More stuff gets done today

President’s Day came and went without much of a notice except Teresa having the day off.  I still think President’s Day was optional.  Schools around here were in session.  So much for a Federal Holiday.


I didn’t do as much in my web development class yesterday as I wanted to.  My Airbuds would not connect with the Mac.  No matter what I did, nope, wouldn’t connect.  So, I had to wait for Teresa to wake up and then I got a little bit of  time in.  Time spent was also limited by the fact that I felt like crap.  Teresa and I both got a stomach bug.  After many trips to the restroom, sitting at a computer learning Mongoose/MongoDB was not high on my list of things to do.  Hopefully, I will get some time on it today.  Teresa is going to her office today, but not tomorrow cuz it will be more snow (will get to in a moment).


29 days till Spring.  The weather sucks.  Tonight into tomorrow we are supposed to get ANOTHER 5 to 8 inches of snow.  39 inches of snow since January 1st.  We have and are breaking all sorts of records for measurable snow fall.  The weather predictors still say partly cloudy for Friday, so I am still our of here.


ArctiCon is 4 days away.  The drive there is in 3 days… Friday.  My back has really been bothering me lately, so this drive is gonna HURT.  Can’t take a pain pill while driving, so all the built up pain will be there when I arrive at Jim and Mom’s place.  But I will make said drive, ArctiCon and more importantly, my family awaits.


I’ve decided to hire a professional to design my logo.  If I did it myself, it would look cheesy, so I am going to Jon Liebl of Liebl Marketing Group for help.  He did all my work for Away From It All and Iowa Realty, so why not for my new business too.  Well, Jon won’t be doing the design, his designer will.  It’s all good as long as it get done.  I don’t want to spend more money (definitely not manicy at all), but in this case I think it will be money well spent.  I have a lunch with him on Thursday.


I woke up this morning at 5:20am, wide awake.  So I got 6 hours of sleep.  Not enough for me, so a nap will be in order soon.  I’ve been napping a lot lately.  (Big difference from when I couldn’t nap).  Not sleeping well at night again.  I got a lot of stress going on.  Causes me to have trouble sleeping.  Always happens when I start to get stressed, and usually gets worse the more stressed I become.  It will reach the point where I go to see Chris (my PA-C) to try to get Restoril. Restoril helps me sleep through the night even when stressed.  Ambien only gives me 6 hours (as demonstrated by last night).


Today I will go get a bank account.  Today I will go get a mailbox.  Today I will get some more stuff on my to do list DONE.

The company is 5 days old.  I’ve actually gotten or will have gotten today a lot done for it.  Still not ready to make money, but hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day.  And I needed all this done before I started on the main project so I had motivation.

Talking to my lawyer can wait.   Getting setup with Square can wait.  There is quite a few things on my To Do List that can wait.  That is good, cuz I really need to take as much time as I can and put it into the web development class.  But the bank and the mailbox are priorities today.

Announcement Saturday for WordPress and Facebook and for the people of ArctiCon.  It’ll be good to be able to talk about my business freely and get general feedback.  Yup, looking forward to sharing this with my friends.  Sorry it has taken so long guys, just had to get things ready first, you understand, right?
