Crazy good

Standard

This week has been crazy. Today: online training, family therapy, interview at the station. That sucked up the entire day… and now it’s time for bed.

We’ve had some great interviews in the last few weeks, and another one coming up Friday. It’s good that we can keep the radio show going, even as busy as we are in the rest of our lives. What talented, compassionate people we are finding in our own community! I can’t wait to air the next few interviews (sneak peek: spay and neuter campaigns in Bend and around the world).

I can hear it snow

Sitting here in my home office {aka, the living room}, I can hear it snow. That can’t be right. Is it raining ice crystals? Hailing? Windy plus snowy? I can’t see much out the window, so I guess I’ll find out tomorrow.

Today I got the stray calico spayed by BendSNIP {yes, she’s still in my bathroom}. She seems to have come through fine and has been jumping all over when I visit her, even though I wish she’d be still.

I also got my laptop backed up and Windows 7 reinstalled {finally}. Just barely got it done and then took it tonight to Install-fest, pre-cursor to the RailsBridge workshop, a free intro to Ruby on Rails workshop {part of Ruby on Ales}. It will be fun, because I know next to nothing about Ruby, and since I’m not a developer, it will be a good challenge. We got a lot of stuff installed tonight. I have little idea what I did, but I did it, and it seems to “work.” I’m sure tomorrow it will all become clear.

I also snuck in an interview at the station tonight, in-between the cat and the Install-fest. That, plus dropping the kids off this morning, treadmill at the gym, and talking with a client, made for a full day.

Got the kitty checked out today—no microchip, no evidence of spay. Put a couple of signs up in the neighborhood, posted on Craigslist, called the Humane Society. Nobody has responded, and they probably won’t. Have a likely spay and foster situation lined up already.

So glad she’s not out in the cold and snow tonight!

{Funny that she kind of looks like Pip and the Cat Dreams cat.}
