I'm sorry to cause you guys any concern. Many of you have written or called and I really appreciate it.
It appears that my last blog post came across much more cryptic than I actually meant. I didn't know that some of you would read into it and conclude what you did. Some of you who follow me on Twitter, probably understood it more than those of you who only read the blog. There were some hints there last week.
Let me dispel the nasty rumors first; my marriage is fine. We're not in any trouble. We've been been a tough stretch of luck lately and changes ahead look difficult. Difficult but not impossible and certainly not insurmountable.
Wednesday afternoon, I received a call that my wife's Aunt died while eating dinner. She lived upstairs from us and my wife and daughter were extremely close to her. My daughter got to watch as the EMS guys tried to revive her. My wife and daughter watched as the Aunt was declared dead and body bagged. I arrived home just in time to hold the door for the coroner as they carried her out.
So Saturday, we buried my wife's Aunt, who was also our landlord. This means that we're going to have to find a new place to live soon. It's going to be hard to find a place that will take our dog, cat, 2 adult children (16 & 20) and all my BBQ equipment. This is first and foremost in my mind lately, so if any of you know of a place, with a reasonable rent, please let me know.
Sunday was a wedding of two close friends of ours. It was a beautiful affair, and I wish the couple all the happiness in the world. They're off to Italy, with the daughter of her first marriage. I just wish I could have enjoyed it more. This housing issue is weighing on my mind.
Today, I was awoken by the sound of a mail server crashing at one of my top clients. It wasn't the best way to start the day. Then, later in the day I stepped out to get a quick bite and left my keys in the server room. I was locked out. If any of you know a good Exchange expert in the NYC area, I can definitely throw them some work.
Speaking of work, if there's anyone out there looking for a can I say "great" computer guy, drop me a line
. I could always use some new clients. I'd entertain job offers as well. I've been building networks for and supporting small businesses and home offices for the past 10 years and have lots experience with the big companies as well.
So in conclusion. We're OK, you're OK and the future's so bright I gotta wear shades.
