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

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…

TWITL – week twenty-nine – winding down the summer break feeling

Summer break doesn’t last very long for the kids out this way. The schools out here operate on a modified traditional schedule, which means they have two week breaks after every quarter, making the summer break shorter by a few weeks compared to other schools.

TWITL – week twenty-eight – the long rest

My dad’s oldest sister died on Wednesday night. She was ninety years old, mother of four, grandmother of four, oldest of six who lived into adulthood. I can still hear her voice. I like to think she’s resting now… The work week went by in a weird sort of blur and ended with the last…

TWITL – week twenty-seven – back to work

TWITL – week twenty-seven – back to work

It’s still summer break for the kids out this way but I went back to work after more than a week off. Even though I had a lot of emails and voicemails to go through, it wasn’t so bad. I have air conditioning at work and not many interruptions when it’s summer break… TV The…

TWITL – week twenty-six – my summer break

TWITL – week twenty-six – my summer break

Last year, I didn’t take any chunks of time off from work during summer break but this year I decided I wanted some time off. Once noon hit on that last Friday in June, I was off for eleven whole days. My vacation started rather lowkey. Lots of tv watching and mostly just lazy stuff.…
