Bad Blogger

It's amazing how - even when writing blog posts mentally during the day - I just never get around to actually writing and posting them. There is just SO much going on, that it's easier to post a one sentence comment on Facebook than it is to post a deep analysis of some moderately interesting topic on my blog.

I have been a bad blogger this year.

My blog is soon moving over to WordPress (, and this move has taken a lot of my time. Blogger hasn't been a great blog partner in the last few years - no great updates or improvements - and WordPress plugins, are, well, just cooler. In addition, it has been a great experience learning more about WordPress programming and customization. I'm taking on a few projects for friends that will likely be based in WordPress, and there's, the philanthropic project that Jess Dijak and I are getting off of the ground that we managed to get up and running over a weekend.

Next up? Maybe Joomla, just for fun. I think I need to hone my programming skills a little bit more...

Oh, goodness...

I haven't blogged since early March? Yikes. I need to get on this.

Since March:
- Antonio is on two more medications/remedies
- My sleep test came back ok for apnea, but I have decreased stage 3/4 sleep
- My thyroid levels came back borderline, might be hypothyroid
- I've been working out for 3+ weeks, and I'm starting to notice changes
- Been eating a lot of salad

There you go. You're up to speed. I'll think of something more interesting soon. Promise.

Those Who Trespass Against Us

My car was rummaged through again last week. I'd like to tell you when it occurred, but since I rarely drive anymore, I just can't be sure. Do I lock my car? Yep. Did I leave my car unlocked? Possibly.

I'd like to say that I was horrified or violated... or affected somehow, but the truth is that after doing a quick mental inventory of the items in (or not in) my car, I cleaned up and shrugged it off.

It's amazing how eight years of living in Baltimore can change someone. Not that this is by any means a representation of how much I've changed, but it's telling. I don't really care anymore. When all was said an done, I tossed the papers back into my glove compartment, the chargers back into my center console, took note that I'm down about $1.50 in change, and moved on.

At least they left my collection of Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons...

I would be perfectly contented living in a place where it was always Spring. I'd manage the chill, dance in the rain, stomp in puddles, and hell... I never really liked myself in shorts anyway.

Thoughts on Moving

By the way, before I get into this post, I would like to agree that I have been a terrible blogger. God awful. I know. I'm determined to do better by the 5 people who might actually read my blog anymore. So there you have it. I'm sorry. Let's move on...

So, a few thoughts on moving... I absolutely had no choice today but to throw away all of the St. Jude's free address labels that I've been hoarding (yes, hoarding) for the past five years. YAY! Whether I sent money or not (mostly not), I have no need to feel guilty anymore because I'm not using something that I didn't pay for. What a relief! It's such a weight lifted off of my shoulders! I wonder how long until I get them at the new address... Christmas?

Another interesting observation: I had to pay a bill (Patient First) with an actual check today. Remember checks? I'm not actually sure where my checkbook is at this point, but I came across a new box of checks with... you've got it... my OLD address on them! And here's the kicker: I spent FIVE years working my way through the checks with my old, old address on them, so I wonder how long I have to live here before I make it through this box... ah, well.

I have high hopes for you, 2011... the last two years have been a struggle at times, what with losing three grandparents and all, but I'm absolutely sure you're going to pull through for me. Let's do this!
