I’m not even contemplating quitting.

Ok, so that’s a lie. My blog name or domain or something technical-sounding needed renewing, and I ignored the deadline for a while. Why SHOULDN’T I just give up the blog — I rarely write anymore. I’m busy, the kids are bigger and yet still demand a lot of attention, and I’m working part-time now. The real reason I find blogging such a ginormous pain in my expanding backside is that our laptop has joined the big dead laptop crappile in the sky, and managing photos and any complex blogging procedure on our laptop is a lesson in patience and blood pressure maintenance. I don’t think my body can take any exciting features, like, say a photo inclusion.
We have ZERO percent left of room on our hard drive. That seems to be a problem. Apparently we have over 160,000 photos on the hard drive. I’m pretty anal about organizing them. All photos are foldered by day, within a month folder, within a year folder. I’ve actually started the process of moving them to an external hard drive. Then I noticed the month folder of Jojo’s birth is missing, as are the folders for the first half of November following his birth month.
I’m pretty sure the computer Gods are trying to drive me to drink. more.
Speaking of drinking, did I tell ya that I gave up coffee? AND, AND, AND POP (or soda as some of you weirdos call it). Done and done. I haven’t had coffee since before Christmas, but I did sip a ginormous Coke Zero at the Hunger Games movie yesterday. It tasted good, but I’m not neeeding a Diet Coke twice a day, and my migraines have decreased from 3-5 a month to one just before my period. Awesomeness.
So yes, I saw The Hunger Games. It. Was. Legen…wait for it…DARY. Loved it. Loved the books. It was as good as I expected. THANK YOU MOVIE MAKERS. I’m in the need for a gripping book/book series, as the books I’ve been getting from the library recently, while favorably reviewed by others, are just tough for me to get into. Anyone want to suggest my next great read?!
Well, see, that wasn’t so hard. As long as there’s one of you lovely friends out there that smiles when reading this, then I’m happy to continue. I just may not have pictures or smelloblogvision or flash animation for a while.
