  1. Two days and counting

    Tomorrow, I will get on a plane and fly to Colorado Springs and I am NOT ready.

    There's an old saying about learning enough to be dangerous and that's the point I'm at now. I know just enough to do some things that I cannot complete successfully.

    I am so doomed.

    I just got a response from my doctor here on my questions about my brain zit. I am trading phone calls with the Dr in Phoenix on scheduling. I had sent a bunch of questions to my local neurosurgeon.



    Nuts, just what I need, now my head really will whistle when the wind blows.

  5. Boring stuff

    I spent all day Friday waiting for the furnace guy, who showed up just before 6pm.

    The bottom line is... [drumroll... We're going to need to replace our furnace. Cha-ching!

    Today, I went to the local JO qualifier to assist however I could and no, I did NOT direct. I helped set up, tear down, and printed out some bout sheets, etc. While I was doing this, God made it snow.

    I am looking forward to the competition tomorrow but I really, really, really want ...
