I enjoyed giving and receiving many gifts this Christmas. Some of my favorites are my The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring (Platinum Series Extended Edition) DVD set and Rudolph ornaments. I received many other gifts that would take too long to list. All are appreciated and will be used. Thanks J. Amber and I have been taking it easy so far and just messing around the house with my time off. We have no big plans for anything yet.

Christmas Eve. Well it is a WHITE Christmas for us this year. It started to snow about 10:00 AM and continued well into the night. All in all it looks like we will wake up to about 8 inches of the white stuff tomorrow. Amber and I enjoyed our traditional dinner with my parents and then trekked out into the weather to make it to Christmas Eve church services. All was well tonight. I wish all a merry Christmas and a great evening.

Tonight was the celebration of Christmas with Amber’s extended family in Springfield, IL. It was a good time for all. We all exchanged presents. I received a $30 gift card to BestBuy. Amber received some cute Boyds Bears. We also received a wonderful bag of homemade goodies from Grandma Bolin.


Last night was Amber’s five-year high school reunion. It was a lot of fun. Amber’s friend Brandy and her boyfriend Joel came down to accompany us. We all enjoyed the evening.

Well another night another power outage. I awake to a clock blinking 7:30. I figure, “well with the battery in the clock and the power outage, it must be about that time or a little later.” Well I go about my morning routine and pick up my pager and notice … IT IS 9:00 AM!!!! I am now officially very late for work. So I called my boss and told him I was running late. Oh well. C’est la vie.

Just got my grades for this semester. An A and a B. I am happy. Six more hours down and that much closer to my graduation. I also received my graduation report today and need to just take two more classes. Exactly as I expected. That is great news. Now I am signed up for the last two classes I need. Happy graduation to me.


I awaken this morning, still without heat, to find the house in utter darkness. The power is out. Great! And I have not even requested it yet. The plan is to install a new electrical service in the house now before the new furnace is installed. Oh well, Amber tells me the power was back on shortly after I left the house this morning. Another day another adventure.

Yesterday we took our holiday photo. Now we hope that we can get the cards out this week. Look for yours soon. We also took some time to set up some trees and decorations. It is a real hamper to not have a heater and time to spend decorating. We did get some shopping done this weekend and hopefully we will be close to done now.

I moved the last service off my old novell server at work today. Now in the near future I will be able to take it down for good. One less thing to keep me awake at night. Yeah!

My math final sucked. I hope to do well in the class though. Our furnace went out this weekend. Brrrr... cold. Well it has to be replaced now. At least the landlord is picking up the tab. Thanks Amber's parents. Only really bad news is that the installer is booked till after Christmas. Well we will be toasty with the borrowed kerosene heater for now. Amber and I are staying on the main floor. We are getting a new Comfortmaker gas furnace. It will be really nice since our old furnace was oil burning and was not efficient and smelled bad.

Good news! My robotics group did well on our final project and do not have to take our final now! Yeah! I only have one final this semester in my Math class. That one is tonight at 4:30 pm. Wish me luck.

This is the last week of classes for this semester. I have a final next week and a big robotics project due next week. I will be very busy.


Opening weekend went well. We had many visitors. Amber now has posted her hours of operation. Please feel free to stop by anytime. Thanks to all who were able to come.
