Crap. I missed three days in a row. I didn't mean to, but life got in the way.
Thursday and Friday were my company's sales meeting/trade show and I knew I would miss Thursday for sure. I just didnt' know that we would have a surprise on Friday morning that would make me miss that day and Saturday as well.
I woke up at 5:30 a.m. to find a leak in the ceiling by our washer and dryer. Rather then ignore it, I woke Jim up and showed him. Since Jim was home all day, I was hoping we could get someone in to look at it. A co-worker gave me a number to call, and the guy never called us back, so Jim called several numbers in the phone book and never got a live body.
Needless to say, my dad and mom came up Saturday and saved the day. They drove all the way from Oregon and Dad and Jim climbed on the roof and figured out what the problem was. A bit of repair and caulking later, and our roof is no longer leaking and the attic is dry. I just have to thank my parents prefusely for that. It was a huge favor that saved us big money and a great deal of worry.
Jim and I cleaned out part of our basement and garage Friday night and Saturday so we were quite busy. My parents gave us some valuable tips and we were able to free up quite a bit of space in both.
At any rate, I haven't even thought about comic books or the internet all weekend. Weird. I have no idea what is going on in the blogosphere and feel a bit lost here, but I definitely wanted to check in. Life carried on without technology, and it felt kind of good, though I am starting to experience some withdrawals. Hee hee.
Tomorrow night I will be back to answer comments and be back on schedule. Thank you for bearing with me. I know that all of you are very busy as well, and hope that life is treating you right.
