“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Recovery time

Took last night as some relaxation time with my wife, and for what's left of my brain... figured I'd earned it after the past few days.

Watched some simple TV, ate food, and just unwound - very much needed.

Today had to play the court game again - had fun with it, since I had an attorney trying to twist my words, leave out stuff I had said and all of that - it didn't work but I always enjoy the challenge. I learned early on in this career not to take it personally - they have a job to do, and it's part of our system. But it's still frustrating at time, because a lot can depend on how much attention the judge is paying to things, and all of that... still, like I said, it's part of the game.

Poor little Kyleigh (currently known as the snot monster) has a cold - and had to combine that with a doctor's visit and shots today :( So needless to say, she wasn't feeling good this afternoon. I ended up just letting her sleep in my arms as I lay on the couch, since it was the only way she would be calm. Still, we both managed a few hours sleep out of it, so it worked out. Hopefully the next day or two she'll feel better. Jacob has the same cold, but is dealing with it better - he's at the age where a river of mucus running down his face isn't really slowing him down...

Not too much else to share tonight, my brain is still in recovery mode. Working on updating a blogroll here, only through the B's so far so need to finish the rest tomorrow.

Bye for now to my reader.
