Server upgrade . . schmerver upgrade! Along with growth comes expansion – – and it’s a good thing! All week long, Chris and I have been preparing for our big upgrade and I can’t wait until it’s over and everything purring right along. The new server just screams power! OOooh yea!

I tucked my 13 year old into bed tonight. Haven’t done that in a long time – – I just happened to go upstairs and head down the hallway into her room to whine at her that she doesn’t come down to give me a kiss goodnight these days. She tells me that she’s too tired ever since school started — she just flops into bed and crashes. She was curled up in bed with just a sheet . . I looked over to see the rest of her bedding in a ball on the couch in her room — so I grabbed it all and snuggled her in warm. It was nice.

My mom had surgery yesterday. Nothing serious – – she had her gallbladder removed after a particularly rough episode of stones. Blech! So.. lets see . . two years a go, my sister had an attack followed by the same surgery. A year ago . . my brother had an attack followed by the same surgery. This year, it was my mother. Does that mean next year . . . . ?

Cholecystectomy. That’s the official and proper name of the surgery. Either way, I don’t wanna.

I did my friend Deb’s resume for her this week. She’s not unemployed yet – – but she’s worried because she sees the writing on the wall. After a bout of ovarian cancer, intensive surgery and treatment — her employer has decided to start harassing her about little picky bits about her job. As Deb tells it, this company has a notorious history of getting rid of people who have high cost medical bills. I used to work for the same company – – only problem I had was a little issue of sexual harassment from the CEO. But I have seen them, time and time again, find reasons to terminate good, long standing employees after serious illness. It can’t be right – – but the way they go about it, they never seem to get caught. Although, I don’t know anyone who has ever brought them to task on it either.

A word about self-employment with a home office — make sure you get out of the house. It’s too easy not too. After some long days working, Chris and I went out yesterday . . . went shopping, had dinner and enjoyed some ‘us’ time . . and it was really nice. Truly amazing what it does for my disposition. Last month my goal was to begin setting limits for myself . . I’ve done pretty good on that so far. This month my goal is to remember to take care of me . . and of Chris .. and make sure we get ‘us’ time away from it all. We’re both work-a-holics . . so it may not be as easy as it sounds.

Last word for the night – – I am SO ready for the elections it’s not even funny. This election season has been excruciatingly long! OK – – nite nite!
