Sunday Sustenance and Saving Time

Happy weekend, everyone! It’s also officially Step 1 week around here! I usually take advantage of my Sunday afternoon to save time throughout the week. For me, that’s means making a huge pot of oatmeal to warm up for breakfast in the morning.     It’s been a very busy few weeks here, so today […]

Social science

Last weekend I packed up Mox and headed for my State of Origin to get the hell out of B’s way so he could “enjoy” an weekend of studying sans distractions. I thought this was a marvelous idea, and it was, except that I didn’t take into account how much B appreciates those distractions sometimes. […]

A room with a view

Or at least a different chair.   B’s got a pretty sweet office setup. A big desk with a variety of lighting options, an iHome to play his classical studyin’ tunes, a candle. I mean, truly the lap of luxury. Especially when compared to my work set-up.     However, after extended periods of time […]
