Between fighting with Sparky, our internet being stupid and not allowing me to upload Sparky's data, stress, and my general malaise and lack of inspiration, I've put on a few pounds lately.
Not a good thing!!

Sparky and I have been fighting. He doesn't want to upload data and has been grumbling about that for a few weeks now. Changed the battery and it didn't make any difference (note to self -- don't buy batteries from Amazon -- they were old and I had to change it again -- losing the data because Sparky has been cranky). So, I did ALL the FAQ trouble-shooting last night, to no avail, and emailed SP.
This morning, I turned on the computer, went to my Spark Page, and Sparky downloaded immediately, just to embarrass me in front of a lovely coach.
Inconvenience of the week, #2: last weekend, I injured my right ankle, probably when my husband and I were moving awkwardly-big furniture. By Wednesday, I was snap-crackle-popping and limping, and on Thursday, I called in to J#2 because I was really limping. I've been icing and trying to take it easy, and ibuprophen is my new best friend.
So, today, my husband called to me while I was walking and I got distracted and fell, skinning my right knee on the carpet (oooch!) and injuring my LEFT ankle and foot. More ice. A week of work(s) to look forward to.
Thank for the venting opportunity -- done!
xoxo have a great week!

Good morning, sweet friends -
I just finished my normal banana-and-coffee breakfast, as I listen to Sarah Jarosz, the most remarkable young musician/singer/songwriter. It doesn't matter what time of day I listen to her -- I am happy and relaxed. We have a great set of cds in the changer right now.
We spent a few hours finishing moving everything out of the family room yesterday. The plan is to paint, rip out the carpet, and have installed the bamboo flooring that we traded for several months ago. This will be a work in progress -- we need window coverings and new windows in that room, too, so we'll get the window coverings as soon as we can afford them, then replace the windows when we've saved for that project. But, in the meantime, we will have a comfortable place to hang out. We haven't done anything to that room since we moved in in 1995, other than give it a coat of paint after we (read that "my husband") removed the ugly wallpaper right after we moved in. Years of kids and dogs mitigated against our doing anything more, but, now that the kids are really out of the house, we're cleaning it up (of course, part of me would really rather that they were here with me. I miss them terribly, and am so happy and proud of them for the wonderful lives that they are building now).
Things at the office have calmed down. I continue to work 60+ hpw there, along with going to J#2. In this exact moment, I'm annoyed with my law partner, not because he doesn't spend as much time there as I do, but because he is holding up a couple of projects that we both agree are really important, and I can't ascertain why he's doing this. A conversation for the week.
Yesterday I brought the orchids into the house from our lathhouse, and our livingroom looks cheerier for it. I watered and repotted, and have more to do. We're going to hunt for paint sometime this morning, and I'll replenish my orchid bark so I can finish the project over the next month or so. Lots of orchids. Big project.
I don't have to work at J#2 until 7 pm, so I feel like I'm having an entire weekend. I feel bad because I'm not going to visit my mom, but it's so rare that we have a weekend at home when we can work around the house together and then have some relaxation time, that I just don't want to spend several hours doing anything other than to have this weekend. I'll call her.
Time to get ready to paint hunt. Sunday morning 8:06.
Have a wonderful day --

I was covering a cafe break at JT2 tonight, and was chatting with a customer about the seasonal sweets (none of which I eat, and all of which are tempting). The customer asked me how I stay so thin working around all the goodies.
