Ah, it's early, and I need to get going, it's been a long week.

I was able to get the flash done for a tv commercial!
I was able to repurpose that flash as an intro to a website.
I was able to launch the reveal for the teaser site I did before.

and! flickr has added collections!

Go ahead, check out a ton of our convention pics! All nicely organized now.

So, I'm still consulting, happily for another marketing company. Getting close to 10 hours for today. Brain is a bit hurty I've been bending CSS and Wordpress to my will, but can't get my actionscript to behave. :P At least I've had lovely Dr. Who audiodrama to keep me company.

Overall, I find I'm happiest when I have web work to do, and it is nice to have some pressing deadlines. Husband is depressed I don't have a full time jobby job. I don't mind contract work as long as it is steady, but the buyout restrictions seem to have already cost me a potential position. Best I can hope is that someone will be happy enough with my quick and quality work and hire me on full time, no matter the restrictions.

Even though it's not quite classified as desperate times...

We're moving in with my father-in-law. Partly due to my on and off work schedule, but mainly due to our desire to own a house this year at some point. So... we'll throw most of our secondhand couches and furniture and pack up everything but my art desk, and our work clothes. Carlo has already purchased some storage that basically everything else will go into. I can't really say much about the decision, it's my fault we're making this choice, so I really can't put up much resistance. It is, however, the best way to save money for a downpayment for a home of some sort.

This kind of change is hard to take though.

Day 2.5

Whew, the first 2.5 days at the new gig were great. The people are really nice and cool, the work is completely full of things I can do, yay for css, xhtml, php. There is a preference for both php and web standards if possible.

I'm working on a pc with a nice big monitor. It's totally ok for me to bring in my ibook and listen to music/podcasts while I work.

Still trying to figure if the beltline or 113-M is a better way for me to go.

Using my skills and brain for the web stuff is good, if a bit tiring. The last month and a half was just internet researching, which required critical thinking, of course, but not a whole lot of mental problem solving.

I hope this gig has lots of ongoing work for me. It's nice.

Add the drive home placing me at home around 6 or so, and you get a relatively quiet introspective dreamling who eats her dinner and goes off to read and then sleep.

Mom should fly home from Cancun today. It's been so strange not to be able to talk with her all week about the gig, and Christmas and everything. We're a close family, so we end up phoning or at least texting throughout the week. She did manage to call my bro for a couple min this week so we'd know she got there, and that the torrential raining had made it almost impossible for her to get scuba certified- the main reason for going.

I actually had a dream the other night that was kinda like a roadtrip mystery, ending with me accosting some blond lady just before I woke up, asking her 'Where is my mother'. awww. poor subconscious. hehe

So, started my new gig today, after a relaxing morning off. So far I really like the place and people. I hit it off with my supervisor. Wish I could have gotten those silly css drop downs to work this afternoon though.

My new boss told me about at time he got stuck in an elevator! he ended up having to email for help from a open wireless connection. hee
