Usually, by this time I

Usually, by this time I would be getting done on the ellliptical trainer at the YWCA. But I have a different schedule today, so I am a bit at loose ends. I have to go into work at 8:00 to fulfill my part of my plan for a database upgrade. When I made that plan, I was thinking that I would be coming from the YWCA to work. What I didn’t count on was that the YWCA on Saturdays and Sundays doesn’t open until 7:00. So that wasn’t enough time. I have showered and had breakfast here at home, both of which are things that I haven’t done for a long time. Breakfast has either been omelet at the cafeteria at work or a Naked Juice Protein and a Clif bar from the store.

And so I haven’t blogged in a while, either. That energy has been taken up with either the University of Saint Thomas graduate class in Software Project Management or studying for the PMP certification exam. I am in the mode for studying though, which is good.

Liam has come up from watching TV and is getting himself cereal Momentarily, Dorothea will be coming down and taking him to his first baseball practice. He is massively ambivalent about it, but willing to go. On a related note, Madeline has been doing track which is great. Clearly a social thing–don’t know if the running will continue after the season.

It is getting to be 4:30. Dorothea and I rode our bikes to the California Gallery in Northeast Minneapolis and looked at art from Brittany. Been waiting to hear back from the DBA.

Appropo of nothing except all the talk of how long U.S. troops should stay in Iraq, this is a picture of Minnesota troops boarding streetcars on their way to Manila in 1898.
