Update

In case y'all haven't noticed, I've been a very busy girl. It's been tiring and my energy is, at best, borderline and my computer time almost non-existent. Mea Culpa!

* Working takes a lot of adjustment when one hasn't been on a schedule for a while so I've been tired a lot.

* Jeff is off to Ireland. I took him to the airport this week and he won't be back for at least a month so looking in on Shaughnessy at the breeder is part of my gottados.

* The Census work is kind of interesting. It isn't easy because they are sticklers and there are a lot of protocols to be followed. Remembering everything can be difficult. However, I am getting some good walking time in. It's funny -- I got assigned Jeff's neighborhood. However, I haven't seen anyone I know other than in passing because his friends all sent back their forms. LOL

* I passed my inspection. My place looks pretty damned good. I spent $100 getting my crappy carpet cleaned for it and, as usual, Brad the Carpet Guy did a great job! I am determined to keep up with my chores so it's less work in the long run.

* Interesting news: Glen Beck's ratings have dropped by one third and sponsors are dropping like flies accrding to Media Matters. All I can say is "Hallelujah!"

* Tonight is First Friday and I'm taking a wee break to go hang out with my artsy friends but I'll be back to work tomorrow.

* My young friend Brice's darling little sister is celebrating her seventh birthday on Sunday and I've been invited to share her celebration. I call her "Racy Gracie" (which makes her giggle) because she is always buzzing the sidewalks on her scooter.

I couldn't decide among several videos I like and this one by the late, great Tommy Makem always makes me smile!!!!!



Happy Blogging!!!!

  2. I love the music. My sister is in an Irish band and loves this kind of music. I am glad to read your update. The Census was here months ago, I guess it is different in other states.

  8. Colleen: Busy yes, happy -- maybe.
    And thanks.

    Annie: The Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem are the best!!!! No, the census is everywhere now visiting all the people who didn't send in their forms.

    Dorothy: Am I content? I don't know but probably not. Most likely just busy so I don't have time to kvetch.

    AITBR: A life? What's that?

    Wild: You have my sympathy. I'll probably be back to that soon.

    LTTS: Jeff? Take pictures? (loud guffaw!!!!) He's worse than I am!!!

    Maggie: A momentary lapse after a
    productive week with little or no drama. :-)

  10. There's a lot to be said for being busy. It certainly keeps you from thinking sad thoughts.

    Great news about Glenn Beck. I hope this is a trend.

  12. I am trying to catch up on everything that has gotten away from me...like blogging!! I am happy that things are looking up for you. Glenn and Rush make me crazy. Their ratings can't fall far enough!! Hang in there, Kay!

  13. I was sorely tempted to do some census work over here. What put me off was another friend having to trawl the streets in a less than healthy neighbourhood, knocking on doors to help people fill out their forms.
