  1. Road Map for the Day - January 25, 2011

    by , 01-25-2011 at 08:43 AM
    Yet another meeting this morning, but not until 10:00am, but I have to pick a co-worker up from an auto repair shop the opposite direction of how I go to work, so I still have to be mindful of the time.

    The plan is: morning exercise, breakfast to everyone, dressed for the meeting, then off to pick up my co-worker, straight to the office, and into the meeting. After the meeting, I have a bunch of paperwork still to catch up on, then hopefully out the door a little earlier than yesterday ...

    It is a Monday, so back to work. Today's plan: do my sit-ups/push-ups, feed everyone breakfast, hop in the shower, then head to the office for a 9:30a meeting. I'll stop, on the way, to pick up my dry-cleaning. After the meeting, I have to spend some time inventorying some property that needs to be returned, then I'm meeting my sister for lunch at 1:00p. After lunch, I'll probably be working on the property again for the rest of my work day, interspersed with trying to get ready for possibly being ...

  4. A week on the ranch (January 17 - January 23, 2011)

    As some of you know, I had to euthanize Samson, my alpine dairy goat, on Saturday. So most of this week was caught up in treating him and agonizing over whether to keep going. By Thursday, I was pretty sure there was no point in prolonging his suffering, but when the vet came out Friday, she delayed putting him down until she could run blood tests, because he still had so much fight in him. On Saturday morning, when the tests came back, she agreed it was time. I've attached a picture of Samson, ...
