I had plans for this weekend. I had so much to do like blog, homework, fix a site for a design job, clean the house (which I finally was able to do). Only problem was that ast week I got Sims 3 Supernatural. All week I didn’t get a chance to play it. So, on Friday, I finished cleaning the house and I sat down at my desk for a break. I had done my homework and I messaged Angie and said that “I’ve done a lot today and I’m taking a break. I’m going to play the Sims.” That little break turned into a marathon lasting 3 days. I did nothing else last weekend. However, I don’t regret it. I have the week to finish up what I need to do and another break this weekend (No KIDS!! Damn, you’d swear they were mine.)
Anyway, I have to work on Andrew’s job site. (I also have to work on our business site. Oops :\) There is nothing in place yet but once I finish up the homepage, they are going to present it to the higher-ups and hopefully bring me on to redo their site. They paid $25,000 for a website built entirely in dreamweaver which, if not careful, leaves you with broken links. Andrew, who is more advanced in web development than the average IT guy should be, has been fixing these mistakes to keep the business with a functional website. They are, however, getting yelled at because the company who built the site is supposed to be making the changes. The marketing department has decided to do away with their contract with them and have the site converted to WordPress, which is what I shall be doing. I’ve already converted the layout to a WordPress theme on my own server and that is what they will be presenting to them. It will help a lot in the future as I plan to make my focus on WordPress design and development.
So much to do and so little time now that the children are back in school. On top of school we have homework (theirs and mine), dinner, cheer/football practice, and showers to fit into a short 4 hours. Things are getting stressful. I’m trying not to crack under the pressure.
Andrew also ordered me a card for my DSi so now I can play Pokemon without having to borrow Breya’s DS (which used to be mine) and I am trying to figure out how to get Pokemon Yellow (for Game Boy Color) on my DSi, which apparently isn’t as hard I thought. I would love to play Pokemon Yellow, again. It was my favorite Pokemon game, to date, as Pikachu can follow you. Not to mention, he is also your starter.
So, along with all of that I am also trying to find time to read the Harry Potter books. Andrew and I just finished watching the movies and I have NEVER been in love with a series as I have become to love Harry Potter. I watched the movies but I am still left with questions that I hope to have answered by reading the books. Years ago, I started to read them but didn’t make it through the first 2 chapters. Angie says I should have pushed on because it gets interesting after that. It sure as hell does! I can’t wait to read them.
If you’ve read this far, you can have a cookie. This short post turned into a book about my life over the last week. Thanks.
