Something is Around the Corner…!

1. Creativity.
2. Work.
3. Upcoming vacation.

It snowed yesterday for twelve hours straight. I left early for work thinking I’d have to clear all the snow off my Vue and let it warm up, but there was no snow to be found. [sarcasm] WTF? How can it snow for so long without leaving evidence behind? Oh, that’s right, this is Minnesota. [end sarcasm]

Look at what time it is. I should have been in bed over an hour ago, but my mind is working — it has been all night.

I was “forced” into doing my work at work. I needed that kick in the butt… after I finished, I realized how quickly time went by. I happened to bring my jump drive with me and I started playing with coding…for the first time in AGES. And you know what? I loved every minute of it. So much, in fact, that I lost track of time and stayed overtime (which I will not be paid).

Anxious to start again, I made my way home, forgetting that it is Tuesday. Tuesday is the worst day of the week, not only because I can’t play WoW, but because I have to haul myself and Uncle to downtown Minneapolis. Precious “me” time of the week gone. I am working my fingers, producing another of my wonderful designs; it will be minimalistic, more so than the current one. (I love my current design, perhaps that’s why it’s been up for three years.)

Give me a few days — maybe through the end of the month, depending on how my creativity flows, to get it up.

Back to work. I was greeted by the woman I’ve seen a few times. First thought is “Oh shit, you’re firing me?” But it was nothing. She was there since she got a new work laptop and needed help setting it up. I got my orders for the night, initialize (erase existing data and make fresh) computer tapes. I hate, hate, HATE doing it, but the only reason it got done was because I had my one boss there; and I know I wouldn’t have been able to get away with doing nothing for an hour. Like I said, time flew by. I think being bored for such a long time, yet boredom going by quickly surprised me. And that’s when the creativity hit me.

Next week I’m going on “vacation.” I classify anything as being away from work as “vacation.” But in this case, I will be on what the average Joe considers vacation since I will be out of state and in a hotel. Lovely Madison. Chicago. 🙂 I love my Chicago. Did someone say “Indianapolis?” Yeah, that … place. I’m thinking of skipping Chicago/I-polis and ending up somewhere else to surprise *him* which is why I can’t tell him I’m leaving. (He knows that if I’m going east I may as well travel the extra X hours and end up in Y.) *le sigh*

…..or, I can do what I do best 🙂 Visit somewhere I have not been before.

The queen size bed frame is coming today. I’ve never seen it, but the price was right. I’ll finally have my comfy bed back! And then I’ll get the “right amount” of sleep that maybe I’ll actually feel normal for once.


k, needz sleep.

I Need Money

Not blogging in a while makes me realize how much stuff I need to do with the blog. I’ve been meaning to update for a few months, and in that time I’ve probably touched two lines of code. Right now I’m thinking, “where’s my darn ‘preview’ button?”

I went to Massachusetts over Thanksgiving. The drive to and from sucked. I meant to stay three nights but ended up being more like seven. The weird thing is that I want to go back! I’m trying to get Rob to send out his resume to other places than Minneapolis. I’ve suggested Boston (he liked names of companies near my hotel) and Dallas (no snow), but it doesn’t sound like he may need to:

Rob got some good news the other night…from his first company. I hope they’ll hire him back.


I’m getting married on Saturday. I never though the day would come; time moves too slowly! Now I’m so excited I can’t sleep. I am putting together the last details (music, favors, place cards) and then the planning is finally over… and the big day comes.

My uncle is coming up from way southern Texas on Wednesday (that’s tomorrow!). Wow, I’m so excited to meet people I’ve never seen in a long time. A friend from high school is coming to the wedding. I sent an invitation and wasn’t sure if she would show up because she waited until the very last minute to respond. My mom was going to make it a surprise, but I noticed her name on the list when I was going through final counts.

After the wedding I plan on going on a mini vacation near Albany, New York. I’ll spend three nights at the hotel, plus the two overnights from driving. I’m excited for the vacation too that I might not even need the overnight of rest. But I’ll be safe, I promise.

I’m so excited I can’t even write a good entry…I’m like a kid in a candy store!
