Three positive things, day twenty

Tags: 

So this should have gone out last night, because that was Monday night. Ah well.

The first positive thing was (finally) planning to visit The Big E this year. For those who haven't heard of it, it's a huge

The second positive thing was my wife's best friend visiting for a while.

The third positive thing was that I'm teaching my wife and her friend web development, and we finally got to the point of having Drupal installed. Having gotten to this step, we can start getting into some of the fun stuff next time.

Three positive things, day nineteen

Tags: 

The last day of the week, or the start of a new one - either which way, it was Sunday.

The first positive thing was getting out and playing at a local park with the kids in-between the morning's storms. The rain put a slight damper on our plans for the day, but it was over in about twenty minutes so we went back to another park a short time later.

The second positive thing was discovering that Gamestop had tied my purchase of the Diablo 3 expansion pack to my account in their system, so when I showed up at a store to ask what to do with a receipt that had its oh-so-important serial number erased due to store clerk error, the were able to say "did you check your digital locker" which was exactly where it was. Now #awesomewife can charge ahead and see what happens after she defeats Diablo.. again ;)

The third positive thing was planning to take a short vacation in a few weeks - should be lots of fun, and it'll be great to finally take one during the summer. I can't wait! :-)

Three positive things, day eighteen

So, Saturday happened.

The first positive thing was watching the movie It Follows. It was surprisingly creepy and very well done for such a low budget movie. Definitely recommended, if you're into scary movies.

The second positive thing was discovering there's a huge Lego installation at a "children's" museum in Manchester - the rest of the gang went exploring and found it, so we'll have to go back again soon so I can see it too.

The third positive thing was having a good time at a local park, and bumping into a local family we've started to get to know a bit.

Three positive things, day seventeen

So, that was Friday.

The first positive thing was that I finished my work for the week in enough time to help with dinner, and I completed enough hours on an important project so that troop leader won't be worried about my quota ;-)

The second positive thing was a small thing, but I released a new version of a plugin for Drupal that's in use by at least a quarter of a million websites and has been downloaded over a million times. No pressure ;-) The new version fixes some bugs and will make it easier to avoid other bugs in future.

The last positive thing was uncovering a bunch of knots in Jen's back. While this isn't necessarily a good thing, we discovered them before she took the kids on a long drive to a new museum tomorrow, so hopefully we'll be able to loosen them up enough before she heads off to avoid problems while they're exploring.

Three positive things, day sixteen

Today was a bit humdrum and certainly didn't live up to yesterday's excitement.

One positive thing was pulling my hair out wondering why something wasn't working correctly on a project that I was working, only to talk to a coworker and realized that no, the changes I thought were missing just hadn't been added in yet. In lay person's terms, think of it like I had looked at a bunch of decorated cakes but forgot that the cake *I* was doing hadn't been decorated yet. Duh. So yay, I wasn't going crazy ;-)

Another positive thing was discovering that there's a play called "Outside Mullingar". FYI Mullingar was a nearby town when I was growing up and we visited it weekly, if not more often.

The third positive thing was discovering that the play is being performed in a town nearby this weekend. It has actually been running for the past week but we've only just found out about it.
