A packed Saturday

I got up bright and early this morning, got started with laundry then did a few errands. Post office, bank, Best Buy then drove all the way to Kenmore Camera to pick up a really cool Crumpler camera bag for my new DSLR. It was worth the drive, I think it's going to come in really handy. After that trip, I headed home to do a little more packing for the trip. Did some yardwork, then cleaned before heading to Toma's birthday party.

We ended up at a Sushi restaurant, not my favorite type of place, but it ended up being really good. I think that's probably because I had tempura and teriyaki instead of Sushi. It was a fun surprise party, and there ended up being about 16 or so people that showed up (none of whom the birthday girl knew were coming).

On the way home, we stopped at Mike's (which isn't really on the way, but Heather had left her sweater there at his last party and we needed to get it). One last shopping stop on the way home and I was finally ready to finish everything up. It looks like I'll be in bed by midnight, which is actually better than I was expecting.

Tomorrow: The fun begins!

Testing phone pictures again

Just wanted to make sure camera phone pictures were still working on this new site. They seem to be, as this is clearly a picture of my Christmas tree I took on Christmas Day (and not just a big Red X).

Looks like I fixed the images. Hosting a blog with Google is all sorts of difficult.

Today I'm telecommuting, so I could stay home and wait for UPS all day today. That has enabled me to do some laundry, work on my new computer a bit and even clean up the office a little.

If only I could do this every day.

Under Construction

I made a few changes to this blog and none of the images are working right now. I'm not sure how exactly to fix this, but for now, I've taken down all the links to this site that I can think of.

Fun times.

A new year...

Starting off the year with a post to this thing, just because I don't write here rarely enough. My most important (public) resolution this year is to try to keep track of stuff a little better, something this blog is handy for.

Woke up today a little tired from last night's festivities, but not too much. Heather brought me breakfast in bed (what a nice way to start the new year) and then I got up to try and tackle the mess that is my office.

I got a new PC and I'm still moving files from the old one onto this computer. It's taken all morning and most of the day yesterday as well. Next, I have to move files off two other old PCs that I was using pretty much exclusively as storage servers. There's no reason for them anymore, as I now have over 2TB of storage at my disposal, plus 1.5TB of external backup.

When I'm done with this, I'll do a little more cleaning, then maybe play a few games. I should also exercise at some point today (this being New Year's Day and all)....whether that will come in the form of an actual trip to the gym or just some DDR/Wii Fit at home remains to be seen.
