It’s been a mad week. Sleepless, scarce personal space, constant demands. One of those weeks that I wonder what fool would choose to be a parent. But for slim glimmers in the midst (and no escape hatch), I’d be finished.

We forded a river of anxiety to get Royal into Graham’s room before he sleeps through the night, but we’ve made it to the far side! Yes, we’re still waking more than we want with a seven-month-old, but Graham’s graciously dealt with the intrusion and Royal has slept better in his bedroom than anywhere else.

I’ve added the Ubuntu font family for my site! What do you think? Snazzy.

On Victoria’s recommendation I began to use block-level, line, and indentation highlighting. I’ve found code navigation to be more effortless than ever. Thanks Victoria!

Victoria’s post reminds me that it’s about time I figured out how to set up a VPN. While I’m sure ExpressVPN is excellent, I’ll learn tons more by configuring my own WireGuard VPN server. It already comes with client support!

I so appreciate Blue Collar Praise from Common Hymnal. What endurance it takes to care for two small kids, work a full-time job, and keep the hope of spiritual revolution alive.

We dream of you on city streets,
 breathing again on our bones.
We dream of you at kitchen sinks,
  your glory filling our homes.

 We are not beasts of burden,
  we are children of grace.
 And the blue in our collars,
  is a garment of praise.

YES!!!

I disabled my Pi-hole for a few weeks because I didn’t have the network skills to fix an issue. But I’ve gained those skills and am happy to use this amazing software again! Well worth a donation.
