am I too optimistic, or lighthearted? I think more the latter - hm.

  • hot out today - feels like summer, certainly.
  • I think I need to mow tomorrow.
  • The snails seem to like Aurora's 3 gold fish & the fish seem to like the snails: yay! Plus, they're blissfully making the tank less & less green by the day, excellent.
  • worked today, so I didn't get much personal stuff done, but that's cool; it's nearly the weekend.
  • when I play with these interactive memes I think "this is kinda fun in a distracting & easy way - but I could do better ; thus, I think about making a meme, but then I don't - because I neither have the time to actually make one, nor am I that committed to the cause: it's more of a sidethought. ah well; they're still rather fun & have great potential.
  • I got some more memory for my digital camera for just $29.95, because angelo needed to borrow my memory to use a friend's Digital SLR camera on his trip: well, the new memory is not backwards compatible (yeah - new released like 6 months ago) I guess the old stuff just sold out fast & isn't being made anymore? I can try to download a patch the guy said to make the memory work - hopefully that'll fix it.
  • ah, memory patch download: another project, just what I needed (that's sarcasm in case it wasn't obvious) *sigh* I want more fun projects then this! darnit. heh.
  • Ok, well, I'll either work on my huge stack of personal projects, or I'll go to sleep - my bet is on the former, even though I only slept 4 hours last night (again).
    my projects include:
  • kids scrapbooking of collected trip stuff - from Oregon trip they took with me in April this year
  • mail packages to: my mom, my friend Sierra (his bday is June 29), & my big bro & his family
  • download Olympus memory patch, if avail. for my camera
  • maybe a playdate with novamx3's kids on Sat. or Sun. afternoon
  • do laundry
  • mow
  • garden care (planting/weeding/watering it seems - no sig. rain in weather)
  • sew Aurora a dress out of this pink & gold Oriental-style brocade she picked out
  • kids have a Birthday BBQ Saturday at 4pm w/the kids across the street
  • wrap the gift for this BBQ
  • Hopefully! have a few people over Saturday night after 7ish for gaming/or watching a movie/hanging out/donno - something.

  • If you think my weakness is I'm "lighthearted" I get this one:

    Your Theme Song is Born to Be Wild by Steppenwolf

    "I like smoke and lightning
    Heavy metal thunder
    Racin' with the wind
    And the feelin' that I'm under"

    A total independent spirit, you can't be held down or fenced in.
    You crave the feeling of wind on your face... and totally freedom.

    But if you think my weakness is being "optimistic", I get this one:

    Your Theme Song is Beautiful Day by U2

    "Sky falls, you feel like
    It's a beautiful day
    Don't let it get away"

    You see the beauty in life, especially in ordinary everyday moments.
    And if you're feeling down, even that seems a little beautiful too.
