Too much time, too little to do!

Lately, there aren't enough hours in the day. And I'm not sure why. There isn't much that has to get done. Good thing, because I've been accomplishing just that: not much.

I've all but stopped writing anything at all, and I'm so far behind in the podcasts that interest me, that it's not funny. Not funny at all.

We've moved the computer back into the office, where it belongs. Perhaps this will inspire me to work more, and play less. Still having trouble pulling Sharon away from the TV. Oh well; that would just mean sharing the computer more anyway.

Spent a lot of money @ the apple store lately. Picked up a couple of refurb iSights for just about the price of one brandy-new one. Sent one to my mum, for mother's day, so we can all stay in touch. Been thinking of buying a 12" iBook for Sharon. She insists that it would be enough for her, and she's probably right. It just feels weird purchasing a computer weeks before I'm sure they'll announce its replacement. Also finally broke down and purchased iLife '06. So far, I'm not disappointed. Of course, we signed up for dot mac. Five pack, so that the entire clan can get in on the action. Even trying to get my buddy Dave in on it.

Speaking of Dave, Sharon sold him her iPod this past week. I'd been trying to offload my old 30 gig photo since the videos came out. Well, turns out that 4 gigs wasn't enough for her, so she upgraded to the photo, and was able to get $150 out of Dave for the nano. I guess that will pay for some of our new goodies.

Among the other item's, we've also added a paper shredder, scanner, whiteboard and pegboard to our collection of office supplies. Its starting to feel like a real work space, and not just a second bedroom.

Tomorrow, we're going to try to get the house cleaned. We're both off, and I swear, we're not leaving the house till its not a wreck.

I haven't heard anything back about that transfer, but I can't stand constantly being chilled to the bone much longer. I'm sick of the crappy weather, and being stuck in doors.

They're already trying to get me to go back on the road, and I still haven't received the reimbursement for my January trip yet. Ok, ok, its only been 2 weeks since I submitted the paper work, but it wasn't supposed to take this long! I can only hope that the deposit will be made sometime this week.

I wouldn't mind going back to Tainan, not at all, but I'm not sure that now is the best time. Last trip was pretty rough on Sharon & I, and she's let me know that she doesn't want me leaving any time soon.
