Puppy situation resolved - the canine princess now resides with one of the kids' uncles. I took her there night before last. She's happy and I'm happy. (Or at least I've got one less thing to be UNhappy about!) I honestly wouldn't have taken her to the shelter except as an absolute last resort. Besides the kids' uncle, I was looking into someone local to take her.
Things are finally more or less back to normal at work. I'm back to digging through the music and trying to identify and tag a lot of it. We've got thousands and thousands of songs and the vast majority aren't named in the right format for our software to recognize them - PLUS they don't have either the right title or the right artist information in the accompanying tags - which means the software can't differentiate and therefore plays the same artist back to back.
Not to mention that even when the information IS clearly identifed, our software can't seem to get that part right. I emailed tech support to say, "Yo, dingbats. New problem now that *I* figured out how to resolve the last one you didn't help me with." They gave me a list of things to try. Only one I wasn't already doing, I started today. So far I am not particularly impressed, but I'm willing to give it a couple of days. Maybe.
Yeah I know - whine whine. Eh, I'm entitled now and then.
I am actually in a fairly decent mood today. Was on instant messenger with a couple of friends last night and went on a male-bashing bender. I won't post here because I know that there are some actual good guys here reading and I allow that they can bash women in private - long as I don't have to read it - and I'll do them the same favor by keeping it to myself. But I was on a roll and one of said friends told me she was laughing to hard she had to step back at one point to keep from doing something embarrassing to herself. I'll leave that to your collectively evil little imaginations to figure out.
Ack - gotta get back to work, actually. Lunch hour is over and done for the moment. Back to sifting through the music and figuring out which to keep and which to tell "Buh-bye!"
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
