In my very last post, A Vacation From My Vacation, I was going to do All The Things ™ and whatnot, but then I got #ForRealsies Really Real Sick.
Sometimes “tomorrow” unexpectedly punches you in the throat meat.
Here’s what I did instead of all the things.
- Called the therapist.
- Talked to the therapist.
- Worked out a path to wellness with the therapist.
- Followed the path to wellness.
- TRA LA LAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Okay, but seriously, this is what actually happened after step three.

Yesterday I flew back from the States, jokingly to escape the Area 51 raid, but seriously cause it was the end of vacation and since said vacation was two weeks taking care of Boy Twin and Visiting Family, I am taking the next four work days off.
While I don’t normally do this, I have a ton of Paid Time Off accrued from when I was pregnant with twins and sick nearly every single day and all that vacation rolled over and since the project is mostly quiet in July and I’m also taking off for the week of Gish, I’m pretty much all of July.
My colleagues are going to forget what I look like!
But seriously there are three major projects I’m working on in my copious free time and I’m going to take the next few days to dive into them.
Would you like to know more?

I suppose that I should make an introduction of you before simply sending you a blog post, but THAT’S HOW I ROLL. To cut through introductions, I’ll just link to your personal trainer website. And can I also totally recommend a makeover on that thing? Like, the content is solid, but let’s get rid of all the adobe flash, yeah? Also, I take back what I said about the content – it’s static. You NEED a blog on there. AND your latest social media content COUGH INSTAGRAM COUGH displayed on the home page.
And can we talk about how there are NONE pictures of me on there?
But, of course, you know exactly what I’m doing right now.
Yes, I packed for the gym today. Yes, I’m going to go to the gym. Yes, here’s what I plan on doing.

The following piece is written by my grandpa, Edwin Arnold Porter, and my cousin, Cassie Lopez.
In the early morning hours of Thursday, 14 March 2019, our beloved Dorothy Genevieve Porter died peacefully in her sleep at home.
Dorothy was born on 5 February 1926. She was adopted by Adolph and Harriett Hoven and grew up in Tillamook, Oregon. She married Arnie when she was 20 and he was 19. They shared nearly 73 years of marriage, as an Air Force family. They lived across four countries and moved fourteen times, having three kids along the way- Steve, Lisa and Julie.
She studied music at Northwest Christian College and became a Church Musician. She sang, played the piano and organ and conducted prize winning choirs almost everywhere the family was assigned.
