  • Goals for 2024

    Posting this a bit later than usual. I did have my list ready on New Year’s Day, but then wanted to post my goals for 2023 review and my year-in-review and then got distracted.

  • 2023 Year In Review

    Another year with very little blogging means that I’m relying mostly on photos to even remember what I did this year! It was a fairly uneventful year, but with a few big highlights. My New Hobbies The number one highlight of the year for me was learning how to do stand-up comedy. I took a […]

  • Goals for 2023 – The Final Report

    When I last checked in on my goals, it was July (because – spoiler alert – I did not do my third quarter report, so failed at my goal for doing quarterly reports) and honestly, I didn’t accomplish too many more of my goals than I’d done at that time. I managed to achieve 8 […]

  • My Stand-Up Comedy Debut

    As you know, one of my goals for this year is to learn 12 new things. One of the things I’ve wanted to learn for a very, very, very long time is stand-up comedy. I met a woman who teaches stand-up comedy when we were both on the board of the Arts Council of New […]

  • Learning to Crochet

    So I’ve mentioned in my last three blog postings that I’m learning how to crochet, so I figured maybe it’s time to write a blog posting about it. I decided I wanted to learn to crochet on this year’s Wine Bitches trip1. My friend Cheryl was crocheting and she’d taught our other friend Cat how […]

  • He jests at scars that never felt a wound

    So on Monday my laser eye surgery got cancelled. Just as I was about to walk out the door to head to the clinic, I got a call saying that the laser had not met its parameters in the morning safety testing, so they had to cancel all the surgeries for the day because they […]

  • The course of good vision never did run smooth

    Hey, remember that time I said that my distance vision had started to suck and my optometrist suggested getting my laser eye surgery redone? Well, I’ve finally decided to do that. I’ve spent the last year and a bit wearing glasses for things where I need to see things at a distance: driving, watching TV […]

  • Goals for 2023 – Halfway Point Check In

    Given that I haven’t written a blog posting since my first quarter of the year goals check-in three months ago, I know right off the hop that I’m failing miserably on my goal of “Publish 52 blog postings”1. I’ve also made no progress on any of my 5 remaining “one off” goals. The “some other […]

  • Goals for 2023 – Quarterly Check-in #1

    One of my goals for 2023 was to do quarterly check-ins on how things are going with my goals, and since it’s the end of March, it’s time to do my first check-in. So by posting this, I’m 1/4 of the way complete on this goal at 1/4 of the way through the year – […]

  • Finger Update

    Remember that time that I amputated my finger? That was a month ago, so I figured it is a good time to write an update on it. Note: I’ll leave the graphic photos to the end, so if you don’t want to see those, don’t scroll down. The descriptions will be slightly graphic, so if […]
