Nice while it lasted

Well, it was nice while it lasted... Hopefully we'll climb back up into the top ten again. :-)

Top Ten!

What a nice way to start my morning... I got an email from our publisher that Dreamweaver MX Killer Tips is in the top 10 best sellers for Computers & Internet books. It got up to #4 before I woke up they tell me, but dropped a couple slots to #6 at the time of this writing.

I'm sick...

Yes, I caught Gaetano's cold. My throat hurts... Gatano says, Mama no work. Mama sit. Mama sick. Hugs? So I'm going to do as he wishes and take the night off until his daddy comes home. I want *my* mommy :-(. She made me cookies and I ate all of them already... Mom's bringing more tomorrow. I love mom.

Gaetano's sick

After giving Gaetano his cough medicine last night, he started coughing more (as expected). However the poor little guy was not sleeping comfortably, coughing every couple minutes. I decided he needed to sleep semi-upright to allow the drainage to go past his throat so he would cough less. How do you get a 2 yr. old to do this? You can't just prop 'em up on pillows and expect them to stay that way. So, mama propped him up on his inflatable car bed and slept there with him last night, scooting him back up every time he scooted down. No coughing as long as he was elevated, and I would wake by his cough the moment he slid to a flat position. I'm exhausted, but I'll do this every night until his cough supresses. I can't help but think there's got to be a better way...

No emails...

Sheesh, not even one email asking if a power outage has kept me from adding new entries (see previous entry). Oh well... The answer is no, power didn't go out here, but about 20 minutes away the power was out for almost 2 days in some areas the news reported.

Anyhow, I've been busy working on CSS Assistant. This extension is going to be so much more than originally planned. I'm very excited about this one since it is something I've been wanting to code for over a year but wasn't skilled enough that long ago to pull it off. I still have a few hurdles to get over though since there are some rather advanced things going on, however I do have Danilo Celic as a co-creator on this extension to help when needed. I'll be revealing details about CSS Assistant as it nears completion. I'd say it is only at its 1/2 way point now, so it will be awhile but well worth the wait!

Blog while I can

I'd better blog now while I can... Winds here are thrashing about the house. Patio furniture went flying and plants have been knocked over. I'm sure the neighbors are all going to have a lot of mess to clean up. The winds have caused the power to flicker. I don't mind the wind so much as I do that it shakes the house and sounds like the starting rumble of an earthquake. Good thing I have the Universal Power Source, though one doesn't like to see if they really work you know... Anyhow I'll be shutting off now, and hoping that power lines are working in the morning. Last time we had winds like this power was out for a few hours.

Happy New Year

Belated Happy New Year! :-) Better late wishes than never right?

I've been busy busy lately, hence the lack of posts (although I'm pretty good about posting regularly even when I'm swamped). Gaetano is going through a clingy phase -- especially since he has a cold. All day long I hear his sweet little voice say things like: Mama come sit. I want you to sit. Mama kiss? Shake hands? I want a hug. I want to hold you. I want a kiss *now*. Hug, please? Pleeeeeeeeeeeease, I want a kiss. (I think you get the point.) I don't mind it at all, although it hasn't been very good for my productivity lately!

Yesterday I got an email from someone that read my interview in Inside Dreamweaver MX. It is the second email I've gotten from that interview. This one made my day though. The person who wrote was looking for a way to inspire his wife to get into web development with him. She felt she needed schooling to do so though. He felt my interview was just what he needed to show her that "all anyone needs is a strong will and some guidance". He's right! :-) It's emails like that which keep me going and make what I do worthwhile.
