Day Two of Time Off

Started my morning early again. Got up and as soon as we had some light I took Nokes on a walk.

Then from 8:30-12:30 I worked on Rotheblog. Mostly ironing out smaller details, but the main detail was deciding on how to make the sidebar work. I couldn’t find a plugin that let me customize what showed up there, as well as allowed me to have drop down lists. So, as much as it pains me, I made it manually. That let me customize it all I want, and although it isn’t dynamic, all of my posts still are. I don’t mind maintaining one portion of my site for a little while. Eventually I will come across a plugin or something that will do what I need.

I had some lunch, and then spent some time making some changes to DSW. Then just after 2, I headed down to the comic store. I haven’t been there in about 4 months, man it has been awhile. The fact that we don’t lift down there anymore doesn’t help. Said hi to Rob, picked up my books, but didn’t stay long. I came home and read for awhile, and thought, you know, I might be over buying comic books. My main book, Batman, hasn’t been good in about a year now, and that is all I buy anymore. I could really just save that 20-40 bucks a year for something else.

At about 4:30 I met Dave at the gym to lift. I was a very bad husband, I was supposed to bring clothes for Sarah, but I forgot them. She got all the way there and I realized it, and felt terrible. She said she was going to go shopping since she was already there, so at least it wasn’t a total loss.

I got back and we had some dinner. Sarah ran out the door to go to a candle party at a friend from Church and was gone until about 9 pm.

I was supposed to have a guy come over and buy the Space Invaders Deluxe around 7:30. He didn’t end up arriving until about 8:30. While I was waiting I took out the Jr. Pac-man marquee and started to scan what I could. I think my Canon scanner is officially dead, so I installed the printer / scanner combo Christine gave me and used that where possible. Only problem, the control panel on it is raised, so as long as you only scan items around 8.5 x 11, you should be fine. That, doesn’t work for me at all.

By the time I got the Space Invaders out, it was late, and it had been a long day already. Sarah and I talked and chilled a little bit before heading to bed. We knew tomorrow morning would be an early one.
