Made it thru CSS and my idea grows

Well, I finally made it thru the CSS part of the web development program.  Not sure I know what I am doing, but I got 100% on the quiz.  CSS pseudoclasses are gonna be a challenge for me, as all of CSS is gonna be a challenge.   But I think I can fake it now.  Fake it till you make it, right?  No, seriously, I know enough to make a non-responsive website that is pretty.  Even had a  little sidebar of the class on color theory and font theory which helped quite a bit I think.  Next I believe we are going into JavaScript.  Yes, that is gonna take my non-responsive site and make it responsive.  I am thinking of Teresa is right, this will be language #4 and even harder to learn.  I am not a programmer in any sense of the imagination, but things can change.  Oh wait, the next thing we learn about is bootstrap, whatever that is.  Oh, it appears to be a front end (HTML + CSS) toolkit.  Cool, maybe it’ll make CSS easier.  Heh.  Anyhow, I am about 20% thru the course, feel I have learned quite a bit, and am almost ready to continue.  Wanted to blog first 🙂


It’s not as cold today as it was yesterday, so it snowed.  Not a lot of snow, but Teresa’s car is covered and I’d say we got close to an inch.  That is how its going right now, its either brutally cold or snowing.  Bah, I hate Iowa winters.


I had to cancel on Jason’s game last night which was alright cuz he cancelled the whole thing.  So, I am looking forward to next week.  I hope it goes.


Early weather predictions on weather.com now say snow in the evening on the 6th.  I think they don’t have any clue, so they put anything on there to fill space.  Seriously, channel 8 won’t predict past 5 days without a boat load of disclaimers.  Weather.com just puts whatever up, no this is apt to be wrong posted anywhere.  Oh well, I am not worried about the weather unless its gonna be a blizzard, then we just reschedule everything.


Sleeping really good, the other day was an anomaly.  With the exceptions of Anxiety problems falling asleep right now.  I don’t have sleep issues normally.  And I cant remember a time before of waking in the middle of the night, its been so long.   Oh well, maybe it was Anxiety related too.


As we get closer to the bone marrow biopsy Results, (the biopsy itself is a nothing concern) my anxiety levels are increasing causing me sleep issues and making me crabby.  I have been snapping at Teresa lately, I feel real bad about that.   I have apologized and then turned around and snapped again.  Not fair to her, she is dealing with her own stress and being sweet.   But not I, anxiety causes me to be a big crabby grump.


I still have the cough from Hell.  It comes and goes now though. 1 day no coughs, next day cough cough cough cough.  It sounds horrible though.  Wet and pasty.  Still not coughing anything up.  I got a cough after first round of chemo that lasted 2 years.  I hope this cough is just a cough from the second round of chemo.  But I don’t think I will be that lucky,   I am thinking about going to Chris (the PA) tomorrow.


I talked with a couple other people about my idea, everyone I have talked to about it has been receptive and supportive.  Got to be careful with my idea, don’t want to talk to someone about it who is gonna steal it.   It’s a good idea.  The idea has already had some major changes to it, but it’s still the idea that came from my inkling.  I sure hope my biopsy results are good so I can reasonably go forward with this idea and make it a reality.  Would suck to have such a good idea squashed.
