Been busy. Sam has started football practices. Kev worked afternoons last week, so I had to run the boy around (with help from sister). Joyce started official basketball practices. Joycie's garden is going to seed! My dad's surgery went very well, and he's home now and walking. Walking! Got Sam's closet all cleaned out, and his room, too, and new bedding yesterday. What a job that was. Nathan is building a computer for me. Yay!! He should be able to get it finished tomorrow. I am so excited about that.
I was taking my work laptop home each evening, and usually spending part of my evening working. That got so old. I hate working at home. Oh, sure, it can be real convenient, but what I end up doing is ignoring home at home and working. Though using the laptop to blog, etc. was pretty convenient, since my old computer downstairs in our basement doesn't have internet capability (it's old!), and the kids both have nice computers with 'net on 'em, but in their bedrooms. Not super handy for me. 'Sides, they're on them usually when I want to use one. So now my work laptop is only, only for work, and I get a nice, beautiful new computer of my own. It looks gorgeous on my nice, beautiful new computer desk.
So now I'm at the office on a Saturday (again), but I've promised myself that August is going to be the month that I really get through some of the stacks of work I've had piled up for too long. And I'm totally kicking ass. I was actually a bit excited about coming into work today and finishing up some more stuff. Well, maybe not excited, but definitely energized. It just feels good to get this stuff off my desk (and away from over my head).
