Whew, a fun couple of days… On Monday I get home from work to be greeted by Maddy who says “Mom got hurt” and I then ask where Mom is… Seems Mom is on the couch with her foot elevated and covered with ice. There was an incident involving playing ‘freeze tag’ with the kids, falling over, and crawling to the house. So after examining it, and cosulting with a friend we decide a trip to the ER might be a good idea. So we load up the van, and head to the friend’s house, who offered to watch the kids while the female and I went to the ER. We get about 95% of the way to the friend’s house when BLAM! We blow a tire on the van. So after changing the tire we’re back on track… Luckily it was just a nasty sprain, no breakage, but she’s on crutches for a week. Dang…

So I stay home Tuesday to care for the female, and get new tires for the van. See, I can’t get to work anyway since we’re riding on the spare and the transmission in my car went bye-bye a week ago. So anyway, I take the kids with me to get new tires. A process that ended up taking roughly 4 hours. Which is roughly 3.5 hours longer than it should take… Anyway, we got new tires and the van rides fine now. Oh, and I find out my car is finally fixed. Of course we can’t go get it because the female can’t currently drive, crutches and all that… Note: I may need some corporate sponsorship to manage the repair payments of both vehicles in one week.

Can I complain about all of this? Not really, a bad day at home, consisting of 4+ hours to get new tires, is still better than a good day at work. If that tells you anything…

The name seems to be Blog, and it seems to have neat stuff…

Sorry, but so far I have no commentary (witty or otherwise) on the MacWorld Expo announcements… look elsewhere for that kind of thing, it shouldn’t be hard to find…
