Gotta get back at this…

There’s been so much going on the last few days this might just be a dump post to catch everything up, I’ll probably miss a bunch too.

My birthday was last Saturday, the 28th year, it’s already begun and I feel like it shouldn’t be here yet. I feel like I’m getting older but not moving forward as fast as I always thought I would. I guess I just feel old or something and don’t know how/where to push forward right now. I’m sure in 20 years I’ll look back and wish I wouldn’t have pushed forward so much.

I wonder if I’ll still be writing then?

Saturday, Erin and I went out on the town so to speak, not a fancy thing, just out and about in Indy. We don’t do that much anymore, life gets in the way too much. We went to an auction first thing in the morning but didn’t stay long because things were just going for way too much money. After that we went to get her a new iPhone 3GS, I got my iPhone 4 Friday so she was itching for a new one too I think. We’re both pretty happy with each of our choices. We stopped at Lowes next and bought a new microwave, we had to do it, our old one took like 3 minutes to cook pizza rolls, now we can do it in 1. Then we went home, installed the new microwave, and chilled for a bit. Dinner at Logan’s and a quick grocery trip rounded out our day.

Sunday was my official birthday party or whatever you want to call it, family dinner basically. We had a good time. I did a good deed, and honestly it made me feel like I was making a difference and helping out someone who really needed it. I love that feeling. That selfless giving feeling that you get when you go out of your way to make a miracle happen for someone.

Last night, I went out with Kyle for a traditional guys night dinner, Hacienda and Best Buy. Had a pretty good time there too.

Work: What can I say about work other than it’s been stressful at times and dead at other times. Just not into talking about it now I guess.

Its odd to have old friends coming back into the picture now, we’ll see how that goes.

Courtney just headed off to Tasmania, it’s going to be a while before she gets back. I hope we can pick up right where we left off when she gets back.

I’d better get going… more forthcoming, including July 4th plans.

I don’t do this enough

Last time I really posted I was in the midst of my 11 day vacation, I planned to post everyday, my vacation ended 5 days ago.

In those days I just about got everything I wanted to get done. I even stayed up for 32 hours straight at one point. I couldn’t sleep one night so I got up, showered and headed out to get painting supplies at 430am. Meijer is dead then and the Lowes people aren’t very happy to mix paint at 630 in the morning. But I was home by 9am and began painting. I painted one wall in each room a darker color, in this case green, blue, and gray, then I painted the rest of the place a white-ish-gray-blue. I found out last night that in the right light, my walls look blue, blue and purple with light blue on the other walls. Never make paint selections at 630 in the morning. Sunlight makes all the difference.

After staying up for 32 hours I finally went to bed, got a good night’s sleep and was back on track. Most of my vacation I did exactly what I wanted to do, nothing. It was great to just sit around and relax mostly.

Since being back at work I’ve wished for a longer vacation. I went in to hell it seemed, a large machine was broken and our printer was on the fritz. I will cover this in detail on another post, but lets just say that Komo Machine/Siemens and HP are on my list this year.

I’ve also found that since I’ve been back, I’m more important at work than I thought. Much more managerial that I thought I was basically. I knew I had a role, but that role is growing at an accelerating rate. Always good to see. Things changing in this case are not so bad.

It’s the new year and life is starting again. The lull of the holiday craziness is over and changes are being made, both by us and for us. Some of us are continuing from where we were and others are starting anew.

I’ve rambled enough for tonight. As I said, when I’m done with HP and Komo/Siemens I’ll write about them. Their staff has much left to do to impress me.
