    1. I am thinking about moving to Canada and establishing citizenship there. How seriously? on a scale of 1 to 10 about a 2.
    2. It's funny how economic issues can so thoroughly dominate our lives and our thinking under some conditions
    3. You ever actually stop and think about the premises of certain fairy tales? Man, they are just wierd. Take Rumplestiltskin for instance.
    4. Is there really such a state as being "caught up at work"? Wouldn't that actually be sort of a bad thing?
    5. I have seldom welcomed the coming of a weekend as eagerly as I do today.

    1. More junk to look at. Yes, rural farmers collect junk. I'm shocked.
    2. I think I need to find a way to RJ, but I doubt it will happen.
    3. People are complaining it's hot, I keep reminding them it's not Arizona hot.
    4. Telling me, but it's a dry heat tells me you've never been in a desert - humidity sucks and makes you sweat, but hot is hot.
    5. I think I need to take my daughter to the tennis courts this weekend so she can show off.
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    1. I plan on picking up sticks in my yard this weekend.
    2. The storms the last couple days have made my yard a stick wasteland.
    3. I might start my barn project too. New barn doors here we come.
    4. The wife is not keen on me making barn doors.
    5. I am.

    There's a little something called a "Site Inspection" that you must conduct and it's probably going to take awhile so I might not be back. You can always reach me by phone. Have an rj in your day!

    1. Had an all-day required continuing legal education on ethics yesterday, required for my Virginia law licensure.
    2. I was freshly reminded what a self-important bunch lawyers can be.
    3. I will strive not to be like that. It's not attractive.
    4. People (especially older lawyers) seem to assume that being a lawyer is synonymous with power and wealth. This has not been my experience. It annoys me.
    5. I'm so happy to have a planning job now.

    1. First five day workweek in a while is almost over!
    2. I'm loving the high temps this week, although my lawn and electric bill may not.
    3. I want to go tubing down a river, but Metro Detroit is not the place to do that.
    4. Still have to take the girls to see Despicable Me 2.
    5. How awesome are the Minions?

    1. I've been feeling stressed all week.
    2. I'm blaming the heat wave (and lack of AC).
    3. Multiple fans running = too much noise
    4. I'd like to take the afternoon off to run errands in my air-conditioned car
    5. But I'm waiting for an important e-mail.

    1. Baby Midori is 10 months old today.
    2. His first teeth finally broke through his gums yesterday.
    3. I am drafting design review or historic district guidelines for 3 different communities right now.
    4. Sometimes when I stray from what other communities have done I worry about whether I'm "doing it wrong."
    5. I guess someone always has to be the first one to try something new.

    1. It's Friday. That is a good thing.
    2. Not excited about Saturday, but Mrs. Hink is home all weekend so that is nice.
    3. I am putting up a hammock tonight. The kids are going to kill themselves on it.
    4. I over analyze a lot of things in my life. Finances, job, kids.
    5. I need to learn to relax more. And find enjoyment in it.

    1. Cheer up Maister, just hide under your desk and think about ducks
    2. I'm with Btrage, I want a minion
    3. I also want a hammock, but the kids would break it in no time
    4. I get my new house on Monday
    5. And I dread the heavy lifting during the move on Tuesday.

    1. This week Friday is my Friday. Strange.
    2. Credit is a debit by the time it gets to me.
    3. Time is not on my side.
    4. Fresh local peaches are the best!
    5. No plans this weekend, that's dangerous.

    Conduct a "windshield survey" of businesses or sites you need to take pictures of. Gets you out of the office for a good portion of the day. I always reserved my windshield surveys and photo taking for the best weather days.

    1.) I hereby declare today "Fictional Friday"
    2.) I have created that declaration because I am consistently being asked to provide information that can not possibly exist (and it's getting on my nerves).
    3.) I think it's really time for a vacation so I don't accidentally snap on someone.
    4.) Very excited about my upcoming vacation next month.
    5.) Is it next month yet?

    1. I'm so tired that I feel like I'm floating.
    2. Last night, I had a Krispy Kreme raspberry jelly donut for dinner.
    3. That's probably my favorite donut.
    4. I might go to Fiestaware outlet on Sunday.
    5. Overtime is making my savings account grow, and is making me sleepy.

    2. The girls are going to their aunt and uncles house tonight, so they can volunteer tomorrow at the Wheelchair Daze Picnic.
    3. Dinner will be just me and the wife...one of the things I look forward to the most.
    4. My wife watches Sons of Anarchy, but I never watched it with her. I'm now trying to catch up on my Kindle Fire, before season 6 starts. Great show.
    5. Contractor is coming tomorrow to give ideas/estimates on a concrete walkway/patio. I'm scared.

    Is it Friday?
    Wife come home this weekend after a month visit to her family.
    No shower stall door; I did get the old one off.
    Painted 'her' bathroom cabinets. doors/hardware not back on; the former contents are in the bathtub.
    I 'think' I paid all the bills.

    I'm doubling up. Why? Because I can.

    1. Today would have been my 10 year anniversary.
    2. Ten years ago, I didn't think I'd be planning my SECOND wedding 10 years later, but here I am.
    3. The fiancee has been bugging me for some sushi, so guess where we are going to dinner tonight?
    4. No. Not McDonald's, wiseguy.
    5. Kind of bittersweet about a work trip next week.
    6. Good - I've never been to Dallas and I will be learning some interesting stuff.
    7. Bad - The trip is Friday through Sunday. There goes my weekend.
    8. Oh well. Bonus points in the eyes of the boss are good.
    9. I'm stronger in the gym than I've been in 3+ years.
    10. After this week and last night's workout I need a good night's sleep!

    1. Normality is underrated these days
    2. Looks like the latter half of this summer may be remembered as the summer that wasn't
    3. It's amazing how when it comes to customer feedback cards, employees who have jobs that entail handing out money disproportionately receive praise
    4. I could use some praise
    5. as the #'s of cigar smokers decline, fewer households will have cigar boxes available to use as receptacles for storing miscellaneous stuff in their junk drawers

    1. It is unseasonably cool and refreshing outside, and the first day in, oh, forever that the humidity is not through the roof and rain is not threatened or occurring.
    2. Am I jealous that husband took another day off work to play in the yard? Yes, I am.
    3. I am all out of site visits to get me out of the office today.
    4. My building has no windows.
    5. Chocolate!
