Working on my “after-work” list, and it got a little shorter when it turned out that the server fixed itself, so to speak.
You may or may not have noticed that my site & shat was down this morning, but I did a little troubleshooting at lunch, and finally concluded I would probably have to plug a monitor in and futz with something at the end of the day. I got back to my desk and found, quite happily, that it seems to have cleared itself up. So one less thing.
I was up north for the weekend, getting things set for the deer hunt coming up in a few weeks. This was kind of funny– as I was driving up, I thought about how wet you can get sitting in a tree if it snows or rains, and what the possibilities were for preventing such a circumstance. Last year, I took an umbrella out for part of one day and sort of propped it up in my jacket. Turns out Dad had thought of this, too, because he bought me, Joe, and himself an “ultimate umbrella” that straps to the tree and hangs over your stand just right. So there’s two less things.
We did get all the treestands set up, and I think we’re gearing up for a good hunt. We all have at least one extra day off from work, and a lot of the prep is already completed. I still need to do a little shopping, but nothing too difficult. I’m looking forward to it.
I drove Grandma home to Milwaukee, too (one less trip for Mom to make). It was a nice, pretty easy ride. We stopped by my apartment in Oshkosh on the way, since Grandma hadn’t seen it yet. After that, we ate at Culver’s.
We listened to the Packers game on the way. It was a good win, even though it was against a team even (GASP) worse than Green Bay. They’ve got Buffalo next week (another pathetic group), and I know there are people hopeful that the team can get back to even. I still think it’s a real stretch to expect them to win 3 games in a row. I’d say they’ve got a 50-50 shot of beating the Bills, then I guarantee 3 consecutive losses to Minnesota, New England, and Seattle.
I played with Michelle’s iPod a little bit on Sunday evening, but when I sat down at the computer in frustration, intent on figuring out what was keeping Ubuntu from recognizing it, Michelle reminded me that she would rather spend some time with me than watch me fix the iPod. It was a good point. And I guess that’s one other thing less.
One final thing: seems like Family Ties star Tina Yothers is now attending UW Oshkoshâ€¦
