Here we are again

Another week has passed. On Thursday and Friday, I went to Salt Lake for our annual WIT conference (that's all the computer people at DWS). After the conference, we had our annual softball game, which is usually won by the programmers, however, this year, WE BEAT THE PROGRAMMER'S. I had a pretty good performance too. I had a double and two singles, with 2 rbi's. I also got to play my good position, 1st base and did pretty well there too, although I did accidently trip one guy (hey it was a small base)

Over the weekend, I went around to every computer in my St. George DWS building and got them all up to date with windowsupdate patches. Today, I am hoping to do all the outreach computers and health machines. By the end of the week, I want to have everything up to date.

Taylor and Shaylie have developed a new habit (that we will have to break) They wake up in the middle of the night, wake us up to tell us that they are scared, and then go and sleep on the couch. We will have to cure them of this one in a hurry.

New Dishwasher

The new dishwaser is in, and it is HUGE! We can put a 2 quart pitcher in the top shelf and there is still 4 inches of space above it. Our old one couldn't hold a large cup in the top. I don't know if we own enough dishes to have a full load in this dishwasher!

Because we did not have a printer or a scanner, we bought a new multifunction printer, scanner, copier. President Bush was right in saying that sending out checks would stimulate the economy because we sure went out and bought stuff. Before everyone gets on me about buying computer stuff, the printer is actually Tonya's request.

Shaylie actually said she liked me today and she let me hug her without screaming, things are looking up!

A new week

Start of another new week. I am running the virus scan again this morning, although today in silent mode. I just want to make sure that everything is cleaned up. We bought a new dishwasher over the weekend, it will be installed either today or tomorrow. Our old one finally gave out, thankfully, a check came from the IRS, so it all worked out in the end.

Taylor's bike was on the last stages of life, I moved it off the lawn and the front wheel felt like it was going to fall off any second, so fearing for my daughter's life, we also got her a new bike.

I am traveling up to Salt Lake Thursday for a Friday morning meeting. This meeting also ends with our third annual softball game, the previous 2 won by the programmers, I hope the rest of the lan staff practiced a little this year.

One last thing, I updated the susportacademy page and asked him if my daughter can attend, he said she she could, so now Taylor has seven weeks of baseball ahead, we are both excited.

Virus, Virus

Well, I have had a fun couple of days! Yesterday a virus (worm, but I don't like that term) basically spread throughout our state network and brought down a lot of computers. I would say about thirty percent of mine went down, but I heard of other agencies and other states being much worse. I spent the afternoon cleaning up St. George and then drove to Cedar and cleaned that up. I got home about 11:00. Hope that is the end of it. will know soon enough....

First Day of School, and other things

Taylor's first day of school is today! She was really excited last night, but she was a little scared this morning. She and I talked for a little while, and Tonya said that it must have worked because she wasn't scared at all at school. She likes her new teacher, and hopefully things will go well. There is another Taylor in the class, so she is back to being Taylor J.

We had Shaylie's birthday party yesterday, so that some people could come to it. She had a ladybug birthday cake, and ladybug birthday cupcakes. She got some good presents, including a new ladybug bike. Hopefully soon she will be able to ride it.

Taylor in Mesquite

Taylor is down in Mesquite gambling. Not really, she is down there with grandma Dawn and Anissa and Anje and they all are spending lots of time at the swimming pool. Taylor and Shaylie are going to go for a visit to Holden and Cedar this weekend while we celebrate our 11th anniversary. We are probably going to the Shakespearean(sp?) festival and see a play. In all the time that we went to that school and all the plays that we have seen, we have never been in the Adam's Theatre so we are making a point to see one there.

I am putting in the hours this week, I am moving email accounts around as we are consoladating our email post offices. Hopefully, I will be finished with this tonight.
