Last week, I was in Calgary to work though the third of six courses (exams) I have to take to earn my expert certification in ITIL. The classes are dry as dirt, but I always come away with ideas for how to improve things at work. I'm guessing that's the point. That, and passing the exams to get the certificates.
I won't be going back for any more classes until spring arrives. The drive to Calgary was awful - again - with a heat wave rolling in after a big dump of snow. I had to use my windshield wipers non-stop because of the dirty water spraying off the roads the entire drive, and ran out of wiper fluid about 3/4 of the way there.
Last summer, I had some skin cancer removed. It's the less-scary variety of skin cancer that should be gone once it is cut out; except that mine keeps growing back. What was a small mole is now a big scar across my collar bone. I went to my doctor in December about new spots in the area, and he prescribed a cream to put on them. Except, the cream costs $300/month. Yesterday I went back to the doctor to ask for a less expensive option and he scheduled another appointment to do some more cutting Monday morning. Dang, I have a lot of scars... I guess a few more won't matter.
My dad and I have been scrubbing the heck out of the tile floor in the basement. We've been pouring vinegar on it, scrubbing the grout with a brush, then using a floor polisher before sucking it up with a wet vac and then rinsing off with water. We've done this to the area twice... it took three hours both times. Improvements have been good, but it's not there yet.
