ABQ Aquarium and Botanical Gardens

Today I decided that I would forego a full day of sleep, and actually go out and see some of Albuquerque. I went to the aquarium and botanical gardens to take some pictures. It was nice and cool as a storm was moving in, and I spent about 2 hours there between both places.

Greetings from ABQ

Well I have been in Albuquerque for a week now, and I haven’t really done anything except work and sleep. I have been working 7pm – 7am pretty much every day, and this is my 7th day straight of that schedule. I really can’t complain, because I have done the math, and I will be getting what equates to a months worth of pay for 2 weeks of work. My paycheck should end up being for around 196 hours for two weeks, with all of that time being 2nd or 3rd shift with a holiday thrown in the middle of all of that. I think that with that check, and some other money I have headed my way, I will have my car and credit card paid off in the very near future. The best part is that I am slated to come out here the first two weeks of August for the 2nd round of our new software implementation, and that paycheck will hit a few days before Dragon*Con.

It doesn’t look like I will be able to have time to make any new costumes for D*C this year due to being out here, but I am ok with that. At least I will be clear of debt except for my harley and house, and that will be of more benefit in the long run.

Time for Some Traveling Music

I got confirmation today that I will be going to Albuquerque for two weeks for work. We are launching a new system, and they want people from the Corp office to go and man the launch war room. I volunteered as it will be extra money in overtime as well as a chance to add another city to places that I have been. Sirius is going to go to Atlanta while I am gone to stay with my mom and he will get to play with my nephew.

The one big downside is that I will not be in town for July 4th. I hope that I am able to go out and enjoy the holiday but I am not 100 percent sure what the transportation situation will be yet. I guess I will see once I get there.
