Today was made of many small fortunes. The route I rode this morning was a long overdue reminder that this job can be both fun and rewarding if you put forth the effort to make it so. Of course, I knew that, but it’s been a long time since I felt it. There was plenty… Continue reading Untitled

The fatigue has returned. The day was easy on me and the people around me were understanding and undemanding and still I struggled to keep up.

It’s hot out today, like really, really hot. Today Denver hit 100 degrees in September for the first time, ever! Considering the what it felt like outside we were able to keep the house relatively cool, but we are still miserable. We won’t be sleeping until late tonight I’m sure. We spent the afternoon lunching… Continue reading Untitled
