I'm making headway in the piles of stuff to assimilate, sort and ditch, so that's productive. I helped Matthew find the diagram he needed. It's sunny out and FINALLY not windy for a bit. Cranes are flying over today and making their happy war... Read more
Stuff I learned from yesterday
Tuesday, October 13, 2020
Yesterday, I had a horrid time focusing on my job. I made it through but it was draining. I wasn't very hungry and, instead of eating anyway, which I've done a lot, and, instead of drinking beer out of habit, both things being things I've done... Read more
