Going to take The Wife and The Girls down to Midway in about a half hour for their trip off to visit The Wife's family. Actually the trip is sort of to "clear the decks" so that I can concentrate on the "Crash Course in C++" that I'm taking over the weekend. It will be interesting to see how much I actually "know" of C++ come Monday ... in theory, I should be "trained" in it. Then it will be off to learning VB. Then maybe I can get somebody to give me a paycheck for sitting at a computer all day. Whooooopie. This course is in 30 half-hour units, which means that (given that I typically work 14 hours a day and spend 5 hours a day with the now-absent family) will give me all sorts of "free time" in which to get into trouble. Oh ... wait ... maybe instead of getting into trouble, I can fill that stack of purchase orders for Eschaton that's been building up whilst I've been busting butt getting the Sacred Sexuality Conference ready to roll. (sigh) Yeah ... boxing books is probably better than getting into trouble. Uh-huh.
Oh, wait ... I just had an AMAZING thought ... I could actually get more than my usual 2-4 hours a night of SLEEP!!! WOW! Use the time typically spent with The Family to SLEEP! I wonder what it would feel like to get 8 hours of sleep on consecutive nights?
