Missed Blog Posts

I haven't been blogging much lately, but I have had plenty of ideas and situations that have come my way that would have normally been blog worthy.  Since I have been too busy working to blog, I thought that I could still do a post of potential posts... titles and short descriptions...

1.  Doggy ER
While clipping my dog's nails, I must have clipped into a bad nail or something.  I am positive that I didn't clip it too short, but it started bleeding a little bit.  I couldn't get it to stop, so after three hours of bandaging, home remedies and styptic pencils, I rushed him off to the vet.  Actually, when I opened one of the bandages, couldn't find the nail, and had blood squirt over 6 inches away from the dog's foot... I knew it was time to take the dog to a professional.  That, and I almost passed out twice from the sight of the squirting blood.  I also almost passed out at the first home remedy.  I found on several sites that flour can be used to help stop the flow, but what I ended up with was a baggie full of blood soaked flour.  It was like some sort of sick blood batter.

2.  Grand Central + Gizmo + old Linksys Vonage Router = free phone
I might come back later and do a full post on this one, but here is the short version:  Grand Central is a free service that gives you a phone number that will ring all of your phones.  Gizmo Project is a free service similar to Skype, only it uses an SIP Phone number (which is similar to what vonage uses).  I used to use Vonage, so I had a wireless Linksys router with two phone ports.  Once I unlocked the router so that I could input the Gizmo settings for the phone ports, I plugged in my phone and *presto* free phone.

3.  feverish
I was running a fever last Monday and Tuesday.  I came home early on Monday missed the whole day Tuesday.  It was rather uneventful, but would normally have warranted a blog...

4. 33,480
I was working on a job a couple of Fridays ago, delivering to a second floor apartment.  I had already done an office move that morning, and was going to help this over the road driver on his job.  We had to shuttle the stuff (take the stuff off of the big truck, put it on a little truck, drive the little truck to the apartment because the big truck couldn't get into the parking lot), so it was like double the work.  Here is the kicker:  After all of the stuff was off of the big truck, and onto the little truck, the driver and his help left.  That's right, he left us.  I couldn't believe it.  So, at five o,clock on a Friday night, me and 1 guy began toting things up to the upstairs.  Needless to say, it took a long time.

The title of the post?  My phone has a built in pedometer (step counter), and that is the number of steps I took that day.


Well, there were a few other things that I wanted to write about as well, like books I have been reading and things I have been learning, but I am actually running out of blogging motivation already...

Matts are great!

Paul never fails to bring something interesting to the table.  Most of the time it is some deep intellectual, theological thoughts...  But sometimes it is just... interesting.

I don't even know what to say. I just wish I had more money and more time.

I'm Sorry

I am sorry that I haven't blogged lately (for those very few readers who frequent this blog).

I have been working quite a bit lately, and sitting down at the computer just hasn't been something that I have made time for.  In fact, I haven't even been checking my e-mail but once a week.

I have to be honest, it feels good to be away from this thing.  I have to spend so much time on it during the school year that these few months that I have to be away from it I really enjoy.
