You know, keeping a weblog, or an online journal, or whatever you want to call it, is an exercise in inertia. Others have noted it before, and I'm here to echo their observations. When you're making daily entries, when you have something to say, then it's difficult to not be posting entries. But when you become distracted and the business of everyday life grabs hold, it's difficult to find time to post entries.
The last few weeks have been busy and fun.
Thanksgiving weekend was busy, though I don't remember much of what I did (other than get sick again).
The weekend after Thanksgiving, I finally got the Weekend of Nothing that I had been craving for so long. I watched rugby and French soccer on television. I played many hours of Starcraft. I read some comic books (it's been ages since I've done that!). It was great, and much needed.
Last weekend, Kris and I hosted our annual Friend Thanksgiving. It was a fun evening, though not as friend-filled as we had planned.
Kris and I have accumulated the cash we had budgeted to remodel our bathroom. Unfortunately, to have somebody else do the job would cost about twice as much as we had guessed. We have more than enough money if we're willing to do the work ourselves, but we're not handy! Michael and Dave have each volunteered to help, and Nick (who has remodeled a bathroom by himself) says that the task isn't as daunting as it might appear. We'll spend the next month or two prioritizing the various facets of the job, and then we'll decide on a plan of attack.
Computer Resources has slowed down somewhat, which is fine considering the holiday season is upon us. I am nearly finished with my second client web site, and I just got a call from somebody else who is interested in having me remodel a site. (And I know of a fourth company that might use my skills on their site.) This is Good, certainly, and may allow me to take some work to California with me for vacation.
I've also been redesigning the Computer Resources web site. The current layout was meant as a placeholder layout, and I'd like something more extensive. I've got a template created, and now need to create the content to fill the template before actually implementing it. What's more, I'm going to be converting this journal from Blogger to Greymatter when I finally get up some gumption to do so. Maybe in the next couple of days.
Tomorrow I meet with Prospective Web Client Number Three. They want a dynamic PHP system for displaying inventory on the web. I think. We'll see.
