Uuuuuuuuuuugggghhhh

Yeah, that's been me for the last week. I knew doom would befall me last Friday when G started getting sick, stayed out of daycare, and coughed on me numerous times over the weekend. Then, blammo. Sunday night it was all over. And a great week to have this happen to with the launch of our next niche site dvmOurTime.com.

I worked through it but trying to code a whole site and coordinate with peeps isn't the best thing when you feel like a Mac truck has run you down, backed over you, stopped for a lunch break, changed the tires & oil, and slowly driven away.

Of course, this was a blessing in disguise cuz I can always get WAY more done working from home than being at the office. Way too many needy peeps. I compare 4100 Wisconsin to adult daycare.

It was rather entertaining last night when I went to CVS to get Day and Night "Dr. Quill." I've never seen so many people at one CVS. It's like half the town of Laurel was sick. But I digress.

We also got about an inch snow fall yesterday, so I'm thinking winter may pass us by without anything major this year. However, tomorrow we may get an ice storm. Those are no fun no matter where you live.

Maybe the "Evil Crud" will leave me soon and life will return to normal. Otherwise, my vote is to hibernate for the winter and I'll see you all in the Spring. ;)

My layoff is like a swamp.

See You Around, Mike

Three weeks ago, I attended the memorial service of a dear Brother in Christ. Sunday, June 10, would've been his 56th birthday.
I miss my friend. But what's sad is that I didn't miss Mike until he was gone.

At least in the middle of the odd month, but definitely by the last week of it, Mike would always reach out to me with a request. It was usually to load a certain worship music video or some game show music. Sometimes, he needed some specific slides created or sound effects. Mike put a lot of thought into preparing the lessons.

For certain lessons, Mike asked the kids to write something that was bothering them or something that was a sin. Then he had them take hammer and nail to that card and attach it to an old rugged cross. Mike often brought in props to physically connect the Bible stories to the kids. For example, when he dressed as an innkeeper and walked in a wheelbarrow full of fresh cow manure. He was adding the smell of a barn to the lesson just to help set th…
