New Computer

Jan 12, 2011 in Random

We are finally getting a new computer!  Well actually, we are getting all the pieces of a computer and Mike is going to build it himself.

Mike has never built a computer before.  He has been very successful at fixing our laptop however.

So instead of starting with an easy first build, he went crazy with all the high end stuff and numerous gadgets, including a solid state drive and is even setting up a raid 1 system. All very intense for the first one.

Crazily enough, I have no doubt he’ll be able to build a rockin machine! Excited!

PS. I’m not sure building your own computer is actually any cheaper then buying a pre-assembled one…

I suck at this blogging thing….

Now for a little nonsense -

What rolls down stairs
alone or in pairs,
and over your neighbor’s dog?
What’s great for a snack,
And fits on your back?
It’s Blog, Blog, Blog!!

It’s Bloooo-ooog, it’s Bloooo-ooog,
It’s big, it’s heavy, it’s wood.
It’s Blooo-ooog, it’s Blooo-ooog, it’s better than bad, it’s good!!

Everyone wants a Blog
You’re gonna love it, Blog
Come on and get your Blog
Everyone needs a Blog
Blog Blog Blog


Freak Out!

Updating the list (10-27-10) Another update (11-02-10)

How did I end up with so much on my plate?! I thought fall was supposed to slow down a bit!

Work is going absolutely insanely busy. So much so that we just hired a temp person to help me out. I still don’t think I’ll be able to get caught up. – I should be caught up, to a point, by the end of this week! HAHAHA! I went from 95% caught up to 50% due to a change in the design. arg!!

I’m designing a house and the due date is suddenly upon me. Eep! Having fun though and finally making some progress and should get easier and go faster as I go.

I’m surveying and doing as-built drawings for my friends’ new climbing gym, due in 2 weeks. Done! But now I’m a consultant on design and codes…

I have chalk bag orders with due dates in Oct. I need to work on my Etsy site and blog to hopefully support and build my ‘business’. Someday… eventually… Oct chalk bags are done. Now I have 2 or 3 for Nov. no further on the websites though

I have to finish upgrading Mike’s chalk bag – Done!

I need to sew our Halloween costumes. Due by Halloween of course. This will be a last minute finish… Done with some wiggle room and they were awesome. Now, what should I be next year?

My great-aunt Fern has moved from her home to a nursing home and I’m helping to sell some of her semi-valuable items. All I’ve accomplished so far is to collect said items. No progress

I have 4 family members that may not live past Christmas, or Halloween even… One down, 3 to go. Two down, two to go.

My cat is getting worse, no idea how long that will take, she’s hung on much much longer than I ever expected. Nothing new.

I have two climbing gatherings to attend this month, one being in Arkansas. Done and Done. Both were much fun. That rhymes.

In one weekend, I have 2 birthday parties, art opening, climbing comp/fundraiser and baby shower to attend. Invited to more stuff that weekend, but don’t see it all happening. All the cool events were attended.

Need to make it to the gym at least once a week (not being good at that one). Don’t think I’ve improved here, but at least i got outside a couple times.

And I need to make some time in there to either relax or hyperventilate… A little of both has been accomplished.


Complete Randomness

Aug 24, 2010 in Random

I just started a new page that is nothing more than random quotes, thoughts etc; stuff I like and randomly think about. I started with a couple quotes and intend to add to the list periodically. Check it out today and be sure to check back for more from time to time. Feel free to add your own randoms in the comments. Hopefully it turns into something fun!

It’s Been a While

Jun 07, 2010 in Random

So it’s been a very long time since my last post (not as long as Annie however… ahem…)

I really don’t have a lot I want to blog about at the moment though so I will go with this -

I just ate a really great sandwich from the restaurant below my office. Wasn’t great FOR me, but tasty none the less. :)
