#6872: I don't really understand what was going on

My wife and I had an argument in the middle of the night while we were both at least 3/4 of the way asleep. I'm not sure if I was making noise and keeping her awake, or if she was having a bout of insomnia and her complaints of being unable to sleep were what kept waking me up. Either way, the only solution to the problem seemed to be for me to go sleep on the sofa, so I started to do so, but then she started crying and begging me not to leave her.

Did I mention that we were both better than half asleep? I don't think the situation would have made sense to anyone, so I don't feel bad about not understanding what was going on. In any case, after that we slept like logs, anyway.

File this one under "silly things that happen when you're married", I guess. Heh.

Okay, if the subject is "math" but you're talking about oppression and racism, you've strayed rather far from the topic.

Someday I'd like to have a Model T. They look like fun.

Third day!

Despite getting up late and not getting out the door before 7:45, I got to work on time. It also took me 15 minutes to get home.

As a bonus, because it's cooled off outside, it was cooler in my office as well, and I didn't sweat through my clothing today.

Lunch was Culver's, but the Culver's in Monee is not as good as the one in the Fungal Vale. The diet Pepsi tasted wrong and the condiments on the burger were uneven, such that the last few bites were bland.

Had more training today, and it was dead boring stuff. It did not help that the presenter had a grating voice and was too loud to boot. But I handled some tickets and made some phone calls and did some work on some things, and now I've officially "gone live" and the site's been told about their new Deskside Support technician.

I don't know if it was before or after the email went out, but I had my first walk-in today, too.

I support three sites, meaning there will be times when I have to drive to other places to get things done, but that's not a problem. They're not too far away, and being able to get out of the office is a great way to avoid a monotonous routine.

I really like my office, especially now that it's clean. The NW corner has a couple of spare printers sitting in it--they are literally spares, so that if those specific printers break the downtime will be minimal--and there's a small pile of stuff atop them that I can't find anyplace else for. And a few empty boxes which I'm keeping in case I need to ship something. The only thing remaining on the floor now is that spare UPS battery; I have no idea what to do with it.

Thursday of next week is "Safety Day", and it looks like I'll be doing that all day. The infrastructure coordinator will be in town either next week or the following one, and we'll end up doing a whirlwind tour of the three sites I support. Whee!

And the company pays up to 8 hours of travel time, so my paycheck for last week came to 40 hours across 4 days. Whee!

The schedule is doable. It's going to take a bit for me to get used to getting up at 7, but not very much, and because I'm at work by 8, when noon hits the day is already half over, and I get home early enough that I can do things if I'm so inclined. (Like replacing the Jeep's alternator, Monday night. *sigh*)

Last night it was like freaking Houston outside, as if the weather had followed me north. Tonight it's much cooler, and drier, which is good because it's freaking October.
