Saturday, September 13, 2008 was my 40th birthday (ack!), and I had a great time. Not only did we have a great party planned at the Tech Museum, but my Dad had surprised me by flying in from Missouri to help celebrate. Truly a wonderful day, and one which I’ll always remember.

I just wanted to log some random impressions of the day, while they were still fresh in my mind.

A new beginning… September 8, 2008

After far too long on hiatus, here’s a new entry to appease those staring in disappointment at what has become my (cob-)website.

I simply don’t spend enough time on what I’d like to do – like share my life with friends, document significant events in my life, etc. Work takes up too much time – even when I’m home, I’m doing work. This is simply not a good set of priorities for me to maintain.

But, I’d like to change that. We’ll see if I can type a few sentences much more often, and keep those friends more in-touch with what’s going on in my life.

A (minor) Christmas miracle December 7, 2007

I enjoy putting up our outdoor Christmas decorations every year. I usually do it in late November, or early December – so I have enough time to enjoy them before the holiday itself. And every year, I convince myself I’m going to allocate enough time so that I can actually verify all the lights work before stringing them up on the house.

Of course, I never do: When I eventually do start putting up lights, there’s only a few hours before dark, so I just rush headlong into stringing them up. Then, when lighting them, I get frustrated at how many “gaps” there are in the coverage – sub-sections of strings which remain dark, due to bad bulbs.

Transitions September 11, 2006

So… on this day of rememberance, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my life, and the lives of those around me. One aspect which I’ve greatly valued is the ability of keeping up-to-date with others via the web, especially via weblogs such as this.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything to my blog, however, and I have several excuses as to “why”. In all honesty, though, it boils down to: “The desire to maintain this website hasn’t been enough of a priority of mine”. Perhaps not a good reason, per se, but there it is.

However, I’m currently going through several transitions, which have made me re-evaluate many areas of my home life, as well as my work life. The upside is that I’ve made a commitment to myself (as well as several of my friends) to do a much better job in posting about my life going forward.

Watch this space for more … very soon.
