Is anyone else having a problem when you post here with your cursor not showing up?



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

No, but I doubt I'd notice either way.

Kdc - good for niece becoming starting to become self sufficient and getting college started. I hope she doesn't abuse not having to be in school during the day.

I'm such a loyalist. I'd have a hard time thinking it's time to move on from a job that fast. I wish I could be as logical about it as you are!

In today's corporate world, long time loyalty to a company doesn't always pay - literally and figuratively.

In my situation - I may or may not leave at some point. but I am training and teaching my two employees. If I ever do leave, it would be the perfect opportunity for one of them to step up into my role, which is my ultimate goal for them.

I guess since nobody wants to tell me, I'll just send gman a card a day for awhile.

Yes, I know this intuitively, but I like the idea of consistency and permanence. I also always feel like when I'm ready to leave if I leave I'll be leaving my employer in a lurch because most of my projects are largely independent. It's the same thing with our church. The children's ministry is almost non-existent and I've barely heard a sermon in the last 7 years (it was actually better when I was running the nursery because there was more help AND two services so I could attend one without my family, but they aren't doing any of that now). Anyway, we should leave, there are lots of places in the area specializing in family needs, our church is focused on rehab, which isn't really a need for us. Yet, we don't go because we still want to fix where we are.... It makes no logical sense, it's a personality problem, maybe I need rehab for that

I'd tell you, but I count on you to remember these things so I don't have to. (I think it's Orc's birthday though, and that I do know... do you need a PM for that?)

Then I have to send another card out.
How come we didn't know Orc and Gman had the same birthday?

We do know that, because I have to find two birthday photos that day.... and I'm cramming to finish this stupid update that is due two days after, so I'm not sure how well I will do on the image front.... oh well. Orc hasn't picked out what I told him I was getting him this year either (and I need him to pick it out because I don't want to mess it up - it'd kinda a specific sort of thing.)

Hullo there, friends of the Internet!

Still waiting to get my car back. I keep telling them not to rush though because I have son's car. It's a big job. They're basically having to tear apart the entire underside of the front/back and dig deep into the engine.

• Replacing springs and all associated bushings. Lady said there wasn't much left of my springs.

• Replacing all radiator hoses, some of which go underneath the engine.

Thank goodness I extended my service contract when it ran out. This is coming in high enough but without it.... whew.

Got a lot done today - even dragged out the steam rug cleaner (which is actually useless) to do the "office" part of this room where the chair rollers seem to leave spots - dirty spots. Does anyone have a REALLY good, light-weight carpet cleaner?

Hope everyone has a good night. TT sorry about the expense of those car repairs. Did it also suffer hail damage? That was a huge piece of hail you showed us the day of the tornado.

Night all.

Wow, that sounds like almost a new car instead. I guess it's good you have the service contract or you would probably be car shopping. I hope it runs like new when you get it back.

I'm always curious, how boring is the night watch? I mean occasionally see a spammer here in the ebw, but I'd think the rest of woot would be just as quiet.

It's quiet until the rollover. It's not boring. There's a lot of sites! And I have a lot of stuff I do that not directly related to the sites... behind the scenes stuff.

I'm glad you have lots to do. I don't head over to deals much, I mean I could, I might find some cool stuff, but it's kinda like slickdeals.net and stopped checking it's main page ages ago. Sure I miss cool stuff, but when I have something I really need a deal on I just set an alert and am fine with that. I'm trying to get rid of stuff anyway.

Morning all. I did my two laps around the neighborhood this morning then came back and grabbed Maisy for her shorter walk. About half way through the walk, I see a dark shape dart by out of the corner of my eye. A bit later, it comes bounding up. The cat followed us for the entire walk. Probably about 1/2 mile or so.

Still not feeling 100%, but better. Looks like my afternoon meeting was moved up to this morning, so I'm probably going to leave early.

On a cheerful note, good morning and happy Friday! Weather looks good, hope it holds up tonight while I'm out in it...

I'm just hanging out, really.

No complaints, really. The only surprise has been the ongoing taste of nastiness, which in turn upsets my stomach and means I haven't been hungry all week.

The way I always saw that is, unless you are skinny, that isn't a problem!

It would be a problem for my mother in law, who's top weight is under 100. At times my daughter.

Thinking about going to the doc in the box and finding out if this sore throat is allergies or maybe strep.
My goddaughter is home from college with strep. She only goes to school 20 miles from home, it is not like they traveled to get her.
The little green flowers on the maple tree are out. I think I'm allergic to them.

Yeah, not a problem for a few days since I'm not skinny. I've lost 18 pounds since the first of March, only about 5 of it this past week. Lots more to go.

That is alot. Not that I wouldn't be happy, but most likely that is too much if you aren't trying.



I have decided this throat thing has been around too long for strep, it must be allergies . It will go away on it's own.

Oh, the rest has been the result of trying. I got back to jogging several days a week. 2 miles on the treadmill, and paying more attention to portions at meals.

Sorry about your throat. Ginger tea has become my 'throat feels icky' remedy. That, or the lemony-tea stuff from the Korean market--it's a jar, kept in the fridge. Has lemon peels and all sorts of yummy things, dissolve a spoon full into hot water and yum. Lifts my spirits if nothing else!

I could wander around the asian speciality supermarket and try to find it.
I didn't take anything just in case I went to the doc in the box.
I'll go take something now.
