My car odometer rolled over 175,000 miles on Friday.

I was going to try to make up the back owed to the house in two months. Ain't gonna happen - not with a business trip this month. So it's going to take three.

I have been in my pajamas since Friday night. Lazy? Hell yes!

Well, [livejournal.com profile] note_to_chicken is a dud. Probably because the name is lame. So sometime in the next few days I will be deleting it, and trying again with note2chicknshit (name as suggested by [livejournal.com profile] jemyl).

Yes, even I recognize when something is a flop.

But I had a nice weekend, even if I slept a lot.

I'm going to Consonance (http://consonance.org/) this weekend. That means I will only have limited time/internet access from Friday afternoon through Monday morning.

So don't expect any replies or other stuff from me after Friday evening until Monday at the earliest.

Have fun, all.

How about months? Years?

Morning comes lately
sleep was good and long
the plague that goes round
is nasty and wrong

So off to bed early
after a tech support call
friends and family
geek for them all

drama avoided
as we negotiated
we move in March?
seems to be fated

I still keep thinking
something I've forgot
between household and work,
and con and whatnot

irons in the fire
email deluge
juggling everything
my life is a kluge

I'm sick. I came down with the sinus drip/cough thing Friday night, and it isn't gone yet. This, of course, made sleeping 'interesting', or at least very broken. Apparently allergies make this crap worse, too.

Giftmas with Dad, Sister, and co went fine. My "fix" for his computer problem actually surprised him. My neice and nephews were all very happy with their bears and Leggo bonanza. I gave my sis and her hubby each some Book Darts, since my family tends to be book junkies. The home-made soap went over well with people who understood what they were getting (my sister doesn't... yet.)

I got a gorgeous dragon with a crystal ball light from my Dad and his wife, plus miscellaneous goodies from the sister and their kids (like gourmet coffee.... yum!) I set up my dad's new computer, and made sure that he could access that and his new email address.

A pretty good weekend, but damn I'm tired today.

Had my 6 week post-op today. The inside stitches have all absorbed properly, the incisions are all happy and healed, and I have a "clean bill of health". As far as I know, my ovaries are still working properly, but I never have to deal with another period again! I'm spayed!

Today we get to drive up to my Dad's house for Giftmas, so I'll be off-line for a few days....

The office as a whole sent me a nifty plant basket, too. The trick will be keeping it alive.

I still am hopelessly behind in my email and web. I did some last night, reading only "people" not "communities", and at skip=100 was still on Thursday. I haven't even looked at my email.

My hair, that is. It didn't come out as dark as I wanted, but that's what touch-ups are for. Yes, I had it done by someone, and my hair bleached (bright yellow!) beforehand.

Pictures may be forthcoming.

Well, this year we sold a whole $10 in two days of garage sale, 9 am - 5pm. Better than we've done any previous year, but still sucky. It still feels like a buttload of wasted time.

I have to go in for a pelvic ultrasound on Thursday (doc suspects fibroids). My period *still* hasn't started. The last one started the 16th, and I usually have a 23 - 25 day cycle. No, no chance I'm preggers. I don't think I'm due for menopause yet, either. I only have a few grey hairs.

Grandma's in the hospital, and it's not looking real good.

I'm late on where I'd like to be on the SiliCon work, but at least the money to have the program book printed is available.

No soap this weekend, too damn busy.

Warning! I am a total, complete, snarky mean, grumpy bitch today. I don't know why (probably because I have less than $20 in my checking account.)

You have been warned.

Rants available by request.

My blueberries have started ripening. Breakfast this morning was a few blueberries and a strawberry. Our Roma tomatoes are still green, but there are a lot of them. The mint under the faucet is growing big, too. The rosemary died because one of my roomies turned the water down too far... ;-)

I have completed 58/58 yellow, 30/39 black, and 1/95 grey granny squares for my smiley face icon afghan. I'd have more of the black done, but I didn't bring enough black yarn with me to florida (I only brought two balls, and I should have brought 3).

[livejournal.com profile] weofodthignen apparently has arrived at [livejournal.com profile] ertla's, but her computer isn't there yet, and neither of them has called me or stopped by. *sniffle*

The soapmaking project is proceeding. This week I bought a cheap pH meter with thermometer (surprisingly good for the price), molds, gloves, tea tree and neem oils, and a wooden spoon. I may use one of our spare crock pots, with the understanding that it only is used for soaping after that. I need to find my safety goggles, and I like to have a rubber/plastic apron, too. Yes, I'm an ex-chemist, and lye is caustic.

This coming two months will a little hectic, with SiliCon PR #2 and the SiliCon Program book due in August and September, respectively.
