Whirlwind

It’s been a whirlwind of 12 weeks that started with the birth of my son.

My five-word self-description—Wife. Mother. Writer. Ninja. Squirrel.—is listed in order. I know, I know. Squirrel should be higher on the list. But that’s not my point today. Tomorrow, at 11:10 PM, my daughter turns three. It’s been an interesting year. We’ve had to switch child care, enroll in speech therapy, and dole out a decent…

C# Lab

I had a job interview recently. Before you ask, I’m not looking for a new job. I was emailed asking me to apply, I talked it over with my boss, and he said no harm in trying. So I tried. The job is for a C# programmer, and I’ve been Java for the past year…
