215pm. I’m late again. yes, I know you all think I suck. I think work sucks. We’ve been moving equipment all morning long, so I’ve been away from my desk for hours. I did get a chance to hit the bar for my buddy’s ‘going away’ luncheon. Events like that are always bittersweet – happy to see somebody moving on to greener pastures, but sad to see them go.
The week has been a mixed blessing. No school for me, since I’m between semesters now, but I’ve been working on stuff around the house to fill my free time. I *think* I’m off school next week, too, but can’t rightly remember at the moment. It’d prolly do me some good to check the start date sometime soon.
I got a new computer at home, and it’s close to being fully functional. I’ve still got a few tweaks to implement, but it’s good for the most part. My old machine died the day after it got handed down. Blew the power supply, and I don’t have a replacement (yet).
The weekend is going to be chock full of yard work. I’ve got a truckload of wood chips and a truck load of topsoil sitting in the driveway at the moment. We’re leveling out the low spots and covering the exposed tree roots in the backyard. It’ll be cool when it’s done, but it’ll take a bit of work to complete. Once we’ve got the ground in good shape, next weekend we’re rolling out fresh sod over the whole thing.
I am trying to sneak out for a bit of shopping tomorrow morning, though. The expo center up the road has a hot-tub show and sale. I’m looking to get a new cover for the tub out back; one of the covers that comes with a hinge and a lift mechanism so I don’t have to flop it onto the ground anymore. I’m totally not sure what to expect for $$, so I may be flopping for a while to come.
It’s almost time to get outta here for the weekend. I need to serve my time and my friends at the ‘Hole tonight.
I know I’m late w/ the games, but dammm this is a good week. Addictive, all of ‘em.
