well... damn

How do I say this. We're going to be saying goodbye again. DH has been alerted to the fact that he's going back to the Sand. Next year, late winter/early spring.

well... damn.

so much to say

That I don't really know where to start. On a personal level, all is good.

Gettysburg - we spent a great weekend up there - the hotel was literally on the battlefield, the restaurant sucked, but the bed was comfortable, you could open the windows, the weather cooperated, and I only got one migraine! We walked Pickett's Charge - they mow a large path from the Virginia monument to the stone wall.. that is a damned long walk, and it really brought home the incredible courage those men showed, taking that gentle slope into the storm of fire that was being aimed at them. The music from "Gettysburg" kept running through my head. LOVE that CD. (Thanks, sweetie, for getting it for me!)

Chatham House/Fredricksburg - another great day, battery fire (2 guns) and a group of infantry from New Jersey lead by a hysterically funny Sgt - who really brought home the trials and travails of a ground pounder during the War of Northern Aggression - whoops... the Virginia's coming out there... and I'm only one by marriage.

Migraines - one or two a week. I'm in a study now.. so there is some hope. I don't want to say too much about that here until we know more.

Work - the light at the end of the tunnel isn't the oncoming train anymore! yea. I have made headway on the files from hell, and I think I can start working on other stuff - whew. The boss seems happier since MIMI is gone - although we have found so much important crap hidden in her desk, you'd be amazed!

Politics - oh just shut up everyone! Yes, I'll be voting Democrat - but I'm done with it all. the negative ads, the BS online from both sides. Basta! The stupidity of those thinking Obama is some muslim terrorist in disguise, the ridiculous personal attacks... enough already. McCain isn't the second coming, nor is he the anti christ. I'm NOT going there.

Y'all take it easy.

That's what I'll call it, Hiatus. I've been on hiatus - like TV shows used to do it... OK, so I've actually just not posted.. sue me.

I'd like to tell you all about Gettysburg and the fantastic time we had out there, or about the bike ride (motor, not pedal) out to Arlington and the interesting history I learned there... but I'm just pissy today. I've had a migraine every other day, I'm not sleeping well and I'm just crabby. Everything I want to do, I either know will trigger another headache, or I can't finish it... I have these half done projects and just don't see an end to anything. Work is driving me nuts - enuff said there.

I'm not good company today - I'll try again later.

I am NOT Spam!

On Friday - my blog was locked. From what I see, many Blogger sites were locked, accused of being "spam blogs". Seems they have algorithm problems with their automatic spam blogging systems.. Well - as an old friend used to say -- BITE ME! This just pissed me off. Of course, for a couple minutes, I wondered - another rightwing way to shut all the liberals off? nah, they aren't dumb enough to try that one, because we will always find another way to mouth off.

It also made me realize I need to back this up, keep those posts that meant something, or where I said something meaningful and did it in a halfway decent fashion.

So I'm back. I'll actually write something when I get a chance to NOT be mad and/or busy as hell.
