October 2007 Update

As it's been 11 days since my last post, I thought I'd better put together a few updates! The last week and a half has been busy, very busy. We had our anniversary and Thanksgiving last week which was really nice. After eating a big meal, and a few lunches and supper's each, I still packed away four ZipLock™ bags full of turkey meat for use later in a stew, soup, or whatever else we need it for.

Last Friday, I came into work at 10:30pm to help with our server move. I'm not all that experienced in terms of networking or server setup, but there's a lot of heavy lifting and moving to be done, and I got to learn more about how everything is hooked up. I left somewhere around 3:30am, so it was a long night (although some of the other guys were there until 8am getting the final setup done).

On Saturday we went out to my parent's house for supper and to visit with Shelley and the boys, and Auntie Erna. For more information on their adventures, click the Eijbersen's link under "Blogs".

This week has been no less busy. On Monday evening, we drove to Chilliwack after work to see the Palmetto State Quartet, and The Pfeiffers. This was a fantastic concert, with a lot of great singing, and some really great displays of talent. We tried to promote it to people we know who might be interested, but in the end, it was only us who were there. All I can say is, you missed out big time, although I understand that it was a bad day for a concert, and rather far for most people to travel. Palmetto State re-confirmed their spot in my top favorite Southern Gospel groups, and the Pfeiffers really impressed although their style was quite different.

We now have fifteen days before our move. Have we been working hard every available evening? No, actually. We got a really good head start in our first packing session and have just been waiting until it gets closer before we pack more of our day to day stuff. We have two weekends left which we will use to do most of what we have left. Dishes and such can start to be packed, and with a couple packing sessions we should be ready to go.

Sadly, our landlords have become a problem in the last few weeks. There's a lot more noise coming from above us, and a loud TV or radio until 10:30pm or later. Who ever heard of banging the wall on your landlord? One would reason that they'd be the best tenants in the house. But no, and we have banged, many times. The thing is, they must care because they turn it down right away. It's just that they're not smart enough to make the connection from one day to the next, which is the most frustrating thing of all. I want to have respect for someone who is my landlord, boss, or whatever, but when there is not even the smallest respect coming back... well, it's just not right.

We've also seen the weather change to much cooler and rainier, and many trees have changed colors and are losing leaves. The days are getting shorter, and we do not look forward to the time change when mornings will be cast into complete darkness. On the positive side, as things turn bad outside, we can turn to indoor activities, and some game nights will be in order!

And that's the story for the last while. I doubt it will be any less busy over the next three weeks or more with the move and all. Check back once a week or so though, see if I've managed to post anything. Until next time!
