Finally on vacation. Not too busy at work. After the Christmas luncheon, no one really works all that much. The food was a bit disappointing. Last year a local restaurant catered the food, which was much better. This year was pretty common catering fare. Fried chicken that was about 2 days old by the taste of it and really fatty Italian beef. We did interview a person after lunch to wire up a crapload of new testers I designed for work. Nothing too difficult, just something like 1,500 solder joints to solder before they are all done. Poor bastard.
I had been using SeaMonkey for my internet needs, but I really miss some of the features in Firefox. My favorite is ScribeFire, which allows easy blogging. So, I am back to Firefox/Thunderbird. The latest versions seem to be less memory leaky.
Tomorrow, we are heading off to the mother in law’s place for a few hours and early x-mas gifts. I am looking forward to my new watch, a Seiko diver’s watch. It will be my first real diver’s watch. Seiko has been making diver’s watches for over 40 years now. It will have a bright orange face and solid stainless steel bracelet. I picked it out, she paid for it.
Glenn has been ok. He is really trying to find Mommy’s limits. He does throw some temper tantrums and he really is developing a personality. I wonder how he will turn out? Though, I find that I miss Tiff and Glenn more during the day than I used to. I am glad I am taking a vacation to be with my family a little more.by
