I hooked up the speakers on my new computer. WooHoo. Iceberg Radio and Pandora. As soon as Apple gets its password hack taken care of I will move my music onto the beast..
Older daughter has introduced me to Pink Martini. Its a nice counterpoint to Andrew Lloyd Weber and Cole Porter.
Next up: taxes.

I can ,or could, play most of that on the piano. Fingers going into position just thinking about it.

Sounds like fun!

I didn't reply to your comment yesterday, but I laughed about the PMS thing, too :)

Thanks you guys. It's cool. Comment all you want, or not, whatever. I do know the drill of bringing up a boy. I don't see this as permanent, but I would like him to be settled a little bit. LOL Pelly Northface jackets...here too. <nod nod>
I don't think it matters where you live. All 12 year olds want the name brand stuff. I want a Northface jacket -- they seem to be better made and look nice. It's time for me to get a new warm winter coat (the puffy kind that sheds moisture) and I like to buy things at the end of the season to get the better price. I'm cheap.:) That said, I'm probably like you. There's no way I'm buying expensive things for kids that grow out of them in 2-3 months. Once they're settled in their growing, it's worth it to get the good stuff b/c it lasts longer. Before that, no way.

It's so great you're letting yourself be excited about things again! Awesome.

You could get one of those estate selling people. They deal with antiques and they'll sell and advertise them and you just collect (after their cut). That stuff that you would not want is someone else's treasure.

You uh, switch hitting? Gonna try the best of both worlds for a while?

Jess! Someone in New Jersey won the megaball. Was it you? And can I have a million dollars? I promise I won't tease you for being a liberal and a Christie supporter... for a little while, anyway.

It was not me, unfortunately.

I have never hidden the fact that I am a fiscal conservative, but a social moderate. One of the candidates that I am supporting calls himself a Librertarian Republican. I love it.

not quite.... the stuff that's down there is either too cheap in the first place - my bio-GPs were teachers who got married in the 40s - or ruined by too many years in a basement that has flooded a few times since 1967. blech. we think most of it is worthless, but it still needs to be gone through, piece by piece.

my mom is starting to get antsy about getting hte house on the market, so we really have to face the demons and spirits down there. not looking forward to it, even though we won't have gramma trailing behind us like a puppy giving a lecture on every... single... item... and why it cant get tossed.

we will be having an estate sale when we get thigns sorted adn the true crap culled.

that's the plan.... there is one name has come up a few times as my mom has talked wiht others in similar situations. we have some "spare" furniture in our basement that is going to go into hte sale... i figure here's an opportunity to get them into the hands of someone who needs/wants it and out of my cluttered basement. It's unfinished & all storage, but still...

we;re clearing the crap (who wants 25 YO cleaning supplies???), letting the family pick what they want that is sentimental, then calling in the estate sale people. we'll be able to comply with the intent of the will and make things easier for everyone involved.
