Oy. What a week!

Sorry for the silence of late. Last week was crazy. Highlights and low points:
  • Lucas and I went to visit my parents for the weekend. It was a crazy fast trip, but not too rushed, since I had Friday off for Cesar Chavez Day. What's that, you say? You don't get César Chávez Day off? My, your state must suck. ;)
  • My laptop's new LCD screen arrived, but it was the wrong size. When I went to take a photo of the old screen's connector cable for the vendor, I tweaked a wire someplace and now the computer puts itself to sleep and won't wake up. Yay me. And of course the laptop is out of warranty. Thank god I'm not dissertating.
  • Lucas is speaking more words now, and they're coming in a cascade. He's so much fun to be around these days.
  • The passenger across the aisle from me on one of my Jet Blue flights was escorted off the plane before it even took off, and his expulsion was totally unjustified. I call bullshit. Story at 11--I'm too tired right now to blog about it, but let's just say I owe Jet Blue a letter of righteous indignation, 'K?
  • Work this week appears to be a series of endless meetings. Wednesday includes lunch with a bigwig from the nonprofit foundation that supports my campus's course management software of choice. Should be interesting, but I suspect I shouldn't open my mouth because my sarcasm regarding this system is reaching mildly epic proportions.
  • I'm blogging from home, using my laptop from the office. It's a lovely machine, even if it is a couple years old. It makes me not want to really repair my old computer, except that we can't afford to purchase even a refurbished Mac right now. Bleah.
Lucas hasn't made an appearance here lately, and he's growing so fast that I feel the need to document it. Witness:

Damn, I love my family. Thanks, guys, for being a part of my life.

I am feeling cheated now because I didn't get Cesar Chavez day off ....

You may get Cesar Chavez day, but we get Victory Day in August. It's ok if you just don't think about how we achieved victory in August 1944.

Lucas is so big now! Wow!

And I will take solace in my Victoria Day Weekend.
