As this week comes to a close, I am glad I don't have to work over the weekend this week. One of my friend's daughter is Bat Mitzvah tomorrow. With the new restrictions, it will be over Zoom except for the family. The costume party he had planne... Read more

I am thankful for my health. I am thankful for my son's health. I am thankful we didn't have any snow stick around. I am thankful I have a good job that I can do from home. I am thankful for all of you - my Spark friends who ... Read more
Bactrian Hump Day

The Bactrian or Mongolian camel is the one with two humps. I spun a two for most of my bonus spins today, so it's a Bactrian Hump Day. It snowed lightly for a short time again yesterday morning, but none of it stuck. I am so not ready for w... Read more
Tuesday and I voted-by-mail
Tuesday, October 27, 2020      11 comments

I requested a mail-in ballot and it arrived last week. Last night I read all the directions and filled it in, put it in the envelope, and signed it. Knowing how erratic the P.O. delivery has been, I went onto the county clerk's website and found... Read more
Monday and lots to plan

I think I found THE house! It's not perfect - there's no apartment for my son, but there are enough rooms to use that won't be a problem and there are several places it will be easy and fairly inexpensive to make one. It's move-in ready, there'... Read more
Sunday - last one this month

Today I am driving back out to Rockford to look at houses with my friend. Today we will be looking at 4 houses all designed by Jesse Barloga - he was designing houses in the early part of last century, so these houses are all about 100 years old... Read more
Saturday and still working

I worked late last night, but others worked later as last night was a release to production. Today I need to load the 3 new client test files to UAT, but I need to make sure all the parts are in place before I do or I will have the same problems... Read more

Work wasn't so long yesterday. I got the urgent stuff done and today I can start testing the not-so-urgent files. These will be trickier since these are existing and I have to be careful not to impact production since these changes won't be goin... Read more
Thursday Thunderstorms
Thursday, October 22, 2020      10 comments

I was woken up before the alarm by the thunderstorm this morning - luckily, not too far before. Work continued crazy yesterday - at first it looked like I had fixed all the issues, but when I ran some data dumps, I could see something was ... Read more
Wednesday wishes

Long and busy day at work yesterday and will be another today. I wish I could get out of my chair more to walk around for more than one or two minutes at a time. Made for a very light exercise day for me since the fitbit won't count it unless it... Read more
Tuesday and off we go
Tuesday, October 20, 2020      8 comments

The client files I've been missing finally showed up just before lunchtime yesterday. That meant that even though I had already put in 4 hours before they got to me, I ended up putting another 8 hours in testing and debugging my code. I was half... Read more

Can't trust that day... I love that song by The Mamas and the Papas. They had such great harmonies. Monday is back to work. The client has been promising test files tomorrow every day last week and on Friday, they said Monday. We shall se... Read more
Lazy Sunday

Not doing much today - reading and some laundry. The laundry is done, so the rest of the day I will read until bedtime. Yesterday was a long day - I was on the road to Rockford before 6 and got to my friend's house just after 7. The movers ... Read more

Today will probably be nuts at work. I still had not gotten test files from the client when I logged off last night. If they do come today, I will finally be able to test my software and start loading to test the files. Clients do not always sen... Read more
Thursday Thanks

I am thankful that the delays in the work project are not being caused by me. I am thankful for all the people who came and helped re-arrange my garage last weekend. I am thankful my son is not bothered by the possibility of moving. ... Read more
