an oldie but goodie: yay!/boo.

i haven't done this in a while, and it seems fitting today. let's go:

i love my new job, and i'm having a blast at it. yay!
it's keeping me from being able to KIT with my online friends, and it's making me sad. boo.

i seem to have finally weaned myself off of constantly posting on thenest.com's message boards - a habit that's five-plus years old. yay!
my absence seems to be contributing to the dwindling numbers on my weekly blog stats. like, as of last week, my visit count is down to half of what it used to be. either y'all are on vacay, or i'm getting utterly boring. boo.

my iPad is awesome. i love that thing so much, and it's really come in handy a few times. yay!
updating my OS on the mac (doing it the cheapy way, remember?) has really fucked up my system. i can't get my photoshop or printers to work, and i think it's also got something to do with the fact that i can't update my iPhone software that just came out yesterday. i may have to pony up the $169 after all, which i should've just done to begin with. boo.

today is my brother's birthday. yay!
we haven't spoken since his wedding...in november. and i don't know why. yet neither of us seems to be able or willing to pick up the phone to clear the air. boo.

the teen is off for summer vacation. yay!
this also means that she's back to the week-on, week-off schedule with her dad. boo.

we're headed off for our two-week road trip extravaganza in less than a week! yay!
i am SO not ready for it. boo.

and lastly...

we're finally getting out of the thimble! we opened escrow on a house that we found last week and fell in love with, and we're closing in about a month. YAY!
packing. boo.

let's hear your yays!/boos for today. i know someone's still out there reading. i hope.


  1. I always enjoy reading this! Don't stop - you are convo fodder for my boss and I (he's the one that got me hooked on the wan:)

  2. those are great yays! specially the last one!! that is awesome.

  3. We just heard back from the house that WE love, but they said "no thanks" boo. But tonight we are going to look at new houses. yay!

    My shin splints are still kicking my butt, boo. But I haven't given up on my fitness goals. Yay!

    I love the yay/boo posts. It's cathartic.

  15. Dude you totally have tons of readers. Some of us are not so lucky. (Some of us got frustrated and needed a break, too.) :/

    Loving my job: Yay!
    Being very busy: Boo!

  16. Ive been reading your blog for little over a year...and I found you on F&B on the nest...so I totally understand needing a break....its just too negative there sometimes.
    Yay for the house!!!!

  17. I read and I love your blog! I "know" you from MM, although I'm impressed you have given up nesting.
