Pull Up a Fence

Oh, bloody hell. (Sorry for cussing) I just came in here and realized I forgot to put this up. See, I’m still working on stuff around the house, and today was Fencing Day. Manservant Jim came over, and he and I spent the better part of today freezing and wet outside resetting a bunch of fence posts, hunting up and installing a crossbar, and finally just beginning to install the wire before we had to quit. So I didn’t get in at any point today to write the Pull Up. Truthfully, I forgot about it until just now. My mind has been crazy busy for a while now. And I’m not sure when it’s going to settle.

Meanwhile… share what you’ve been up to this weekend, and whats on tap for the rest of the week? I’m going to take a hot shower and drink about a gallon of hot chocolate to try to warm up!!

    It’s been another mellow weekend. My boss isn’t giving me too much of a hard time (so far), although I do have a lot of work to do (and I’m doing . . . some of it). My kids were pretty reasonable. The weather has been wet and cold, so I haven’t had any desire to go and do anything interesting. Probably the only out-of-ordinary thing was when I came close to letting the F-word fly while chatting with the pastor’s wife (my kids’ teacher next year). Awesome. I did change it to “fffoolish,” but let’s get real. Oh well, I’m sure she’s heard it before. But I need to get that word out of my mental vocabulary. (I tend to whisper it to myself when someone is giving me a hard time.)

    I really don’t have anything exciting coming up this week. My boss will be out of town for the first half of the week, so that is nice. I saw a flyer for a stage production of Singin’ In the Rain next weekend, so I’ll try to find that online and see if it’s worth going next Saturday. And of course I have some work deadlines coming up. That’s really about it for now.

    So I wonder: has my life really become boring lately, or has my brain changed the way it processes things? Because I don’t think I’ve ever been this mellow for this long.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    What a dreary weekend 😦 I need to see the sun or I’m going to go crazy! My daughter had her first ‘real’ babysitting job on Saturday night watching 4 little girls and she had a blast! I say real b/c she hasn’t babysat for anyone but her brother so this was like the big times for her! She said she had fun and I talked to the mom and she said her girls had fun and can’t wait for her to babysit again. Phew! My daughter came home with a nice chunk of change too so she’s really excited 🙂

    This morning I’m just paying bills and doing laundry. How exciting! I may try and get crafty later, but we’ll see how my mood goes. I’ve seen so much cute stuff on pinterest that I want to try, but haven’t been motivated to actually do it. Maybe if the sun would come out!

    I’m with Sue. What a crappy weekend. Gee, another one! We may see the sun today but I could really give a crap! I’m so tired of the weekends that are like the one we just had. We’ve had 4 of them now with maybe one nice afternoon but that’s it. They just get so long. I did get the upstairs done (and hurt my back in the process) and now all I have to do is get the bed up there and have Paul wire the satellite receiver.

    I’m also feeling really bad that I can’t go to anyone else’s blogs and comment. I’ve done all I know how to do. I wrote to WordPress on Friday and haven’t heard back but if this keeps up, I may just stop blogging because people think I don’t care about their blogs so they don’t come here and for just the ones of us who write, it’s not worth the time we spend. I’ve ran virus scans and checked settings and what bothers me the most is it’s both of our computers and yet everything else works. I’m stumped. I can go to that “other” blog and comment so I just don’t get it. I wish I knew where to go to get help.

    I’m not doing one single damn thing today but shower and make a nice steak supper. Have a good day all.

    We had a pretty good weekend. Saturday was crappy, so we stayed in and watched movies. Have any of you seen Horrible Bosses?? Oh. My. Gosh…Jason and I watched that and laughed our butts off! Jennifer Aniston plays a sex addict, dentist b*tch!!! We haven’t watched a good (recent) comedy in a long time.

    Sunday I went to a jewelry party, and I plan on having one myself the end of May. Good quality stuff, kind of spendy but it’s real silver and they are very nice pieces!!

    I have an appointment for another CT scan in about an hour, so I gotta go for now!

    Have a good Monday, everyone!

    Well I heard back from WordPress this afternoon and this is what they said and I changed my password and it didn’t work! I have NO idea what a Gravatar account is so something is messed up. I did write back and told them I changed my password but that didn’t work.

    Hi Joy,

    We have recently made some changes to the commenting feature. You can find more information about it here:

    One of the many reasons behind this change was to provide greater control over your own identity within comments at WordPress.com. Anyone who knows your email address could have easily linked their comment to your account in a way that was indistinguishable from you leaving it, and you would have no way of knowing it or stopping them. Now comments linked to your account are always going to be from you.

    If you experienced issues when trying to comment on WordPress.com blogs, please make sure that you are logged in with the same WordPress.com or Gravatar account that is attached to the email address you are commenting with.

    Don’t hesitate to let me know if there’s anything else.

    • Nikki says:

      Well, okay that makes sense about the commenting and emails. BUT that doesn’t fix the fact that you can’t comment!

    • Joy says:

      I’ve tried everything. I’m ready to cry. I’ve emptied my browser stuff and changed my password. I don’t know what more to do. What about your icon?? Why won’t that save? I feel like moving from here. Now Kween comments after months of going to school and I can’t even comment to her. I feel like shit.

      • Nikki says:

        Well, it’s not your fault. Don’t beat yourself up! Can you email her directly? That doesn’t solve this problem, I know but…

        Where would we go? Our faithful commenters would follow us. Is it a big undertaking?

    I wonder if it would be a good idea to make a post about this here. That way at least all your usual visitors would know why you’re not commenting; and maybe someone would have an idea of how to fix the problem.

    • skl1 says:

      I mean about your WordPress posting problem.

    • Joy says:

      I’m so frustrated right now SKL that I’m at a total loss. This has been going on for weeks and weeks. I’m thinking since you had to change yours. Do you remember how long ago that was? Same time also that Nikki’s pic won’t stay.

      • Laura says:

        I don’t understand it at all… I haven’t had a single problem. I know that’s kind of like rubbing salt into a wound, but it’s also information.

        I second SKL’s idea of putting up a post. At least then people know that you’re having problems, and you’re not abandoning them.

      • Joy says:

        But people like Starla, Joan, Ellen, Slightly Ignorant, DM…..they aren’t coming anymore so it would be a moot point. When you don’t go to theirs, they don’t come to yours.
