The Early Morning Train

misty.jpgAs you can see, I got the new theme uploaded and installed earlier today. Well, it’s yesterday now, as I sit here looking at the clock and I realize that it’s after 2:30 in the morning.

Besides running behind schedule most of the evening, we had a very productive day. It all started when we went to the bank to deposit the expense check. Once we got done at the bank we ran over to the senior community to deliver some brochures and ads for Gidget’s new alterations business. We stopped in to see my mom for a few minutes (Hi Mom) and then we came back home so Gidget could place an order for some threads and other supplies she needs in order to start doing business.

Over the past couple years we have invested, albeit slowly, to get her alterations and sewing business going and it’s all coming to fruition now. We couldn’t have planned it any better. She has all the machines she needs, and most of the equipment. There are a few other things she would like to have, but they will have to wait til she starts making some money. It won’t be much longer before she’ll be ready to take customer orders and begin her daily routine of working in the sweat shop (aka the freezer known as our basement).

While she placed her order with the thread company, I checked in with all my online job sites and found five more jobs to apply for today. That was a surprise. I didn’t expect to find so many in such a short time.


I was contacted by two of the companies I applied with today to fill out a “follow up” questionaire. I take it that’s a good sign, right? It shouldn’t be long now until I am getting some call backs and hopefully some face to face interviews.

I had hoped to get the new theme up by noon, but we got busy with things and I had to tinker with it some more before I put it live. I still have a few tweaks I want to make, but it’s good for now, and it should do the job for a while.

I sat here earlier this evening and was reminded that Chuck and 24 were both on tonight. Then I realized that Heroes, House, and Medium were also on. I thought the DVR was going to blow up, but it did a good job. Two weeks ago we downgraded to the DISH Family plan. It sucks. There is nothing good on later in the evening, and who knew, but CNN is not family friendly, apparently. I’m getting mighty tired of listening to FoxNews in the wee hours of the morning.

Oh, I almost forgot. As we were driving back home from my mom’s house, we got stuck waiting for a train. Of course, I pulled out the Kodak Zi6 and took video. Then I came home and played with iMovie ’09. Enjoy.
