I’m back

I’m back from my mini-vacation!

Portland was nice, the wedding was great, and it was good to hang out with my Dad and his new bride, Jennifer!

If you ever get to Portland, make sure to eat at the Black Bear Diner.  The prices are good, the portions are obscene, and the food is pretty damn good (well, at least the prime rib was).

We took it pretty easy on the drive. It took 6 1/2 hours to drive down and 8 1/2 hours to drive back (we stopped a lot… looked around.. and enjoyed the trip).

Today, I return to work.

We all gotta duck... when the shit hit's the fan!

If it could go wrong… it has.

I’m currently buried in e-mail hell (I’m trying to mine the important things out of my inbox), and several critical things came up during my 3 work days off. Heaven forbid I actually ever try to take a week off.


Other news: my youngest son, Skylar, celebrated his 14th birthday yesterday. Being that he’s a little geek (go figure), he wanted games for his PC. I picked up a copy of World of Warcraft (plus a pre-paid game card), Doom 3 – Resurrection of Evil, and Quake 4 for him. He also got Half-Life 2 – Episode One and the new Super Mario Brothers for his Nintendo DS.

Yup… he’s one happy kid.

    Welcome back!

    Sorry to hear about work. It’s been a bit like that for me too, but knowing you, you’ll sort it out 🙂

    It’s slowly getting back to normal.

    We’re currently trying to plan a move (we purchased a new building in the next town and are moving the entire company). Getting my data center ready is taking a lot of time, and all the other issues that happen daily are making the move process rather maddening.

    It’s all good though… I’ll figure it out.
