Such a busy season Summer time is.

500.00 + that could have been spent in better ways, -_-; 105.00 $ spent on a Side Panel and a new water pump for the swamp cooler and mounted myself, status: Running and house cooled, so at least people can now sleep at night in this heat. The kitchen underside sink wise had a leak anytime we used the front hose, seems even though the piping was graded, the pipe insulated and the hose OFF the faucet before the winter freeze. Somehow water was left in expanded and left a small crack in the copper piping all because there was no anti freezing siphon on the tap. An Anti-freezing siphon, I never even heard of them till the plumber told me about them. This made me angry because why didn’t the disaster recovery team see that 4. Yrs. ago when we had to rebuild that underside of the kitchen?

The girls are getting ready for camping and it’s going to be an odd week with all this going. I have a letter that was sent cod that I don’t have any clue on what it would be about. That will have to be updated once I get home tonight. The Girls are getting ready for Summer Camp and that will leave me and the wife to go in and re-arrange their room a bit to provide more space and to get rid of some of the stuff they’ve out grown and pack it away. Seems I’ll have the van being that I’m driving up to camp with them and then taking it back down the mountain and to work. Then on Saturday they come back in her GS assistant trooper leader’s truck that afternoon. Then unpack wash and pack then rest on Sunday and OFF for extended GS Scout camp on Monday. It’s definitely going to be busy summer.

The week’s end.

Let’s see what did I do this week? Got the lawn mower in the shop, helped get the family just that little bit more squared away. Moved the TV back to the family room and help setup the cables as they were before. Took the twins to their Girl Scout Earth day Event and planted a cute Quaker Aspen up in the Draper today as well. They both were awarded with the other Girl scouts and they earned a Green Earth patch for it as well.

Adam came by and dropped up the other 1.5 gigs of ram for my machine so NOW “Officially” I have 4 gigs total on my machine. The most ram I’ve had on a machine ever. I was also able to get rid of the old lawn mower as well, the one with the busted wheel. Someone knew how to fix it and wanted to do it so I let him. I am Installing Photoshop 7 on the main machine so that I can start using the tablet again. I placed Photoshop 3 on the Xp unit so our oldest can get familiar with it. She’s already got pretty smart with gimp, so best to take it up a notch and get her involved with Photoshop 3 proper like.

I’ve also asked my vehicles modeler just what the heck is going on and why there hasn’t been any progress from him as of late? Any responses I’ve sent have got little or no response out him and I am at the tail end of the fuse. I mean our player modeler is hard at work on getting the models done so they can be rigged and tested. The maps themselves, I’m not sure what’s going on with them to be honest. Our Mapper and well my 2nd in charge has been laxed as of late and I really need to find some way to motivate him more. Well anyways in other news this week which has been rather interesting to say the least.

I recently reconnected with an old and very cool friend of mine who was at my wedding, whose wife helped out with the preparations of my wife’s nails for the wedding. Now 15.5 Yrs later, things have changed, he’s a bit distant, closed off, not sure why? It’s not like I didn’t try to look for him after we got married, when we got back to Utah I had to get back to work and get things ready for creating a home environment, being a father and husband.

I still at times wonder am I doing things right? I think we all get that way sometimes, but you have to step back and look from the outside in and see if and where you’re messing up at and correct yourself or look at what happened and go why and what could have been better and make sure you correct yourself next time. On the net however there are just trolls and you have to figure out how to avoid them and to steer around them or divert them elsewhere than near you. Maybe I just want to say the world is still a very confusing place and also quite vicious as well. Good thing that I have a few people I can call friends to help step up to the plate to help me out.

It’s almost time to leave, so I’m just going to post this up and let you all ponder what I’ve said…..

Girl Scouts, Piano lessons and Aliens oh my,

Last of the girl scout mayhem may have end this weekend. I’ve taken the twins to thier cookie booth helped out a little bit with the selling and such. We seemed to have made a lot of sales because the dads were out helping show support for thier kids.

Then just as we were at the tail end of things, this huge snow storm hits out of the blue and 2 mins we had sheets of snow just flyign across the parking lot of the sams club. I helped the troop leaders get the cookies in the van and then took my own little troopers home for a fun filled evening of Zim and readng star wars to them at hier bedsides as they fell fast asleep.

As for me ? I passed out at about 11:10/11:15 Pm so I am posting this just before midnight.

The day goes on forever

Seriously, the day jas just dragged on and on. i can’t wait to get to work to deal with other people’s issues. I’m waiting to get that extra 1.5 gig of ram, but atm I’m just waiting to get some of these cookies bagged up and ran out to the clients. The things I do for my kids. -_-;
