Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

I haven't been home in over 2 months.  I know some of you wouldn't understand why I am so fixated with going home.  I have never lived further than 500 miles away from St. Louis.  Just enough space to keep my parents from visiting me every weekend, but just enough space to go home.  This past year has been a big whirlwind and last week was the culmination of my insanity.  I kept telling my friends I am coming home.  I will be home this weekend or that weekend in February or January.  I'm usually home for my dad's birthday at the beginning of February, but stuff just kept me away.  I was sick or exhausted or Johnny was sick or exhausted.  I know I don't get enough time with anyone in any place.  It just feels like bits and pieces of being here and there and hanging out with this person and that person.  I never though I would have to sacrifice my monthly visits to St. Louis until last year.  My dad was the big idea for my public speaking shenanigans.  I guess in part I see him less, because sometimes you have to make a choice.  You go this way you get to do this, but you go this way and you also can't do that.  Yeah he calls me every day or every other day, but it's not the same as seeing him every other week like I did before.  I miss my dad and my best friend, Leah.  I can't remember what I did last time with either of them.  I can barely remember the last time I saw Jaimie.  I have the privilege of working remotely, so I figured now is the perfect timing.  My dad has wifi and my old bedroom is unoccupied, so I'm going to go home from Sunday to Wednesday.  It's going to be pretty jam packed and it will feel like I just said hi when I have to leave as usual.  I don't even know when I can go back again.  It might not be until MOSS Camp St. Louis.  I'll be in Boston, Tucson, and Tulsa in most of the weekends this month.  I used to take for granted all the time I got with my family and friends back home.  Like it was always going to be there and no one could ever take it away.  So I guess it's about time to go to bed...I don't even know what to make out of this post.  I don't really feel that much different being 26 and 364 days old, but who knows maybe that will change tomorrow...Can't wait to wake up in my old room and eat cherry black forest cake.   Have a nice morning night or evening catch you all later.  I won't be tweeting or posting for a few days if things go as planned.  One more bug and lots of people to see in the evenings.
