Haven’t had my head screwed on straight in over a week, & boy has it showed…

I should still be in bed dozing a while longer on my day off, waking up slowly. Instead, I'm sitting here at 6:30 a.m. with my first cup of coffee, trying to figure out how I could've oh-so thoroughly screwed up my week (and month by extension). I should be sitting out on the porch … Continue reading Haven’t had my head screwed on straight in over a week, & boy has it showed…

Been one of those brain-dead weeks, working too hard on some things & not enough for others.

I find it weird how some weeks happen to work out. This one's been all over the place. I've been coming home falt-out tired and not wanting to read (gasp) or anything much. I guess it's the stress catching up with me and making me just wanna go straight to sleep when I get home. … Continue reading Been one of those brain-dead weeks, working too hard on some things & not enough for others.

Metro Houston’s East Side is on Fire (and it’s definitely not pretty).

photo credit abc13.com I didn't have the news on yesterday and was totally ignorant of this fire that's been going on since about 10:30 Sunday morning.

Home Depot near me is changing big time… and I don’t like it a bit.

I hate to say this because I've been a loyal Home Depot customer since I knew what a hardware store was (and the local ACE Hardware jacked up its prices and closed down...and so did Builder's Square, which I suspect was bought by Home Depot. Anyway...). I stayed with them even with the influx of … Continue reading Home Depot near me is changing big time… and I don’t like it a bit.

We Seven: The Classic Story of the Heroes who Launched America Into Space, by the Astronauts Themselves

My Copy: 9781439181034 (image from Simon and Schuster .com) I was pretty excited to read this book after I found it in the source notes from The Right Stuff...and it gives me some insight as to the limitations The Right Stuff had in its own narrative. We Seven, by the Astronauts themselves, is a collection … Continue reading We Seven: The Classic Story of the Heroes who Launched America Into Space, by the Astronauts Themselves

Don’t Bullsh*t Yourself!: Crush the excuses that are holding you back, by Jon Taffer

My Copy: 9780735217003 (image from twitter.com) I'm sure the title gave away that this was a self-help book, and it doesn't disappoint. No worries, it doesn't curse you out throughout, but does call it the way Jon Taffer does on Bar Rescue...minus the physically in your face element. His calmer voice comes through well in Don't … Continue reading Don’t Bullsh*t Yourself!: Crush the excuses that are holding you back, by Jon Taffer
