Holy cow, she posted again!Ö and a really, really big stick.
Posted by Jess in Day to Day

So, letís see. Yes, yes, itís been awhile. My blog, which is my echo of all my thoughts, and Iíve been gone for so long. I will try not to let that happen again.

Hereís a quick summary:

Iíve been doing quite a few Lotus Notes projects. Iíve also been doing lots and lots of home computer repair and training, which I love. Iím also in the works to give some seminars in the Parks & Recreation department about tips for home users to combat spam and learn about protecting against viruses. And lastly, I am trying to get an outline going for a possible free seminar for parents on how to keep the Internet safe for their children.

And, after lots of great feedback from the home users I help from day to day, Iíve also decided Iím going to try to write a book. Though I have never done this before, it should be interesting. I donít want to give too much away, but I can tell you my (working) title, which will at least give you an idea of my target audience: ďHow big is a gig?Ē

I am having a blast, and slowly but surely finding my niche, which I have been trying to do for years, and not successfully. Take this blog for example, I always have great ideas about Notes and lots of views/opinions on Internet technology and such, but the fear of sounding like I have no idea what I am talking about always takes over. Over the past month, working with primarily end users, I have discovered a self-confidence I never knew I had. It was comforting to know that I DO have something to offer.

Not to mention I have made an interesting realization. Itís a known fact that it is vital to stay current in the technology field. However, it seems like home users always seem to get the new technology first, and then once the usefulness is discovered, the same principle gets applied to corporations. Therefore, I can rest easy knowing Iím not going to get TOO behind doing home users at the same time Iím getting up to speed on ND6.

So thatís my story and Iím sticking to it. And in the meantime, I thank all my friends for wondering what the heck happened to me. I have to admit, it was nice to be missed.

Oh, and I canít forget my remaining hours are trying to keep Reboot under control and happy. Now, Reboot also happens to be a stick connoisseur, and this is one of her favorites. But, I thought Shepherds were supposed to be smart, and Elkhounds were known for their problem-solving skills?

Holy cow! Reboot got big! How old is he/she now? Domino's first b-day is next week!

No kidding... she's 40 pounds now. She's exactly 6 months old. It seems like it was just yesterday that we got her!!

I can't believe Domino is going to be a year, it seems like he was just a baby too!

Welcome back, Jess! I've been remiss in posting myself. I was asked to give you some serious grief by that other guy who claims to be part of this blog (aka, your husband) but have been so out of town I hadn't managed to do it. Glad you started posting before it was necessary! ;-)
