Minnie Mouse Digital Download

The other day I was finally going to check an item off of my list and create the Minnie Mouse digital come inside door sign.  It happened to be the day that a bunch of sites were taken down for a while due to a cyber denial of service attack.  Etsy, Pinterest, Twitter and a bunch of sites were down.  Ok, well I guess I won't get my Minnie Mouse done.

Well, now my son is taking a nap which is not going to be good for us come bedtime, but he fell asleep in the car after we were at a friends football game and stayed asleep on the way in.  Yesterday he fell asleep in the car too and I carried him into a store and got him back into the car, went to the mall and got him into the stroller, did what I needed to at the mall and got him back in the car and he woke up as we pulled into the driveway.  He got about a 2 hour nap in while I did all of that.  He must be growing again because that is unusual.

End of an Era

A few weeks ago I got an email and the subject made my heat race for a brief moment of panic.  It was notification that in 30 days my PMP (Project Management Professional) certification would expire.  For anyone that isn't familiar with project management it's like an accountant letting their CPA go.  When I quit working my 'go to an office job' I knew I would not renew when the time came so this did not sneak up on me or catch me by surprise.  However, seeing those words was a little surreal.

I did enjoy my job for the most part, the people, the company overall were really great.  The pay was pretty darn good too.  Of course you have days from H E double hockey stick but that's anything in life.  I do not miss my 'going to an office job' it at all.  I don't miss the commute, I don't miss long hours, I don't miss working on someone else's schedule and terms.  The only thing I wouldn't mind doing again is working with Microsoft Project. …
