Quick blog post

As for some quick news, I can no longer deny that I have mold in my house. I found evidence tonight. I hope it is contained only to one area. It's the ugly black kind, which is the bad kind, so I will need to get it removed ASAP. I was unrealistically hoping this wouldn't happen, but alas, it has.

Thursday night will be furniture moving night. I have a couple of friends coming over to help move my bedroom furniture to the basement. On Friday morning, the carpet cleaners are coming. I should be able to put the new furniture in the bedroom on Saturday. Having new furniture is going to be like sleeping in a hotel for a while... it will feel strange.

The luck continues...

John emailed this morning telling me that my desktop PC at home was not booting properly and giving blue screen of death.  I really don't need this right now.  I have to go pick it up and bring it into work and get it up & running again.  This wouldn't be so bad normally because I'd be able to use my laptop, but that is also down.  Why now?  I have so much work to do today and I have no idea how I will get it all done.  Back to it.

Laptop woes

I had made the decision last week that I would not take my work laptop with me while on my honeymoon and at the conference.  While it is handy to have, it's a big pain to have to take it out of the bag at each airport security checkpoint, not to mention the fact that it's quite heavy for me to have to carry around.  Usually I end up taking it so that I can keep in touch with John when I am travelling, and do an occasional bit of work here and there.  Given that I will be with John the whole time I am away, and can use either his desktop or laptop, I figured I would save myself the hassle and not worry about taking it with me this time.
I turned my laptop on at home last night, and lo and behold I had no display.  It hasn't been working quite right for a while now, and I knew it was a video issue, but it decided to finally kick the bucket last night.  I played around with it for a couple of hours, then decided I would leave it until today and work on it at work.  Today's work tells me that it is a hardware issue, so it's time for warranty repair.
I guess even if I wanted to, I won't be able to take my laptop with me.  A sign that I am not supposed to work on my honeymoon, perhaps.  I could certainly use the vacation, that's for sure.  At least it will be in for repair at a time when it is convenient for me.
