The Patient is Stable



I have recovered from the trials of last week.


The outside temperatures have returned to the high 80’s to low 90’s, the norm for this time of year.


Blue sky is once again asserting itself through the smoke haze.


Both my car & my fingers are operational.


And the A/C at the office in is functioning with a vengeance- it is currently 68° inside & we’re all wrapped up in sweaters; no one is complaining, for fear that Facilities Management will come “adjust” it again & send us back to the sauna.


This week, I am working feverously at my worksheets, spreadsheet, & “In” box, preparing for a few days of blessed release. Sam & I are leaving tomorrow afternoon for a road trip up to Oregon to visit the in-laws, with a side trip to Crater Lake National Park, & will return late Monday evening.


As my mother-in-law only has dial-up connection & gets a bit…*ahem*…pissy about people wanting to actually spend time on the computer (other then checking email, forwarding email, or looking up a recipe- the “accepted” online activities, IHHO), I seriously doubt I’ll be around until Tuesday next week.


Have a fabulous few days, doing nice things just for you; come on, you know you deserve it!


I leave you with this, another installment of the popular


Cat Haiku

The food in my bowl

Is old, and more to the point

Contains no tuna.

Wow, I read about last week in the previous post. Hopes for better days, or at least cooler ones. :)

My mom is even worse about the computer than your in laws. My mom has actually gotten mad that people have sent her information on email. She has stated, "Who checks their email like that anyway?" Yes, she meant, like even once a month. Funny.

Anyway, I do hope you have a great trip with Sam and enjoy yourselves!

I miss you, Meg. No tuna? How dare you?

Mrs. Meg, hopefully it will be a little cooler in Oregon for you {at the very least, it should feel pretty good at Crater Lake. What a gorgeous spot to visit.} I can't stand the heat - even when I'm inside, cool, somehow my body still knows ... and wilts. Have a fantastic time away. ;)

I sure hope that you've enjoyed your trip and that life is a little smoother sailing for you. I've been keeping your state and all those wonderful firefighters in my thoughts. Young Mr. Staggs has a friend who has been down there helping, and it has sounded difficult.

Best wishes to you, Meg.
