Fighting WordPress Updates

I have no idea why all of a sudden it has become a pain in the arse to update WordPress. Things were working fine a few months ago and now it keeps failing. Dh managed to get it to update once, but when a new update popped up yesterday it refused to work. Argh!

I ended up taking the long weekend off from writing. I plan to get back to it today. Instead of writing, we spent the weekend gathering stuff for charity and cleaning up various things. The closet looks fabulous now. 🙂 Just seemed like the kind of perfect weekend to clean things up. We still have a long way to go, but it’s getting there.

Yesterday I was having a rather depressing talk with an old. The conversation turned to an event that occurred twenty something years ago. It was a serious event, not a ‘remember when you got drunk and walked around with underwear on your head’ event. (Which btw I’ve never done. *ggg) Anyway, as my friend danced around this very serious subject, I realized I was drawing a complete and utter blank. I have vague recollections of something happening, but I’m not even sure they’re correct. This is NOT the kind of subject that you forget EVER. Yet, somehow I’ve managed to blank the whole thing out. I often joke about how oblivious I am to things happening around me, but this brought home how very true that is. Part of me is utterly horrified I could forget something so important. And part of me is just sad because I realize if I’ve forgotten something this big, what else have I forgotten. 🙁

Spammers, seriously bugger off.

Happy Fourth of July…a Day Early

Hope that everyone has a safe and fun Fourth of July.

And to the spammers, who are hitting me like I’m Macy’s during a 90% off sale, please sod off.
