One of the things that has kept me busy is my recent acquisition of a new computer. I used to buy a new computer every 5 years to semi-keep up with the gaming curve. I'd usually spend a couple of thousand dollars on it, and it would be very good but not the best.

Hard to believe it's been over a month since I posted -- lots and lots going on. I've been using GTD to get my life organized, so I have lots of blog topics. I thought I would hit the most important one tonight -- mom :)
As I mentioned, she came through her first chemo treatment really well. The second one hit her like a freight train. She came home from the hospital dehydrated, and it turns out very anemic. She also is getting blood clots from her pic lines.
Now that the doctor is aware he is of course working on treating the symptoms. She just finished her third round of treatment -- actually was in the hospital over the fourth of July -- so let's see how she bounces back. If she bounces back really well, the doctor may let her go to Wyoming. I think it is one of the things keeping her hopes up.

Other than being exhausted, she is in good spirits.

One of my projects is figuring out how to balance my life better – I’ll post more as I read about it.

Don't take today for granted.

I've always wondered what Chance of Rain means. Does it mean there will be that much rain over the entire area over the course of a day? Or Chance for any given moment of a day there will be rain in one area? Or chance that rain will develop over all or part of the viewing area? I've always wondered at a time when I'm away from the computer -- but today I'll check Google.
From Carl Bialik's blog, it looks like different meteorologists define chance of precipitation differently. Some give the worst case scenario, but all use the term inconsistently. At least I've been confused for a reason. For What It's Worth paraphrases Weather For Dummies.
In conclusion, I can't conclude anything. However, I've decided what I really care about for camping is expected duration of rain for the area -- a storm or two is fine, but a day cooped up in a tent with my one and a half year old would wear on both our nerves.
