Another day, another post. Well, not quite.
Spent Saturday driving around Portland trying to get donations for the school auction. Got a lot of business cards and that’s it. Smelled like cigars too, though I found a place that sells balkan tobacco. That brings back memories.
Sunday-church, helping E’s friend with laundry.trying to keep the house together.
Early in today-it’s MLK day, so no traffic on MLK. Got stuff done, late bus, new driver made me late. To store, lasagna for dinner, S to bed, up late-ish. Up today, late in, problems with database. Finally got them fixed after 4 hours with 2 parameter changes-blecch.
This week is flying by. Thursday already. Not much going on-M got a new forearm cast-glow in the dark. Got a donation from a few distilleries, a winery, and a cigar place. Friday is done-getting stuff done-need to pay some bills. M’s birthday.
And another week has flown-busy, not caring so much. Don’t remember Saturday, church Sunday, tidy house, skipped gamelan-M is not feeling well. And he is worse, and E has having blurry vision. Getting a lot of work done, though. I think it’s time to call this post-a few more links and the listening list. A friend is borrowing our car this weekend.
