The Great Reorganization almost complete!

My new computer is up and running very nicely.  I've backed everything that counts up off my old system, transferred it to a 2TB expansion drive, and transferred the parts that I need to my new computer's hd, especially the documents.  Tomorrow, I'll tidy my desk, run cable ties of some sort over the plethora of cords and wires and cables, finish reloading my bookcase, and take a pic before I end up loading up my desk again.

And edit chapter 4 to post on Friday.

Saturday, we may go see youngest son, his wife and our grandchild.  Still up in the air.  But Grandma has a bunch of things to give - clothes, a toy electric drill (has a little tool bench where he can drill big plastic bolts in), a toy cell phone which will help him learn his numbers and has a cat character that will sing to him and talk, and a little book with thick pages based on the Cars movie, which I hear on good authority, he adores.  I wonder if he's reached the stage where he has to watch it over and over nieces, when they were toddlers and a little older, had to watch Labyrinth time and time again...and a star wars spinoff called "The Great Ewok Adventure." 

But that's not quite certain.  It's a 300 mile drive.

I have started chapter 29, but with me doing computer installation stuff this afternoon after spending this morning going to get bloodwork done at the Dr.'s office and then us shopping for our Christmas tree, I really didn't get very far into it.

But it's nice to have a system where I can have the tabs I like up and run other programs as well without it constantly clogging.  The laptop is still good for writing, but it just can't handle the latest demands the security software and the internet the way I like to use it stresses it.

Now the bookcase reorganization...I suspect that's going to lead me onto a massive library reorganization.  Some of these bookshelves have lost their semblance of order....

  • Writing journal 6/30

    Been a while since I wrote one of these. Well, I keep plodding away at something or other every day. My last one was dated 5/27. Since that time,…

  • Writing journal: 5/27 a (discussing 5/26)

    Yesterday was mostly a wash as far as writing went. I did do parts of 2 Inu fics, but that was about it. Got all excited about going to AnimeFest…

  • Writing journal: 5/25

    Let me state it now, and shout it to the heavens, so that stupid muse of mine gets the message: I HATE writing prose in First Person. Get it, Pink?…
