I had a boss once whose decisions depended on to whom he spoke last. One person could present a case for doing something by a certain date and he’d decide that was the way to go. Fifteen minutes later, a different person could talk to him about doing the same task in a different manner, with different resources and budget, on a different schedule, and that’s what his decision would be.  It was like the first conversation never happened. So you always wanted to be last in line when you talked to him.

I’ve figured out my life is like that.

I had a terrific weekend — one of the best and most relaxing weekends I’ve had in a long time. I was in a terrific mood.

Monday (yesterday) was a totally different day. In the morning I found out some not-happy work related things.Then in the afternoon, I had a rather arduous 2.5 hours in the dentist’s chair having a root canal done, and today I still feel like someone socked me in the jaw. You would think that some of the euphoria from the weekend would have carried forward, but it’s more like a new slate every day. It’s whatever life throws at me that day is how I feel. Forget about what happened the day before, it all exists in the here and now. What has life done for me/to me lately?


On another note, the Simponi is definitely wearing off. I don’t feel like I need another shot yet, but I can tell the aches and pains are no longer under control. I’ve updated my Simponi Synopsis page if you want more information.


On yet another unrelated subject, I got asked how I come up with the titles for my blog posts.

That’s one of the hardest things for me to do. I wrote a trashy [award-winning] paper-back novel about a guy who wins the lottery, but was robbing the convenience store when he bought the ticket. I got the entire book written, rewritten, edited and nearly published before I came up with a title (Wake Up With Fleas). I’ve never been 100% happy with the title, but the book’s been published for a couple of years now and I’ve yet to come up with anything I like better.

Naming blog posts is a bit easier since they are shorter and generally deal with a single topic. It’s weird, but I usually have the title in my head before I write the post instead of the other way around.

Other than the root canal, life is generally good, but about to get very busy, so I may not get to post every day. However, I do appreciate the interest and the support.

Thanks for checking in.
