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 Thomas 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.
