Welcome back !
Let’s kick of with the baby news. We just had a checkup and little Maximus is doing great, he’s now 2 weeks ahead of schedule. He’ll be a strong lad like his father ! We went to a session about breast feeding and will be going to a general session in a couple of weeks for all the other details. Only 2 months to go, time sure flies ! I bought a lot of cool stuff from ThinkGeek, I should have it on Monday. Awesomeness !
On the work front everything is still very hectic. But we migrated our website to the new platform this week without too many serious problems. Phew, very happy about that ! Still a couple of sites to go, but the first one should have been the hardest. Lots of changes there, my team is expanding rapidly, but I can only be happy about that.
Next week Kristof & Bart are going to Ukraine, this time I’m staying home and guarding the fort so to speak Looking at the temperatures in Ukraine at the moment I must say that I’m glad I’m not going, cold !
Talking about winter, the holiday season is rapidly approaching and I couldn’t resist again and had to make an impulse buy. The object of purchase this time is an Xbox 360 with Kinect. Now having all 3 consoles (PS3, Xbox 360 and a Wii) I decided one must go, so I’m selling my Wii. I got a good offer on it and will be selling it tomorrow.
To be honest though, buying the Xbox probably wasn’t the smartest decision I could have made since I’ll probably hardly play on it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an awesome piece of technology, I just don’t think I’ll use it much. I tried to bring it back to Mediamarkt under their “not satisfied within 14 days you can bring it back” motto, however it seems it only applies to unopened packages … How you can know if you’re not happy with something then I don’t know. So looks like I have a Xbox 360 now, could still be cool once there are more games out for it, we’ll see
The smart decision would have been spending the money on a new phone I think, since my iPhone 3GS still has the reboot issues in the middle of a call just like 1000′s of other people and Apple is pretending nothing is going on, no more Apple stuff for me !
Yesterday I went out to dinner with Ilse and Nick, had been half a year I think since we last saw them. They bought a house not too far from here so that should be cool Next weekend I’m going over to Valery, I’ll take the Xbox and Kinect, maybe I can sell it to her
