merry christmas eve

you know, most of this christmas season, it hasn’t felt like christmas yet.  weather in the 80’s, lots of and bussel.  a funeral.  loads of work.  just not the normal christmas season.  so yesterday morning i decided, you know, it’s the eve before christmas eve and i’m not even in the spirit yet.  i mean we had pleanty of christmas music running on all of our stations, we had a tree up, i had decorations all over, but i just didn’t feel christmasey.

 so i broke out my music collection and made a compilation of some of my favorite christmas music.

put it on the car on my way to the office.   yeah, i’m on vacation but i had work to do there anyway so i got there around 10 and started working on a project.  mr meek wanted to get together on wednesday to install this new EAS equitpment on our HD2 channels that needs to be in place before 07.  The equiptment finally got here and i figured i’d get a head start on it so i dont’ have to spend more time in the office than i have to.  So after i installed the 1st one, i thought- you know Ken is going to wonder how i hooked it up let me put together some instructions and while i’m at it.. i can share it with the other engineers in the company.  So while i was hooking all those up, we had a show start at 3pm on KHKZ.  A christmas special from Disney.  Well the audio was there but we were not getting the network commands like, comercial break, and legal id and stuff.  so i started scratching my head, ended up i never finished the installation.  Well i did, but i had left the wiring open so that i woudln’t accidently make something go on the air that wasn’t sopoused to while i was setting up and testing.  So i plugged the final connectors in and vola!  I got in my car and headed to chruch to work on a video for kidstalkaboutgod.org  The weather was a crisp 49 degrees, the rain was falling, my christmas music was playing.  NOW it feels like christmas.  We got the video done and i headed to HEB to get some stuff.  Just some last minute things for christmas lunch and some stuff for the house.  I also neede some supplies to finish off my proposal.  I know this relationship timeline has been a bit backwards but it’s getting done. 

I’m not going to go into details about the proposal.  I wanted it to be special for her and all for her, but in the end she said Yes!!!
