Three positive things, day thirty two

Tags: 

Saturday! Woot!

The first positive thing was taking a little time this morning to dig my way through a bunch of bug reports (and fixes) for a Drupal plugin (aka "module") that I maintain that interacts with Twitter, which I happen to use on this site. I figure I'm about a week or two away from releasing the first new versions the module has had in several years.

The second positive thing was going out with the family for a bit of post-dinner play time at a local school playground. We had the place to ourselves, so it was quiet and pretty relaxing, and myself and our two eldest ran our legs off playing tag.

The third positive thing was joining our two eldest for a round of Just Dance 3. Tonight's tune was "Da Funk" from Daft Punk, a tune I was familiar with, but I'd never seen the game's dance moves before. Anyway, long story short, the game thought I did a better job that the other two - I still got it ;-)

So the first positive thing is that I made it past thirty posts in this series! Woot!

The second positive thing was Kian saying "I have a blue dragon [stuffed animal]", or as he put it "I have boo gnah-gnee" :-D

The third positive thing was an extension of something that happened yesterday. While our friend came over yesterday to learn Drupal, she brough her son along to play with our kids. Along with playing with Lego 'n things, they spent some time playing a Wii game he brought with him - Just Dance 3. Today our kids asked if we'd be willing to get them the game as they really had a lot of fun, and it'd be another form of exercise. So tonight we picked it up and.. they spent half an hour before bed dancing along with some songs they knew! It was fun to see them get into it, and we all joined in for a little bit. What was even more surprising was our 8yo asking if he could play it as soon as he got up in the morning - I guess it's a hit!

So, this is my thirtieth post. Woot.

The first positive thing today was finally finishing a tiny little Drupal module I wrote a while ago, mostly thanks to someone else out of the blue uploading some improvements for it. And that's how open source works :)

The second positive thing today was awesomewife setting up our small paddling pool for kids to play in. She then brought out Kian's small slide and set it up for him to slide into the pool - needless to say it was huge hit and he had a huge smile on his face when they came back in.

The third positive thing was getting back to doing the Drupal class with awesomewife and her friend and finally start to get somewhere with it. They're now finally getting into creating content, so next week we'll work on filling out their starter sites a little more. Baby steps.

Hello Wednesday!

The first positive thing today was remembering to mute my microphone before blowing my nose during the plethora of calls I had today. I'll get the hang of this thing eventually! ;-)

The second positive thing was my #awesomewife surprising me with (mostly) homemade curry for lunch! Yum!

The third positive thing was my #awesomewife finishing her prep work for next year's homeschooling - everything's ready to go! She can now relax and not worry about it for the next week & a half. Yay!

Three positive things, day twenty eight

Another busy Tuesday, made more interesting by the fact that I had some colorful sinus problems. And by "colorful" I meant "green-ish, brown-ish ugh".

The first positive thing was working with "live, via satellite" with people in two different countries via conference call / screensharing. It was quite an interesting time.

The second positive thing was .. ahem.. forgetting that I had not muted my line and .. blowing my nose..... sinus problems, remember? ;-) Anyway, both times were during lulls in the conversation, so everyone just laughed, wondered what the heck the crazy noise was, and blew it off. Also, puns.

The third positive thing was watching Ponyo with the family after dinner. Kian hadn't seen it before but he was absolutely fascinated by it, and sat & watched the whole thing - he kept cheering "there he is" when he'd see Ponyo or Sōsuke :) While I prefer "My Neighbor Totoro", Ponyo is definitely a wonderful movie.
