Finally a Calm Week?

For the first time in a long time lately, this week seems it has all the makings of a peaceful one.

I THINK I’ve mentioned my last project on here, but I’ve finally wrapped up the one that was taking up WAY too much of time, plus I just got back from so-called “vacation” with my in-laws so I’m looking at a week wide open and one that ends on a holiday.

Life doesn’t get much better does it?

But better than just the fact that I won’t be super duper busy, the project I just wrapped up should cover my hosting costs for the rest of the year which obviously takes quite a burden off my shoulders.

So again I say : “Hooray!” And who knows – Maybe I’ll have the time to get some quality posts on here too! (But of course, don’t hold your breath. (#):) )

I NEED Yo Gabba Gabba Videos

Admittedly, this is something that should be going on my other blog since this is “kids’ stuff”. But hey, when you barely have the time to write on one blog, how can you be expected to post to two? Ha ha. So anyway…

As my kid is getting a little older now (he’s just over a year now) I have to find new things to keep his attention. (Especially when I have to do some coding or whatever). At the beginning there was Teletubbies. Now, there is Yo Gabba Gabba which is taking kids entertainment to the next level.

What is Yo Gabba Gabba?
Taken from its Wikipedia entry,

Hosted by a human character named DJ Lance Rock, the series features a mix of live-action segments with cartoonish costumed characters Muno the red cyclops, Foofa the pink flower bubble, Brobee the little green one, Toodee the blue cat-dragon and Plex the robot, plus many short animated sketches and musical numbers…The absurd style of humor used in the show is intended, like The Aquabats, to appeal to adults through its manic, frenzied approach to wholesome messages, while at the same time carrying all the content of the average Nick Jr. program for the whole family.

If you’re a kid at heart, you’d probably just describe the show as colorful, crazy, and musical that appeals to both kids and adults. No seriously, click the image below to check out a cool Yo Gabba Gabba video from ol’ YouTube.

Where are the Yo Gabba Gabba DVDs!?
Seriously. My kid LOVES Yo Gabba Gabba. It keeps his attention. BUT I NEED THE WHOLE SEASON ON DVD AND IT DOESN’T APPEAR AVAILABLE! ARGGGGGGGGGH! Currently I have to wait for an episode to appear On Verizon Demand and am stuck with that one for like two weeks. Me and my kid deserve better, we need better. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do!?

Sleep Deprived but Getting it Done

So I thought that now would be a good time to check in while I have a temporary break in all things considered “work”. Hope everyone out there is doing A OK!

Personally I feel like I’m doing pretty good, but at the moment I am WAY sleep deprived. See – My design company was recently contracted out to do some work (which I may or may not be allowed to talk about) and long story short it’s done in Flash with a PHP and mySQL backend and it is taking me forever and a day to get it done.

Worse yet, I estimated that it would take me X hours to do, and it’s probably taking me 6X this far so I’m probably being grossly underpaid too. But at least I can chalk all this up to a great professional lesson right? (#):) And prior to last night, I was running on no sleep (I just stayed up the whole night) so I was more than a bit loopy.

Outside of That
Everything seems to be going smoothly enough. I have my health, should be moving into the new house soonage, and hopefully I’ll have some time soon to focus back on my company and getting new clients which if you couldn’t tell is really my main focus right now. Not trying to put down my blog or anything, but I think focusing on my my web business will be the way that I can leave the 9-5, and actually have the time to seriously blog like I was doing before. We’ll see. (#):)

And thanks to a little internal war at work, I’ve become a bit of an achievement whore lately which (if you’ve ever been there) is taking up quite a sizeable amount of time when I let it. Thankfully the one year old usually runs up to me and takes the controller out of my hand so he can play himself if he sees that Burnout is the game of the day. (#);)
