I'm really hoping that the work issues will resolve themselves - did a "working lunch" to get a fix in so I can get the output disseminated to the end it's a waiting period to see if this permanently fixes the issue.......sigh.... Read more

Back to business - well, *almost*..........

Turns out the issue was the power adapter going kablooey - causing the battery to drain down.........a simple trip to Staples did the trick! I SOOOOOO did NOT want to buy a new laptop! I should be able to include this in the credit card payoff... Read more

$#!@# laptop *shut down* and downright *died* in the middle of Sparkin' yesterday morning - what a pain in the seat! Am using an alternate and have a local place I'll drop it off with today - but the impact on my routine has been horrifying - c... Read more

For all intents and purposes that's just how I feel.........I truly *envy* those who have NO family.........anyone who tells you just how "wonderful" family is, well, you're gonna have to be an *INCREDIBLE* actor to convince me of that right now... Read more

My approach to points will change, starting now - I will avoid as many of the point opportunities as I can (it's just NOT. WORTH. THE. STRESS!)............. Skipped the evening event last night - while the day's events went well, the long d... Read more

Other than a mild tummyache and leg discomfort, the day went well - got things done and got needed rest.......I turned down an event that I really wouldn't have much enjoyed - I just wish that someone else wouldn't have asked me about it a *seco... Read more

Another weekend begins......

Got up later than usual, which will result in a later workout, but that's fine - totally doable......... Have a quick event to attend, and then some shopping/errands - no big deal - but now I've been blindsided by a requirement that is gonn... Read more

Starting VERY badly due to an extreme dearth of points - I mean REALLY, now, SP? Why even bother with this feature at this point? Stinginess is NOT a desirable trait - and could turn people away from the site.........perhaps the entire concept... Read more

WOO-HOO! About *time* things started to turn around!

Preliminary/obligatory vent mode on) GRRRRRRR! That "no html" message made me LOSE EVERYTHING I previously typed - STARTING FROM SCRATCH at 4:30AM IS. NOT. A. GOOD. IDEA! Please, fates, DON'T tell me that today will undo everything pleasa... Read more

Started the day with a bizarre car issue - thankfully that was quickly resolved with no muss or fuss - and totally for FREE! emoticonRead more

The perfectionism demon (along with anxiety and stress) - downer of a day yesterday, resulting in poor eating habits (R#!#@ that SPOUSE for his bad shopping trip - that sure didn't help things either)! GRRRRRRRRR! Is there ANY hope to get ... Read more

Not perfect with the eating, but I ramped up my activity so I think I'll survive on those grounds - now it's time to get back on my A-game and clean up the eating act! Holidays be da**ed! Read more

Chillaxin' from yesterday was almost *too* effective - when asked about when we would go shopping, I decided to defer that until tuday because 1) the requester followed up a bit late in the day, and 2) by that time the weather was getting *worse... Read more

Quiet morning - no plans other than perhaps some toy shopping for some charity events coming up........a bit cool and rainy, but that's OK (especially since I got my needed errands out of the way before the weather turned)..........soooooooo - I... Read more

Not thrilled with the reduced pay (my KINGDOM for fully financed holidays and vacays!)............but shortly I will reap other benefits from full-time work (and not a minute too soon, either - fortunately, holiday shopping is very miniscule, wh... Read more
