1st Grade

One week from this Monday, Sarah will start First Grade! I can hardly believe it. One day back in 2000, I blinked, and then realized that my little baby girl is now a 6 year old going to 1st grade! Abby isn’t far behind, and in 2 years (or about 0.68 blinks) will be starting school as well. I’m making a concerted effort to slow down and try not to let life pass me by so quickly. Life is short, time goes fast. You don’t hear too many elderly people saying how they wish they could have spent more time in the office, or out on the road. The #1 regret is that they didn’t spend more time with their families.

Call for Help

Today I received a phone call from a representative of the TV Show Call for Help (airing on G4). It was in response to a question I had posted on their website regarding server performance testing. I was hoping they would just send me some links in response to my question, but was surprised to get a call asking if I would like to be on the show. I was delighted to accept and look forward to it. I’ve never done this type of thing before, so it should be a lot of fun. I do notice that most of the time, the people asking these questions are rather skraggly, but hopefully I will turn the tide and have an enjoyable conversation with Leo and the other staff on the show. The session will be recorded on Jan 25th, but I’m not yet sure when the show will air. I’ll post more on this later next week. See
