Here Comes The Sun

doo doo doo doo... Here comes the sun And I say Its alright Little darling Its been a long cold lonely winter Little darling It seems like years since it's been here Here comes the sun Here comes the sun And I say Its alright ~The Beatles Todd called our remodeling contractor today, because it is less than two weeks until demolition day and it seems like we haven't picked out all our materials yet, and I was getting worried. But according to their schedule, we are not behind, so that put our minds at ease for now. For now, LOL. I'm a worrier and a planner, so I'm sure my worries will creep back again in a few more days. You know what will probably bother me a lot when the remodeling is going on? The dust. I can't imagine how we're going to keep clean. :: sigh :: I downloaded's bookmaking software "Booksmart" today and played with it. Mainly I started making a book from my blog. It's very intuitive and I took a screenshot so you can see. After you've "slurped" your blog entries and photos, the blog entry titles are on the left. All you have to do is highlight a blog entry and click on the "Add To Book" button above the entries on the left, and your blog entry becomes a page in the book on the right. The above format is the default, but you can click on various formats in the upper left-hand corner, with varying number of photos and text boxes. The pages you've made appear as thumbnails on the bottom. Overall very easy! I just hope my blog can fit within the 440-page limit at the end of the year... I'd hate to have to separate it into two books. Oh and good news for my international friends... they do ship to Europe and Asia too! Here is the list of countries they currently ship to. I've had a lot of socializing with friends the last couple of weeks. I'm laying low for a while, at least until our remodeling starts. As much as I wish it could be the case, it can't be all fun all the time. I'm the accountant/financial person of our household and I still need to do our 2008 tax returns! (And you thought I was a slug who mooched off my husband's cooking every day, ha ha!) And also pay bills. And pay my dad's bills (with his money, that is.) My mom took care of all bill-paying details when she was alive. After she passed away, I set up all my dad's bills to come electronically so I can help him pay his bills online. He travels quite a bit and I was worried that his bills wouldn't get paid. So these are the kind of "fun" stuff I do! No worries though, I have plenty of fun, and I know that! :)
