same ol', same ol'
"So what's been going on?" you ask. Not much. Same ol' traveling nonsense. Back to Shreveport today. (If you now feel compelled to come to my house to steal, please at least weed a little before you go.) Work has been busy and won't settle down for awhile. I had a good mid-year review. And I'm presenting at our national gathering in October.
The leisure activities are a bit jam-packed as well. I have a ridiculous amount of Astros tickets (long story) so if you're interested in any extras, just let me know and I can include you on a mass email. I've had family gatherings and baby showers and will have friends in from out of town. There's the singles' thing at HMNS. The celebrations of The Brother's engagement. Weddings. I'm exhausted and some of it hasn't even happened yet.
The house. Hmmm...I got a new rug for the living room. It's the one I've liked for months and was about 60% off the other day. Woohoo! It looks great. The guest room can actually function as such. There are a few other decorative odds and ends. The new back stairs. The sunroom/craft room is in various stages of disrepair. Yesterday you could see sunlight through its floor for awhile. I just ignored it because, let's face it, that's freaky.
I have 3 1/2 weeks until vacation.
I think I've finally made a computer decision. Hopefully I'll have time to get it on Friday. I can't believe I've made it this long without a personal computer.
I also can't believe it's August. I feel robbed of summer because of all this rain. The yard remains a mess although we did make a tiny bit of progress the last few days. Time just goes by so quickly. I'm going to have to stop saying things like that because then you'll know I'm getting old...
