Been a month

So, it's been a month since I started this magic carpet ride that is going back to work. Exciting stuff.

Violet has been staying with my parents two days a week and Cindy's mom has been coming over to watch her the other three days. I am supposed to get a flexible schedule, allowing me to work from home two days a week, but as of yet I have been unable to get that going.

I have met a ton of people in Stayton, and a lot of people have a low opinion of the paper. That happens when they move the office out of town and then fill the paper with news from Silverton. So the work has been very rewarding -- people are giving my compliments and I have yet to have a correction in the paper. (I just doomed myself now, watch.)

Life is crazy and Cindy started traveling for her job -- this week she is in Japan. We had a friend come over and watch Violet this week to make it easier, but if the travel keeps up I'm not sure how this will work.

We have a minivan and a mis-sized car, so in my infinite wisdom I decided that I should buy a smaller car that would get better gas mileage, since Stayton is 50 miles from my house. I bought a little 1998 Saturn SC2. It's pretty fun to drive -- when it runs. We have had four Saturns and they have all been great cars for us. This little used one is breaking the trend.

So far I have had it about a month and I have driven maybe one week. A work week, not a total week. Otherwise it's been in the shop. Which totally sucks.

That's life, such as it is. Again, to see my work just go to www.statytonmail.com and you can see what I am up to.

I will try to be better about updating this blog.

See ya!

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa.
