An awful lot going on in the Trentham household these days.
I spent last night putting together the coffee table that I picked up while in Houston on business last week. The Wife’s quite taken with it. I thought she was going to sleep on the sofa so that she could be near it.
The Boy’s finishing up his second week of swim lessons with the City of Austin. He’s really enjoyed it. We recommend it highly. He’ll definitely be going back, but next time we’ll register early enough to get a pool closer to our house. The closest one had the classes canceled because there weren’t enough people signed up. The La’s crawling all over the place and can now stand on her own for about a minute. She could be walking before the summer is over.
My PC still isn’t functioning properly, but I’ll probably post some new pics tonight. I’ll just have to store the pictures on the old drive for now until I can get it working. It’s pretty clear now that both drives are intact, but for reasons I can’t explain, the computer keeps wanting to boot from the storage drive instead of the original drive that it’s been booting from since I bought the PC 6 years ago. I don’t know what it was about that lock up that screwed up the BIOS, but I’m still uncertain how to fix it. There are a few things I’m planning to try as soon as I have the time.
I can’t remember if I already mentioned it, but my f**king ISP is still screwing up billing and have been for most of this year. I finally got them to clear up the original problems only to find that they had double-billed me again. How hard is it to charge someone the same fee once a month?
Lastly, I’ve been working on a site for my parents condo for the past few months, but haven’t had much time to devote to it. I’d say it’s about 75% of the way there. Hopefully, I can get some time to finish it up soon.
We went looking at minivans on Saturday. All of my single friends can feel free to start the insulting comments. We’re probably going to get something in August. Our first stop was Honda to test drive an Odyssey. I must say that I was quite impressed. The sales guy was actually pretty cool. Very low key. We’re probably going to consider the Kia Sedona, Dodge Grand Caravan and Mazda MPV, but I don’t see any of them being able to beat the Odyssey. It’s got the most horsepower and holds it’s value the best. Now we just have to figure out how we can afford one without putting ourselves in massive debt…
I still don’t have access to both drives on my home pc. Both seem intact, but I just can’t get the machine to boot with both connected. Things have been crazy at work for the last couple of weeks, but I might have some breathing room this week to finally get it sorted out.
We all headed to Deep Eddy pool yesterday for an afternoon of Baby Chaos. Two of the other kids from our birthing class were there along with a set of twins. The La managed to get stung by a bee on the palm of her left hand, but she survived without too much trauma. Once again, Sofia saved us by taking a ton of pictures.
My computer is still out. I could just go ahead and re-install the OS, but I’m trying to exhaust all my options for saving the existing install first, particularly my email archives.
