I missed the start of summer. It was days ago, and too much resembled other days in a long string of days. It just slipped by. I also have been publishing to my secret blog and, you know, there just isn't enough time or attention for two.
So hi! I'm in school and working. My hair stays in a messy bun. I'm gardening, and sleeping a minimum of 7 hours a night. I'm raising a daughter, two dogs and a cat -- all of whom start pacing my side of the bed at 630am, impatient for food, for attention, for the day to start. Last year's teenager been packed off to college and there's a new one in her place; a lanky, slouchy tween. Our bedroom had been just moved downstairs, then back upstairs to make room for the step-daughter . . . and in the process, which seems to be long-term, things just settle where they land.
My phone is full so I can't take anymore pictures unless I use an app that creates smaller files. I'm an operating system and 35 app updates behind modernity. I can't get relief uploading from my phone to my laptop because my laptop is full as well, also unable even to be updated. I'm in a total data bottleneck. It took me 9 days to back up my computer to a cloud -- and now I have to also save everything to a TB external hard drive before I start deleting files to make room for all the pictures I'm not taking. All this time, I do have a airport time capsule, but it is not storage as it deletes old backups, and it has already been fried and replaced once.
So that is the state of things here, in case you were wondering. I'm gonna do this blog as soon as my broken toe heals, as soon as I can bench press 95lbs and when my roses are deadheaded. Plus, I've got some quadratic equations to graph. Also, it's great fun to menace this 3yo with hugs. See her squeal as she tries to get away? That's how you do summer.
