Vacation Started

December 21

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.
