To continue the last post:
Life has gotten in the way of blogging lately. First, as mentioned, I bought a new vehicle. The vehicle itself is fun, although more upscale than I've ever had before. For example, I never knew what satellite radio was all about. It came with the vehicle as a pre-installed option with six months of "free" service included. Now (after less than a month) it seems to be a basic life essential, like water or food. The stressful part was making the final decision to trade in my old, paid-for vehicle and then to endure the actual process of buying a new one. It took an entire afternoon of listening to descriptions about extended warranty plans, financing applications, options for anti-theft system, ect. Sign here, and here, and here. In triplicate.
Then there was the computer virus. My husband opened an email that appeared to be from a company he's done business with, but actually was malicious spam. Despite having up-to-date anti-virus and anti-spyware software, this virus persisted. After great effort and frustration, we THINK the virus is gone, although the computer still does not function at an optimal level. The problem is likely that all of the new protection programs are competing with each other.
Then there's work. I won't elaborate upon the details, but suffice it to say I don't have any break time for blogging there, either.
Oh yes, Laurie, I've been tagged. I"ll respond at some point, but it's way past midnight and time for me to try to sleep.
