So... life has been kinda busy lately. We've enjoyed a brief spate of what I guess would be called Indian summer (or whatever the PC term is now) -- highs in the mid 60s and sunshine, it's been nice. Of course, it will not last. Work has been busy but in a good way.

Singing is very busy right now. I'm singing in 3 ( or 4 depending on how you count them) choirs: Oregon Chorale, Intel Singers and church choir. I'm also singing a concert this Sunday with a subset of the Chorale, it's a benefit. So there's that concert 11/4, then Intel Singers has 4 concerts in the week and a half after that, then the regular Chorale concerts will be 12/1 and 12/2, and we're singing at the Grotto 12/10. Eeep!

I am going home for Thanksgiving. It will be nice. I was just there 6 weeks ago but it will, of course, be good to be home.

Today would have been my mom's 77th birthday. I would have teased her horribly about being so dreadfully old! I miss her more than words can say. I love you Mom, rest in peace and pray for me.

So... had a nice, relaxing weekend, which I really needed. Saturday watched my recording of the Arizona-USC game, but the last 30 minutes were cut off (ARGH!). The defense was awesome! Offense, not so much, but still, they looked so much better than last week against OSU -- almost like a different team.

Sunday was just church and skating for a bit, then got my hair cut (was way overdue).

Today's my long day... skating lesson this morning early, then work, then choir practice 7-10. I'm tired already.

This seems to be the month for updates... I'm waiting for the new Ubuntu release to come out on Thursday, then later this month (hopefully) is NetBSD 4.0 and OpenBSD 4.2. Yay!
