How to best explain the awesomeness that is today?
It's been like 10 or 12 weeks since I had a weekend at home with no plans, obligations, traveling, etc.
-- slept in
-- went to the monthly Boston Terrier Meetup up the block from us. dozens of Bostons. pure craziness.
-- opened and dealt with about 25 envelopes. bills, statements, etc. generally cleaned my office up.
-- helped Dina clean her office
-- upgraded Dina's laptop to Dapper from Hoary or whatever was before
-- moved Dina's printer downstairs, and verified it worked from Ubuntu
-- cleaned the garage with Dina (mostly Dina)
-- installed a new garage opener button next to the garage door. I didn't have bell wire or patience for soldering, so I have two wires twisted together and duct-taped to the ceiling, wrapping around pipes and stuff, then into a breadboard that's duct-taped to the wall. Out of that is a push button. High-tech. I need to hookup my garage-door-opener-from-computer again that I had mostly going at the old house (except the wiring kept falling out of the garage motor before and I knew we were moving, so never cared to do it right). Then I can open the garage from my phone when I'm biking home.
-- got a new tripod because I lost the mounting thing for my old tripod. called them, they were closing in 5 minutes, and raced down and made it before they closed.
