.... and then a weekend! whoosh!
I'm getting it! It is slow, but the peces are beginning to come together and gradually make sense.
Yesterday I got the newsletter pulled together and ready for publication and mailing. It really wasn't a big job, but I had to figure out a few things about the software before I could type the pieces into it. Today I was able to make sense out of several other pieces of the tasks and began to put them into perspective that made sense to me. It's coming, it's coming!
This afternoon I was fingerprinted. No, I was arrested, but I did have to go to the police station and be finger printed for a background check. Have you ever been printed? Boy, is that an experience! They had to do three sets of prints, and by the time they were through, my hands were a holy mess! They give you a substance to remove the ink, a gritty stuff, and it took several applications to get it all off, then you still have to wash, and it took two applications of soap to get the remnants off my hands. I can't imagine that being done with an uncooperative arrestee.
Potluck tonight. It was, as always, so very good! We had 18 people gathered almost shoulder to shoulder around a conference table, and we had the..best..time! I love this group of people. It has changed, grown, morphed, and evolved over the last four years, and the group we have now just knocks my sox totally off! Ages range from mid 40s (well, occasionally younger, as tonight we had a 17 year old and a 7 year old) to 78 or 79, and what a wonderful time we have. Always! There are a handful of others that are not regulars, and most of them are good folks, too, but this group are the "full times" who come to almost every dinner, and they are awesome. Tonight I toasted "the best damn potluck group in the county," and boy it go over well. I think that is our unofficial name now!
OK, gotta get to bed. I'll be glad when I get the new polished off this job, so I can feel somewhat normal again, including being caught up on rest! I'm actually slelepng well and long enough, but the stress is taking a toll. As I said, four down, one to go and then I can have a weekend! I'm sleepin' in, fer sher!
