The Return of Covid

Satie tested positive the other day, now I feel sick...
November 10, 2023

Satie came home not feeling well the other day. No big deal right?
She Tested POSITIVE FOR Covid

Just great. They were supposed to go to Maine this weekend. Now I'll have to hear crying because the trip is going to be cancelled.

Now the whole family has it. Alex even got it this time. How she survived the first round without getting it is beyond me.
Actually I have 2 theories on that.

  1. She was patient zero
  2. She is not human
Now I have to eliminate theory number 2.
At least we'll be ready for the holidays. We should have immunity straight through the winter.

What Covid says to your plans...

Halloween Spirit

I've not seen people take Halloween so seriously in my life
October 31, 2023

We had a Halloween Party. First time in my life doing such a thing. I went to Halloween parties as a kid, but they were all at school. You had to beg your mother to buy good candy to bring to school so that you could participate in the class party. The person who brought the least liked candy was basically considered a pariah. Somehow I could never get that through to my mom.

Happy BirthDay Satie

Satie's Birthday Party
October 7, 2023

We had a party for Satie's Birthday. It was a good time. She's gotten so big. I'm so wrapped up in finishing school right now I almost forgot about her birthday. When I started school I swear she was much smaller. I promised her that I'd be done soon.
Only the capstone left. 2 out of 3 papers passed. One more to go.

Satie and Maddy

Two more reasons
August 20, 2023

I keep letting myself get distracted. I'm down to 8 classes left. Everytime I start making progress I get a random memory that just blows up my whole process. I have to stop thinking about the past. Damien is gone. I have to face it. His time is over, and I still have more things to do. I can't die with him anymore.
I have two more reasons to keep going.

Just me, myself and I. Even when there is no one else around, I am never alone.
Sometimes I get tired of listening to the three of us argue, but we are all doing just fine.
Let me try to explain
I is the one who has done all the things in the past. Me is the one who is dealing with the current situation. Myself is the one that's looking towards our future.
We three guys never agree on anything.
I have a heart that makes the grinch's look oversized. I grew up in the hood and worked my way out, what can I say. I don't suffer fools lightly.
I'm fortunate to have that expierience though. It prepared me for my career in CyberSecurity. My insecurities now show me what secure looks like.
