It is fun to see how many projects you can find for yourself to help you to procrastinate. I spent a few hours figuring out the most efficient way to document my books in an Excel spreadsheet. Then I decided to buy and old iMac and find the latest versions of software for it. It has been fun. Now I need to get some real work done.
Soon I am going to have my “resume” or personal website up on Wordpress with my writing samples and contact information.
Don’t you hate it when you encounter places with too many little stairs? The same thing could have been done with two stairs but why do that when you can use 4 instead.
I have not posted in some time!! I have been so busy lately with so much to do. I have been steadily reading some of the books that have built up in my iBooks library. It is so easy to pick up the free books and never read them. I am about halfway through “Soulkeepers,” which is an interesting book, but surprisingly long.
Why does this make me want to know what the book is about? Really bad.
I guess flying, diarrheal babies are just interesting.
The key to being sneaky is to watch…and wait.

Wal-Mart has millions of customers visiting its stores each week. Some of these shoppers could tell the retailer where they live and sign up to drop off packages for online customers who live on their route back home, Anderson explained.
Wal-Mart would offer a discount on the customers’ shopping bill, effectively covering the cost of their gas in return for the delivery of packages, he added.
If they can clear the legal hurdles, this could be a huge coup in their efforts against Amazon.
I actually wouldn’t mind doing this for some of my neighbors without the discount. It is kind of clever because people would be discounted more than it costs to stop somewhere on their route home.
