Bad blogger alert! I’ve been busy the last few days. My parents are visiting once again and I’ve been using the time to teach myself HTML and CSS. I’d like to get into freelance web and blog design, but I really have a lot to learn. I got a great book to learn from and I’ve been soaking it all in and testing it out. All the rest of you Alpha Geeks out there wanting to get into web design, run, don’t walk to your nearest bookstore and pick up Head First HTML with CSS and XHTML. Or just do like I do and just go get it on Amazon.com. Let the UPS guy deal with the heat, humidity and traffic..
So while I’ve been otherwise engaged in these pursuits of higher learning, my cousin April reminded me that there are two or three of you out there that actually care what I have to write and get more than a little annoyed if I let too many days go by without a blog entry.
How’s that for a run-on sentence?
Speaking of me going on and on…
I got a job! No, really! I am now a product reviewer for “The Old Schoolhouse” magazine. They send me products, mostly of a homeschooling nature, and I try them out and write up a review. They’ll publish my reviews, at least in part, in the magazine, and in full on their website. How cool is that? It’s really the perfect job for me. I get free stuff in the mail, I can work at the computer, I never have to leave the house, and I get to tell people exactly what I think.
In other news, Philip is now the president of our parish council, Boo caught a catfish in the Potomac and Pumpkin Girl has a nasty looking mosquito bite that required us to take her to the doctor. I’ll share pictures of Boo and the catfish later. They are on my parents’ camera and they didn’t bring their cable with them. Pumpkin Girl’s bite formed a big blister, so I’ll spare you the pictures of that. (yes, I actually took pictures, in case it got better before her doctor appointment.)It’s not infected, so she only got a prescription for Zyrtec to help with the itching and blister.
Hopefully, this quick little entry will help keep my fans happy. You know, sometimes there really isn’t a lot to blog about. Then again, I could always start making stuff up.
