    It's after dinner, I'm seated and ready to squeeze in a bit of work before making a meeting in the game, and then - my PC decides to start doing some things extremely slowly. Refreshing the file listing in some Explorer windows takes more than a minute. I figure I haven't rebooted in a while, and do so, and the system eventually reaches a black screen and hangs. I had the game loaded and was playing it a bit to help be patient and try to let the PC sort itself out rather than rush it too hastily. ...

    The meeting with the estate attorney was actually useful today, and long story short, I am now a contractor for the purpose of supervising the implementation of my message board idea as well as one of the main data entry persons once the framework is in place. There's still a lot to have put in place between now and when that happens, but at least the long walk towards the ultimate end has taken one big step here, and the implication of regular communication means that this annual ritual of contacting ...

    Shoveling snow isn't all that bad when the weather is within the twenty degree range and it's sunny outside - it makes it easy to scoop the snow up in large chunks which can be removed cleanly from the pavement as long as you carefully flip them over.

    Her hands still hurt. You keep watching her seethe the breath in her teeth as she winces and grasps at her wrists. You watch her do this, and you keep doing things which don't help her. Why. She shrugs it off, usually, and comes around ...

    Today I was a bum, rather than get any work done. I'm probably going to keep pressing until every fume within me is expired and I am spent. I felt that I would have been free at the start of the day, but talking with my wife about the game led me to finish moving her character along. OK. Now maybe one more day of this will be enough to get me done. Ha, ha.

    Song session was pretty good today. Nothing drastically bad, and the only thing I could possibly complain about is that it took ...

    Waking up with my wife today was mostly for the best, though after putzing around after work and with songs here and now, I'm pressed for time to try to get exercise tonight before the rest of the day slips away.

    The next few days will be spent doing more tax form work and making sure I'm ready to go, though on that respect I'm about as ready as I'm going to get.

    Song session was excellent today. No play was really bad and there were numerous records. Still can't get ...

    The wakeup went without issue and I was able to go about my morning routine two hours earlier. I spent a substantial portion of the morning cleaning some products within a section of an aisle because there were a few dozen bottles of merchandise which had fallen behind and underneath the shelves, which meant that I couldn't get an accurate assessment made and therefore inhibited my task. Now I know for tomorrow that I shouldn't bother doing this at all and simply work with what I see and turn a ...

    Yesterday I spoke of needing a change to my routine, and sure enough I have come to embrace such a change as of today. On Sundays, and certain Mondays when applicable, rather than work 7AM to 4PM, I will work 5AM to 2PM. The purpose is to better facilitate how and when our work loads are generated, so there is a tangible benefit to doing this. A side benefit is that this is the same hours which my wife works, which means that we'll be able to coordinate our schedules to operate at the exact same ...

    I should probably take the 2013 tax book with me to work for a few days and get in a habit of looking through the pages to see if I catch anything in the periphery. I think I need a break in the routine. I had work, played some D3 with my wife, played songs, and am now writing this with an hour to go before I must be in bed lest I have too little sleep. That's all I have to report. Thrilling.

    Songs weren't all that great today, but at least I had two new records today, which is better ...

    Now that I have the Form 1040 work done and am starting on updating the Form 1120 series, it seems like now is a good time for me to start receiving more interference than normal through my other contacts. I've received a few automated mails from LinkedIn about people looking at my profile, I've received and responded to a headhunter that's looking to fill a six month position for a LiveCycle developer (which I think I can amply prove as being qualified for), and now today I had to respond to the ...

    I am approved for filing Form 1040 tax returns for the 2013 tax year. I'm grateful to have the process be done.

    Resuming the work on the 2013 Form 1120 series has been coming along for a few days now and has proven to be pretty easy to pick up where I left off. I've already done a few (very short and simple) new Forms from scratch today and yesterday and have had them completed within an hour or so. Other Forms like 8916-A are proving to be relatively easy to update since I know how ...

    A long night with pals on D3 leading into 4AM results in me waking up at about Noon today. I go to check the mail to see if I have an IRS response to my submission on Friday, and I do. I am not yet approved. One of the last two tests which I had an error with, which they acknowledged was fixed with the Friday submission, had another value on another Form changed in a revision to the test scenario which they attached to their response. It was published last November. Someone please tell me - why ...

    I'm exercising and listening to NPR, and naturally the discussion of the day is related to MLK. I'm not sure if there wasn't a segment or program planned at a certain point, or if what I heard was part of a program, but eventually this stretch of audio came on which interspersed his speeches with various songs, among which were covers of All Along the Watchtower and Over the Rainbow. After a while, though, it went beyond that kind of selection to simply sourcing Lennon's "Imagine" outright ...

    For the first time what I think are a few years, I don't work this upcoming Monday so that means that I can spend tonight at my leisure. This means I'll have the chance to tune into two programs which come on NPR at this time - Joe Frank and Wordjazz. It's likely that I've already heard both programs which will happen to come up tonight, and it's also likely that the latter will be at least as hokey as it might be enlightening, but it's an enjoyable experience which I have done with regularity for ...

    Fifteen degrees and a fresh, but not too heavy, coat of snow started to fall in the day. I was at work. I was on the salesfloor doing inventory counts within the grocery section, and it was busy enough (being a Saturday and all) that I couldn't hear overhead announcements, and that I was assisting customers finding things for a significant portion of time anyway. Apparently, my name was called to go out to help round up carts, but I honestly never heard it, and I wasn't individually hunted down ...

    The IRS response that I mentioned yesterday turns out to be an error and subsequent misinterpretation on my behalf. The attachment which they kindly took the time to send to me was my data that I had sent to them and was being shown in their Form display to point out exactly what was wrong. The other remaining error was easy enough to resolve once I had realized that I put the greater of two values, when the worksheet asks for the lesser of the two values. I need to slow down and take the time to ...
