Personal Update for October 20, 2018

It has been another good week. Things are still going very well at work. I’m excited about what will be happening there.

Ufi is still doing well. With the nicer than expected weather we have been having, he has been able to play lots of fetch.

We took Emma to get her rabies shot this week and discovered she has a hematoma (a collection of blood outside blood vessels) on her right ear. For some reason, she likes scratching her ears. They aren’t dirty, but she keeps scratching. Also, she shakes her head a lot. If the hematoma keeps growing, Emma will need surgery.

Speaking of the nicer than expected weather, I was able to play basketball each of the last two days. I’m really enjoying this great late October weather.

I enrolled in an online program that offered free classes on making documents and websites accessible. They also have materials that prepare you for a couple of different certifications around accessibility. I’m looking forward to getting started. I love learning, and I know I’ll learn things that will help me at work.

After more than a week I got back on the treadmill today. Most of the break came from an electrical issue in the garage (where my exercise equipment lives). Don’t worry Mom, I won’t tell the story.

Tomorrow morning Mom, Aunt Barb, others, and I are going to a fundraising breakfast for the square dancing group Aunt Gabby used to attend. We go every year. It’s one of the ways we remember Gabby.

There is a game seven between the Brewers and Dodgers tonight. As a hardcore baseball fan, I’m very much looking forward to the game. As a fan of the underdog, I’m pulling for the Brewers.

For my friends living in Oregon, I wrote a post announcing how I’m voting on the statewide ballot questions and detailing the reasons why I’m voting the way I’m voting.

I strongly recommend everyone watch the PBS documentary Dark Money.

That’s what I have for now. I hope all of you are having a great week.
