Been a while....

8 posts in this topic

It’s been a while since I’ve been online (if anyone even noticed…) … and much has happened in 2+ weeks….

Tuesday, 09/12 and evening of Wednesday, 09/13:

I left work early on Tuesday because of a 100+ degree fever. Then, the next evening, while attempting to catch up on reading my forums after recovering a little bit from being sick, my computer crashed; not sure if it garnered a virus or spyware or was attacked by someone. I’m still looking to either get that computer fixed or buy yet another new one. Currently, I’m using my parents’ computer to catch up and post a bit …. This computer situation is VERY frustrating for me … my computer is LESS than 2 years old … the “down time” has delayed my replies as well as other things (a new trivia game, perhaps; doing some things for the MC section at ChevyTalk.org, etc.). And, of course, I miss ya’ll….

Saturday, 09/16:

CHD outing in Sandwich IL.

Tuesday, 09/19:

I turned 33.

Thursday, 09/21:

My employment at the annuity call center ended! It was tough saying goodbye to coworkers, but I HAD to get out of that job.

Friday, 09/22:

A few friends (en route to Elkhart Lake WI for the weekend races) from CarNuts.us stopped to see me and my MCs.

Tuesday, 09/26:

For the first time in over 3 weeks, I was able to get my older 4 MCs out in gorgeous sunny weather (70 degree temps) and drove each about 45 miles.

Friday, 09/29 and Saturday, 09/30:

I’ll be in the N Manchester IN area as previously planned for Manchester College’s Homecoming … and my 10-year college graduation anniversary. Let me know if you’re in the area and want to meet.

Monday, 10/02:

I start my new employment with Weber-Stephen (Weber grills).

OCTOBER 10-17 ROAD TRIP through AR-TX-OK-KS-MO-IA-WI-IL:

This MAY be postponed (and extended a day or 2). I’ll attempt to post more info later.

Also upcoming … may be able to do my radio show again….

I’m still looking for a winter beater.

I know I’ve a lot of “catching up” to do, but it’ll be a while before I’m back online to stay (have to take care of the computer issue). In the meantime, anyone interested in…

Yeah, I noticed you had kind of disappeared. Good to hear you're alright, though. I've been through those computer issues too and it sucks. Hope you get it fixed soon. I know I'm bugging my parents to finally replace this 8 year old hunk of junk of Gateway of our's. I mean, we could get a new computer thats better in every way for just $299! :P

*nods*That's what I did, too. I saved up and a friend built it for me ... which is why I'm so frustrated that it crashed in under 2 years....Ah, well ... life goes on ;).
