I’m looking forward to today. Very much. I’ll be heading to Morgantown, West Virginia to spend some time with my daughter, Kari. Sure, it will be a whirlwind couple of days (it always is) — filled with shopping, eating, and more shopping — but she makes me so happy. I (mostly) don’t care what we’re doing, just as long as we are doing it together.
Kari makes me laugh almost endlessly. We get along so well. Like Sue tells me, she is the only person who I will voluntarily leave the house. It’s true too. Sue just shakes her head and when she tells people I have trouble just going to the mailbox. That’s also true. Is that a bad thing?
Funny, I don’t consider this a sacrifice. Not one iota. I’m where I want to be. I’ve always been somewhat of a home body anyhow.
So, I get to thinking, when was the last time I drove? Technically, the last time was when we took Ryan to see Dr. Hinkle. But, what I mean is the last time I went more than a mile or so. As far as I can remember, it was in early August. I drove a U-Haul to move Kari into her college house. Wait. I take that back. I drove to New Jersey in September to return some therapy equipment. I guess I’ll have to count that.
The reduction went off without a hitch… so far. I already sent in a request for another reduction. Hey, it’s easier to cancel it (if necessary). I’d rather have this in place and make a final decision to call it off later.
The rough draft plans just came in (at around 6:15 am). I can already see some minor tweaks I’ll want, but this should give you an idea of the work involved.
Ryan’s Wish List/Store
I was paying attention to the comments yesterday (as I always do) and was upset that I did a poor job on the Store. So, I made some changes to how this works. It should make things easier. I’m sorry the prior set-up was causing grief (I had no idea). Here are the changes:
- Moved and provided a link to an Amazon registry for Ryan’s Wish List. This already includes our shipping address. Items purchased from the registry should update automatically.
- Included instructions on how to get free shipping (when eligible).
- For products that I could, included national chains that also carry it (but you should check with the local store too).
If you would, I created an opinion poll (below) on the new layout and would appreciate feedback… good and/or bad. I want to make this as easy to use as possible. Don’t worry, you can’t offend me… I’m married![poll id=”52″]
