It’s been one heck of a week. We’ve been working to get ready for Heroes at the same time things go nuts at my regular job! I’m glad to have the work, but it’s been so intense that it’s hard to get anything done after getting home!
Thankfully, things are calming down. Jobs are being finished and my coworker is back from vacation, so the workload is easing up. Too bad all the stress has caused the crud I was fighting to come back. I’m at the doctor now to get checked out. There is still the question wether these periodic infections have really been caused by my teeth. Now that my tooth has been fixed, we just need to stomp out this latest infection and see if it stays gone.
Yeah, it’s been a strange one.
There have been some good bits though. I have family visiting from California, it’s the first time I’ve actually had any of them come to visit in the 20 years I’ve been down here. We picked them up from the airport, brought them to their hotel and then took them out to the Porter for dinner. I am happy to say that they did their normal great job!
Time to get some sleep, tomorrow might get interesting.
I’m still winding down after a long week of hardcore geeking. Monday was good, I was able to catch up on comics before going to the Drink & Draw with Angela later that night. Tuesday, I must say, was a rough one. The storms kept us awake all night and the power was out once I got there.
That was when things got really interesting. I’ll save the chapter and verse on all of it, but basically I had to finally take care of some old Unix issues that have been outstanding for years now at work. It’s been a real pain in the ass, but progress was made.
I look forward to doing some non-technical stuff this weekend.
It’s warm tonight, warm and stuffy. A storm is near and it will cool things down, if it ever gets here.
We did the Drink & Draw at the Mellow Mushroom in Decatur this evening. It was fun, the food was great and Chris & Miracole did their usual great job with costumes and poses. I didn’t do as well as other times with drawing. I think I managed to tire my hand out with finishing two comics this afternoon. That’s ok though, it was still worth going.
Today is my brother Patrick’s 47th birthday. It’s still hard for me to think of him as that age. I think like everybody, we kinda freeze people that we don’t see on a regular basis at the age when we did. I know my family does that to me as well and I have worked for a long time to get past that. Anyway, I called him today to wish him a happy birthday. I may not see him much these days, but I still care for him.
Things have been good lately and I’m looking forward to April and May. There are a lot of ideas that I’m hoping to bring about and I’ll be curious to see how it finally plays out.
For those that have a lot of personal or family history that is before the digital age, this is a very good solution. It may not be as cheap as doing it yourself, but it will be better quality.
