This is a Muppet news flash

Well, I finally caved after 5 days and switched the cats back to Eukanuba.  They are very grateful.  Monster Kitty purred with joy: nom nom purrrrr nom nom nom purrrrr...  He makes me laugh.

I got a new prescription for glasses right before the 4th of July holiday but I haven't filled it yet.  I'm having trouble choosing my new frames.  Twoofadozen wants me to go with "funky frames".  I don't know how funky she thinks I am.  I've tried a few of them on.  I think I'm leaning towards a scholarly look.  I don't know.  There are a lot of cute options, I just can't commit.  I'm afraid I won't like them two months in, afraid I might catch myself in a peripheral reflection and wonder "who's that dork?" then realize it's ME.  I'm going in again tomorrow.  Ugh.  I really need to make a decision because my prescription has changed by a lot and I can barely read street signs these days.

My job has been a lot better lately.  I am working less and accomplishing more.  I wrote my first macro in Excel yesterday and I was SO impressed with myself.  Ha!  I never knew I had it in me.  I need to do a lot more of that so I can put it on my resume.  Speaking of resumes, I got an email last week through LinkedIn from a recruiter who asked if I was interested in a job in Florida.  I thought about it for a day or two and decided, hell yeah I'm interested!  So I responded through LinkedIn.  We'll see if that goes anywhere.  I'm only marginally qualified but they may have something else I could do.

There isn't much else to say.  It's hot and muggy in Kansas.  My house needs more insulation.  I might try to roll some out in the attic this weekend.  Hopefully there won't be too many spiders up there! :/

So much to say....
a)The cats know who's really in charge now!
2)Scholarly is good. Funky can be bad if you feel funny and catch that odd glimpse in a mirror and freak out. Maybe Sarah Palin's frames?
Thirdly) Florida is hot and muggy too. BUT, there's the beach and food and culture and cruises and DisneyWorld.
