Just a Sunday-night-avoiding-other-things-I-need-to-do ramble
I have a bit of a hectic week coming up. Quite a bit of it I know I will have to spend on the phone, in voicemail tree’s from hell until, if I’m lucky, I get to speak to a person that, I am sure will be, cranky, tired, overworked and not really “feeling it” today. Yea, lucky me.
For some reason I’m not feeling terribly motivated to do stuff that I’m supposed to be doing. I’m hoping that a bit of rambling here will help break that particular log jam, but there are no guarantees. It’s not that I’m feeling lazy, it’s just that I don’t want to do it. I’ve actually have a fairly productive day.
Woke up at 6:30. Started re-working this site. Took a break from it, went to the gym. I came back, finished it (go ahead and check it out), did 90 situps (on the ball, but that still kinda counts, right?), went to the market, made dinner and posted the show. I still have some more work to do on that site, but it’s coming along nicely.
Bonus is that I got to use transmit a fair amount today and I’m pretty sure I don’t like it. You see, I haven’t been able to fully wrap my head around the Finder concept in OS/X. What can I say, I still think in terms of Explorer and it’s what makes sense. The Finder is wacky and it bothers me that I end up with 4 or 5 finder windows open whenever I start doing stuff. It’s been almost a year. How much longer until it clicks?
I did forget to tell you that my youngest cat had kittens. And, as much as a disappointment this is, I am not going to be turning into, becoming or otherwise known as, the crazy cat guy. Nope. Not me. I am sorry to say that the new ones will all have to go to the shelter as soon as they are old enough, since I’m much too poor to have 5 cats (the Mom and kittens) fixed, plus shots and other misc. kitty stuff that is needed on the newborns.
I’m feeling especially poor as I type this since I am temporarily unemployed. I say temporary as I should have fixed what I need to have fixed hopefully by the end of the week. While fixing is happening, I will also be looking for other means of employment (hence the site redo) or a few new customers. Once everything is fixed, I think it would be quite satisfying to be able to say “Ok, it’s fixed. Here is my notice”. We will say it’s a long story, but one that I am sure I will tell you at some point (quite possibly after the fix). And yes, it is money related. Lovely.
I’m sure that is also what is triggering this particular bout of not wanting to do anything. I’m going to make some pudding and come back. I’m sure that will help. Oh! And there’s Cool Whip! Everything’s better with Cool Whip!
