There is so much neglect happening to my weblog. My dad misses it. I really should update it more often, if not for any other reason than to make my dad happy. I know it makes him happy, because he tells me that he misses it when I don’t update. He feels out of touch.
Mom and Dad and George, and my neice Kayla are in Mexico this week. I’m so excited for them. They’re there with an organization called people building people, I think, their main goal is to build a house during the next week.
Our trip to Ohio last weekend was one of the most relaxing stays we’ve ever had there. It always seems like we try to fit so much into one small weekend that we spend more time running and planning that relaxing and visiting. Well not this weekend, and we got most of the visiting accomplished, which is more that we usually get. It’s great to know that we have friends there, couples that now have kids, that are truly interested in how we’re doing, and seem to want to have us around at least while we’re there. We miss them.
Last week at work I spent most of my spare time working on writing macros to automate a large amount of our ticketing procedures. This week it doesn’t work at all. I’ve worked and reworked the macros, and I just can’t seem to make them work correctly. Perhaps if Doug purchases licenses for the software than we can get some support for it. This week Doug was out of the office, I spent some time watching a few DVD’s during lunch, didn’t finish it at all. I’ve also been trying to figure out how to make backup copies of my DVD’s, but every time I try to do that it fails.
I had a few job leads thanks to an Uncle, I filled out an application and submitted it along with a resume to him. He mentioned that he’d give the application right to his manager, who has 2 positions open in their department alone. That was over 2 weeks ago. I still haven’t heard anything. I’m still a contractor, coming up on my one year anniversary with this company, would’ve been 8 months as an employee had I been hired on January 1st like was arranged. I begin to wonder how much longer should I wait. But then I realize that I’m happy there, and it’s much better than not having a job at all.
I’m making this post using the CleverCactus software again. It’s not any better than any of the other blogging tools, it’s just different. Trying to wrap my head around a new UI and new concepts… not sure what is so special about it, but it’s definately piqued my interest.
We’re having our small group picnic at our place tomorrow, Amy’s been cleaning like a mad woman. Me, sitting on my ass as normal. I have such a wonderful wife, and she barely puts up with me.
