OK, I think this is what I'm going to do


I'm pretty sure this is where I'm headed.

Hopefully I'll make some improvements later, but I'm finding WordPress a little bit easier to use than Movable Type. I CAN NOT get comments to work under the MT upgrade, and I like the idea of starting fresh.

Woo Hoo. Let's see if this sticks.

Can't get comments to work. I'm done for now, must go eat black-eyed peas and try to change my luck.

Ok, I changed my mind again

I want to give this blog one more try, over here, at the old HGL site. Leave me a comment, will ya?

I just upgraded to the latest MT version, which hit several snags, and has left my server a complete mess... but it appears to be working.

So, without futher ado, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Not much to start with, I know. We'll see how it goes.

My Birthday Week

Hey, I didn't close the blog, just the comments! I'll open them up again and see how it goes. I'm still thinking about going to wordpress, but haven't spent enough time with it to figure it all out. (Thanks Terri for the email!)

Does anyone else celebrate their birthday week? I think it's a fine idea.

I started by taking Wednesday, Thursday and Friday off work. A very risky thing to do because I have so freakin' much work to do. I knew there was a chance of backfire. I was there until 7pm on Tuesday, just trying to get one thing done before I took off.

So Wednesday, my actual birthday, I got a facial. I haven't had a facial in about 7 years, so it was quite excellent and all spur of the moment. I only worked for a few hours that day.

Then Thursady, I went into the office for a couple of hours before I went to visit my parents and take them out to lunch. We had a nice time and I think I talked to them more than I ever have. This was the first time I went down to see them, and purposefully did not also visit my sister, who's a bit crazy and lives in a trailer in their backyard. I it made for a more stress-free visit.

Today, Friday, Sean and I got married. Check out the name of this blog, how could I not get married today: 08/08/08, the happiest good luck day of forever. So we went down early, and got married at 8:38 this morning. On 8th street. How lucky is that! We tried for 8:08, but we were working within a government office, so, you know. It was excellent, although Sean made me start laughing during the "solemn ceremony" and then I could not stop. No pictures though, we forgot the camera. Oops. We went out for breakfast after and it was delicious. Then we bought some lotto tickets, just for good measure.

Tomorrow, I have a Tai Massage scheduled. It should be awesome and I will probably come away from it a half inch taller.

Sunday, I have nothing scheduled. My favorite thing to do is nothing, so that should be really great! Except...I need to get some work done, so I'll probably spend a couple of hours doing that.

Monday, It will all be over. I have to go back to work. I don't even want to think about it. It stresses me out too much.

Knitting... Knitting. Well, I still haven't done any. Maybe I will drag it out during the opening ceremonies tonight.

I give up

I've closed comments on this site. I can't stand the spammers and I can't keep up with them.

I don't think I'm going to post again until I figure out what I want to do. I'm thinking about switching to WordPress.

If anyone has thoughts on this, send me an emal!

Nice Site, Thanks

The comment spammers are killing me.

I don't understand comment spam. How does it help them? Why do they do it?

I've tried to use some type of authentication, but I can't spend enough time on it to figure out how to use it.

I think I'm going to up my junk threshold and see if that makes a difference.

She puts the "Cat" in Catahoula...

As I was washing dishes the other day, Sean came in from the garage and said "do you know where your dog is?"

Cat in the sun.jpg

I totally get it. It's a nice sunny spot and she's seen the cat lying there a million times. I didn't have the heart to make her get down, it was so cute.

Well, it's been very busy around here lately. I'm in a knitting slump again. It's weird, but whenever I get really busy at work, I turn into SuperSloth at home. It's not like I'm busybusybusy, going places and doing things. It's more like I'm mentally busy, and I just have to do nothing when I get home in the evenings.

But I did have a little fun last week. On Friday, I had a visit from none other than Wendy from Lanas de Lebilula. She was on her way back home, and only had a few hours to spend, so we hit Rumplestiltskin's, had some lunch and hung out a bit. Rena and Picabou LOVED her. I liked her quite a bit too. And also, without her, I would have a parking ticket right now.

Auntie Wendy gave Rena a stuffed Kangaroo, and so far he has most of his stuffing. She must like him a lot to keep him around so long:


Thanks for stopping by Wendy! Let our home be your official Sacramento pit stop!
