Good Thing I'm Not A Blogger

It's been nearly three months since posting an update here. Yeesh-o-meesh. And to think bloggers do this everyday...and as it should be.

Needless to say, there's been A LOT going on since the first of May. Actually, most of it is a blur. So, let's hit some high points and see what I can remember...

====Broken Toe?====
Yeah, never a good idea to be sitting at a desk barefoot, whirl around to the left, and smack your foot into the side of the desk. Purple and red are lovely colors on the toe next to the pinkie toe. Not sure if I actually broke or fractured it...but it happened on a Saturday afternoon...had to take a sick day on Monday...hobbled a bit on Tuesday and Wednesday...and by Friday was feeling pretty normal.

====Crazy Work Stuff====
We've been undergoing research and tweaking and rebuilding here at WUSA9.com. Please excuse our mess, we've got some dust bunnies everywhere! Still doing the 7am - 4pm workday.

====Teaching Young Married Class At Church====
A new class started at church has been for young married couples. We have three in the class now. We're a few weeks old and looking to grow...it's been a blessing.

====MySpace====
I've started creating a little page in MySpace...and was considering moving this project over there...just to consolidate. Check out: http://www.myspace.com/webmonkeydc

====When 50 cents equals 25 bucks====
Yeah...when you slap a few coins in the meter hoping to get back before time's up, it's better to have 50 or 75 cents more...than to come back and hour after your time expired and have to pay 25 bucks. But at least one can pay online. Woo-who!

More to come...

I Can Honestly Say Jon Is My Best Friend

At the beginning of this year, these were Kate Gosselin's words in an interview with Today's Christian Woman : "I can honestly say Jon is my best friend." Kate also says, "When the babies were born, I was well aware that our marriage could crumble. It was close to doing so at times. But we survived that first year. And then the second one. And then each year after that. Even though the issues have changed, it's never gotten easier. "But Jon and I are more determined than ever that we're in this together. We've told our kids many times that we're always going to be a family. There are no other options. Sure, Jon and I take our stress out on each other, and no, that's not always good or healthy. But we work hard as a team every day."

My Introduction to the Silent Killer

On August 3, 2022, my workplace hosted a blood drive. Finally! A chance to give blood after not doing so since the start of the pandemic! Not that I was fearful but there weren't many opportunities to give and then I just wasn't that motivated to get out and get it done! As I have the freedom to mostly work from home, a meeting was scheduled on the day of the blood drive which made for a nice reason to be on campus. However, the meeting needed to be rescheduled. This led to thoughts of, "Do I go in just to give blood? I could always find another time." I self-debated for a short while but ultimately chose to go in that day.  After checking in and answering a bunch of questions, the tech took my blood pressure and paused. “Do you have high blood pressure?” The last time I had it checked was probably going in for a Covid test or something but a few years ago I was considered prehypertensive by my primary physician. “You’re 170 over…” I didn’t hear the second figure bein

Grateful During Unemployment

Two years have passed since I last scribed in this blog. Much life has transpired during that time. Too much to really unpack here. Then, I was a few months into a new public sector role with the City of Baltimore and starting to pursue the dream of rebooting the paranormal broadcast TV news series I co-created with Darren Dedo called "Unexplained" as a YouTube docu-series "Unexplained Cases."  Today, I am unemployed and "Unexplained Cases" has grown but has yet to generate revenue.  In July, I was dismissed from both my part-time weekend job at Grace Community Church and my City of Baltimore job. I've never had the pleasure of being released from two jobs in a month. Technically, I was released in June from Grace and my separation date was July 3. My last day of work at Baltimore was July 23 and my separation date was September 23. Unless one has been through an extended period of unemployment, one cannot understand the emotions that are stirred. For
