hello ONEderland

"Pass the sugar" demanded the Hatter.
"Are you mad??" replied Alice. There is no sugar in ONEderland! ... pass him the Stevia, rabbit."
"One drop or two?"

I am 199 this morning. I'm not going to celebrate too hard since it might not stick (grumble) but then again it might. This is the first time in several years that I've seen a 1 in front of my weight. It feels good!

I'm back to work Monday and it will likely be hellish with new projects and catching up on the old for a few weeks. I've been on holiday/vacation since Christmas Eve. I can't say it was a fun-filled holiday since Cro had such tooth issues, but I greatly enjoyed visiting mom and dad and also did accomplish defogging PHP a bit. Beginning to learn PHP was one of my main goals for the time off. Lots to learn yet, but it's no longer intimidating. I tackled getting to know the basic principles of the language and am pleased with my success. I set up my Apache server, configured it to recognize php, installed php and wrote a couple of basic programs. Yes, I'm on my way.

Even though the coming weeks will be stressful, I can take joy in being in the 100's now. Woot! Christmas isn't quite over yet either. Matt and I still need to get together and exchange gifts. I think we'll do that next week. Matt has been my best friend since jr college. 1988 was the year we met I believe. In roller skating class! Yeah, we had to take two physical ed classes per year and I chose roller skating as one of them. It was actually great fun (and I ended up with a life-long friend).
