Multitasking

I had a comment on an entry about Andy and Barney the other day that was interesting. I wrote to Dr. Will about it (after all, the person commenting was calling his words a "load of crap"), and I had a nice email from him this morning! Among other things, Dr. Will wrote, "I can assure you that I am able to keep up with media and pop culture and also have a productive life. Perhaps they are unable to multitask." Thanks, Dr. Will! I just love that guy.

Christmas cards are done! Yahooo! Well, except for one, to Ken's brother in San Diego. Ken will get Mike a gift card this weekend, then we'll mail them both in one card early next week. We didn't send out quite as many as we did last year--I'm sad to say that I've had a few relatives die this year. I'd say we're sending out about 75. I always try to start on them early, at least getting the return labels on them, or signatures done on some, because doing that many all at once just isn't an option!

One of the things on my list for today is archiving my journal. I've recently started a Google reader feed, which puts all of my entries together, but I really should go back and save the older stuff, comments and all. I've read too many things about people losing all of their entries due to a server problem, and they all recommend backing it up. Also, if you decide to move to another server, you'll have all of your old entries. I think I'm procrastinating on this a bit, because I've been writing for over a year now, and it's a daunting task. I should at least get started, though. <sigh>

I'm going to try a new recipe for dinner tonight: Mozzarella Chicken Rollups. Cheese? Good. Chicken breasts? Good. Cheese stuffed inside chicken breasts? VERY good. It's topped with marinara sauce and...more cheese. I really don't know how it will taste, but it sure sounded yummy. Ken thought so, too, so I'll give it a try. Besides, you have to flatten the chicken breasts, and I always have fun whenever I have to get out my meat mallet and beat the hell out of whatever meat I'm using.

Later

<whimper> Please don't make me archive anymore!

Good God. I've managed to make it through Jan. 1, 2007. This means that I have an entire year to go, and I found that as I got going with my blog, I started writing more. It's incredibly tedious to copy and paste all of this. But at least I got started on it, and now that I see how tedious it is, I'll try and do a little bit every day. At least I managed to not attempt to read all of the entries and comments--just skimmed them. Thank God I don't have ADD...

Hey, look! A quarter! (Thanks, Sean Morey, for "The ADD Song!")

I've often thought about my archives and I wasn't aware of an alternate plan to back them up. Although a lot of it is witless meanderings, like a blind squirrel, I find an acorn now and then. If there's a site that explains how to do it, I'd appreciate an email (like you, I abhor the thought, but...).
