April 19th, 2011what a day
We maintain websites at several locations, but we tend to suggest one particular server company… and right now they are down due to a nameserver issue. I’ve received 5 panicked phone calls from different clients… and multiple emails… but sadly, there is nothing I can do. So I sit and wait, constantly refreshing the “information update” page, following the company’s tweets, wondering just how bad this day is going to be.
Earlier I noticed someone was having a birthday on Facebook… so I went to post on their wall, and I was unable to see it. Did they do that on purpose? I don’t believe she likes me very much… we went to college together, but since then our lives have taken very different roads. I’ve often wondered if she’s just mad I parlayed my degree into running my own business and doing pretty well at it. She comments occasionally on pictures of the ‘Nut, and says she wants to meet him, but never goes farther than that (ie, actually meeting him).
Our honeymoon ended up being awesome, even though we missed the Peanut terribly. Italy was amazing – we really loved Pompeii, Venice and Florence. The food in Florence… wowza. I would move there for that alone, lol. Venice, we loved the atmosphere, but didn’t particularly love the food (very fishy-tasting seafood). Rome was hectic, but we stayed off the beaten trail and had wonderful cappuccinos and food (cheaper than being in the center of Rome) every day.
Now we’re back home with the Peanut, who’s growing way too fast. He’s starting to crawl(ish) backward, is crazy vocal and loves almost all the food he gets (peas = not so much). My parents loved being here while we were gone, and I’m pretty sure my mom would move here in a heartbeat, if she could only convince my dad.
