Weekend Rush

On Friday, we hit the Silver Diner for dinner. Jenny was feeling bad, so we got her some chicken soup.

Saturday went easily enough. I got a few more loads out of the old shed. Jenny and I had a talk about time. With Miss Dash off to school, the balance of time power has changed.

With Hers Truly having a playmate, that also changes the time dynamic. I was less needed, but if I was being the adult in the house, needing to pop out and help with occasional things. I'm slowly learning the new dynamic and what I can put there. I spent some time continuing to sort through my things and getting rid of stuff. I sloughed off a big stack of stereo cables. I also rearranged the office a bit. I put the rack next to the computer and the book case nearer to the window as I could not get access to rewire the stereo. I also altered the stereo wiring a bit. I'm now running coax to the stereo.

I installed Windows 7 onto an SSD. Fast bugger. I backed the whole thing up, including the registration. As that is my game machine, and everybody includes their own un-removable DRM, I want to be able to reimage easily. I installed Mass Effect 3 to check that everything worked, and it was all gold.

We went to our local pot luck for church, and we had a great time. Miss Dash played with one of her perennial friends, but Jen stayed home sick.

I finally got around to waxing the tv trays, wrapping up that project. I can now clear that space.

I found my old art supplies. I have reseized my pencils, and I even found my old Christmas ornament painting suupplies, including some unpainted plaster ornaments. Coolness.
