Update... Website, Lunch with Sue and More

I actually had lunch with sister Sue suzy_qp today. We went out for Mexican, and brought food home for Marilyn (who paid for it all). We talked and talked and laughed and had a GREAT time!

Marilyn didn't even get a lunch break today, so at least she had food to come home to! She and I watched a couple episodes of "Jeopardy" while she did the treadmill (go her), then we ate.

Then I played some Zuma, believe it or not!

I spent the day -- and yesterday -- working, aside from going to lunch. I did an eBulletin and worked on the website, which is coming along nicely.

Recently Marilyn has done two radio interviews were they raved about what a great website we have, so that's pretty cool! I did add a lot of new photos this year and change some code, so I think it does look a lot better than in 2009.

But Marilyn should take a bow for all the work she's done on our blog, which is rocking! The entries are fascinating behind-the-scene stuff that both Staff and Board Members have shared (with Marilyn doing the work to put every entry up).

And our interactive calendar is really catching attention! No surprise, as it's totally cutting edge. There's really nothing else like it anywhere. And we've been there from the beginning, helping to beta it...

And the (very) good news is that my right foot really feels BETTER today! I'm still favoring it (limping a bit), but I could actually flew it today and the swelling has gone down a ton. And most importantly, the pain is only minimal, which is cool! (My blood count was lower today, and I figure that's related to the pain, as well.)

So it looks like maybe I can go to the office tomorrow, if I feel like it. There are a few IT things I should check out, although there's happily nothing really pressing right now!

I had a few IT issues that I addressed from home today, but no big deal.

It's almost 11:00 and I'm yawning, so I think I'll head to bed. Whether I work from home or the office, I have a lot to get done tomorrow! In one month, this puppy will pretty much be over. I can't believe we're less than two weeks away from the festival!

Yeah, I totally need to get started on the GFP script. Maybe tomorrow (???).

I have more than 1,050 Followers at Twitter now. I try to Tweet a couple times a day, when I can. And as you can tell, I blog daily. And I've become a bit more active at Facebook, too. So that's the Social Media recap!

I don't care what people say, the more you do, the more you CAN do (as Marilyn always says). It's so true.

Nicole has her upper braces now (green), but wouldn't show me. I told Sue to quit nagging her, but did assure Nicole that one day she'll be glad for those braces. That child is so damn pretty there should be a law. (And she has an older boyfriend... sigh...)

Oh. And we watched some of the movie "Disturbia" on TV. What a good movie. Good story, good script, good cast/acting and good directing...
