The results of my recent plastic surgery

I didn't go under the knife, but we did get out the scissors.

That's all the credit cards except one Visa. That one will go soon. I was going to melt them, too, much like you would burn a vampire's body after staking him in the heart. However, when they started to melt they stank and I wasn't sure if they were toxic fumes, so we stopped. Anyone know if it's safe to nuke credit card pieces?

Are we there yet?

No, not yet. Still waiting on third parties to get us the info we need to make the switch. Don't get me started; I have six months of frustration simmering just below the surface, and it won't take much for a major eruption.

There isn't much else going on here. The girls are adjusting to their new brother, and we all lived through the first semester of Alex's Freshman year. Hopefully the second will be easier.

It's early yet, but I think I'm going to bed. Eric is playing World Of Warcraft behind me with the speakers on. They use Teamspeak so they can talk while they play. I haven't heard so much swearing since we partied at the Airman's Club, WAY back in the day. Tonight constant swearing is one thing I can't manage.

More updates soon.

Almost there...

Some of you know that last summer, my host for Dragonsroost went out of business. Eric said it was no big deal; we had an old computer. We'd just replace the hard drive, get some software, and we'd be back in business.

I am virtually computer illerate. I thought it would be that easy.


The computer is rebuilt. Software is installed. The pages have been rebuilt and improved. I've established a writing log to serve as a record of my work and as a source of accountability. Now I'm just waiting on Jatol to set up my account. They host HollyLisle.com and Forward Motion; I don't think they're going anywhere anytime soon.

I'm hoping against hope at this point that by this time tomorrow I'll have everything back on line. I'm almost afraid to hope; I have, oh, about two dozen copies of The Dragons Lady floating around the Middle East with a URL on them that has been down for six months. That, by itself, is a cause for concern; never mind the fact that I paid for a domain I haven't been able to use. At this point I'm soliciting prayers and good vibes. I'm ready to get down to business.
