Hey Lou Writes

The Grey Matters

Dobby and the Sock I Didn’t Have

Leave a comment

Today has been both a joy and a real stresser. 

Here’s how I sort of worked it out in my head…

It was warm: +50 points.

I worked a half day: neutral, cause I love my job.

I tried doing this fun technologically savvy thing on my blog, and for about four hours, I thought I either had a virus on my computer or I’d lost Hey Lou forever and ever amen. – 100 points.

I got a{n extra} glug of oil in my car from Jason at the local car shop, just because I asked about it. +25 points (and very small town-feely)

I thought I lost Dobby at the library, but he had just moved. +25 points (HP fan here)

So all in all, today evened out. It was a good day! I’ll get through this retrograde if it kills me. I’m trying to keep my communication honest and open, the technological disaster was averted (how it was fixed, I don’t even know), and my day is ending well with some quiet time where I’m feeling pretty positive about my lot in life.

Oh yeah, and day 27 for this here blog says: Give links to your most viewed blogs.

So if you’re interested, here is what people were most interested in. I’m leaving out a few, but here are the ones I thought it would be nice to share again. As always, thanks so much for reading. It means the world to me and I’m glad I didn’t lose it today… blogging has been something that has helped me write more, which is a huge goal of mine. <3

Lou (who felt kind of creeped out today. Also, thanks for bearing with me and my silly name for today’s blog. I just couldn’t come up with one. And I wasn’t wearing any socks. Not that I’d give him one anyway.)
