I'm caring for my dog.

At first I freaked over the fact that I have nearly a $6,000 vet bill and now there is no work, but I think it was a blessing in disguise. Oh, it's still going to hurt with no income, but this could have happened mid season when I would have lost business and probably clients because I needed to stay home to care for my dog.

Hoping he can walk again in the next few weeks. Hoping for snow so I can make some money again.

I revert to my old job and try to drum up a few programming jobs. I usually only get a web page or two as other coding jobs tend to want a long term worker.

I have never been so bored.

I'm watching shows on Netflix, or writing code out of boredom, or play;

Rehabbing a sore elbow for the first time in my career. I'm not complaining, being outside beats my old desk job by a long shot.

I've been home sick for a week so I have designed and started coding a new website read three lawn care books and one on composting and just starting one on irrigation.
Drew up a partial budget for 2012 and am changing around some of my services as well as adding a couple. I may go to the book store this weekend and see if I can find a book on landscape lighting.
I had some mods done to my trailer and am having the snow blower tuned up before the next storm. Oh ya did all my Christmas cards and started planning my spring marketing.
So been pretty busy but going shack wacky not being able to go outside all week.
I went out for a bit today just around the yard but when the cool air hit my lungs man did i start to cough so I had to come in after 20 min or so.

I forgot, I've also got to convalesce this winter. I'm going to schedule my hernia operation sometime this month.
