Man, I need to make like a "Time Diary" so I can figure out where it all goes.
I got up at 7:30 this morning for no reason other than to have more time during the day. It's ten after 8 now and I just sat down at the ol' computer with my coffee.
Wait, old computer nothing. I totes have a new computer now! It's super awesome. Josh was building us a new computer from the ground up sort of as a side project but bumped it up so he could trade a computer for paying rent for a couple of months. lol.
But, it's pretty bitchin. I've definitely never had this much space before, and it's a dual moniter setup, which I didn't realize I wanted until I had. I upgraded to Win7. My only beef with it so far is opening fucking animated gifs. I have to find something other than IE to use for that. I don't ever want Internet Explorer open on my computer - EVER. There are three other browsers on this thing that anybody can do whatever they want with, but do not fucking open IE on my computer. It's a disease and it will infect you. lol.
So, if anyone has a handy gif viewer...that'd be cool.
Anyway the first half hour of my day always revolves around the bathroom, the animals, and the coffeemaker. Me in bathroom, cats want food, dog wants out, then wants food, I start coffee, probably bathroom again (lawl), fix my coffee and figure out what I'm doing next. Usually I clean the kitchen a little in the morning too because of whatever's fallen into the area when I was in bed.
A lot of my time probably disappears on the porch, just like when we lived with mom. Those big southern porches are a time triangle, I TELL YA WUT. I go out there to smoke and it only feels like 10 minutes or so, but it's been a half an hour or more.
There's always just so much shit I feel like I need to do. I have to keep up with the house, but that's usually not too big of a deal. It stays clean, though not spotless, but if anyone's expecting that they can eat my ass :P There's so much shit that I want to do, I feel like that's the stuff I can't find time for. It doesn't seem like it should be hard to find 20 minutes to write on LJ or time to spruce up some old jeans to capris for the summer (I'm doing this today dammmit!!). I need to make some curtains. I have an epic quest that I desperately want to find time to get in to. I have a TON of free prints on Snapfish, which I've never used but I figure if it's (mostly) free, I can try it. There's so fucking many pictures I have that I would so love to have actual tangible prints of. Doug's mom left their family photo albums here and they're so awesome and retro and I love them. All my family pics are still at mom's in boxes in her closet. I felt like they were safer there. If I could set aside time to deal with the hundreds of those pictures - get them safely into albums and maybe distribute some to other family members, not to mention the THOUSANDS of digital pictures I have. I have digital pics going back to like...2006. And I'm the kind of photographer that quickly snaps 5-6 of the same picture, because one of those is probably gonna be really good. I would LOVE to be able to go through all those and delete the various blurry pet pictures and random pictures of the cars or backyard or whatever. Keep good ones, delete...probably 2/3 of what I have lol. I think there's 18G of digital pics on this computer now.
But anyway since I killed 15 minutes on here too, I'll mosey on my merry way.
I miss you LJ.

I need more icons and a better mood theme.
