Friday, January 08, 2021      16 comments

Yes, I know it's not the first Friday of the year, but last Friday was New Year's Day - a holiday. This Friday is the end of a work-week for many (including me,) and as such, is something we should be thankful for. I got the hardware - moni... Read more

I am thankful my work is letting me into the building today to get the keyboard, mouse, monitors and docking station from my desk so I can set up a proper workstation at the new house. I am thankful I was able to buy the desk that I was tol... Read more

I really was not expecting the little project to take this long, but it's done and I ended up with another 13 hour day at work. Never did get out to shovel and I did see some blue sky out my office window late this afternoon. It didn't last... Read more

I went to bed early last night and still didn't want to get up when the alarm went off. I didn't roll back over though - I got up about 15 minutes after the alarm. Work wasn't as bad as it could have been today, either. I have a small proje... Read more

This time of year many people stop to take stock of how their year went. Did you accomplish the things you planned? Did you manage to make lemonade out of the lemons life tossed your way? I must say, 2020 did not go the way anyone planned ... Read more
Happy Boxing Day
Saturday, December 26, 2020      14 comments

Boxing Day isn't something most people in the US celebrate, but that's what the day after Christmas is called. The name comes from a time when the rich used to box up gifts to give to the poor. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants... Read more
Christmas Eve 2020

Work is over for the year and I am going to spend Christmas Eve relaxing, unwinding, reading, and playing games on the computer. I ran to the store for a few things during a break yesterday and they had re-arranged near the entryway and put... Read more
Hump Day - no, LAST Day
Wednesday, December 23, 2020      12 comments

Today won't be Hump Day for everyone due to Christmas being on Friday - a lot of people will have that off. If you don't, I hope you find or found a way to celebrate whichever holidays are important to you. Today is my last work-day of the... Read more

It's TWOsday - spun a lot of 2s today and it's Tuesday and it's two more work days until I'm off for the rest of the year. Work went much better yesterday. The code I had been fighting with over the weekend was tested on a test database tha... Read more

Not quite still at work - I did get to bed this morning, but yesterday was noon to midnight work and I need to get back to it shortly. I will be so glad when this is over. I want my life back.... Read more
Sleepy Saturday
Saturday, December 19, 2020      8 comments

Yesterday was the longest - 7 am until 1 am. I don't need to log on today until noon. That will give me time to run over to Aldi - I hate grocery shopping on a Saturday, but we are out of some things, not just low. Maybe tomorrow will do. I don'... Read more

Did you realize the next two Fridays are National holidays? Christmas is one week from today and New Year's Day is the Friday after that. I do have to work tomorrow - that will be a LONG day - and a shorter bit on Sunday, then only 3 days ... Read more
