ARCHIVE: October, 2006
This past weekend Jen & I went up to Montreal (outside of it actually) to visit her Mom. Friday, October 21st, was our 2 year anniversary so we took the day off and got outta dodge. It was a rather nasty drive getting there... it went from rain, to snow, then back to rain again. At one point, it was almost white-out conditions with all the fog and snow. But most importantly, we made it there and back safe & sound. We pretty much laid low the whole trip. I did take some pics of the dogs so I thought I'd share them with all of you since I don't post enough photo galleries. Click here for the photos!. Anyway, it's been a very busy week at work. Productive as all hell, but busy! So, with that, I leave you for now and hope to see you back soon. Cheers!

This weekend Jen & I are off to Montreal. Tomorrow morning actually... and I have the day off work too :) And I need it... this week was LONG after last weekend's work. It's amazing how tired you get without a day or two in between, most commonly referred to as a "weekend" :) Anyway, this one should be a good one. Hope you're all doing great! Later!

After getting back into town on Friday.... after a LONG drive home through traffic (almost 3 hours!), it was off to work I went. We did a major upgrade this weekend and upgraded our VMWare virtual infrastructure from ESX v2.5.2 to v3.0.1. There were a lot of challenges along the way, but that's where the pay off is. By the end of the weekend, it was a successful project. But at a cost... my energy! I put in about 30 hrs over the weekend and today I was feeling it while at work! Tomorrow I'm not in the office, but it's not a day off. I'm going to Microsoft's "Tech I/O" conference. Should be pretty good... but we'll see. If there's anything that I CAN count on from it, it will be a good lunch :)
Wednesday I'm going climbing! I haven't been in over a year and I'm really looking forward to it! I'm quite a bit heavier then the last time, but also stronger, so we'll see what happens on the wall. And then later in the week, Jen & I are off to Montreal. Friay is our 2 year anniversary so we're both taking the day off and getting out of town. Should be fun! Anyway.. that's all for now... hope you're all doing well. Cheers!

The weekend before, my sister Laura was up to visit. We went out Saturday night to party with Davie P to celebrate his birthday. It turned into one of those really late night benders, but was a ton of fun. Hey, it's only sleep... and I think I've finally caught up!
Anyway, not too much is new. Work's getting busier & busier and life on the home front is all good. Here's a pic from the weekend since I don't post enough pictures :) What a nice family photo :) K, I'm off to bed. Now that I've remembered that my site doesn't update itself, I'll make an effort to post a little more often. Cheers!
