Time flies when you’re working. It’s been 12 days since my last blog post and I don’t know where the time went. Christopher turned 10 months old yesterday. He said ‘mamama’ today. I’m trying to teach him that ‘mama’ is me Image┬áThomas just put him down for a nap and he’s not too crazy about it. He sits up and stands up on his own, then doesn’t know he needs to lay down to go to sleep. He’s a bright kid, but not that bright.

It’s time to go to bed … I never got back to the computer to finish my blog entry


05/09/06 The end of West Wing May 9, 2006

Ok, so I’m a little behind in my TV watching … Thomas & I just watched the second to last episode of West Wing. I am so sad that show is ending. I just LOVE the writing! We had to pause the show three times because we were laughing so hard! I admit that the past couple of seasons were a little slow, but this last season really got the show back into gear. I guess it’s like redoing something in your house, you don’t get to it until you put the house up for sale.

So I finally get my TiVo and it working then I find out they’ve come out with a new TiVo with TWO tuners! I could just scream!!! I NEED THAT!!! Especially for this Sunday. What with the Survivor Finale AND the West Wing finale. CRAP!!!

My week off from school just went too fast. It’s Tuesday and I just started ACC440, or Intermediate Accounting. I am actually going to have to read stuff and think for this class. This is starting to get out of the realm of what I know. Ok smarta**, I should have done the same for the last class too.

Work is continuing to be good. I leased a postage meter last week, and I’m on the search for a good fax machine this week. I also have to get credit card software. We still use one of those antiquated swipe machines. Lame-o-rama! And always on the back burner is looking for new software. Life is never dull. I’m about half way through month end close and it’s the 9th. Someone commented that I was ahead of the game. I remarked that I was accustomed to having financials done by the +5 work day after the end of the month Those days are over.

I got antibiotics for my sinus infection … the green monster in my nose is mostly gone

Gotta go read for school … if I can keep my eyes open.

I just love sunshine! It has been glorious up here … even with the brisk wind this week. And the days are long enough that I don’t want to be inside during the early part of the evening.

There is just a ton of stuff to do at work. I am trying to get a bunch of stuff automated. Some things are easier to accomplish than others. We are using a bank I wouldn’t necessarily use, but that isn’t my decision. I just bought a new postage meter and I get to buy a scanner with a document feeder and a new fax machine. I’m going to Portland for 2 days for training in a couple of weeks. Oh, and I’m trying to do month-end.

Christopher has to go to the allergist later this month. The poor guy has my allergies. I think he’s more miserable than I am. At least I can blow my nose. We have to nebulize him every morning. He HATES it!

I missed my art group last week. I didn’t know we had the boys that night (because of Thomas’ birthday) and it just seemed like all hell broke loose. I am bummed, because I like iris folding and I needed to do something crafty with other people. I never seem to do it at home, because I don’t know what to do. I think I have too many choices. It’s nice to just have a project given to you to play with.

I finished ACC423 and start ACC440 on Tuesday. I really need the week off between classes to get my brain to recharge. I don’t think I did that well in ACC423. Starting a new job and not being able to do homework at work is taking a toll. I’ll be lucky if I get a B on my final It seems as if the weekends just slip by and I never get to my computer to do any school work. I have the best of intentions, but then it’s Sunday night and … nothing.
