Holed Up in My House

I have spent the day holed up in my house, not even venturing outside until about 6 tonight. I wouldn't have gone out then but it was Red Hat night.

Debbie and Susan N and I were the only ones there, but it was a nice gathering.

I wish I could say I've accomplished a lot today but I've been really laid back. I did organize a few things in the office. I still have a lot to do in here. I think it's going to become obvious that this room is too small for the amount of things I have that are "office" related.

I'm thinking about teaching another journaling class soon. We'll see if I can get that organized. It's hard to add anything else to the schedule in the first quarter.

I also have some grants that I need to write that I haven't even started on. I must, as well as the membership materials. There's so much more to do than there is time and energy to do it at the beginning of the year.

Tomorrow I must begin the work week in earnest and I know it's going to be hard to get back into the swing of things. But, I have no choice. I have a board meeting tomorrow night.

A Five Hour Lunch

I went to bed about 4 and got up about 8. I have not had the nap I thought I'd get around to taking all day. It's now almost 1. I'm on the phone with D-Link. Again. I've been on the phone with Cox. Again.

I have worked around the house today. But the highlight of the day was a very long lunch with Trish. We knew we'd been there a long time when her mom came in for dinner. It was about a five hour lunch. And every moment was delightful.

Trish is one of my favorite people on the planet. She's a steady friend and one I treasure. It's a joy to be with her.
