In the words of one of my favorite musical artists, “Hello Old Friend. It’s really good to see you once again.” It has been a while since I have updated the blog, but I thought I would take some time to bring the three people who read this thing up to date.
In my professional life, work has been keeping me busy, for a variety of different reasons. As one of my staff moved to an internal position, I have had to work with my remaining staff to take on my former charge’s tasks. I think that change combined with my efforts to fill the position have taken their toll. Some other organizational change is afoot, and with changes such as this, there are always some growing pains. I am interested in the outcome.
In my personal life, a degree of normalcy has been restored. As of today, I am now the sole resident of my home once again. My houseguest–my mother–has moved into her place, and I think it is a good move for her (and for me). I have enjoyed the new-found freedom I have once again in my house. No more weekend afternoons of NASCAR, weekday evenings of Oriole games, and other televised things. For all of my complaining, I think this time has done both of us some good. Still, there is something to be said for having the complete and unfettered use of my home once again.
On other fronts, I am doing quite well.
