ROW 80, Round 4, check in one, and sad news :-(

Bottom in chair, hands on keys for 30 minutes - it took two sessions, but it happened :-) I'll be taking my mom out and about for furniture and such things tomorrow, so today was also Take Care of My Floors day. I managed 4 rooms, two sets of steps before I switched to addressing a morbidly obese pile of paper clutter, and worked my way through half.

I'd really like to spend 30 minutes tonight on the Artistic mother program, but there's some unscheduled editing I get to putz around with that has to happen tonight.

I just finished reading the notice that Mr. Jobs passed away, and I think immediately of his exacting genius. Then, I think of his wife, who by definition of purely 'sticking with it' must have been some kind of saint. Then I think about how changed life will be for she and their children, and I say a prayer for them.

Then I think what the future of computing will be with him out of the picture for the next ten years he should have been productive for, and then I say a prayer for us.

We've lost an innovator - somebody who has made modern life what it truly is. I'm both worried and intrigued by who - by what - will fill his shoes.

RIP, Mr. Jobs. The world already misses you.

  1. Love the wallpaper. The white script is a little tricky to read though. Too bad 'cuz it looks so nice.

    I love your reference to an "obese pile of paper." I might just have to use that phrase. It's perfect!

    Anyhoo, all the best with Round 4.

    Happy ROWing...Stephanie

  2. Now the darker box appears, and I can read the script fine. Go figure!

  3. Hello Stephanie and thanks for popping by! Yes, the load is slow sometime - if ya ever see something just as pretty and more efficient, feel free to drop me a note!!

    The obese pile of, it's really let itself, ok, I have let it GROW! Pathetically, I've found myself heading back to it looking for something and said out loud - I really should do something about this....(Ya think?)
