They finally fixed the computer problem at work - when this morning, all but 2 of my coworkers had the same problem.  I knew it wasn't me.  Maybe they'll listen next time (but I doubt it).

I'm hoping for a quiet weekend this weekend, go see a movie, catch up on some tv, cleanup a bit in the house - we need it.

Prepping for a potluck in our tiny kitchen isn't fun.  I did it though, so tomorrow I'm taking 'bloody eyeballs'. :)

(turkey meatballs, stuffed with a black olive and poached, then nestled in some marinara sauce).

Oh, and they still haven't figured out my connection problem at work.  I can work from home, tho.  Which is beyond annoying.

For two days now, my work computer won't connect to the work network.  I've had to come home to work.  I certainly didn't change anything, but they can't figure it out.  I can connect remotely, but not actually at work.

That kind of puts a damper on the things I can do.  I've been really tired the last two days, too.  I doubt that's related though :)

Well, it's been fun

But it's time to go home.  It was good to hang out with the folks for a while, and see my sibs, but I'm very ready to be in my own house and my own bed.

I'm sure work is going to be just as intense, if not more so, but such is the price of fame :)

Almost done

One more day of all day meetings, and I'll have part of the weekend free.  Heading home Sunday night.  The time here has just flown by.  Which I guess is both good and bad.  Still, I'm ready to be home in my own house and bed.

Tuesday, October 22, 2013


mmmmm.  'nuff said :)

Another long day at work, prepping this demo.  We actually got some work done, but have more to do.  AND I have a simultaneous meeting with other folks about the other project.  Don't know how I'm going to be split in two!

Well, not at home, but here in Denver.  I'm glad it did snow long, and I'm glad it didn't stick.  I'm not ready for snow.

I played LOTRO on and off during the day - Had lunch with almost the whole family, watched some tv, played some more LOTRO.  Basically, just a calm quiet day.

Tomorrow...that'll be a different story.

Welcome to Denver. Again.

The flight out wasn't that bad.  I paid extra to have extra leg room in the exit row, so I had a little more comfort.  I forgot how far the airport was from Mom and Dad's, though, so I'll have to remember that when I leave.

We had Chick-fil-a for dinner.  I had the nuggets this time, instead of my usual.  They weren't too bad!  We watched Minority Report after dinner, since there was pretty much nothing on tv.

Tomorrow's supposed to be rainy/snowy, so I'll probably just hang out.  Monday,,,,I hope won't be a long day, but I bet it will be a draining one!

Changing Seasons

Well, it's a sign the seasons are changing.  I had to turn on the furnace tonight when I got home tonight.

Another busy day

Rain in the morning, cleared off to have a nice sunny, but kinda cool day.  Busy at work, so I didn't get much in the way of distractions.

After work, helped the wife pack up her stuff for her trip to her mom's this weekend.  I'm going to pack my stuff Friday night.  Shouldn't take very long - I don't need 5 pairs of shoes, for example.

Watched a little tv after that and played LOTRO till bedtime.

Rainy Day

Rained most of the day today, which didn't matter to me much because I was pretty much chained to my desk.

A quick dinner of soup and crackers, a couple tv shows, a little bit of LOTRO, and bed.

I'm sensing a pattern :)

Grey Day

A lot of work today, kept me hopping. Plus we had several people out, so that made me pay closer attention to what was going on.

At least the tire thing was simple - apparently the sensors weren't registered with the car's computer.  They went out, did something, and 10 minutes later, it was all good.  So, at least that is done.  Tomorrow is going to be another busy day.  Probably going to be swamped all the way up to Friday.

At least I can't complain of being bored :)

Calm before the storm

Quiet day at home today.  I played DDO in the monring, helped with dishes and laundry, watched some tv, got the oil changed on the car, watched a little more tv, played LOTRO in the evening.

Tomorrow is a busy day at work, plus I have to leave early to get the tire sensor problem fixed.  Then it looks like I have to reschedule my cavity appt, and make my plane ticket and car rental reservations for my trip to denver.  All in one day.  Then the rest of the work is a set of hours long meetings, and getting everything ready for my trip.

I guess that's what they pay me the big bucks for!

Wicked was wicked

Got the tires changed today, but as we were coming home tonight, a warning light came on for the pressure system, so I have to take the car back after work on Monday.

Same old song and dance

and I don't dance all that great.  Working out the dates for my next work trip to Denver, figuring out when I can get the car worked on so she can go to Indiana.  Tomorrow, we're going to see Wicked downtown.  That will be fun.

Need to try and get some rest, too!

Wednesday, October 9, 2013


Finally got a little support at work, so that I can focus on these two really super-duper-mega important projects, and get a little breathing room.

Doesn't help all the stuff I have to do at home, tho.  I have to get new tires for the car, and it looks like one of the fans in the computer case is dying.  Plus Directv wants to replace our ancient receivers, so I have to do that when they arrive.

But at least I can get some work done :)

Hope I'm not getting sick

Really tired and drained lately.  Work was ok, busy, but ok.  Didn't do much after work, being so tired.  We'll see if it gets better or worse.

A cavity and I have to have another wisdom tooth removed.

But I got my cleanings moved from quarterly to every six months, so that's something.

Sunday, October 6, 2013

Got some housework done

Played DDO in the morning, then did some housecleaning.  After lunch, I wasn't feeling that well, so I kind of vegged in front of the computer for a while.

We went out and did a quick grocery shopping trip, then had a small dinner since it was late.

I get to go to the dentist tomorrow.  Always a fun time there.

Not much of a day today

it rained and we stayed inside.  I played Eve for most of the morning, watched all three back to the future movies, and waited for updates about grandma.

We did do a little laundry, some dishes, watched a little tv.  Didn't do as much house work as I really wanted tho.  Well, maybe tomorrow.

Friday, October 4, 2013


Finally.  Work was rather rough - intense focus on updating the website for over 5 hours.  Now, though, I can spend the weekend not thinking about work!

Mmmmm. Grilled Cheese

That's what we had for dinner tonight.  After the storms last night, it just felt kind of right.  Watched a little tv, played a little on the computer. 

This weekend is a stay-at-home weekend, getting some cleaning done that we've been putting off, and probably catching up a little more on tv watching, so we don't run out of space :)

Ok day, but...

...rainy night.  Storms rolled through, causing at least one show not to record due to loss of signal.  This is one time that cable would win over satellite.

Work was a little calmer, but still covering for someone else.  I'm getting ready to start yet another new project, and haven't even finished the last two.  it's a little nuts!

The Saga Continues...

...I swear I need to retire soon.  I'm getting the most asinine questions at work, constantly hounded by people who should know better.  ugh.

We had pizza for dinner, watched a little tv, then I played LOTRO again.  At least there I can escape, if just for a little while.
