I have 2.5 days left of freedom before summer vacation! I am proud of my kid, making it through Junior Kindergarten. Every day he says he wants to stay home but I'm pretty sure he has loved it.
So in between projects here, I have managed to finally update my portfolio with all the new books etc. It was really easy thanks to this platform, juicebox, which is the newer more snazzy relative of the simpleviewer site I had originally built years ago. I am proud of myself for getting to this! It's needed doing for over 5 years so, ta da! I like how my expectations and goals shrink due to the lack of time and space for them, due to the kid. Now that he is five, its way, way easier, but I still can't get to a lot of stuff, and I don't really mind. Oh, also, I turned 40!!!! Finch turned five and I turned 40. Holy Crow. Its kind of a mind bender for me, who perpetually feels like an awkward 15 year old.
I also updated my about page using good old HTML. I feel so analog. I have files on my old computer, that's now in the kitchen and used mainly for ITUNES while I cook ( yes I have heard of IPODS and wireless speakers) and I have to run up and down the stairs , shouting "Let's see if it worked!", to my new computer to test it as I upload it to my server via an FTP and edit it with appleworks on the old computer. Very silly, I am sure I could find a way to do it all on the new ( now possibly old already ) MAC in the studio. ANYWAY, I AM 40 after all. It takes me a while to get the old brain chugging.
