Accomplished Quite a Bit, But...

Fresh when it gets here from Julie Barrett
Thursday, April 3, 2008

Oh, there's always a "but," isn't there. And mine is big. Trust me. It looks big in anything.

My cunning plan was to spend the day doing a bit of cleaning and organizing here in the home office. I did manage some of that, but....

There was an ant attack in the bathroom this morning. Welcome to springtime in North Texas. It's supposed to rain tonight, and the little buggers know it. This is the first time in ages I've had ants in this particular bathroom. I suspect it's due to the fact that the outside wall runs along the patio. Less dirt means less ants, I suspect.

All I know is that they weren't there when I went to bed last night.

I nuked the corner with ant spray and let it sit before I went in and cleaned up the floor. While I was at it I took care of other mopping and cleaing activities around the house.  I'd planned to do that stuff tomorrow, but no big deal.

My other big project was to bang away at the web server on the off chance that I'd done something the other night to screw things up. I was pretty sure I hadn't, because the code at the other domain is stable and I haven't made any changes to the static pages in some time.

I did get the pile o' old bills up off of the floor, sorted, and taken care of. I also managed to do some much-needed maintenance on the notebook PC.

So it hasn't been a wasted day; I simply didn't accomplish what I'd expected to do. Oh, well.

Now I'm off to read and relax.
