today was my last day as webmaster. i’ve spent this past week training my replacement – stressful and exhausting as much from the abrupt change in routine as it was for having to dredge up and communicate practices and methods that have become second nature to me over the course of the three years i’ve been doing it. but what i have been waiting for since thanksgiving is here – i’m out, and will start on monday training for my new role as a phone rep. i’m not a great phone person, but my hope is that this will be a lower-stress job, which will leave me more energy for things i really love, like photography and music. we shall see.
and i think i can stand up and say that i am all in favor of hillary clinton’s candidacy. i’m not a huge i-love-hillary fan, and i will reserve final judgement until well into the campaign, when we can see more of what she is made of, but i’m all in favor of giving women a shot at running things. men have had the helm for an awfully long time, and while i think on the whole, they’ve done a good job building governments and civilization and such (hey, i know they didn’t do it alone, behind every great man is a great woman), but i think it’s high time to let women drive. i’d love to have hillary rattle the cage. can’t you just see her and sam brownback in a debate?
i just replaced our old, dying cd player with a machine that holds 300 cds, like a jukebox, and i’ve been discovering old favorites as i’ve been loading them in – like beyond music by bobby mcferrin. he might be an acquired taste, but i think he’s brilliant, and i love this cd.
one last thing, if you don’t already know about it, i highly recommend igive.com for your online shopping. they have a huge selection of merchants, and you can donate a certain (small) percentage of your purchase to a worthy cause (such as the ms society). i gave my account information to my family, and asked them to do their shopping thru igive.
