It's a generalization, I know. Some people have lost lots of weight and look back with satisfaction at their "before" pictures. I know I'm in better shape now than I was years ago (although disappointingly still not much thinner...I don't get that.) My independent kids are now taking care of themselves more which means I'm less busy. Life improves for many in many ways. I'm not saying it all just keeps going downhill (that would be depressing, and I'm not going to drag us down), but you get what I'm saying.
Back in March I wrote a post about needing a geek, because I had started a blog and was technically challenged. Since then I've started a business. I had no idea what technically challenged even meant, apparently. Okay, NOW I'm technically challenged. That was just a practice run. Now I'm dealing with a website and blog and Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest and...oh my, indeed. Meta-tags? Inbound links? SEO? Are you kidding me? I had no idea. I thought I wanted a geek then. Who knew?
