I'm going to forget I know this for now. If the neighbors bitch, then I'll just close the door.
I spent a good part of this afternoon fixing up an email template for my brother. He (or rather is really amazingly industrious worker) sent out an email to customers with a graphic that was 800kb - way way way too heavy. And, it wasn't particularly wonderful either. So I made a way better new one (30kb). My brother gave me the credentials to their emailer and I used the ever so handy template builder to wrap the rest of it around and make it easy peasy for him to use next time.
I'm not a graphic designer but I can cut and paste and, given enough time, figure out how to fix what I don't like. Plus, it's fun and different and my brother and his crew are so very appreciative.
Also the 3rd load of laundry is finishing up now.
Yesterday my brother and I both registered for CES in January. I bought our plane tickets. Now, I'm just waiting for the hotel deals to hit the CES website. Once I get that booked, then we'll be set and I can just sit back and anticipate.
I foot the bill for the both of us for all of it. I love that I can do it and that he's willing and gracious about it. I think we both enjoy every single bit of it. It's my annual vacation, Christmas, trip, treat and splurge. Since I'm paying, I don't have to worry whether or not he can afford the places I want to eat and things I want to do. I start saving up for next year as soon as I get home in January so that I pretty much have it all paid for by the time it's over which is a fun way to do it.
And he goes down and brings back coffee every morning before I even wake up. It's heaven.
Usually we have gone the day before it starts, stayed 2 days and left the following. This year, the return flight availability was just ugly. So we are staying an extra day. We'll leave for LV on Monday morning and come back Friday morning. I think it will be better to not be so rushed. We can take our time and enjoy.
And I am for sure taking 2 pairs of shoes this year.
