Returning the Favor

As I've said before, I've got a lot on my plate, these days. I'm trying to make professional obligations work to my advantage by also taking care of some health/personal concerns. To that end, I'm spending some time in Georgia for... I don't know how long, exactly.

Anyway, last night, my Mom asked how long I'd be here and I told her there's some chance that I could be around for as long as a week. We'll see. She asked if I could take a look at their high-speed internet set-up, at some point.

This morning, I went back and forth between taking care of my business and checking out their internet set-up. After quite a bit of multi-tasking, including running my mobile phone battery down, I was able to install a new ethernet card and successfully get them online. (By the way, if you're ever having trouble with a cable modem's usb connection, try the ethernet option, instead.)

As much as I've blown their mobile phones up, asking for advice on car repairs or whatever, it's nice to be able to return the favor, in this way. That's all.

Have a great day, folks.

Hey Bro, those visits home can be better than a tropical vacation. Great to be able to give back to the parents, even something little.

My wife and I spent last week in N. Carolina, hiking, shopping, and looking around at neighborhoods we might want to live in if we ever moved up that way.

Anyway, my moms drove down from Virginia to meet us in Carolina and spent the week with us. Nice time. And before she left I was able to set up a blog for her and my dad and show her how to use it. Little stuff means a lot.

How wonderful! Parents love stuff like that, especially my mom, and its nice to make a payment towards the billions of favors I already owe her. Matter of fact......let me call my Mommy now :)

Must be something going on in GA that I don't know about. I'm not official back West, just trying to do a better job of stopping by my favorites.

I still call my dad for help with tech issues. He tells me all my problems would be solved if I just went ahead and bought a mac.

Sorry for the delayed responses/posts, folks. It's been just as hectic as I predicted - and it ain't over, yet.

re: "how long you gonna be in the atl?"

I'll be leaving around 4 or 5am, tomorrow. Something like that.

Hope everything you have going on gets worked out.
