September 3, 2018: Labor Day

It is Labor Day, here in the US.  So most of our customers are out today, which makes for a nice, relaxing, and quiet day to work.  This is nice, I like my days when I can really focus on being productive, rather than spending my day running from one customer ask to another, which isn’t efficient.  I don’t mind doing the tasks, but the time spent being interrupted and always having to watch and see what people need is frustrating.

I slept in until ten this morning, having gotten to bed so late last night.  It was enough sleep, I suppose.  I did not feel too tired all day.

Customers ended up being all but silent.  So I was able to spend basically the entire day working on highly productive, back end work that really needed to be done, but is never important enough to get my focus.

Paul has a medical procedure tomorrow, so is on basically no food for him today.  He is allowed to have candy, though, but we don’t have any in the house.  So he cooked up maple sugar candy this afternoon.

While doing loads and loads of server tasks, I was able to get several more weeks of SGL updates written today, too.

The girls did school today.  Their cousins may or may not have been in school, we don’t know, but they were definitely busy and not trying to play video games today, so it worked out that we were able to get a school day in even with it being a “holiday”.

For dinner this evening, Dominica made the delicious Mexican stew, again.  I watched a few episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. I am finally on to season six and stuff is really getting good by this point in the show.

Luciana really wanted more Harry Potter tonight, so I got the girls to bed a little early and read two more chapters, three and four, of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to them in bed.  The Harry Potter books will likely be the first books (in fact, the first eight books) that I will ever have read through completely three times.  And that’s three times in print, not including the one or two times via books on CD which is how I read the later books the first time around!
