Random Thoughts, #whatever

I feel like I seldom blog, though when I look at my history, it appears this is now my 48th blog post (how did I get to that many?), and at least of late, it looks like I've been managing to write something about once a week. Odd, isn't it?

Getting Something Done

Doesn't it just figure? I spent about 45 minutes, yesterday, putting in Previous and Next links in all my blog entries manually, and today, Arazyr finds a paging module for Drupal, and sets it up, making that 45 minutes of work moot. I'd like to make it clear I'm not complaining about the update - it'll save me having to do that manually, for the rest of the run of my blog - I just sort of suspect that if I'd just commented that I'd like such a feature, that I'd have been waiting a couple more weeks.

Blog Improvements and Miscellany

I just spent about half an hour to 45 minutes going through my blog, and adding "Previous" and "Next" links to the top of every entry. As cool as I think Drupal is, I think the apparent lack of a more automated way to do this is a bit of a hole in the blog module. If there is a way, and I just don't know it, somebody please let me know.

I Would Like to Take This Valentine's Day to Remind People...

... that being single is not necessarily the same as being alone.

Hiccup in the Schedule

The schedule worked quite well for about 3 weeks, then hit bumpy ground, it seems. My friend had to change both the day and the time that she comes over to help with KatyBeth, and while I'm still grateful for the help, it doesn't work out quite as well for me, as before. Plus, and this is really the primary thing - KatyBeth has started getting up earlier, on a regular basis, meaning I have only naptime in which to try to get things done, and I don't get that, if I'm wiped out enough that I also need to sleep.

The Dark Side of 25 Things

In general, it has been fun to see most people's "25 Things". Even on the occasion that I see something in one of them that I particularly dislike, it has tended to be in the list of someone that I haven't actually seen in a long time, and I've been easily able to just shrug it off... until today. I read the list of a current friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, and spent several minutes afterward feeling disappointed and slightly depressed, on account of it.

25 Things

Ok, ok, I'm going to buckle, here, since I've been tagged on these, on Facebook, so many times, here they are, in no particular order.

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

Huzzah for the Schedule

I've been on my new schedule for about two weeks now, and by all appearances, it is working! Occasionally, there is a task that doesn't get done, but I usually manage to catch up on the weekends, and even if I don't, I manage to get it the next week. Even not getting up before KatyBeth (gotta get some newer pictures posted...) in the mornings for the last few days hasn't hurt things too much.

Exhausted

KatyBeth did not take a nap, today. That is, she was up from about 9:30 this morning, until about 9:00 this evening, with barely 10 minutes of sleep in between, and I dearly hope the sleeping she's doing now is for the night, rather than just a nap, because I'm pretty wiped out.

Wiser Than I Knew

My schedule that I made has 10 things on it that I'm aiming to do each week, including writing and drawing, two things that I used to do (with wildly different levels of proficiency, in my opinion) that I haven't been able to make time for for quite a while. I did not include things like washing diapers because that gets done as needed and, thank God, KatyBeth can't get in the way of that too awfully much.
