Memorial Day

Happy Memorial day people.

Let's catch up

As you may have noticed, I blog a lot less these days, and it's not for lack of wanting to post. Is not that I don't have anything to write about, au contraire...I have too much stuff going on, and I don't get a chance to sit down and type a blog post, before some small emergency comes up, as we speak, we've left the kids downstairs and we are up in the bedroom, this is very uncommon since we usually give the kids full attention, so, let me walk you trough a typical day in my life.

It all starts early in the morning, I have my alarm set up for 7:00 but I am usually up a lot earlier, Martha gets up at 6:00 to go running, around 6:30 I am up and getting ready to go to work, this morning routine involves a lot of steps, including changing diapers, making coffee, getting dressed, taking a shower, (not necessarily in that order) I usually leave for work around 7:30, my drive to work is 10.9 miles and it takes me 32 minutes on average, 32 minutes of %$###@#$%^&& South Florida traffic. Then I get to work.

Now, it's funny, I love what I do, but work is still work, when I am there I get immersed in whatever I am doing, and it's like I have two lives, my regular life, and the life as a motorolan. I like working there even though it's stressful. Maybe because I am constantly learning new things, or because I work with good people. But at the end of the day, I am tired, and ready to go home, on the days that Martha has school, I leave around 4:30 PM in order to get home at 5:00, I make sure the kids don't kill anybody or themselves from then on, while Martha goes to class, everyday it's an epic struggle to get both kids ready to go to bed. At around 8:30 PM, I sit down and I either log in to work remotely, and/or I listen to my lecture online, and I try to do my homework, currently I am taking Foundations of Digital Signal Processing, with Dr. Taylor, he's the best teacher I've had at UF so far.

Martha gets back at 9:30, we usually talk about the day, we try to pick up the house, and I try to finish doing homework and stuff, depending on the workload, I go to bed anywhere from 11:00 to 1:00 AM, and then I go to bed to pass out and repeat until the next day.

Usually, I browse the blogsphere and delight myself reading from all you crazies, that usually happens at work when I am waiting for a build to finish, or when I am catching up on email.

So there you have it, I am leaving a lot of parts out, but sums it up. I wish I'd blog about all the things that come up at our lunch table at motorola, I sit with a bunch of guys who love to argue as much as me, we all run our yaks and get to discuss all kinds of subjects ranging from politics, science and technology. It is not unusual for one or more people to disagree on something to the point where one of them has to do a google search in order to produce evidence for an argument, it has happened more than once. That keeps things interesting.

Anyway, that's all for now. Got things to do, places to go, etc etc.

Be good to each other please.
