It’s a New Week!


New chances! New possibilities! My new-ish computer will be arriving! (I bought a re-furbished computer from Apple. Saved myself a couple of hundred dollars.)

That feeling of hope is of course struggling with, ‘Oh god, I don’t have the energy for yet another week, and a whole other round of disappointments!’

I quoted a favorite Joss Whedon line to my friend Chris the other day, and we laughed and laughed and laughed.  It’s a line from a song from the Buffy musical episode.

“Life’s a song you don’t get to rehearse, and every single verse can make it that much worse.”

Perfection.  Couldn’t have said it better myself.  And yet, I still hope for the best.

I’m going over to my friend Jackie’s today.  She’s going to help me upgrade WordPress.  I forget which part was scaring me, but something was scaring me.  This week is all about upgrading and confronting and dealing with all the new versions of everything.

That reminds me, I was thinking I’d like to try becoming a professional pet photographer.  I have to learn how to improve my photographs post-production, but I’ve signed up for an iphoto class to begin. This is Buddy, taken the day I learned he was finally gaining weight.
