Busy again

I have a very long to do list and very little energy.

On the good side:

Back MUCH better with lots of walking now that I’m back at work, plus I doubled up on the glucosamine and chondroitin.  The effect is so fast… less than two days and the amount of joint pain I’m experiencing dropped.  Also doubled up on acidophilus, and that has been great too.

People are still noticing that I’m back at work and being very happy to see me.  Like, Genuinely Happy to see me.

All the appropriate software for work is now up and running (ie I have no excuse not to really buckle down).

I was supposed to go swimming last night.  I went soaking instead, and it felt really good.

Also watched the Simpsons parody of 24, which was incredibly good… sometimes you forget it’s a cartoon.  Wherever they were, the writers for that show are back.

Margot jumped up on the bed demanding to be petted.  I love it when she does that and she doesn’t do it very often.

Gizmo is putting on weight, super feisty about being kept out of people food, and he LOVES the cat sized armchair I bought him.  (I should say I bought it for any cat who would sit in it, but am particularly pleased that the Gizzer went for it.)

Things proceed apace for the memorial service for Granny, which is now next week.

Minus side:

Very much work and no compere until the middle of March at the earliest.  It’s not like I’m by myself, but there is a very large eightball, and I am behind it.  Although everybody said I’d hate Lotus Notes 8 I’m not really having problems with it except that it’s a trifle slow.

My folks are very slammed on both sides by the emotional air pockets of grief and the witlessness of bankers, lawyers, etc.  Fortunately everybody in the family is being loving and supportive and there is ABSOLUTELY no nonsense about who gets what.  It’s all very steady and rational and that’s some comfort.

Jeff’s inheritance and mine is 21 banker boxes in size plus any furniture we can haul away plus any of her crafts.  Rejigging of vehicles for memorial service may happen; it all has to be out in two weeks.  I’m feeling a trifle squoze.

I forgot to take a library book back.
