’m just ignoring you

A while back, I bought some noise canceling headphones to use at work. I got a good deal on them from NewEgg, and I needed some new ones anyway. They’re not completely noise canceling, but they do a pretty good job at blocking things out. I share an office with 3 co-workers, and my back … Continue Reading

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

Another Lifetime Ago

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been interested in the weather. Somewhere around junior high, I decided that I wanted to go to college for meteorology. I remember a family trip to Kasota, MN (in southern MN) … Mom, Dad, sister, Grandma, aunts, uncles, and cousins. I don’t remember exactly when this was, … 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
