A Giving World...

I love to be part of the GIVING WORLD.

Those of you who are doing NaBloPoMo this month probably know that the topic is GIVING. (Or 'giving up' -- but I'm not much into that second topic, frankly!)

Obviously, GIVING is an important part of my life. I've been an active volunteer for almost my entire adult life, and I take it very seriously.

Ron is clearly a giving man, who will never be rich (or even well off). But karma? That guy has to be high on the list when it comes to good karma! And, honestly, I think that matters a lot more...

He got another computer up and running for me today -- and told me it's really FAST! I'll be doing some rearranging of equipment the next time I head in there, I think. Eventually we'll be retiring all the old stuff with Windows 2000 -- and about time! That means that anyone who has a Windows-compatible computer at home will be able to Remote Access (at long last). That's been a goal of mine since I became the IT Manager...

Yeah, I'm still struggling with providing enough equipment for everyone -- and keeping that equipment running as well as possible. But I think together Ron and I will make it better, anyway!

Even when there's stress, I seriously LOVE my life. Life is good. It's so damn good!

go me!

Hair? Colored It...

I almost forgot to mention that I colored my hair today. It needed it! (smile)

I generally try to get my hair cut first (which I did yesterday), then color it (today). It makes the most sense that way, as I don't end up coloring hair that will just be whacked off soon...

In cute cat news (smile) for today, Colin crawled into the 'tent' on the living room sofa. A tent is created by taking a blanket and draping it over the back of a sofa (etc.) so it makes a kind of tent-like area. Normally Henry is CRAZY about anything remotely tent-like. He loves to go under the bed-covers, for example. And if you have a blanket covering you while sitting in a chair, he'll go under that, too. But Colin isn't a tent fan, as a rule...

Actually, he did this yesterday for a few moments, too -- but Henry jumped on top of him and started biting him! I'm sure he thought it was a game, but Colin ran out quickly in ill humor, while Henry kept biting the now-empty blanket. (grin)

But today when Henry went for a repeat performance, I called him over to me and he left Colin alone. Colin remained in the tent snoozing for hours! So adorable...

Speaking of cats, Henry is beside me right now, curled up on Marilyn's mistressmarilyn computer chair (she's downstairs).
