Blogging this morning about shedding the burden of the FGS book, I realized that one step was to take the word count for that project off of my blog. And then one thing led to another, and within a few minutes I had a new blog design as well! I liked my old design a lot, but sometimes one needs a change, and I think this new look is very pretty. And it also gave me the opportunity to do things like update my profile and this sort of thing.
As part of that updating, I changed the description of FGS from "a wonderful high school" to a "pretty darned good high school," which reflects my slightly changed feelings about my workplace but also a determination to remember and be grateful for just how good it really is.
One other change: I've started getting spam comments on older posts, so I added one of those "type this nonsense word before you can comment" steps. Let me know if it's too annoying.
This blog spiffing-up goes hand in hand with the house spiffing-up that also needs to happen this weekend. Seriously, the place is kind of a disaster area, now that D. and I are both going through the start of school. But I'm amazingly not frustrated or self-castigating about this state of affairs; it is what it is, and I'll do a little here and there to clean things up, but I'm not worrying about it much.
Besides, I've got oodles of grading of summer work to do this weekend, so naturally I'll want to procrastinate on that by cleaning up the living room.
Ah, a new year is underway!
