I Nodded Yes, Said How ‘Bout You

I spent the bulk of today doing the physical work for the software programming I did yesterday. For the most part it went well, but there were some things that people didn’t seem to plan into the install, so I’ll be going back tomorrow to finish it up. I hope that it doesn’t take all day, cause I haven’t done any office work since Monday and I’m really starting to get worried about how far behind I am. I even thought about getting some done tonight, but I was just too darn tired.

We had a great lesson at institute tonight. I had read Section 19 a few times before going so I was a bit more into it than I normally am with just barely reading it before class. Of course I can’t remember the pattern, so Sister Dowden you’ll have to help me out there. Listen > See > Know. We talked a lot about having the spirit withdrawn from you, the three deaths and so forth.

I was so tired after work that I barely made it upstairs to check on things before deciding to just vedge on the couch before institute. I enjoyed some Without a Trace, and then watched CSI after Institute. CSI seems to have gone so downhill lately though, I’m not sure if I will be making it a priority to watch it. I should also probably mention that I haven’t seen the last two episodes of 24, so I guess I’m not that interested in TV in general lately.

I did get a good night’s sleep last night, or at least better than I have been lately. I don’t know if it is the sleep deprivation or that my mind wasn’t racing as much. Again, I’m not pleased with where things went yesterday, but I am at peace with myself that they were done. Half of the battle is done and now I just need to handle the second attack. Too bad that one hasn’t been panning out so well for me. Maybe there will be no second battle and this whole thing will come to pass.

Real Work

I turned the TV on for the first time this week and watched CSI tonight. It has actually been kind of nice to not have it on, not that I even watch it that much to begin with. I can’t believe that Grissom is leaving. CSI will never be the same.

I didn’t get to any real work till late this afternoon. I had the chamber breakfast this morning and then Bucky Claus came by to show off some new toys and we went to lunch.

After a day and a half with the iPhone, I can clearly say that I’m getting adjusted to the phone, but the service is horrible. It is even worse than I remember it. Sprint is giving me the runaround, so I haven’t ported my number yet. What a pain!

I’m up way late and need to get to bed, so I think I’m going to leave it at that.

Quiet Day of Chores

Quiet Day of Chores

Maybe before people decide to advertise on electronic screens they should inquire as to what is powering them. I mean, why pay to advertise how horrible windows is? We already know it crashes constantly – is it really necessary to advertise that at the gas station? Insist that your advertising displays run on a Mac. Maybe people will see what you are paying for.

I spent some time this morning catching up on blog reading and still trying to figure out twitter. I think I’m starting to get the idea behind it, although I still can’t understand what it does for me more than the status in facebook does. I guess it is just another one of those independent services we all have to deal with. I wish everyone could just have their own domain with whatever works best for them running on it sending out RSS feeds. That would I think essentially solve the need for all these different sites we have now. I realize it will never happen, but I think that is one of the reasons why I am so slow to adopt some of these new technologies/sites that others jump on right away.

I spent a good chunk of the day cleaning the house. I also spent time working on this console situation for the show this weekend among other things. I watched some TV, made some phone calls for home teaching and made orange chicken for dinner. It was essentially a pretty quiet day at home. I thought Lauren was going to come up, but she never did. Alison and I were going to try and meet for lunch, but that didn’t happen. I thought about going to dinner with Bouse, but he wanted to go to Outback and I’ve officially given up on that place. It’s hard to believe it, but I’ve actually stuck by it when I said I wasn’t going back. I can’t stand that they can’t figure out how to cook the meat right.

In fact, I would have spent the entire day at home if Maegan and Larilyn didn’t drag me out of the house to have dessert with them at Johnny Carino’s. I decided to try something new – the cannoli i think it was. It was actually pretty good, although Maegan will attest that the cake something or other she got was amazing and much better than anything I could possibly have chosen to get. This is why we had to have two desserts – so she could have the cake and I could try something new. They invited me to the movies as well. I just came home to finish off my boring day at home, home alone. I ended up watching an episode of CSI, which surprisingly, I hadn’t seen before!

And now, I can get to sleep at a reasonable time instead of still being locked in a movie theater for another 40 minutes and not getting home until tomorrow. I’m very anxious to find out what is going on tomorrow with President Mattson being released. From the calls I made today regarding home teaching, I can see that we have a lot of work cut out for us with people leaving. There were also a few who didn’t know they had assignments, which I think means that I must have never gotten the new assignments to them. I guess that is where calling comes in!

Hot Date with a Domain Controller

Well let’s see. I was at the office till almost three this morning because I got some crazy idea to wipe our domain in order to fix a few problems were were having. Most of it worked well. Exchange is now happy and quickbooks is working except we have some annoyances due to the programs lack of support for accounts without administrative rights. I spent today continuing to clean up the mess Batch and I left last night and making sure I was on top of the other actual office work.

I missed the activity at church last night which I hear wasn’t very well attended. I need to get better at going again and if nothing else showing my support. I did make it to institute tonight which was great as always.

Maybe I can get a good night sleep and actually enjoy an evening to myself for the first time in a while tomorrow. I enjoyed watching CSI this evening. Since I’m so far behind I wouldn’t even know the difference between a rerun and a new episode! I did recognize the episode of Without a Trace, though this was probably a good thing since it allowed me to turn off the TV and maybe get to bed a bit earlier than I would have if I was glued to the tube.

So I see the CA DMV has a cool new printer that fits inside an envelope! I got my car registration today, dated as issued 1/31/08 – today! I was thinking that was some great delivery time for snail mail if they could manage to get it out sameday, but then i saw that the envelope was postmarked on the 29th. Does that mean they figured out how to fit a printer into a tiny envelope to issue the registration on the date of receipt or do they have some crazy method to estimate the delivery date and use that as the issue date? Does any of this make any sense? Why not just print the date it was printed on it and put it in the mail?
