I am really starting to think my life has a bit too much drama. My car got totaled (I'm out 1100 bucks) then my S.O. had to get surgery because one of her nasal passages has nearly grown shut. So right now, I am using her car since she is on mild pain killers. I reckon I will bum rides until I get a new car. My daughter has been sick twice now and several local area schools have been closed due to a flu epidemic ... sheesh. On the bright side, the insurance company gave a lot back, I am lucky I am out only 1100. My daughter while somewhat ill, has been doing quite well in school and her behavoir has incrementally been improving (probably as the weather gets better). Work is going good (if not a bit boring at times).

In the Open Source world, I have not been getting much done, for obvious reasons. Frankly, I have been busy taking care of my family (ironic that only a few weeks ago the situation was reversed). Right now I want to close out a simple utility extension PR and move onto something else ... I have spent almost 2 solid "spare time" months working on similar extensions and to put it mildly - I am going nuts. Although I enjoy taking on tasks that I am experienced enough for or smart enough to handle, repetive ones seem bothersome after awhile.
