Funny how a weekend this time of year can be a day or less, while in the 'off season,' it's three days. And you make the most (or least) of whatever you get. We enjoyed the movie last night and then took a ride to The Dalles today . . . the weather was pretty nice and mild and we only hit rain at the very end.
The most important part was the long nap in the middle of the day.
I'm looking forward to the upcoming three-day weekend, our last one until July. What follows is one-day weekend season, and a month of 7-day weeks.
(If you don't want to work your ass off, don't do special events.)
Tomorrow is media training for the prez, and then I hope Charlie and I can find time to work on the website.
We're basically hating have Windows 7 as our OS on our new home desktops . . . nothing seems compatible, including games and important programs we use all the time. You know what they say about hindsight . . .
Tomorrow we get the new copy machine at work, and hopefully that won't be too traumatic. We'll see. I usually embrace change, in everything but certain technology. And have I mentioned the camera on my new phone doesn't work?
Which brings me to an observation that how we deal with change--change in status, change in favor, change in health and age and attractiveness--is an important factor in a person's character. One of my favorite mantras growing up was the Serenity Prayer:God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
If we could all aspire to serenity, courage and wisdom, that would be pretty damn good.
