It's actually the cliffs of Mohr off the coast of Ireland. But my life feels like insanity sometimes.
Posting has become more of the exception than the rule but I have had little time, or so it seems.
I have raised almost $800,000 for my non profit since December... this in spite of being sick as three dogs in January and spending more time than I wanted in the hospital and doctor's office.
I've implemented 5 new funding streams in last 6 months that may make that total significantly more... time will tell. Secretly, I'm very hopeful.
My non profit has merged with another and we are the surviving agency. My tech work has grown overnight, as has the demand for laptops and software.
Much as I oversaw the upgrade and implementation of our main server and 40 work stations and laptops last year, this summer I will be bringing 3 additional servers online for data bases and satellite locations. Ultimately, my users will be well taken care of!
I'll be bringing one more server online this fall, in my spare time. Sshhh... don't tell.
My meds were overhauled in January and they're being looked at again. I've been adding supplements to my medication regime, but it looks as though my asthma has plateaued. It's just not improving to the level it was even two years ago. This, of course, will never do. I'm just not sure what I'm going to do about it.
In the midst of it all, my raspberries are running amuck, we just had one of our wettest springs on record, the Brute Squad continues to terrorize the squirrel population, we rebuilt our bbq grill, and TOG, K3 and I continue to rattle around the house and amuse ourselves. K2 is completing her next degree in nursing. K1 is riding herd on Ben and Baby Alice and waiting to see if their offer on a short sale is going to be accepted.
Sometimes I think about the Inked for Autism project and getting a tattoo to honor Ben and K3. Sometimes I think about not coloring my hair anymore. But thats a few months out as I'm still growing my hair out to donate on Lauren's behalf.
Overall though, this is a turning point of sorts. The beginning of the second half of the year. Football! I'm excited since we kept our season tickets. I'm mostly worried that my lungs might not be up for the season unless things really pick up this summer.
I also have an addiction to diet ginger ale. It makes my tummy happy.
