My blog is no longer a word verification free blog. I just can't stand the spammers anymore. I apologize to you for having to do it and my hope is that I only have to do it for a short time and then I can go back to moderation, but somehow, all that spam has stopped going to my spam folder and is now invading my inbox. Not sure what happened there.
Anyway, my experience with using word verification on some other folks blogs is that it has gotten much better and the words easier to read and I'm hoping that will extend to my blog as well.
So, what's happening with me? Teenager's got straight A's. I know that part of it is our crackdown after her last report card. But, she's got straight A's! Celebrate when you can.
After three days of dealing with my company's helpdesk, we discovered this morning that a step was left out of the instructions, and it made all the difference. Just one little detail. But, it took 5 "not on the clock" hours of me trying to figure it out and three calls to the helpdesk before one lady said, I haven't heard you say you did this. And, when I did that, I was in.
Rob came home last night after I'd tried the latest list of "stuff to try when nobody understands what's wrong" and I was stuffing tortilla chips in my mouth like an arborist feeding a wood chipper, crumbs probably flying everywhere. I think he understood when I smiled and said that sometimes frustration just needs chips to go with it. But, I never raised my voice. I didn't even growl in frustration. So, chips were a small price to pay.
I sew. I walk in the garden. I read blogs. I work. I cooked a roast last night. Life goes on. Welcome to the doldrums. Please let me live vicariously through your exciting blog posts. I promise, I'll pay you back when I get some excitement going in my own life again.
I guess I could celebrate that we had a roast to cook, huh?
