Thanks for the update, Lizard . . . hope all goes well with your mom . . . :)

ATM it's just been pretty routine around here . . . lots to do at work and home.

We're driving up to Louisville tomorrow to see Sonata Arctica in concert - J.J. and friend Steve are fans, so I told them I'd take them. I've been digging their new album "Days of Grays", and I'm sure they'll play lots of that at the show.

Yeah - I thought of you, Lizard - knew you're a Sonata fan . . .

The show was excellent! I'm sure they'll be touring some more, so maybe they'll be in your neck of the woods soon . . . :)

Glad to hear your mother is better, and that you'll have help from the social worker dealing with her condition. Sounds like you're doing all you can . . .



ATM I'm at work trying to decide what I want for lunch . . . :cool:

ATM -

I'm reveling in being back at work - due to various reasons, mostly pertaining to my STILL pending (3 1/2 years now - SHEESH) divorce, I was laid off for 3 weeks. My manager and my lead sysadmin jumped through a lot of hoops for me and helped get the issues cleared up, so now I'm back at work and loving it. It SUCKS looking for a job and not knowing when the next paycheck is going to come in.

Looks like the divorce is going to FINALLY be over with by the end of November - and it's about time. I've really had enough. Gonna take a lot of the "love and light" of Yes music to help me get over the bitterness that has been beating on me, especially over the last year and a half. However, the last several years HAS served to reaffirm that I've made the right decision, so that's a positive slant to everything...

The move back to Virginia in October 2008 has turned out to be not without it's challenges - gov't funding for the last project I was on was pulled after 7 months and I had to take ANOTHER position, and then 4 months after that I was laid off because of the above - but it's been DEFINITELY worth it. I've been able to spend a LOT of time with my 2 younger boys (one just turned 18 this month and the youngest turned 7 this past June); my oldest boy (he's 22) moved back to the Tidewater area and in with me last March, got a job and actually supports himself - we're "roommates" more than anything else - and we spend a lot of time together; and over the past year or so, a romantic relationship has grown between myself and a lady that I'd known for a few years just as friends. So, life is moving forward, and in a REALLY good direction.

My oldest son (some of you "old timers" here may remember him by the name of "Freebird" on this site - he frequented here, oh, probably 8 or so years ago) and I are going to the Virginia Symphony on Saturday night - Vivaldi's "Four Seasons", a couple of other pieces that I don't remember right now, and closing with Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite". His suggestion and invitation - he called me on Tuesday and asked me if I'd like to join him for it. Oh, HELL yeah, I would. My girlfriend already had plans to spend that entire day and evening with her oldest (her daughter) for a "lady's day" at Busch Gardens, so I had no plans... now I do and I'm looking forward to it in a BIG way.

So, life is good, if not without it's challenges and speed bumps.

Thank you, Diane - yes, there is a lot of good, and I'm grateful for it.

Re: late nights at work - I pull a LOT of those. One good thing about my job - because it's 200 miles away from where I live (I live in Chesapeake, VA and my job is up near Washington DC), they let me work four 10 hour days vice five 8 hour days. So, I leave my house early Monday mornings (around 5 AM, usually) to drive the 200 miles to work; stay in a hotel Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday nights; leave work on Thursday and drive the 200 miles back to Chesapeake. My weekends are Friday, Sat, Sun. A lot of time on the road and a lot of miles on my car, but it's a really decent schedule. And, because of how expensive it is to live up here, this arrangement is actually less expensive than relocating up here. And, because there's really nothing waiting for me each night that I'm here except a hotel room, it doesn't bother me to turn those 10 hour days into 12 hour days occasionally (sometimes 14 hour days, although that's rare). And, I get 3 day weekends EVERY weekend to take care of what's important in life - spending time with my sons, spending time with my lady friend, and spending time with my friends. It seems to be a rather equitable situation for me in pretty much all respects.

Gonna need to pick up a new truck soon, though - I've now got 215,000 miles on my Ranger and it's starting to show the signs of it. I'm looking at Toyota Tacomas, Ford Rangers and Chevy S-10s. My 18 year old is waiting somewhat impatiently for it to happen, because I told him when I get a new truck I'll give him my current Ranger. Only thing is, he'll have to pay for his own insurance, his own gas and his own maintenance... I refuse to give the truck to him otherwise.

Yeah - my schedule here at work has been pretty haphazard too . . . my son has a lot of post-surgery medical appointments, and a friend who doesn't drive is in physical therapy, so I'm having to work weird hours around all those appointments. It's a struggle sometimes.

At work at the moment - will have to leave in a while to go pick up J.J. from school and take him home . . . he's got physical therapy tomorrow which I think his dad will take him to, but we're changing the schedule, I think, which means I'll probably have to take him more.

Thought I'd check in here again . . . WHERE IS EVERYONE????

Dean - hope the divorce came through . . .

Lizard - how's your mom?

ATM - I'm at work, and it's been a busy day so far - I have some personnel issues to deal with today . . . at least I'm enjoying some good music while I do those . . . :cool:

Hello, all

Been a few weeks since I've signed on to the site - I've had a LOT going on.

Diane, yes, the divorce HAS finally become legal and binding - as of Nov 18th, I'm officially and legally single. 4 years pending... finally free... what a load off my shoulders and mind! Now my lady and I can officially pursue our relationship, which is going VERY well.

Work is going well... went through an ITIL class (IT systems management from the initial design phase, through transition and deployment, operation and support, continued service improvement) and got my ITIL V3 Foundation certification. I'm looking forward to taking one or two of the offered intermediate classes as well sometime after the first of the year.

Kids are doing well... Derek (my 7 year old) helped me pick out my Christmas tree this year and set it up. Going to decorate it with he and my next oldest, Dustin, this weekend.

Christmas is coming... I'm glad it's here, I'll enjoy it now that I don't have to deal with the chaos and hustle / bustle of the season, and it'll be over with very shortly after the New Year. Then, it's on to another year, another season, a new era for me. YEE HAA. I'm looking forward to the rest of my life. Life is a GOOD thing.

I hope everyone is doing well.....

Glad things are looking up for you, Dean . . . :)

ATM I'm trying to get some information regarding a new request for programming that's come in - the guy I'm trying to assign it to seems to have no clue what a batch update is and it's frustrating - we don't have anyone else here with much DB2 experience . . . sigh . . .

I AM really glad you've stopped by - I've missed the antics of the peacocks, and your food updates . . . ;)

Please know that we're here for you if you need a diversion right now - it's tough losing parents - both of mine passed 4 months apart in 2001/2 - the fan sites provided a much-needed respite for me from grief and legal matters.

ATM - we just had a Christmas food orgy here at work - everyone brought stuff and we set up a buffet, which is still going on! Lots of turkey/ham/rolls, plus dressing and various casseroles, lots of cheese/cracker/dip/chip thingys, and a table with about 2 dozen different desserts!

I'm stuffed to the gills . . . lol
