Getting back into the swing of things

Over the last few days I’ve been cleaning up my home office. Since I moved into my house in 2009 this room has mainly served as the “catch-all” room, the place where things go when I have someone staying in my guest room. As a result, there is a lot of junk lying around.

This project has also pointed out to me the need for a new computer. My iPad has served as my primary computing device for a few years – it’s a lot easier to use on the sofa. But now, I’m starting to feel the age of my ol’ Mac mini. I’m working on saving up for a new computer but time is not on the side of this little beast.

I have been debating about the need to have a blog of late. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram serve me up pretty nicely. Since I left the world of journalism, my writing time has been pretty limited. I’ve decided, this blog does have a place in my world, I just need to get better at using it.

From here on out, I’m going to try to write at least one post a week. They might not have much of a point, much like this one, but I’m going to give it a shot. Just like cleaning up this disaster of a home office.


Lazy Sunday afternoon

I have spent the last few hours bumming around the house, doing a little yard work and watching some TV. This has been my kind of Sunday. While I’d like to say I’ve made some great strides in doing work around the house, the to-do list continues to grow and not shrink.

The last few weeks have been non-stop with work. Covering concerts, meetings and other events pretty much made up every week night from the middle of April until now. Once graduation at RTR was finished on Saturday afternoon, I have to admit I could feel myself relaxing a little.

Keep in mind, it’s a false sense of relaxation as I know Monday is just around the corner and more evening meetings and events await.

I used graduation as a marker that said: “There is a little less to do each week.”

I am in no way complaining. I enjoy being busy, but having a relaxing Sunday where I can watch National Treasure 2, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie and a Twins game is my idea of an accomplishment.

Memorial Day is right around the corner and that will be followed up by Aebleskiver Days and the Lincoln County Fair. Then school starts up again.

Currently: An NBA playoff game is on in the background.
