TWITL – week thirty-seven – musical bright spots

I almost named this post “the final straw” but how melodramatic is that? Explanation perhaps at the end. “11:11” – Ben Barnes – I’m easy when it comes to my fellas so of course I’m adoring this new song. I’m just happy I’m liking something other than country music (which of course I still LOVE).…

TWITL – week thirty-six – what we remember

As I write now, it’s September 11, 2021. Twenty years since 9/11. I won’t post this today but I thought I’d take that moment to pause, as one does on this day but I suppose especially this day twenty years later. What did we learn from that day, from those days after, from that moment…

TWITL – week thirty-five – Happy Labor Day

I do so love the three day weekends. August feels like the longest month, work-wise, because there are neither holidays nor breaks in all that month. It’s just work on the weekdays and then the weekend. It’s always such a relief to get through it. I started working overtime this week. I know, me, overtime?…

TWITL – week thirty-two – cousin time

This post is late because I spent Sunday afternoon/evening hanging out with my cousins. So why not talk about that? My uncle and cousin live in Las Vegas and they were out this way for a shot visit. It’s been a couple of years at least since we’ve seen them so it was a great…

week thirty-one – back to school

week thirty-one – back to school

The first full week of school has come and gone. The weather was hot and we had one whole day of NO INTERNET at work. Yes, that was an interesting day and many of us realized how much we use the internet for our work. It made me appreciate the fact that I keep a…

TWITL – week thirty – break’s end, hot days

It felt like such a long week. Maybe because school started. Maybe because we had hot days. I was so glad when it was finally Friday but the weekend is never long enough, is it? We had our Convocation on Wednesday. It was great seeing everyone. The outdoor set up was new but it was…
