Just the latest stuff|
I was going to change my header image and blog page look, just for the sake of changing it..but I like it, and I think if I tried to change it, I'd end up with some blue/orange combination, nothing complicated, simple and clean look, so...no changes here.
Changes elsewhere...The job has gotten so much better. Had a positive meeting with the boss about why the workplace was "negative feeling" and I think we're on the road to working well as a team. Encouraging, at last. The house - still figuring out if we can remodel/add on to this house somehow, or if we want to build a new house and...
Again, I am a lousy blogger. I think it's been over 2 months since my last post. What can I say?
I told Matt I would put this on here, so here you go.
We went camping and white water rafting last week in Idaho. It was more beautiful than a lot of places I've been...everyone should go sometime. They set up our tents, cooked our food, steered our boats, did our dishes, etc, etc. All we had to do was roll up our sleeping bag in the morning and get dressed for the river. Yep, that's about it.
BUT, the best thing about the trip...4 days and three nights on the river, sleeping...
Nothing to report
I have nothing to say tonight, but I feel like I've been neglecting my poor blog and blogger friends, so I thought I'd at least leave a note to say, "Hi. I'm still alive. Our internet connection is extremely slow out here. The job is going okay. The house is okay. We're okay."
Busy weeks coming up - we'll be traveling 3 out of the next 3 weekends. Good trips though. Family, friends, etc. Fort Worth, Dallas and Plano this weekend, Phoenix the next, and Fort Worth again the next. I wish you could earn frequent driver miles on your car or something. (Phoenix by plane...
All work and no...anything else
So, this is the reason there has not been an update lately: other than working in the yard or hanging out at camp with folks, our internet access at home is stinkin' slow, and I can't use my connection at work for any type of personal use. Therein lies our topic.
The short version: a regular 8 hour work day, not allowed to write personal emails from my work email account, not allowed to write personal emails from my own personal email account, not allowed to use the office phone for personal calls, not supposed to bring my cell phone in the building and use for personal calls, not...
