Hey there kids:
I'm gonna make this quick as I want to get back to Mom's. She doesn't have internet, but might have power back. I wouldn't know because I couldn't reach her.
Anyway, we got the announcement out today that I'm taking over Maria's practice. Miriam helped mailing about 400 letters. What a pain. I'm sure there are services for this. I'm going to find one.
I don't know what to write. I was too busy trying to efficiently stuff envelopes to give it too much thought. Sometimes those kinds of tasks are edifying too.
What I did notice is that I tend to gamify it a little. I look for what i think will be fastest: each fold done separately, how many envelopes can I moisten the gum of at once, how fast can I stamp, like that. Miriam settles on what works for her, and does that. I think I might have been twice as fast as she on some of the tasks.
And yet it was a collossal waste of my time, not that other things aren't, but some are just more fun, like futzing in the basement.
I got my dehumidifier, but it's not installed yet. I know where it will be, but I need some hardware.
But I've also got legal work to do, and it's just moving too damned slow with everything else. And there are too many items that want my attention. The computer system is wrong.
The phone system wants reprogramming: something I am so not interested in hiring an outside person for. It's just one of those RTFM (read the fine manual) type of situations. They are quite simple enough.
Maria doesn't really love tech. I at least am not scared of it.
I've been eating well, and saw a weight under 240 today; so that makes me happy. That will be 15 pounds less before I get home.
And that's what I have to share today.
I send you all my love.
Futz futz futz, were human we do things.
Happy to hear everyone’s fine, well more or less. Hope everything continues to work out.
Hugs, and fireplaces. will keep us wark in time of troubles. But virtual hugs will not, I send them nonetheless
