It was Friday When I Thought of Writing This

Thursday wasn't one of my stellar days. I wrote about the work/business part of it over in Starting a Small Business Without Losing My Mind."

The high point of the day for me was going to our son's parent-teacher conference. That was the first extended conversation I'd had with his teacher. We covered the doing-well/doing not-so-well stuff, with only a few major digressions: not bad, when I'm involved in a conversation.

Back home. I reported on what we talked about at the p-t conference, enjoyed supper, and got back to the frustrating processes that had been plaguing me for two days.

Around 10:30, I'd gotten around to my second try at making an animated gif file out of a video clip. It's simple, as long as you know what you're doing. Which I, at that point, didn't.

After a while, I figured that I'd better check the time. it was about 2 in the morning. No wonder I was feeling a bit sub-par.

This morning (I'm writing this really late Friday night), I discovered that there's a difference between now, and when I was in college the first time around. Somehow, the intervening thirty-some years haven't improved my ability to spring back from an all-nighter.

Good grief. I did it again, today.

Good night. Or, more accurately, good morning.

Very interesting blog...sort of like an online dad used to write stuff like this down in a book called a "Daily Aide." He kept this journal for years, and now that he's passed away, it keeps his ideas and memories alive. Does your #1 Daughter read this?

#1 daughter reads this from time to time, but she comes around at least weekly: and gets her info here.

Thanks for sharing about your dad's "Daily Aide."

I took a quick look at your "It Happened in Plainfield." Then, added a link to "Related Blogs and Websites" here. Thanks.
