Tired? Yeah. Another IT Day at the Festival.

I laugh when I look at my Tired icon. Why? Because it doesn't show me going up and down (and up and down) the stairs at work. More than 30 times between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. -- and who knows how many times by the end of the day? (Probably a hundred, easily.)

And it doesn't show me lifting computers and monitors and crawling under desks -- and cutting my foot on a worn plastic mat.

Yeah, the actual computer side -- the mental work -- is exhausting, too. But I'm literally physically worn out today. (All jokes of 'healthy exercise' aside.)

Ron saved the day again, going up to the store to do maintenance on their computers which crashed over the weekend. I love that guy.

And I finally managed to get all the passwords changed out and delivered to everyone, along with our new policy. Plus I did a pile of other IT-related assignments.

There wasn't a moment to spend on website work, I'm afraid, even though I have a bunch of deadlines looming. Nor did I get a start on the eBulletin that needs to go out this week (I'm waiting until Friday because I want photos from the press event Thursday afternoon.)

We had Subway sandwiches for lunch (thanks, Marilyn mistressmarilyn!!!) and some of the court snacks late in the day. Then we ate leftover spaghetti for dinner. Loads of food, in other words!

I listened to my religious mix (I love it) and even prayed several times today (which is very calming during a stressful day).

The weather was AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL today! I can't begin to express how lovely it was! We drove to have Starbucks in the morning, but walked down to pick up lunch.

I'm so ready for a nap now that I think I might tag this entry later on... I can barely sit up to type this!

More soon -- hopefully!
