Busy, busy, busy

Those 3 words pretty much sum up what's going on for me.

Today and tomorrow we are having garage sale. This will help get rid of stuff we no longer want and make a bit of money in the process. Anything we don't sale, we'll take elsewhere after the sale.

Tonight is my boy's Karate class. This weekend, he tests for his Camo belt!!! We are so excited. Once getting his camo belt, he'll get to move to the advanced class where he'll finally get to start sparing. We're all excited about that.

Saturday evening, we take a final walk-through on the new house to make sure all the repairs were done.

Tuesday we close on our current house and have my boys first advance Karate class!

1 week from today, we close on the new house and start painting and cleaning and have Karate (he may have to miss this day, we'll see).

Friday May 1st, is more cleaning and painting and maybe some moving. The telephone/DSL and Dish Network gets turned on.

Saturday morning May 2nd, we move.

Saturday evening May 2nd, we'll have a birthday party for my grandmother.

Well, that's it for now. More later!

I'm exhausted. I've been pretty busy with work lately. Tonight we put in a lot of new functionality into one of the applications I work on. Getting ready for this release has been a little stressful considering all the problems I had in getting this working in our QA region.

There were a few hiccups, but luckily nothing major. The actual release, which normally takes about 30 minutes took right at 2 hours to make all the changes on all our servers.

Hopefully, I'll sleep much better tonight than I have been.

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone has a great Easter today. I know it's wet around here, but that shouldn't dampen the holiday as we celebrate the resurrection of Christ!

Satellite Move Scheduled

Making my last post, reminded me I needed to call to move my Dish Network. It's scheduled to move on the same Friday as the phone.

I can't wait!

Phone Move

I called yesterday and scheduled to move the phone to the new house on the Friday after we move. I found out we will end up with a new number (or pay a $6/mo for basically a permanent transfer... not happening)

I also confirmed that I'll be able to keep my same level of DSL service that I had here in town. That makes me very happy!

19 days till we close!

Getting closer

3 weeks from today, we close on the new house! We are so excited. We've been doing what I consider a good job packing. We've packed a lot, designated a lot for a garage sale, and thrown away a lot. I'm not sure were all this stuff has come from, but it's nice to get rid of a lot of it.

The Internet goes to poop today

It's April Fools Day, so today, the internet goes to poop. You might can believe 1% of everything you read today, but even that's not a safe bet.

Have fun, and don't get fooled!
