Well, we didn’t get 5 to 8 inches of snow, maybe another 3 or 4. And the wind that was supposed to hit today seems to be kind of pathetic. So, the great blizzard like conditions that were supposed to hit between yesterday and today aren’t happening. Can’t say I am disappointed that we aren’t getting more nasty winter weather. Just hoping the wind stays mellow and the plows do their jobs.
I’m writing this while waiting for Dr. Alkhateeb to call with the chromosomal results. He said he would have them on Tuesday and today is Tuesday. He probably won’t call till this afternoon though, so waiting all morning and into the afternoon is gonna suck.
Didn’t do crap for my class again yesterday, I really need to get on it. I keep slacking and slacking and before I know it, it’ll be the 1st and I am supposed to start programming on my project. I will try to get on it tonight. It’s not that I don’t want to do it, not that its too hard (although it is hard), it is just that I have been busy with other things or distracted or Teresa has been working or playing World of Warcraft. Between all these things, the web development class has taken a back seat. Well, hopefully, no more. I NEED to get it done.
36 Days till Spring, but who is counting?
All my art supplies have arrived. I can officially start to learn to draw. I need to find my pencil sharpener though, I won’t get the ultra-fine points of a crafting knife and sandpaper like the book suggests, but I will get a good point with my electric pencil sharpener. I think the authors of the Drawing for Absolute Beginners might take drawing a bit more serious than I do. But hey, if they want to carve and sand their pencils, more power to them. I’m not looking to become and artist, I am just looking to learn to draw a bit.
We are 12 days from ArctiCon, 11 days from when I am supposed to drive to the Region. KCCI weather only does a 10 day advanced weather prediction. So, tomorrow I should have an idea if the weather is going to be nice for my drive or not. At least for my drive to there. It’ll be 4 days later to give me an idea of what my drive back is going to be like. Of course, I am not checking the rest of the drive yet. Just the parts around me. For all I know, there might be a lake effect snow storm hitting there while we have a sunny day. Guess I will have to look more carefully at all the weather between here and there.
I made big decision changes in my project/business. BIG changes. And now I have to sit on hold for a half hour with the IRS to fix my EIN number. Probably the most annoying thing I will do today and it happens to be among the first things I do today. But I will go thru it, and do it, so that all my proverbial ducks are in a row. Anyhow, by making those changes, my cost for getting it started went way down and my to do list lost 4 things on it. WOOT, progress 😛
I’m trying to get things ready by the 28th. I should have things ready by the 28th. I will be very disappointed if I don’t have everything ready by the 28th.
Web Development class not withstanding, I am actually very pleased with where I am in terms of getting things done. I am working on this project pretty much every day. And even when I am not physically doing something, I am thinking about what I have to do.
February 28th is announce day. March 30th is launch day. Both days are firmly entrenched in my mind. I have a few other important days in there too, but those are the two days I want to keep to, the rest of the days are more fluid.
