I've been a horrible, HORRIBLE LJ friend...  
...I'm SO sorry to everyone for not being around recently!! :( This past week was ridiculous - with work sending me on an EARLY (why do I always want to spell it "earley?") ;) morning flight to Maui for a meeting, and my night school class every Tuesday and Thursday nights, not to mention all the web work that has recently come in that I've been working on, plus the constant care and monitoring that Sydney dog needs daily - well, let me just say that sleep has been VERY hard to come by this week. I've tried my best to go back and read all of your entries that I missed, but if I've missed something important, please do let me know - my apologies for being so out of touch!! :(

Sydney news...

Sydney's still hanging in there! :) She walks (albeit unsteadily) around our house, walks to her little pad thingies to pee, and generally seems to have maintained her wonderful outlook on life. :) Her personality is very much the same as it was before her illness - she's still very stubborn, will walk to the kitchen and tackle the scary, slippery tile if she smells something delicious cooking in the kitchen, and she'll still get upset and turn away from any camera that's placed in front of her. :)

She's lost A LOT of weight and barely resembles the Sydney we used to have to put on diet food, but she's still VERY much our lovable doggie and we're thankful for all the extra time that we've been able to spend with her.

Web stuff...

This weekend was spent completing a re-design of Bets' site. I'd lost the key font that I'd used to create her titles in the former design when my laptop was stolen in the robbery. For months I looked through all the font sites, all my font CDs, I even went to whatthefont.com to see if I could find it, but no luck. :( Instead of re-creating all my titles, I decided to completely re-design the site - it's been a while since I've done it for Bets and she really deserved a new design! :)

If you want to see it in its new format, I've uploaded it (finally) yesterday!

This weekend...

Today Mark & I might head out for a bit. My BIG boss wants the two managers to go out and invest in Franklin planners to keep ourselves organized. It's nice that he's allowing us to use our corporate cards to obtain them and lord knows anything that can help me get more organized is a blessing. ;)

After my Franklin planner shopping, I wanted to take Mark to Sweet Basil, a yummy Thai restaurant that one of my reps got me hooked on this past week. Mark is kind of hot and cold about Thai food and so is my rep's boyfriend... Is liking Thai food just a female thing?

Hope you've all been well. I plan to get a better hold of my life and be here more often (promises, promises...) ;) Thank you to everyone who has been so patient with me and who has sent me messages asking if we were okay. Love you all! I'm off to work on another site (the children's theatre site that I've been working on recently) - have a great Sunday everyone!! HUGS!

I LOVE my Franklin planner. Unfortunately, I'm in a job right now that doesn't really necessitate using it. But, I still use it to keep track of personal things here and there.

Glad to hear Sydney is still being her Sydney self. :)

I got to spend the weekend with my fuzzypup. Have missed her so much. 3 more days until I get my apartment. Yay!

I love paper planners! Technology is great and PDAs are wonderful, but the traditional planner is still my favorite - especially when it comes to organizing my crazy work life!

Sydney has been much more herself these past few days - which we love! It's so hard to imagine that it was a month ago that we were away and she was so sick... :(

YAY for your apartment date nearing!! :D

Glad you're doing okay, and glad you're back!

It seems as though you've been very busy. I'm glad you checked in here and updated us on how you, Mark, and Sydney have been. Try to take it easy this coming week. *HUGS*

Thanks SO MUCH for your MySpace message, Carrie! Things with work, school, and my web business have been keeping me really busy - but I promise to be better about LJ. :) Hope you've been well! Big HUGS to you!!

It sounds like that you was very busy. I'm happy to see you, Sheri! Thanks for dropping by here!

(why do I always want to spell it "earley?") ;)

If I'm honest, this made me giggle. :)

I'm glad to hear the Sydney news, that she still has her Sydney personality.

If you and Mark did head out, I hope you had a nice time. And I too did not know what to do with Franklin planner. But now I know, Google was helpful. :)

Big hugs and much love to all of you!

Heehee! It's a sad, sad thing that I can't spell "early" the normal way anymore! ;)

Sydney is still VERY much herself! The other day when I came home, I heard a loud THUD and I realized that Sydney had squeezed herself between the barricade that we'd put up and was standing on the tile in the kitchen staring up at me and wagging her tail. :) What a determined doggie!! :)

Big HUGS and much love to you!!

Why post?
You're apologizing for failure to report anything less fascinating than shopping for a planner?

Now, your LAST post was gripping! I've been on tenterhooks pondering the crypticity of it all -- particularly seeking an interpretation of "the day after" and it's leading to "seeing the true nature of some people." I've got it! You had a mammogram!

Re: Why post?
Haha!! I can always count on you for a smile!! :)

And RE: the cryptic post, I know you know what and who I'm talking about... let's just leave it at that. ;)

Miss you! HUGS!

She really is!! In fact, when we asked the vet how much longer she thought Sydney had, she told us, "To be quite honest, I didn't think that she'd live as long as she has!" What an amazing dog!!

I LOVE Thai food!! The veggie spicy eggplant is VERY delicious as well as the green papaya salad!! YUM!! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! :D
