What can I say? It’s good to be away once in a while. Sorry to borrow the old ‘too many balls in the air’ metaphor, but I’ve been juggling a lot of things of late and it was nice to set just one thing aside. This is, I think, the first time I’ve ever been away for an entire month. What have I been up to?
- Work was crazygonuts busy for a month and a half after we got back from the cruise. It’s calmed significantly since and is actually manageable now… but I'm sure I’ve just jinxed it just now by saying as much.
- I’ve been teaching myself some of that crazy CSS that the kids are so big on these days. I scored Web Design in a Nutshell from the library, and it’s been a strangely compelling read. It was all theory and no practice at first… until I scored a little web design project to work on. I’m hoping to launch the site in about a week’s time, and after that I can turn my efforts to the old Touch You Last shack.
- More recently, we’ve been on the road. We drove back to Georgetown this weekend for Sarah’s cousin’s first communion, and we also squeezed in a bunch of long overdue visits. Also: I got to watch a sparkplug literally shoot out of my engine at one point this weekend. But after a towing, a new sparkplug, and a gallon of Elmer’s Sparkplug Glue, the car was road-worthy again.
That doesn’t really account for an entire month. Hmm. Well, when I wasn’t engaged in any of the above, I was either:
- Chilling out
- Relaxing all cool
- Shooting some b-ball outside of the school
