"Our long national nightmare is over..." among the more famous quotes of Gerald R. Ford, 38th President of the United States. He helped the country heal when we were at our worst. Rest in peace, and Godspeed Mr. President. 

Sara and I have arrived safely in Virginia. Presidents seem to pass away when I'm in Virginia. I was a junior, just packing up to leave Lexington when Reagan passed away. I'm looking into the possibility of stopping in DC on the way home since he'll be resting in state at the Capitol. I really wanted to go for Reagan but I was leaving before he arrived in DC. 

Anyway.  We're here, and looking forward to C&Q's wedding. I'll post more later. For now, off to the Green Leafe for food.

I promised a proper update a few days ago when I didn't have much time.

Things are good here. Perhaps better than in a while. I'm feeling better. Getting outside more. Spending less free time staring at the computer, which, no offense to all you online peoples, is not good for my mental health. Trying to get in a routine to go bicycling at least once a day with Sara. So far, it's hard to start a new habit, but we're working at it.

Meeting neighbors also helps. I went over and bailed out a couple of biz school grad students who don't know one end of the hammer from the other and put together their enterianment cabinet for them. Growin up a farm boy and knowing what a cordless drill is for has it's advantages. They're talking about getting a poker game together, which would be great.

Work still keeping me busy, the new assistant manager we're training is currently near the top of my all time "blonde" list, but hopefully we'll straighten her out.

Muse comes and goes. Problems again with Sara's laptop (GRRR), and it's limited my writing time.

Anyway, hope everybody's doing good!

Well, now, I've had an exciting day.

My birthday technically started yesterday, when my family celebrated and gave me all my presents. I got a couple of nice DVDs and some new books. My subscription to Sports Illustrated was also renewed for another year, yah!

My sister flew back to Philly today, which was why we celebrated early. Sara and I drove up here (Sara's soon-to-be-ours apartment up in West Leb.) I sat down last night, and shortly after midnight this morning, I completed my NaNo quest! The story itself is NO WHERE NEAR finished, but I got 50k words, which means I can now take a break and head back to my fics over on PS. I've been rereading what I've written so far to get my head back in the game. I've also been roped into doing a join fic with Sara for someone's birthday coming up...shhh....and I couldn't resist the Alphatbet challange over on [Bad username or site: @].

It's good to be back in the fandom!

And of course, it's my birthday today, which means the birthday wishes have been coming in from several quarters. Thanks to all who have sent me good wishes this day, you all rock!

Sara's panfrying a steak for dinner, with a cream sauce made with Irish Whiskey. One of my favorite dishes. Highly recomended, and we have the recipie if anyone wants it.

That's about all for today.

Well, the Praxis test this morning was a bit rocky. The sections on Econ, Sociology, Psych, and Anthropology kind of tripped me up. Here's hoping I did well enough in the history sections to make up for that.

And my Beloved Blue Devils continued their long tradition of impotenance against the Pinkerton Acadamy Astros today, losing 7-0 in the NH Division One Superbowl. Salem's record all time against Pinkerton is now 3-18. (A dismal .143 percentage)
*large sigh*

For a day that got of to such a rocky begining, it ended on a relative high note. Hugs go out to [ profile] dancinginmagic for cheering me up when I got home from the game. After I sought out food, as I was ordered too, my better half showed up here to give me a back rub and snuggles. I love my Sara! After that, we went out to dinner with our friend Erin, who needed a night out after her own lousy day working at Sprawlmart.

Bedtime. Night all.
