I borrowed a mortgage payment from my dad and Western Unioned it off. Combined with the 8 already sent and the extension of 5 more payments, the house is officially out of forclosure! Now I just have to make the payments. Thus, I went to the post office and the county building looking for work. It is amazing how unqualified I am after 41 year in this world! Oh well... just got to keep on keeping on and not have no in my heart!

Had a nice x-mas with my family at my parents. The kids made out like bandits with dolls and firetrucks and whatnot. Took the kids to the snow a couple days and did some sledding. Froze our butts off. Had lunch in Julian too. Now I'm back to work coding and graffiking. What the heck... I've got bills to pay!

The sale of r-house.com has been requested by the buyer... hope it goes through so I can fix my busted-down camper van.

Added a chatroom to the Cancer Answers site and reworked the Flash Intro at Beachwalk Financial.

Did lots of stuff this weekend... Thanksgiving with my family and the in-laws, a trip out to Viejas Casino, Chuckie Cheese with the kids, and Buddy Blue at Pete's Place are a few highlights. Now, it's back to work!

The sale of my main domain, r-house.com is moving forward. Most of my network services have shifted over to dgoode.com and new emails are created. Someday, my six-year-old email deeg@r-house.com will quit working :( oh well... it's a wierd name anyway.

Got the blog to work on the new dgoode.com site. Duh... you are reading it now. Of course it works!

Put the kids to bed and spent the night coding. Geee... I've never done that before :)

Took my daughter to Chuck E. Cheese for her FIFTH birthday this weekend. Ain't it crazy how time flies!

Finally working on a redesign! Got a call to buy my domain name, so I've been on a major restructuring thing this week. One good thing is that it is forcing me to do a redesign of my ancient site.

Worked carrier contacts for the PGW intranet. Began the GoodeInsurance transfer to my virtual host server. That's always a thorny process... Had a Rubio's burrito.

Got "groceries" at 7-11 enroute to the kids school and made pb&j sandwiches in the front seat while they split a clif bar. Now that's single parent multi-tasking in the modern age!

Went to see Buddy Blue and his band again at Pete's Place. It's the best show in town and I can't believe it stays so low profile. The band rocked through two blazing sets before a well-oiled crowd. Saw Mondo and Kelly at the show. Their baby is three months old now and the talk turned to nursing. Thus, I took them our *electric* breast pump to use. One of life's little conveniences, often overlooked.

Realized that this thing is too public to *REALLY* rant in any therapeutic manner, so I made a new one and hid it on the network for my own viewing pleasure. There can be found such juicy stuff as marriage and kids and parents and addictions... all the stuff you would want to read anyway. So, if you wanna know, you will have to hack my site :)

Had a killer interview at z57.com and kinda tripped when they asked what job I wanted. Well, I said, I have freelance design clients whose work I support with extensive HTML and Javascript for the implementations. I do project management and sales. All they could do was schedule me for another interview. I'll keep you posted.

Listening to the Sex Pistols and reworking my resume BACK to a graphical format from text. All that code gak made me see things like a coder, I guess. Someone at MusicMatch said I'd get a "better response if IT were more professional." In that case, I should completely redesign this site, which has only been added to since 1997. Still, I got 3 responses out of 4 on a recent media blast. Maybe one of these days I'll get a real job :)

Had a good day today, all things considered. Got a ton done at work building the potomacwest.net intranet. Designed a set of nav icons worth being proud of, which sailed right through approval :) Gotta love it! Picked up FIVE more clients as well for design, implementation and hosting! yipee! Also sent out my resume and got a 3 out of 4 response rate and an interview invitation. Talked another client out of an additional $400 a month as a retainer! Talk about a banner day! There's checks in the mail from three others too!

Went to lunch at Rubio's and met with the principal at PotomacWest.net. Got a load of work to do... looks like i'll have a busy week! Feast or Famine is what it is in this business!

It's been pretty wierd lately. I'm trying my best to do it right, but it is way hard. All I want to do is complain about the wife, about the kids, about work and the lack of it. Nag, Whine, Moan... I guess that makes me a heel :(

Thought of a new way to imput the blog. Hope it works!
