Good News. Bad News. Whatever.
Feb 18th, 2009 by Babs

<div class=\"pavatar\">Good News. Bad News. Whatever.</div>

I’ve come to the conclusion that ADD and old age do not mix. It’s bad enough being a scatterbrain but the addition of senior moments results in very little getting accomplished — or, at the very least, the wrong things getting accomplished. :P

For example: I was supposed to get the color scheme to the Lavender Room laid out as well as install, activate, and configure a bunch of widgets/plugins before uploading some actual content. Instead I spent the day playing around Max’s site, after learning that an older theme I used here had been updated. I did get the scheme work done, but that’s about all. I was also supposed to exercise. Somehow I got distracted by a shiny heart rate meter I saw online.

The State portion of our tax refund arrived today. So after dragging the preteen to his doctor’s appointment, I went to Target and picked up a new phone. Living with one phone (even a cordless one) is a pain in the ass. Unfortunately they didn’t have the cheaper model recommended by Consumer Reports but $40 isn’t too bad. Once the Federal shows up we’ll get the struts replaced on the Taurus and, if there’s enough left over, get the transmission worked on. I’ve also been promised a new light for my aquarium, so that I may finally grow some decent plants to provide oxygen for the fish. 260 watts is a whole lot brighter than 48. If I time the lighting correctly we’ll have a fairly well lit livingroom at night, too boot.

Been browsing through Minuteman’s online course listing. They’ve finally got some courses on PHP and MySQL. They deal with the web site design end of things and while I love working on web sites, there’s not that much money in designing them these days. It should get my feet wet as far as the code goes, though. The course on starting an online crafting business looks interesting, too. *laughs* It’s a shame I can’t seem to make any real money doing the stuff I love.

One more thing. I was cleaning out some of my old computer files and found this:

The Gang

That should embarass the hell out of a couple of people on my f-list. Bwahahahaha!
