Yesterday's tech problems ended up getting solved after an extra hour was spent running back and forth to the computer department, experimenting with someone else's laptop vs. mine in the library, etc. I really was very frustrated, and in the end (as often happens), the problem was very simple to solve. I felt very stupid because I should have known the answer. It's something I deal with every time I travel to a conference. I had to change the DNS servers to pick up automatically.
I was home by 3:30, and Alexis had made a pan of brownies for us to take to the seminary picnic in the evening. I had a raging migraine and had waited too long to take Imitrex. I tried anyway and took a nap. Imitrex didn't work, so I got up at 5:00 and took pain meds, reminded Mom to pick up Meg to go spend the night at the vet, and got chairs ready to take to the picnic.
It turned out that the picnic was held inside the pavilion, so no chairs were needed. I had a great time but was absolutely exhausted by 9:30 PM. I slept for 11 hours straight!
This morning, Meg came home from doing her urine sample at the vet--her bloodwork is normal, so they're now looking at kidney function. Alexis and I went on a walk and talked a bit about neighborhood layout and picked up some chocolate. I've got laundry to put away and have finally gotten yesterday's email and most of the friends page gone through. I have reading to do for Monday and a writing assignment due. I'm not entirely certain that I understand the reading assignment correctly... The way it was explained to me, it sounds like 110 pages. I'm going to doublecheck it just to be sure. It's all well and good, but I'm going to feel like a real strange person if I've busted my behind reading that much and it was only 50!
On that note, away I go to read... If you find yourself off my frids list, please don't take it too personally. I'm clearing out a few here and there, mostly people I don't know well at all and have never had interactions with and communities. If I've commented to you, I'll not be deleting you because I'm following you regularly, albeit a bit behind on many days. If I don't get to your voice posts, I do apologize and will at least read your summaries and will listen when I can.
Another note to some of my friends: please check your friend of lists. A couple of people on my list are trying to friend you but can't comment to you because your journals are friends-only.
