Yesterday T– got home in time to meet me for lunch at Schlotzky’s, then I had to go back to work and she had to go face the grim reality of unpacking the car and washing all the laundry. Poor thing.
After work I ran up to Home Depot to exchange a faceplate and pick up the last handful of pieces I needed to finish my networking project (sort of), then came home and took care of that. It took a little more than half an hour, but I got everything squared away and cleaned up most of my mess.
My internet still wasn’t working cleanly, so I took the cable modem and router out of their niche in the closet (that I’d spent the whole weekend setting up) and plugged them into the wall socket next to my desk, with a couple clever bridges to keep everything online that needed to be online. It’s a temporary fix, to keep things working until I can get a higher-quality cable connected to the main line.
I finished up just in time for dinner. T– made us steaks, and they were delicious. After dinner my sister Heather stopped by with her little ones, and we spent a couple hours talking about her trip and writing and life in general. It was fun.
When she left we put AB down to bed, and then I went into the office and foolishly started a game of Civ. I got a pretty good start, but I missed my bedtime by a couple hours. Alas.
Other than that, it’s just things and stuff.
