It’s Valentine’s Day. Teresa and I chose to stop doing anything for Valentine’s Day before we even got married. So, no flower, no chocolates, no jewelry, I don’t have to do anything. Weird, eh? Beyond it being Valentine’s Day, it’s also the 27th anniversary of our first date. 27 years ago, I took her to Estrella War and fell even more in love with her. That was the one and only time I bought her a Valentine’s gift, a pewter dragon necklace that she liked. Maybe this year, I will get her something and throw the world off kilter. No biggie to run down to the Family Dollar and get her a card or something. I’ll think about it.
I had cancer of one form or the other for over 3 years. It honestly feels a little weird (in a good way) to be cancer free. It’s ok, I would rather feel weird and be cancer free than still have the cancer in me.
I took really deep breaths yesterday while doing the Pentamidine breathing treatment, what took almost 45 minutes last time, I was done I under 20. Yeah, buddy. She walked in to check on me and went “I think it’s done”, I was happily surprised. I do not like Pentamidine, it tastes awful.
34 days till Spring.
I worked on my web development class yesterday afternoon. Minus time for a nap and break times. I finished the last section before the big challenge. And then I did 7 out of 21 of the big challenge and I knew 2 of them. Not promising. EJS just floors me. Worse than Bootstrap did. The funny thing is, there isn’t a lot to EJS, I should “get it” but it escapes my grasp at this time. There is so little to it, that there isn’t even a book on Amazon for it. It’s ok though, I will do the 14 other steps of the big challenge and know maybe 4 of them. She (the instructor) will go over the answers with us. OH, we are making a very basic blog page. No, I am not EVER going to use it, but make it I shall. And after I finish looking like an idiot on the big challenge, we move on to SQL.
Oh ArctiCon, rumor has it we are having a snow storm on the 22nd. Davenport, Chicago, and the Region are having nice weather. We are have more snow. At this juncture I do not know if I will make it or not. Perhaps I will decide on the 22nd whether I am going to make the drive or not. Heh, they updated the prediction and it’s now not gonna snow here until the evening. If that is the case, I will most likely be there. Yeah, I am being a flake about driving there. I do not drive in snow for long distances. I don’t even like to drive in snow for short distances. It’s all good, we are 10 days out and I haven’t got a clue. I want to go and if it’s not actively snowing when I am ready to leave, then it’ll probably be a go.
I’m in a holding pattern for my project/business. I filed the paperwork to become an LLC two days ago and it still says “not submitted”. There is no help button, so I don’t know if I screwed up or it just takes longer when you fast file online. I knew I should have taken it down to the Secretary of States office and gotten it taken care of right away, but no, I didn’t want to go out in the cold any more than I already was. Teach me to use new technology when the old technology still works. People power, that’s what it’s about.
Beyond that and the class, everything else is on schedule. I have to go up to the UPS store and get a mailbox. But that can wait. Everything on my to do list at least says PENDING. I guess, this morning I will work on my class some (feel like an idiot for a while), then take a nap. More feeling like an idiot after said nap. And hopefully get thru the 14 remaining big challenges. I’ll save SQL for next week.
