It’s Been Busy Around Here Lately…

December 28, 2004 at 10:35 PM

Dad got his knee operated on this morning (for the removal of pins from an earlier surgery). It will take about three weeks for him to fully recover (if I heard right), so Mom and I will have to help him out in the meantime.

In the afternoon, I went with Pappy, who wanted me to come with him while he drove around a bit (to have someone to talk to - it also got me out of the house for awhile =P). Aunt Bonnie would've came with us as well, but there was a slight change in plans.

Grandma and Aunt Sherrie visited late this night, to see how Dad was doing.

Also, I'm still working on fixing up this template, though it seems a bit pointless, especially since it'll be almost completely rebuilt when my prototype template is finished.

(I'll get to putting up the rest of the Pre-Weblog entries when I get the chance =P)

Finally, I will not be here for most of Thursday (starting from 1:00 PM), as I will be at the church, to help show Connie how to set up the bulletin - moving things, adding new things, removing old things, etc.

(I started doing the church's bulletin in the first third of 2002 [possibly earlier, but I don't have records of any bulletins before that], and my final bulletin was for last Sunday - December 26.)

Christmas 2004

December 26, 2004 at 11:06 PM

This weekend went pretty well, given how busy it's been...

Christmas Eve:
I went to Granny's, watched some TV while eating, and opened presents, along with the other four grandchildren in her family (I'm the eldest of the five, by seven years).

Later, I played with Aunt Ronda's dog (her kids named it "Snowereven Walter of Washington", but everyone else calls him "Snowball" - even his name tag says that).

Before I went home, I talked with my Aunt Bonnie, who is recovering from the removal of a (benign) brain tumor. Her recovery is slow (the doctors said she would be in the hospital for four days, but she ended up actually being there for a total of sixteen days), but she's getting better every day =)

After that, I went home to get some sleep...and do some work on my weblog as well =P

Christmas:
We got up early, since my Dad had to get sleep later on, as he would be leaving for work in the evening. We opened up our presents, and had got quite a bit of stuff =)

After that, we went to Grandma's, and opened our presents there. That was followed by dinner (as always, it's overcrowded [her kitchen isn't that large], and I was forced to sit in the back, because I'm the only one in the family that can get in there =P).

After that, I laid down for most of the rest of the evening (getting up to say goodbye to Dad before he left for work) - I was tired from getting to sleep late, and getting up early.

Before I left, I spoke with a few of my relatives that I haven't seen in awhile.

After that, I left, went home, messed around on the computer for awhile, and went to sleep.

The Day After Christmas:
Not much happened this day...I ended up sleeping in and missing church (so did Dad, but that was because he had to go to work yesterday), got up, opened a card from my relatives (this one had a little snowman ornament attached to the envelope, which I took off and hung up on the miniature tree we have by the living room window), got food, and watched TV.

As for what I got over this Christmas weekend...I'll take care of that in a future entry. I can recall some of the things I got, but I can't remember all of them right now - I'm waiting till then before posting an entry on that =P

Welcome to Wolfey’s Weblog!

(NOTE: This is the first real blog entry that I have written/typed here. All entries prior to this one were originally part of my old site update list; they have now been merged with the rest of this blog [and are filed under the Pre-Weblog category] so that I can keep the history of my site intact...As well as making it easier to look through ^_~)

I've just got a blog set up here...And I'm new to this, of course, so give me time to learn it all =P

To be honest, I've been planning to set one up for quite awhile - Using a text editor to manually add the actual information (and code for proper display) for site updates, as well as any important events in my life, to HTML files (PHP will be used instead, once the template's ready - Overall, that will be much easier to manage) is not an easy thing to do, especially when you have to move entries around a lot (and also when you change your layout, requiring you to update all your pages with new code for it)...

...A blog (that will double as my site's update list) will take care of that problem - I'll actually be writing often now. Well, often in comparison to how much I usually write ^_~
