It’s been a busy few days, with quite a bit of work, and quite a bit of play going on. I had to cram a little to get the monthly All New Comics update done, then this weekend we got some last minute comp tickets to Go Diego Live, watched some fighting, and finished up the weekend with a little Info-Tech work, a get together, and a little more Info-Tech work.
It all started Friday night when I was told that we’d be launching a whole new sales process on Tuesday. I had my team booked up already, so I knew we couldn’t even get started until Monday. Friday night we got a call asking if we wanted a couple of tickets to go see Diego. I said “Sure thing!”, and plans were made for Kaylin and I to see the 11am show on Saturday.
Saturday morning I did a bit of work, and got ready to take Kaylin downtown. We got to the John Labatt Centre, and Kaylin was given her little Baby Jaguar mask. She had a lot of fun, but she was really quiet. I wasn’t sure that she was enjoying it until the intermission when she started telling me about what she had seen.
After the show, I asked her if she wanted to go to McDonalds or the Market for lunch, and she surprised me with “The Market”! We had some good home-made pizza at the little Italian place, and then went over to Heroes, the comic shop that I worked at when I was a younger man, and checked out their new digs.
Saturday night I had the guys over for UFC and a little Rock Band.
Sunday we put together the patio table, and got the backyard ready for a little neighborhood gathering, which was a lot of fun. Good neighbors make a house a home.
Monday I built a seven page website from about 9pm to 3am which was kind of fun, and found out just how screwed we were in terms of work for the week.
Tuesday night I started doing a bit of work, but I had left some stuff at work, so I had to turn on GTA and continue with the game.
Wednesday night it was time for the monthly All New Comics billing, and I got some other stuff done while waiting for the site to respond.
You know we’re settling into parenthood when Go Diego Live! gets two paragraphs, and UFC and Rockband gets one line.
