My little boy turns 30 today.  I have friends younger than that.  I have friends just having babies for the first time.  There are some days I just feel kind of old.  Today qualifies.  Of course, part of that could be having exercised two days in a row after a week long hiatus from the gym and my body yelling at me for it.  I hurt in a lot of places.  Part of it could be that I'm getting old.  Don't worry, I'm not going to let a little thing like that stop me from doing all the things I shouldn't.  :-)

Today is also one month from the day I put Sasha down.  That's been a tough thing to deal with and it's only 8:20.  I've been a lot better at dealing with it.  Thanks to everyone out there who's given me advice and support.  As I told another friend recently, death is for the dead and the living have to go on living.  I've been doing that; even went out and got two kittens this weekend.  They'll get a separate entry because I don't want to muddy the waters here.  Ok, I was wrong, I can't deal with talking about Sasha anymore.  I'm already feeling dehydrated.  :'-(

While I was driving in this morning I passed the most pitiful thing I've ever seen.  There was a faun laying dead on the side of the road.  It was clearly a young, small deer, still had the spots on it.  What I can only assume to be the mother deer was standing over it licking its face.  Death, life... yeah, forget what I said earlier.  I was crying about Sasha at the time and this totally broke me.  Circle of life?  One less deer to be eating the flowers in my yard?  Those might be the Wisdom outlook, but man, I am so a creature of Compassion.  In the immortal words of the tin man, "Now I know I've got a heart, 'cause it's breaking."

Enough of that.  I have a brighter topic to indulge in, one that needs your help.  I'm going to put it up in a separate post.  Stay tuned.

Just catching up since I haven't done so in a couple of weeks.
Long details behind cut )

Well, that's about it for now.  For all you long time LJers who've fallen off the bandwagon and many of you therefore off my radar, if you're still reading, feel free to post something and let me know you're still alive.

What happened to Monday?  I know I was here working.  Damn, Monday flew fast.

Weekend was good.  I spent a good solid  10 hours working on the workflow database for United Health Care.  Monique and I worked together on a lot of that on Saturday mapping out import files to database fields.  It would be nice if her team would get me *all* the workflow input files and be consistent in their structures and follow the rules I set for these things (single sheet per workflow, single row headers, etc).  But it's been fun and interesting working out new ways to handle their inadequacies.

Patriots!!!!  Woo-hoo!  18-0!  'Nuff said.

Monique is at some sort of seminar just south of Hartford all week, so the company got her a hotel room at the conference center.  It's about 15 minutes from my work.  I'm going to stay there all week becuse it beats going home at 35 - 40 minutes one way, it will be a nice change of pace and because I get to spend nights with Monique instead of home alone.

Monique's birthday was yesterday.  I remembered about 11:30 to call in a flower order.  I had already bought her a lovely earring and necklace set.  Chris and Amy were going to make her lobster for dinner, but we went out to dinner at Red Lobster instead because we had two reasons to celebrate.

Chris got a job yesterday.  He'll be working for RR Donnelly, a printing firm in Danbury CT.  Now that he's employed, he also got to fulfill the his agreement with Amy.  They agreed to wait until he had a job to tell all the family that she's pregnant.   So he made a lot of family calls last night.  It was kind of funny to see how excited he was about it.  Chris *HATES* talking on the phone.

Enough blather for one morning.  I've got a long 14 hours of work ahead of me, so I should get to it. ,
