Outages.

It seems my site has been up and down a few times over the last few days. I’m surprised I’ve even noticed considering the lack of attention I’ve been paying to it.

I’m trying to fit it into my schedule, despite the business of the holidays coming up. All of my shopping is done (woot!)…er, except for a couple of presents for some unexpected gift-givers this year. Those should be easy though.

I’m now using gaim for my instant messaging. I had to (yeah had) start using the AIM service to chat with some friends, and that means I now have user IDs on all the major chat thingies. AIM, ICQ, MSN and Yahoo. Gaim is great, and it’s free. I’m all for that. I almost shelled out the bucks for Trillian, but I’m glad I didn’t because gaim is cool.

Our tree is up!

I’m so proud. Our first tree.

We put it up Sunday afternoon after I got back from running around all morning. All of our shopping is done and the tree us up…all just in time for the first of December. It’s a new record, and not one I’m likely to beat for years to come. I wouldn’t want to do it any earlier anyway.

Brucie is fascinated with the Christmas tree lights. I just hope Porter doesn’t try to pee on it.

Don’t mind the mess on the floor. This was before we cleaned up our mess. 😀
