TUESDAY (yesterday): Crazy, Busy Day -- Photos, Website and More

So, I'm actually writing about TUESDAY, March 24 right now. (As I didn't manage to do it yesterday.)

I stayed home (yes, again) to continue working on the PHOTOS for Marilyn's upcoming 40th Anniversary Party (on April 2).

Speaking of, I know she asked that several of our LiveJournal friends be invited -- even though we both knew there was little chance of any of you being able to attend. Still, she wanted you to know that she wanted you to be there -- at least in spirit. Our LJ friends are very important to us! (No clue if those invites happened, as we simply handed over a list and left it to others. The last we heard many invites weren't getting to people! But hopefully that won't be a huge problem come party day...)

I have no clue how many hours I put into the Photo Project, but it's great to finally have so many of them together in one place! I've got them on my own external (his name is My Passport, believe it or not!), and then I managed to get them transferred to a jump drive and Marilyn put them on her work computer. I think we need to cyber store them, too. Anyway, I'm excited about them! I figure they won't use very many for the party, but we can have them for our own memories and use...

My lovely sister Sue took me shopping yesterday, so I could mostly get kitty litter and a few other important items. And she bought us both Starbucks, which was a treat. So sweet of her! We're both still trying to figure out what to give Marilyn as her anniversary gift, and her birthday gift (both are important events!). We're really clueless...

I got a lot of steps in yesterday, while waiting for Sue to drive over and pick me up. It was dry outside (and I had my festival jacket, which is quite warm), so I walked up and down in front of the house a ton of times.

We had crazy things going on with the festival website, which I just keep plugging away to resolve. I was convinced that one of the problems was ACCESS, and it turned out to be true. My email from Christine after that was admitted read: "Psssst. You are awesome." She really made my day, I'm telling you!

Last night was the final straw. You know, the one that broke the camel's back? I went upstairs around 9:30 or so to move the 'Marilyn Photos' off to a jump to give Leslie, and in the process needed to warm boot my computer. Then the damn thing wouldn't boot up again! I tried over and over again, just ready to bust. I couldn't believe those photos needed to go today, and they were going to be stuck on my home computer! Plus, my computer was going to be down, so I couldn't WORK today! No way! I was texting poor Donn. I never give the man much peace.

Thankfully after messing with it for an hour and a half I got it back up again! Thank God. I don't know what I'd have done. (Plus I would never have been able to sleep after that!!!)

Gosh, before I forget: I got an automated phone call from Fred Meyer. It was about a food RECALL of Amy's meals! It turns out they have a potential issue with listeria monocytogenes, which can be quite nasty. Some of our FAVORITE foods have been recalled! Just when we're trying to eat healthy foods, our food source gets yanked! This was national news, by the way (you might have heard it, or have seen it online).

You know, it's pretty cool that Freddies bothers to phone consumers!

I know I'm forgetting tons of things that I did -- and things that happened. But I'm too tired to think straight. Plus I need to actually post what happened TODAY. So I'll call this good!

Fitbit Update: Marilyn did 6,402 steps. And I did 6,810 steps. Not bad, huh? (Her goal is 5,000 and mine is 4,000.) We're hanging in there, anyway! Of course, Marilyn had wanted to do 10,000, but some days that just doesn't work out.
