hey world, check me out

maura @ 8:53 am

You may have noticed that we’re all redesigned here at mauraweb! today. And even updated to the most spanking-new version of WordPress, woot! I couldn’t be happier with the new look, the result of much hard work courtesy of the mauraweb! technical team. Leave a comment if you like it, too; the tech team loves praise.

With only 2 weeks left in the semester isn’t it just the perfect time for me to get sick? Of course it is! The worst thing about having a cold is the relentless body maintenance. What I want to do is sit somewhere soft and warm and do the work I need to do. What I have to do is blow my nose, get up and get more tissues, drink lots of water, get up and get more water, get up and go to the bathroom (from drinking all of that water). It makes me cranky, like Pee-Wee in the episode when he’s sick. Maybe I’d be less cranky if I had house-shaped slippers!

Thanks Betsy! Hope you’re all well — I’ve been thinking about you 3 a ton. I will email soon (the semester’s at a fever pitch).

Rock on! Our site is looking dingy these days, but I think I’ll have to wait until we actually sell the house to spruce up our virtual home.

Damn girl, I love the new look. Was this a way to avoid school work?

I wanted you to know I got over my bloggers-block and I am active again over at

Thanks PRK! Actually it wasn’t really me at all, I had more of a high-level advisement role. :)
