I can't say that everything has even come close to getting back to normal yet, but things are settling back in to the old routines with a few new twists. I think of my father just about everyday, and remember him as he really was, both the good and the bad. I don't mean to say that he wasn't a saint, but he was far from a devil by the same token. I'm holding on to the honest memories of my father, in an attempt to come to some inner peace of my own.

In other areas of my life, Lori and I have joined 24 Hour Fitness and have been going regularly. I'm sore all over, but I think it's for the best.

I still hate my job, but the employment picture might be looking up soon.

I'm going to try to get back in to coding on Themis very shortly... I've been to the IRC channel a few times, but it's been dead quiet even when there are other people there each time I've been so far. I hope I'm not making people uncomfortable.

Hey! Whoever you are at Palm that keeps visiting: #1 Thanks for checking in on me from time to time, and #2 drop me an e-mail or guestbook entry or something... I *know* you have my e-mail address from a certain mailing list, and if not I'm sure you know how to get it... :-)

I think that'll do for now... I'm going to find a nice hot rock to crawl under...
