Oh, excitement abounds here...I bought a shoofly.
I also babysat a puppy for a morning, and discovered that while Cesar might be the dog whisperer, I, my friends, am a puppy pooper. After a morning of fun with me, Mary returned to her sweet puppy who fell sound asleep in her lap almost immediately, and slept for two solid hours, waking up to pee, and fall back asleep once again.
The FBI has been in contact. They've locked our computer, they say, due to the fact that we have indulged in pornography or illegal downloading. Once we pay the fine, they will unlock it, the official looking message says. They have directions on how to pay this fine. Tim had just heard about this virus on the radio, so he was earnestly trying to explain it to me. We've been married long enough for me to know that he is neither a pedophile or a zoophile (is that even a word, for the good Lord's sake?) and I know for a fact that there is no sense to illegally download music since I never did find my Ipod, well, I stopped him right away, and assured him that I had no doubts. Dan Ralston? Get ready. Me and my computer are headed your way...again.
In the meantime, I won't be able to comment on blogs, since a single comment becomes an exercise in patience (patience, it would appear that I do not have.)
Work continues to be a challenge, but there may be a light at the end of this tunnel. I simply gave up. The woman was so very angry that once I got my work done, I wearily decided that she was going to be mad at me if I continued to work. She would also be mad at me if I read a book. So I sat down and in between laundry loads, I read some Maya Angelou and tuned her out completely. I have had a private chat with personnel and our building manager, who assure me that this is being handled.
I continue to look for jobs.
It is surprisingly cool, and I stood shocked watching leaves spiral down from the big maple trees in the back yard. Autumn is just around the corner.
The seasons are changing, and it is a reminder to me that nothing stays the same. Last blog post I was crying about changes. This blog post, I am praying for them. Life's funny like that, innit?
It might be awhile till you see me lurking about your blogs again. The old computer is way slow. See you in the next week or so.
