Marilyn Has a LONG Day -- More IT for Me

Marilyn went to work early. I had been planning to go in, but fell back asleep. So when she was departing, I was awake, but NOT ready to go...

I spent my morning on IT -- related to the SPAM blocker we now have. It's Barracuda (one of the most famous ones), but there are still things that need to be ironed out.

Marilyn had NUMEROUS meetings today, so she and I didn't really get a chance to talk until she was home tonight (well past 8:00 p.m.).

Sister Sue and I did speak, but only briefly. I had tried to reach her in the afternoon, but she was asleep. She had called me in the morning, but I was on the various IT phone calls...

It was a COLD and miserable day -- but didn't really rain until night time, thankfully!

At one point during the day I was feeding not only my beloved crows, but also a flock of seagulls!!! Very entertaining, by the way!

I did get a little bit of laundry done and a load of dishes. And I worked in my bedroom, which has been a disaster. But in spite of hours in there, the clothes still need a bunch more work. (sigh)

Candy came by in the evening for her casserole that I made her...

Between cleaning and IT, I read a bunch of Beatles fanfic online. Marilyn and I really want to get back to writing fanfic again. I read one story that was very emotional and actually made me cry. I guess that's the sign of an effective story! Hahaha. There's certainly a lot to read...

Marilyn is napping as I type this -- she's exhausted (little wonder!). She also came home and did the treadmill! She's amazing.

It's close to 2:00 a.m. right now...

Oh! I got an email back from TechSoup so I could finally (!!!) do what Carol had asked me about last week while we were on vacation.

Speaking of vacation, we're now officially on for another week -- which will include my birthday (Monday) and our trip to New York City.

Can't think what else. I wanted a nap earlier but Henry wouldn't let me be! Then I had a bug on me. Yuck. That woke me right up again... (sigh)

My psoriasis is acting up right now. Not unusual for cold weather, but annoying, even so.

We ate frozen burritos for dinner, which was fine.

We might just rest tomorrow. We're both tired. I guess we'll see how that goes. We do need to go out and pick up prescriptions, though.

(Edited to Add: Congratulations to Paul and Daniel on their big day!)

Sweet dreams!
