I confess I am apparently turning into a Southerner: tonight it was 70 degrees when I was taking care of the herd and was thinking "it is getting chilly!"

I am a maroon... I can't figure out how to do a picture quote, so I just have to use words...

Tazzie, those pictures are priceless! I love the ride around cat and the smile on the golden...

and speaking of ... here's how I know I married the right guy.

Me: Strict vegetarian of 40+ years, not for health (and I LOVE the taste of meat... or at least I think I do/did; it's kind of hard to remember).

Him: Lifelong Fisherman. The guy he lobsters with, Mutha, gave him half a dozen lobsters yesterday, and DH saved one out of the pot for me to notch (a way of ensuring the lobster will be safe from the pot for the rest of her life) and throw back in to the ocean. Here she is sporting her new notch:

I confess I have a pretty cool big brother. My oldest brother isn't allowed to have a laptop per his probation (long story). He had a friend who had a newish laptop that he got some virus on and replaced. His friend for the laptop wiped and gave it to my brother. My brother gave it to me with the caveat that he be able to use it to download music whenever he wants. So, I basically have a new laptop. It's running Windows Vista, which I've never used, but I can figure it out. I definitely want to try this new software I found for writing. SHAXPIR: Software for Storytellers

I was also an idiot who put my ex's name in my username way back when he wasn't my ex. Now I'm atuck with it on this forum.

And thank you for saying that tiny. This week has been a bad one with depression and anxiety, and you made me cry a little with your kind words

@tinyliny , her you go V-Notching Regulations | Massachusetts Saltwater Fishing Regulations ? 2016 | eRegulations

basically, a notched female is a "breeder" and it's illegal to take them. Am I correct, @Captain Evil ? And yes, giving you a female to chuck back IS love!

This time, I revamped my resume and went in and actually talked to someone, instead of just handing in my application. Chatted with the receptionist for a minute about the position and what I do now and why I'm looking for something new. I told her that I may not have the specific training for the position, but that I'm more than willing to learn. Yesterday, I got a wild hair up my ass and decided to pop out a cover letter (using the same site I did my resume on...they have a cover letter tool that actually writes the letter for you!) and see if I could put it with my resume/application. When I went to drop it off, the receptionist actually remembered me! This may not seem like a big deal, but considering I can barely remember people who follow up with applications the day after they submit them...So, I'm going to go in Monday to see if I can talk to someone higher up than the receptionist.
Drafty I like this post 1000 times. Will keep my fingers crossed that a new job comes out of it.

You're putting your son before you, that makes you a wonderful mom not an idiot! Hope your day ends up being better than you think it will.

I confess that I don't really get the purpose of this daylight savings time thing but I adjust to gaining an hour (fall) better than I do losing an hour (spring).
