Music: Linkin Park – “Numb”
I wasn’t a happy camper yesterday after work. It shouldn’t get to me as it does, but I actually care about doing the right thing. I dislike folks getting in the way because they’re worried about not reaching certain metrics in a certain period of time. If they’d just trust us and get out of our way, we can get things done. Drives me nuts.
Anyway, I pretty much got home when I expected. Thankfully my wife had a hot dinner waiting when I got home. Having a hot meal and being able to spend some time together helps. Afterward, I had to help my son with his poetry project. Getting him to write a poem was hard. He chose the form and topic, but his first attempt was essentially a list of synonyms for that theme. It took a bit of time to get him to think larger than that. But he finished his poem, thankfully. Given that we were in the cinquain format, I decided to write my own cinquain.
Regarding their approach,
Because I care about my job,
Today hasn’t been much better. I’m in a different building today. The room for our lockdown didn’t have a phone, which we needed for folks who couldn’t attend in person. Had to get that fixed before we could get started. Grabbed lunch downstairs and played musical chairs for our afternoon breakout sessions. Had another late meeting following the lockdown, which made me just as happy as the one the day before.
It’s my grandmother’s birthday, so I had to call her on the way home. We finally figured out when we’d go down to see her next. I know she’s ready for us to visit. My son has already adopted my computer. He’s been installing all the software he needs on it. So far, he seems to like it, which is good. Hopefully, we can send his off to get repaired soon.
