Not much to say, ups and downs, life goes on...
And I am totally looking forward to a week on the beach in Florida with my grandmother, brother, sister in law, nephew, and niece. In no particular order.

power cords

Is it possible for a computer to have something wrong with it such that it keep making its power cord nonfunctional? This is the second powercord in about 6 weeks that's stopped working. THe first time I suspected a cat, but I've not seen either messing with wires particularly, and both times it's been only the computer cord that has anything wrong with it. What the heck? Am I just not suopposed to have a computer right now? Argh!!

Old Friends

I've recently reconnected with an old friend. It's really nice. We have a lot in common.
My cat is having issues. She got spayed, popped the stitches, got staples, and has to be confined to the bathroom, which she hates and mews piteously for hours at a time. (OK, to be perfectly honest I let her out yesterday evening. I couldn't take it. I'm keeping a close eye on her incision and trying to keep her calm though.)
Had some sugar this morning. Ugh. It didn't taste all that great, and gave me stomach pains and I'm now very tired. Not worth it. I still have that mental craving for it though.
My company got a new CEO, who we met yesterday. He has some ideas that will make this company a better place for me, I think. As long as they actually get done.
My brother is somewhere near a glacier on a volcano in Mexico!
Hi, Ryan!

Happy Naw-Ruz!!!

Naw-Ruz is the Baha'i New Year. I've always found it appropriate to celebrate a new beginning on the first day of spring, rather than the middle of winter.
So yeah, the internet I pick up at my house is pretty much worthless. I'm relying on libraries for now, until I'm in a position to get my very own internet.
Hmm, updates....
I'm over the flu.
Both kittehs are healthy and happy.
The weather is getting nicer, which I definitely aprpeciate. In fact, I got my first sunburn of the year sitting on my porch/balcony on Thursday. What can I say, it was a good book I was reading!
Work is good, but the hours are not. Still hoping that will change soon.
My brother is going to climb some volcanoes in Mexico: how cool is that!
I've completed week one of a six-week exercise program. They claim that at the end I will be able to do 100 pushups and 200 situps. I hope to prove them right!
I'm continuing into an intermediate dance class for Appalachian clogging and Cape Breton step dancing (which is kinda like Irish step dancing only a tradition that comes from Cape BReton, Cananda).
I am back on my allergen-free diet and feeling great about it, and because of it!
I did a Reconection, which is an energy healing thing. So far I've learned some pretty cool things from it:
*I don't need to move to a smaller town at this time (had been thinking about it; I got a taste for small town living in Massachusetts, it seems), but should stay in Asheville or Charlotte. I dunno, but my guess is maybe I need a larger Baha'i community right now.
*The reason I am afraid to be graet (see previous entry) is because I am afraid to be attractive to people. I don't want to have t be social. It occurs to me that when I'm feeling good, being social is something that comes more naturally and that I'm more itnerested in, but it seems I don't quite believe my own answer, because I'm still afraid of being attractive. Not attractive like rpetty or whatever, but attractive as in someone people want to be with.
*I've suddenly begun liking foods (all allergy-free) that I've enver liked before, and in fact even hated before. Like salmon. I've also begun not liking foods that I am allergic to. Very handy!
*I've been resistant to things like saying my obligatory prayer the last few months (the obligatory prayer is one said by Baha'is once a day). I'm being a rebel, it turns out. saying "Ha, no one can make me pray, not even God, just because He told me to" kind of thing. Silly, I know, but there it is. What I learned is that I do what I do beause I want to. No matter who told me to do what, I do it out of choice. My nephew gets told to do lots of things by people in authority. He does them most of the time, but sometimes doesn't. It a very apt illustration of the fact that just because you are told doesn't mean it'll get done unless you want to, and that the people telling me to do thigns (ok, not all people, but God certainly) know better than I do what is good for me.
I think that's all I have to say for now... stay tuned for my next random update!
Love to everyone.
