It started with the lady who cleans my house calling at 7 a.m. and waking me from a hard-earned sleep with a call to my cell phone. I missed her call (on the last ring naturally) and tried calling her twice without answer. So then I finally give up and go back to the bedroom and she calls me back again.
The letter N is not working on my keyboard.
So then I'm up so I decided to check in with Jac to see if he's survived the Nutty Professor who called him yesterday and got him in trouble with his boss. He's okay.
I finally got my shipment of genealogy supplies from Staples and it turns out I have ordered myself the utter wrong thing.
My scanner stopped working. My client was fussy and demanding. My email stopped working. My Tylenol stopped working.
It's been a very, very long day and I'm glad to see that it is finally winding down.

We're supposed to have one in a bit, but for now I still have access to the interwebs so I may actually be able to greet my vast reading public. I have been in a whirlwind since mom through us for a loop by needing emergency surgery followed by 6 weeks of recovery. We're a couple weeks into the recovery round and she's doing rather well. I've been out of the office like crazy, but have been working. I'm grateful that I have a job that magically at this moment is fairly conducive to remote work. I am astonished by how little I accomplish in a day during this convalescence even though I'm really just on call. I would have thought that after spending a couple weeks here I'd have all my genealogy in high-catalog mode and I'd have knit sweaters, and I'd have finally filed all last year's electric bills which it is now time to shred. But no. I haven't even caught a full episode of Keith Olbermann in ages. I did manage to hang up all my clothes today which was no small feat. And I made a charging station for all our jonx. I am trying to learn how wikis can declutter my life and also to decide if I am a recipe binder or recipe box kind of girl.
