It has been a strange week. My cold has reasserted itself. Yes, for the 3rd time in a month. The second time was just more of a bother, but this 3rd time has come with hacking and muscle aches. I think I'm about done with this round. Hopefully it will be the end. Time for more nutritious living and more water and more exercise--the things which I hope keep the diseases at bay.
Let me note some other highlights and low points of the week.
--The printer that has been most reliable ran out of ink. But that ended up being a good thing. We discovered that the other printer, the one that is supposed to be wireless but has only been working the old-fashioned (wired) way since we moved, can communicate with the laptops wirelessly. I'm not sure what's going on with the desktop computer, but it's quickly becoming a huge storage unit, a back-up drive that's not portable or small.
--I didn't have to do anything to let my new laptop know of the existence of the wireless printer. It just introduced itself.
--Oh, to be a laptop, with no fears that one will be rejected, no knowledge of better machines, no anxiety about inabilities.
--I have this vision of my laptop as a puppy of sorts.
--While I'm thinking of technology, let me remember a moment from yesterday at the office. I had about 20 PDF files open. A line drifted through my brain: "All your PDFs cannot save you now." I hope it's just a line and not a premonition.
--I've had a great week of poetry writing. May it be a foretaste of the feast to come.
--The holiday lights are slowly disappearing from the neighborhoods. I'm trying not to be sad about that.
--It feels strange getting back to work. It's time to start thinking about my online classes too. My work brain feels creaky.
--Yes, it's time for a limbering up of all sorts.
--Today at spin class, we do "Jump Fest 2014." We'll do 2014 jumps before it's all over. I don't mind the jumping; the spin class move I hate the most is sprinting. No, I could jump all day long; it's the counting of the jumps that drives me crazy.
--May 2014 be a limbering of all sorts!
