Sunday night... where did the weekend go?
I didn't go back and finish the computer work. It took me something like five hours to get all of the laundry done this time - well more than twice as long as normal. I haven't done that much laundry since all of my kids were little and living at home! But I had to do up all of the bedding, including two quilts, four sets of sheets, etc. And I hadn't done laundry for two weeks, thanks to the combination of work demands and the bad luck of dealing with whatever virus/bug held me for ransom for the better part of a week.
After the marathon laundry run, I tried calling about finishing up the computers, but got no answer. I guess that means I'll have to do the rest after 5 one night this week. I am hoping I get Thanksgiving Day off. We used to get a four-day weekend for Thanksgiving, but I can't see that happening this year, all things considered. If I'm lucky I'll get to work from home Friday and have Thursday off. I hope I have Thursday off, because I'm supposed to bring at least three dishes to the forty-person Thanksgiving dinner at my ex in-laws' house!
Not that I have the foggiest clue when I'll get the chance to actually make any of this stuff. I know for a fact that I have to work late tomorrow night. I'll have to do the rest of the computer stuff for my moonlighting on either Tuesday or Wednesday, and do the studio maintenance on whichever of the two I don't do the OTHER person's computer stuff.
I thought it would be a nice, simple, two hour job. But noooo...
Remind me not to agree to come help fix random computers, especially since I don't know how much money I'm going to end up getting out of this. I was originally only going to do it as a favor to the lady, and she offered to pay me. I am not stupid, I didn't refuse payment.
But I did say I didn't want to be paid until I am done. Oh well. Another incentive to finish it the heck up and get on with it!
This is going to be a short entry because I'm going to be lazy tonight and go watch a movie before I have to return it!
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
