Big tree

Here’s Loyal Reader Number Four and a really big tree. Taken at our last campout, of course.

No post yesterday. The Morrowlife blog was off the air! It turns out that the modem quit (for the second time in about a week!) and when Loyal Reader Number One reset it, it changed IP addresses on us. I had to get into my DNS service and reset it. Which reminded me I need to get the automatic DDNS service working again. Sigh.

By the way, I missed the no-post post from Anonymous. Where are you, Anon?

The work week from heck is winding down, and tomorrow should be an easy one. Let’s see, I had an all-day gummint audit on Tuesday (went fine, as far as I know), an all-day technical coaching seminar on Wednesday (went longer than scheduled, but was useful), and spent all the live-long day giving people their performance appraisals today. I have one more to do tomorrow morning and I’ll be done! I also got some monetary awards for people into the computer this afternoon, which I hope to hand out tomorrow. Busy, busy, busy.

Speaking of monetary awards, I got two today! One from each of my bosses. I’m not exactly sure they knew about each other’s award, but I’m okay with that. One of them gave me the money for getting some good things done this year, and the other one gave me the money basically for putting up with the first one all year. I won’t say which was which.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to putting the money to good use. Don’t know how yet. Maybe I’ll buy a new car.

Speaking of which, I need to buy a new car next summer, but for the first time in my life, I can’t think of a single one I want. Nothing being made by anybody interests me in the slightest. And that’s a scary feeling. Any thoughts from my Loyal Readers on a new car I might like better than the ones I already have?

Or maybe I’ll buy a new computer. A Mac Pro might be nice, or maybe a MacBook or MacBook Pro. Or maybe not.

Or maybe I should spend it on gum and candy instead.

Anyway. Time for sour cream chocolate chip pie. See you tomorrow.

UPDATE: Happy birthday, Loyal Reader Number Nine!
