So we are closing on the house next week and then moving in a week later. At that point, I’ll have a 6 mile bike ride to work or a 45 minute bus ride, with a transfer. I’m going to opt for the bike ride. I’ve biked year round before, when I worked for the UW Arboretum and it was a five mile bike ride to and from work. The distance doesn’t bother me, the roads do. Madison is all about keeping the lakes surrounding Continue reading →
This house cannot come soon enough. In one month, we close. A few weeks after that, we officially move in. I just cannot wait to be so busy. Lately, Ellie and I have been just treading water in the evenings. We’re at a point where we don’t care to make our current place better, and we are unable to make our next place good. A lot of time for me has been spent on Pinterest. I want to find all the projects that we could Continue reading →
As the winter gets colder, snowier, more icy, and just downright unbearable, it seems the busses in Madison get less reliable.

When I get there, I wait to see how late the bus is going to be. Sometimes, it’s not on the board at all meaning I missed it. Other times, it’s still a Continue reading →
The new year came in and it came with a nice deep freeze and snow (Editor’s Note: Danny hates cold and snow and often ponders why he still lives in Wisconsin where both are abundant). Today, I had to make a split second decision, which I outsourced to a coworker with a simple, “Yes or no?” question. The question was, do I brave the cold and go for my walk? The answer was yes. So, despite the 0º F when I left for my lunchtime Continue reading →
The work day goes by a lot faster when you show up late. We had our first snow of the season last night, and while it was only a few inches, I ended up being 45 minutes late to work. I didn’t realize it would slow me down as much as it did. Everyone in Wisconsin forgets how to drive once it starts snowing and we all must travel no faster than 20 miles an hour, in a 55. Its frustrating. I wasn’t trying to Continue reading →
