Back from vacation and back at it

Posted on

Before leaving my previous employer we had a family vacation planned to celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday, so the job hunt went on hold at least partially for five days.  It’s always nice to see family and when it includes 70 degree + weather including one day that topped 80 leaving the winter behind in Minnesota wasn’t too tough. I must admit Palm Desert California is an amazing place to visit in the dead of winter. I Spent day one back in Saint Paul with Colson which was a treat.  Heck he even slept in and took a full two hour nap which allowed me to get some work done.  I made an awful meatloaf that Kris swears was good, at least the mashed potatoes were decent.  Now I am back at my local Caribou again looking online for that perfect job!  I figured I would take a quick break to update this blog which so far only spammers are visiting.  So as a result I installed Akismet and we will see how that works to stop the SPAM.  On the WordPress front I did update WordPress for Multisite the other day. I have a few other blog site ideas one a domain I have been sitting on for years and another I purchased late last week and supposedly Multisite will allow me to build them all under one WordPress install.

Cheers for now!


New Found Free Time?

Posted on

So much for that new found free time!  Day one of the job search went well, I reached out to some contacts and I’ve finally updated my resume.  They always say you should keep your resume up to date but what fun would that be. There’s no challenge in that now is there.  Today was day two of the job search and also my first day having Colson home with me. We’ve scaled back his daycare just a little while I find my next exciting challenge.  So he will be home with me a couple of days a week until then.  It’s awesome spending the extra time with him but I was banking on his nap time to apply for a couple of jobs I found last night and to update Twitter and possibly even work on this site.  I spent some time with WordPress a year or so ago and figured this would be a good time to give it another go.  I started out out with a template I found and eventually would like to build by own in due time.  I might have to brush on my CSS a little as that’s not something I have been using every day as a Project Manager.  Well cheers for now it seems my nephew has a cross country ski race at Como and I should cherish these days while I have them.
