watched “office space” (also field is a sprinkler)

February 28, 2001

Went to see Frosty last night and hang out with the old MarketWatchers and tell stories. We watched Office Space — which I love and ate veggie burgers and veggie dogs — which I adore! Great night out.When I got home Ang woke up to tell me Field had diarrhea. Not good. This morning he got all chipper after a bottle — goofy laughing, rolling around, etc… Things looked pretty good and then *WHAM!* Vomit everywhere and the wailing begins. Poor little guy. Hopefully he’ll be better by tomorrow.

Passed my fourth and final test to become an MCSD (Microsoft Certified Solution Developer). The tests were pretty tough and I spent the past month and a half studying nearly every free minute. I’m glad they’re done, but I learned a lot in the process.Special thanks to John Durant who got the ball rolling and has been the primary catalyst towards my positive attitude adjustment. Additional thanks to my office-mate, Joe Beeck, whose motor runs a bit faster than most — and who pushed me to complete this by getting himself certified last week.

None of this would have been possible without the loving understanding of my beautiful wife, Angela, who hasn’t kicked my ass (yet) for spending so much time studying. I hesitate to think what she would have done, had I failed. 😉

things are getting better

Mom is getting some movement back in her legs. She can move the left leg a bit from the knee down and the right foot got some movement back on Friday. We are hopeful and so is the staff at Bethesda that this trend will continue. She is working really hard.
