I’m in a mood today. I’m as gray and cloudy as is it outside right now.
It’s technically Day 93 of my social-distancing at home. I was at the office for two full days last week. Hoo boy! The bustle and noise of downtown Huntington just did me in. It’s quiet here on my hill — very quiet. It seems I have adapted. Just getting to Huntington set my nerves on edge — I have about a half-hour commute. As far as commutes go, it’s not bad, but when you’ve been pretty much nowhere for 80-odd days, the traffic is surprising and unsettling. So much so that here it is Sunday, my favorite day of the week, and I’m still unsettled.
I was in the office to do battle with the Never-Ending Tech Problems of June 2020. Truly, my nerves are shot. I’ve spent hours in tech support trying to sort out email problems. The good news is we are moving the whole kit ‘n caboodle to cloud-based this week. The downside of that is that I will need to spend most of this coming week in the office.
Tomorrow is Chef Boy ‘R Mine’s birthday. That should cheer me up so that this mood does not persist much longer. Truly, I can’t stand myself right now, so here’s to hoping I get over my first world problems and develop some gratitude for the life of privilege that I live.
