Today was blah–although my mood is good.
I woke up to go to volunteer tutoring and had a TERRIBLE headache.
It has been really hot in the house so I think I got dehydrated. I’ve got the ceiling fans on now but I refuse to turn on air conditioning in February.
So, I slept for another hour, had a cup of tea and several cups of water, and started to get myself together.
Then the toilet clogged. So, I had to go next door to borrow a plunger.
Then I spent the rest of the day wrestling with some really buggy proprietary software have to use for one of my consulting projects.
Then I agreed to write an article that does not really interest me for a magazine just so they keep coming to me with more articles.
Finally, I received an e-mail from our FRG leader. Rear Detachment is going to call all of us to verify our numbers and check on us. Some of the ladies don’t have e-mails (and many who do not have e-mails are not 100% comfortable with the English language), so as a key caller I have to now find time to call all of the ones on my list ASAP so they aren’t freaked out by a call from the military while their husbands are deployed.
One of the ladies on my list seems to be having some difficulties, so I have to try to draw that out of her as subtly as possible.
On a brighter note, I’ve received some nice Valentine’s cards from friends and family and I have plans to get out of town for a little this weekend.
Also, at least having to ask for the plunger meant that I finally got around to asking my neighbor over.
Things are looking up!
