Jordan's i870 arrived yesterday and was assigned a phone number today. I called in to have her put on the rural and fleet ID that Dani and I have.
Shortly there after, Dani's new phone, the i850 showed up and I had that activated on her number. I showed them how to use them and went to work. Worked from 1pm to 9pm. Fairly good night, 2 activations, but I feel the likelihood of return on these units is high. Customer had to many questions and wanted to many service guarantees. Came back from work, Dani was bringing in the laundry about 10pm. The tanker committee was meeting at the Fire Dept, so I went over there to see what they decided. Looks like we are going to get an Elite Power tanker. This will be a GREAT improvement over the old tanker we have been using.

Had a pretty busy Tuesday. In linux class we had a test on chapter 14 and then we went thru chapter 15 pretty thoroughly. Lecture lasted the whole morning and we didn't get a chance to do any lab work.
Got home at about 1:00PM and slept till 6:00PM, got up and went down to the Fire Dept to get my flu shot and recertify on CPR.
Went and visited with Dani at the Citgo and then went home and laid down again from 10:00PM to 10:30 and went to work at Standard Process.

The rest of the day at work was pretty uneventful, as life at Brookfield Square will be. On my way out, I stopped at Game Stop and saw they had the Indiana Jones trilogy for only $39.99, so I snagged it along with Superman II. The first Superman is good, but I really liked the second one with General Zod, Nod, and Ursa. Lets see if I like it years later.
When I got home, Dani and the kids hadn't gotten back from my Mom's yet. So I ran over to Video Pix and rented Stealth. On my way home from the video store I saw Chief Rutkowski on his way to a village board meeting. I didn't think we had one tonight, after having a special one on Wednesday. The only really interesting thing discussed at the meeting was the additional antenna that Verizon Wireless is proposing to put on the water tower. I asked for clarification about the nature of revenue from the Verizon proposal, and President Johnson says that all revenue generated from the project has to go to the water dept. After the meeting I mentioned to him that they should have also negotiated free phone service for DPW, Police, and the Fire Dept. I also mentioned the possibility of having a company like Verizon sponsor a tanker for the Fire Dept.
Went home and watched Stealth, talked to Donna for awhile in Yahoo! Messenger and then had to do my homework for class.

Before class today, I went to a Sprint Vendor Rally at the Country Springs Hotel. It was pretty entertaining, Samsung was there and I got to see their answer to the Motorola Razr. I played around with it a bit, and I think it's better the Razr, which I have never really been a fan of. Also there was Palm, Boost Mobile, TeleNav, Motorola, and Comet Tracker.
After visiting all the vendors, there was a drawing and I won the UTStarcom CDM 105 pictured right. It's a decent phone, but I will probably sell it so I can purchase an i850
I was going to skip out of the Rally early, so I could make it to class by 8:30, but wanted to stay and see if I won anything. As it was, I was only an hour late for class, so it wasn't to bad.

It rained the entire time we were there, but we were still able to complete 5 evolutions.
WCTC's compressor was down, so we had to take Dousman, who was nice enough to let us use their system to refill all of our bottles.
Now that I am home, I am VERY sore. I'm going to be hurting tomorrow!

I feel the interview went well and I got a tour of the plant. I really hope I get this position.

Mom's taking Aaron to class and he is adamant about going to complete our final exam. So I decide to go as well. I had to much trouble focusing on my test and Todd let me go advising me that I can make up the test later.
In the hospital, Dad doesn't look good at all. He is unconscious, on a respirator, and every other machine imaginable. He is in total system shut down and the Doctors only give him a 20% chance of surviving.
