Friday was my last day – and the weather was poor enough (snow with freezing rain) that the company sent an email the day before telling people to work from home if they could. I am glad I worked from home – I think I was able to get a lot of documentation wrapped up and some last-minute things completed and handed off. Even if I had another two weeks, I still wouldn’t have handed things off properly. There would always be one more thing to work on, one more thing to clean up, one more thing to polish. And the kicker was that I wasn’t truly handing things off as much as throwing documentation and notes into README.md files and Wiki pages and hoping someone at a future date would find them and keep the ball moving forward. But, all things come to and end – I’m looking forward to my new job starting this week and I wonder what sort of things I’ll get into next. 😀

Earlier this week Jilli sent Kris a text telling her that a Mountain Lion was roaming campus. Students were to call 911 immediately if they saw it. I was concerned that her first reaction would be to call “Here kitty, kitty!” and try to pet it. My next vision was Jilli and her friends running away from the lion, each with their phones in their hands Googling “How to escape a Mountain Lion”…

Liz had a normal week at school. She and Kris spent a lot of time together since I had a lot of late nights wrapping up work and helping with my parents. She’s continuing to use her weight training bag in the basement, plus she’s starting to cook more and more. Ready to bake Croissant Rolls are being made frequently, as are Chocolate Chip cookies. I’ve eaten way too many of both this week – my post-Christmas weight loss isn’t working.

The cold/crud that I brought home over Christmas has left me, but is continuing to annoy Kris. She was just starting to get over the worst of the coughing when she hurt a muscle in her back coughing so much. She was in a lot of pain after school on Friday – she says even sleeping is painful sleeping on her back and putting pressure on the muscle. I really need to talk to her mom about her bodies warranty coverage…

Mom and Dad both continue to kick around AV. It was so cold and icy Saturday morning that we decided not to go out to their house so I rescheduled the home inspection for another week. We met with a new financial advisor this week, but I keep hoping we stumble across some gold bars or a hand full of un-sold “Berkshire A” stock certificates. Probably not likely, but I can keep my fingers crossed.
