What a difference a day makes.... - Blather. Rants. Repeat.
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
What a difference a day makes....
This time last night, I was pretty down. Down for the count with this bug, down about work things that didn't go as expected during the day, down given that none of the nibbles on the old car seemed to be biting, especially down because my go-to work computer was repeatedly shutting off without warning and almost leaving me without necessary work data.

Today?  Better.

Health: still buggy, but much less so. Enough so that I managed to get to and stay in the office and/or court for almost the entire workday. Court went well, but it was on returning that the pleasant surprises began.

Finances: improved. Something I've been waiting on for weeks came through, a new client couple needs to act and seems intent on doing so, and another prospective client finally took a positive step toward some new business.

This computer: it's ba-a-a-a-ack:)  I contacted my friend and local guru for such things, fully expecting she might have to beg out on account of health issues in her family, but she got back and said she could look at it tonight. She also mentioned that Windows updates sometimes cause power issues.  So with nothing else to do until 5, I quietly plugged Tobor into a corner outlet, got him to start, and just left him for several hours. Since then, he's been fine- at first off AC power (the battery is still holding charge just fine), and on it since I've been home.  I'll still get it checked out, but meanwhile it's backing up daily and religiously ::goes, backs up daily and religiously::  ::curses as the Whatever Thing does it again and shuts itself off seconds before backing up::  ::recovers nicely, finishes the religious backup, and has Tobor back on just battery power::

The old car: has a date tomorrow morning. Somebody called twice and sounded nice and very interested.  I will bring it to Rochester (after first bringing some forgotten stuff out to the kids) and if it sells, I have a ride halfway home and Eleanor will meet me there for the drive the rest of the way.

But the biggest potential development of the day involved the continuing storrrr-eeee of the property dispute next door.  Yesterday, Eleanor took a new angle on it: she realized their outdoor playpen was likely infringing on the local electric company's power pole, and when she called it in, she got a very sympathetic ear.  By late today, that ear must've turned into mouth, because I got a call on the tenants' behalf from an attorney I know and like, asking, essentially, what can we do to fix this?

Eleanor's writing an answer to that.  I won't presume to write it down until I've seen it.  Just getting the contact, and the glimmer of a fair resolution, makes me happy:)

heres hoping the car sells, and you are able to get the neighbors sorted out.
