This is life!

Well! The last few weeks have been real busy at work, home and studying for this PE (professional engineer’s) electrical exam that I am taking at the end of this month. I missed it by two points last time and hope I pass this time around. My wife and I have been also busy brainstorming on our business that we are thinking about launching by next year. There are a few hurdles that need to be crossed. I have had to self teach HTML, Javascript to work on the web page for our company, which has been both frustrating and fun at times. I have created the HTML files and an order form file. Next steps I have to learn are how to link them to the main front homepage and how to launch on the net. Seems so hard right now, but we will see. I guess I am just too cheap to pay someone to do it or may be it is the engineer in me that is driving me to learn some programming. And then there is soccer, which all three kids are playing this year, and one of those I am the coach. Can’t wait for Thanksgiving weekend, when all of this would be over and I can just sit on the couch and relax. Oh, yeah, I forgot, we also moved into this fixer upper house that we bought last September. My wife and I had been working like crazy fixing it. May be I will post some before and after pictures of it one day. You will see what I mean when I say fixer upper. We literally had no kitchen for whole three months. Had to gut out everything. New wiring, plumbing, drywall, tiling, cabinets, appliances and sink. I feel like a mistry, tarkhan, lohar, jat, etc. –all in one! I mean there was nothing. By December, we all were so tired of eating out that we did not want to see another subway, Mcdonalds, Pizza etc. for a while. Finally, by grace of Akal Purakh Waheguru! we finaly have a kitchen to cook real food. Next project, get ready for rainy season and put a drain around the side of the house.

Hey, I guess all of this is nothing. Sikhs are supposed to be in Chardi kala and radiant all the times.

i love fixer uppers! i wish we had bought one 5 years ago but my wife (the practical in other words NO FUN!) wouldn't go for it. our commute would've been really nice. but then again i'm not the handyman in the house she is. and it really helps if you know something about construction of a house when you buy a fixer upper.

and about your commercial web site manjit, i can help you. i won't do it for you but i can point you to an easy-do-it-yourself stuff...i used to take on small projects but i just don't have the time anymore. i asked gurumustak if he knew any sikhs in punjab need of work and he said he didn't.

but anyways...tell me what you want in a web site. (i promise i won't steal your idea! :)) and i'll give you pointers. you don't need to learn any programming but it helps to know a little.
