Short answer is a lot but yet not that much.
- Between traveling for work (San Francisco, Amsterdam, San Francisco again)
- Taking mini trips here and there (going to Nags Head this weekend)
- Taking a Vacation or “Staycation – meaning a vacation but staying home and having family visit
- And of course work
That pretty much sums it up but there have been some interesting stories along the way. Now if only I can remember them all.
First, it was great to have a vacation, to actually take the time to relax and not check email (as much.) That really was some time well spent and it was that much better to be with family. We had a great time going to Frankie’s and doing some mini-golf and Go Carts, went to the butterfly house in Durham, and saw a couple good movies. Other than that time was spent hanging out, enjoying the company of my brother and mom and watching TV or even playing some Xbox. Yup that is right! My Mom, brother, and I were taking turns playing some Peggle, and each of us were getting quite competitive. I should have grabbed a picture of my mom holding an Xbox controller! Classic!
Which reminds me, I would not recommend seeing “The Hangover” with any family other than siblings!
My trip and upcoming trip to San Francisco was great. It was only the 2nd time I had been on the west coast and I really enjoy the new scenery. The rocky coasts, trendy restaurants, sunny warm but not scorching hot days, and the history of San Francisco were all very nice. It certainly is a place to visit. I also got to see the Tanner’s house from Full House, drive on that super windy street that is famous for how sharp its turns are, I saw some cable cars, and the most interesting were how steep the roads were. I mean some streets felt like you were going up a roller coaster, cresting at the top, and then plunging without being able to see the road over the dashboard, crazy!!
Work has been keeping me really busy. I am still getting used to the new boss and his work style as well as some of the management processes. I have moved to focusing on analytics for the company which has me neck deep in excel reports, not the most fun but I do like numbers and analyzing figures so that has been a new challenge.
Other than that, not much else. I have not done much to the Mustang just enjoyed driving her. I did swap out the self adjusting clutch quadrant (made of plastic) for a steel one and added a firewall adjuster. Definitely provides a more direct feel to the clutch engagement and release. Many thanks to Bryan for helping with that. The Maxima still feels like its on its last legs with the starting issue. It might be a wiring issue because it seems to be inconsistent and if there are some wires exposed and touching with the hot and cold temperatures that could explain a lot! It does have over 190,000 miles so things like this are expected.
well that is all I can remember for now. I will add some more news soon
