Afternoon update

Fedex sent us juggling balls: green, purple & orange. Maybe I'll learn to juggle.

roina_arwen suggested that Tigger's ear might have stopped hurting because the eardrum perforated. I don't remember that making pain go away, but I was able to get an "after" school appointment at 3:20, so I'm going to have the doctor take a look at him.

I talked to Opman. I'm starting training on Monday at 8:30, and then will move to second shift (5-11) after that. It's been so long since I've worked, that I've no idea what to expect of myself, when it comes to working in an office for a full shift. I imagine it'll be diverting, at least at first. Hmm. Not in my disorganized house that cries out from too many directions, so that'll be like vacation. And, it'll pay. Perhaps enough that we can resurrect the idea of replacing my car. At least, after Flar gets us out from behind on other bills. It won't pay enough to budge that pile.

I haven't made much progress on my list. I finished the graphics work for the PWP, and edited the invitaton page, but I haven't put it up yet, because I want to refer to last year's invitation, and the RSVP form works a different way, and it still seems to be running from the old invitation. I guess that's just procrastination, since I could just change the references in the old invitation to a "no longer here" RSVP page. Ah well, later this afternoon. I've let the PWP swallow enough of today as it is.

The kitchen looks better. I sorted out the mess on my side of the table, and could be working on bills, or could wash dishes to finish off the kitchen. I haven't checked on the old laundry yet. For that matter, while I've dressed, I'm still wearing my glasses, and that always makes me feel somewhat less productive.

I've got a little over an hour in which to do something before I leave to pick up the boys at school. I think dishes win.

The list has all the extra stuff I want to remember this week piled onto today, but that will drift off quickly enough:

Evening break

It was a challenge, but I finally got Coach's picture printed. I'm not sure whether all that I did was needed, but I: turned it into a JPEG (instead of printing directly from Canvas), doubled the amount of virtual memory on the Mac, tripled the memory allocated to Picture Viewer, and printed it in Foreground instead of Background.

And it came out beautifully, at 8x10. (It shows its resolution a bit, at that size, but not so much as to require shrinking it.)

I took Tigger to the doctor. His tympanic membrane is the color of my shirt today. Bright red, that is. Dr. prescribed Ceclor and said it was Otitis Media (matching Flar's diagnosis, fwiw). Peeps were only a quarter at CVS, so I succumbed.

I'm calling Wolf tonight, but before then, we're playing Mystery House Clue for family time, and then I'll read Oz if there's time.
