Yeah, I know. I need to spend more time keeping up with this. I hope nothing exciting has happened that I missed out on.
Isabella finally had her 2nd birthday this weekend, a mere two months late. Because he birthday is just before Christmas, we decided to move her party back a month so people wouldn't have to miss Christmas parties to be there; after all, it's not like she's going to know the difference. So that was going to have been two weekends ago, but something came up
at the last minute and we had to reschedule. And then about midweek, we discovered that Isabella was possibly contagious, so we sent out emails warning people that they might want to keep small kids away.
Unsurprisingly, there wasn't a huge turn out, but everyone had fun, and Isabella got yet more toys.
She's doing really well, generally. She's talking more and more, putting together two- and three-word phrases. Her favourite right now seems to be "mean daddy", but that's hardly unexpected, is it?
I now have an iPod! A 30GB 5.5th gen, if you're interested. cowgirlheather
broke hers, so she (finally) sent it to me to play with. At the moment, it won't power up, or acknowledge that it's been connected to a computer, but once I've got the tools to open it up, I hope to get it back in working order before too long. Maybe I will install linux
on it? I understand the hard drive was starting to fail even before it died completely, but that's easy enough to replace, I think. I'll try and let you know what happens with it.
Amy and I collaborated on a new dice bag
for me, made out of one of my old t-shirts. It came out pretty awesome, which I credit entirely to Amy's mad skillz. I'll get to show it off for reals this weekend.
Work has mostly been training for the new ERP system that we're going to be switching over to, soon. The development environment has its quirks, but I think it's the first visual environment that I've actually liked. It manages not to feel like it's just getting between me and code in an attempt to make things difficult. Quite an achievement, really.
