Pretty much the same ol shit around these parts. Tomorrow Heidi and I will be going to Show Low to visit Greg and Bobbi. It’s been awhile, so we should have a very nice visit, and it’s always good to get away from this wretched town we live in. We get to see if that bitch realtor has put our land up for sale again (she thought it was a different plot). Imagine my surprise when I went to visit our land, and found a FOR SALE sign on it. I almost jumped through the phone and strangled the little twit when I called her. So when we left, her signs could be found in a large bush next to our land. Wench.
My Linux box is up and running now! Holy crap, let me tell you about the install from hell! It’s not that bad, it just takes forever and a day — and it doesn’t help when you screw up the first run. Anyway, I’m running Gentoo now. I know I’ve said it before, but I think this distro is final for me. At least for the near future. It is a truly outstanding distro. Not the same ol crap you’re used to with any other distro. This one is truly innovative, and really could do some market damage if it keeps growing. You can build your system from scratch (called Stage 1). In a nut shell, you compile your ENTIRE system from source code. Trust me, not as daunting as it sounds. But it does take forever! Their package management is nothing less than revolutionary, and their forums are actually helpful. Not outdated, empty, or filled with l337 freaks. I’ve not once seen the infamous ‘RTFM’ show up in there. Truly kind to noobs like me. If you like Linux, you owe it to yourself to check out Gentoo. I promise you wont be sorry.
Heidi’s coming off the meds that put her into menopause, although they are sticking around enough to hinder our “next try”. She’s on some pills now to help induce ovulation, but we’ll see how that goes. I feel so bad that she has to go through all this. I can’t wait to tell our kid, “Do you have ANY idea what your mother went through to have you?!” LOL! I think the next time we implant we are going to implant 4 or 5 embryos. Considering our batting average, it can only help.
Mom will be going for her scan soon to see if there is any cancer left after the removal of her thyroid and lymphnodes. I get to drive her home that day. Funny thing is, she cannot sit directly next to me in the car, because she will be leaking radiation!! She is quarantined for 3 days after the scan as well. Anyone have a lead suit I can borrow? :)
Lastly, I’ve quit smoking! Today is day 2! I quit about 5 days ago, but ended up smoking on Friday. It was a special occasion so get off my back. :) We went out with Cyn and Drew — just had to smoke, duh!
Take care out there!
