Welcome to Glenn's Blog!

Here I will periodically post random thoughts and stories about what's going on in my life and the world around me. As if anyone cared. But seriously, you've found your way here, so hopefully you will enjoy at least some of what I have to say, even if you aren't entirely interested in it. At the least, it should be a good way to waste time.

Of course, you can visit my website for more info about me, or feel free to email me anytime.

Two More Weeks

Well the semester is humming right along, we've only got two weeks more and then finals. Whew. I'm glad it's almost over. Though I suppose I say that most semesters. It's always nice to look forward to the end, where I'll finally have time to breathe. April has been tough. Not only with the plethora of concerts and events here, but also because everyone my family has spent part of it being sick. It's my turn now; I seem to have caught a small cold. I guess it was my time. Thankfully my symptoms have been mild compared to everyone else's. I'm at work at the moment, and we have two concerts today, but I'll probably be able to steal away around 2pm and get some much needed rest.

The last time I posted I was talking a bit about our cat Minnie, whose health was in somewhat of a downward spiral. Unfortunately she passed on April 7. I actually spoke to her on the phone, more or less, just a few minutes before she died. Whitney had called and we were discussing options of having to put her down, which I was not looking forward to. She was meowing softly but persistently in the background, so Whintey picked her up onto the bed and put the phone on speaker so she could 'talk' to me. She meowed a few times to me after I said hello, and then we ended the call. Five minutes later Whitney called and said she just died. I guess in some ways I was thankful. Thankful that she was able to go on her own, and without too much suffering. That's the best I could have hoped for. It was a sad loss though. She was a part of our family for a long time, and although with the arrival of Connor she mostly stayed away, she was still our baby.

But life moves on.

Speaking of moving on, time to get some stuff done to wrap up for today, as well as for the week. Last Golden Empire this Saturday, and I just about have enough people signed up to run it. Unfortunately with so many events on Friday, I can't do much pre-setup for it then. So it will be an extra early day this Saturday. Sigh. So it goes. But hey, only two more weeks until my late nights and extra weekends will cease. Then I can start ramping up for the fall semester...does it ever end??
