It has been a long stressful week filled with implementations, site launches, bring your kid to work day and sugar withdrawals (the kids not me).
Now that our new support site has launched a huge weight is gone. Don’t get me wrong there is still plenty to do style sheet changes, database tweaking, workflow rules and lets not forget the trying to do all this while working in an interface in a foreign language that doesn’t have its roots in any of the other languages I know, but the urgency is over. Fun for everyone! Let’s have a party!
So how did I celebrate? I had a diet pepsi, leaned back and let out a sigh. Sorry that this is short but I am going to enjoy the next few hours before sleep!
This is really just a follow-up blog to yesterday’s rant.
My PHP trip to hell has ended and the cloud does have a silver lining. Now I just have to get the damned style sheets to cooperate since they keep smashing my mastheads to the left. I feel like a weight is lifted despite the growing mountain of projects that need doing. I truly despise when I can’t get the result I want in the time I want due to limitations whether they be my own or someone else’s. I have no tolerance for it and am my own warden when it comes to time management, projects that are unfinished are like old gym socks that get shoved in the back of your locker and forgotten about – one day you start cleaning up and discover a stinking pile in the back that needs tending to. So long story short DON”T DO IT!
So my middle one has been diagnosed by the pediatrician with STREP. One more thing these enlarged adenoids are using to torture my child. So antibiotics it is despite the fact that I hate that they are overused the culture was undeniably positive.
Comics and other GEEKINESS
I read a few different comics unfortunately I don’t get to the daily as I would like. I also read comic books but I currently have a stack of back issues collecting dust on the shelf that I keep eyeballing. Since I used to run SETI@home all the time and have been a member since the 90’s I thought I would include for your reading pleasure today yesterday’s DILBERT.
Doctor Who is coming in a few more days! Too bad CABLEVISION still doesn’t carry BBC America guess I will resort to other measures (INSERT SINISTER DR. EVIL LAUGH HERE). I urge you all to write or call cablevision if you are in NY 1-800-OK-CABLE and tell them we need BBC America and that not everyone can be sustained on shows like American IDOL, Dancing with the Stars and whatever other garbage there is out there most nights. Also post on this FACEBOOK page.
My three sons and I will be watching despite you CABLEVISION oh how I wish I could get FIOS!
That’s all for now!
What the Hell is an Adenoid Anyway?
I have three sons. Yes go ahead I have heard it before bring on the comments….My THREE Sons…they are 8, 5, and 18 months. The middle one suffers from chronic ear infections and colds due to these pesky enlarged Adenoids. Read what an Adenoid is at Kid’s Health. Years ago Doctors would have jumped and cut them out right away but in truth they are part of the immune system and help filter out all the bacteria that kids are exposed to. I am told that by the time they enter the early teen years they have usually shrunk to non-existence but what is one full time working mom to do in the meantime? The doctors just want to give him antibiotics and have me shoot steroids up his nose but I am looking for a really solution not a band aid. And hopefully something less traumatic then surgery. I have started reading about Adenoids and allergies as well as the possibility of trying to identify potential food sensitivities and eliminating them. If anyone out there has had success with this please send me a comment.
Well that is all for now folks lunch time is over.
