Moving On Up
There are lots of things getting done lately, and I’m enjoying the closure I’m getting on them so much that I think my creative juices are flowing again - enough that working on new little side projects may be an option.
Friday night I got the last of my Odyssey CD storage cases from Sleeve City and finished the consolidation of CDs from the several racks and bookshelves they previously took up into three of these metal beauties. You wouldn’t imagine how much space I’m saving just on CDs.
Saturday Stu moved to the west side (not far from my house, actually) I spent the day helping him load and unload the U-Haul. Aside from being pretty exhausting (and causing me to be sore and achey even today), it was good to get all that done and I think it will be conducive to much gaming in the coming times. I’m itchin’ to get my Soul Calibur on.
Saturday night after moving, we watched Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which I anticipated being the lamest thing ever but was actually quite entertaining. Good humor and good action, just generally lots of fun. Deep and meaningful? No, but that’s not what we were looking for, either. Just a lot of fun.
Sunday was going to be a sort of “take it easy” day and was looking like it would stay that way despite some minor chores in the morning, but Jenn wanted to get the Christmas tree out of the attic, so that created… a little tension. But I got it put up and, a reasonable amount of grumbling and profanity aside, it all came together okay.
Woke up this morning at 4:30a and couldn’t go back to sleep, so at 5:00a I got up to read. Reading this book Sisters of the Raven by Barbara Hambly. It’s pretty decent, though it’s not one of those “can’t put it down” reads. I’m liking it, though, so I got up and spent an hour reading with the cat before the alarm went off.
Anyway, like I said - the juices are starting to flow again, which hasn’t happened for quite some time (the project we were on about this time last year and into the beginning of this year was, shall we say, trying) and I’m thinking about little projects and stuff to work on. I’m working on a minor bug in CR_Documentor, and I think maybe there’s some stuff I’d like to add to Junction Shell Extensions. I also want to get Solvent working in VS 2005. Oh, and I want better blog software (that’s been in the works for a while now) so it might be time to buckle down and get going on that. Plus the game bug has bitten me and I’d like to get back into the gaming thing. So much to do, so little time.
