Mental Health Half-Days - Blather. Rants. Repeat.

Mental Health Half-Days
I wound up working about half of the Not This President's Day holiday yesterday- the second and fourth quarters, essentially.  After everything we did Sunday, neither of us had to be in early, and I got in around 11, working for a couple of hours, going home for lunch and returning after everyone had left for a final hour or so.  It was blessedly quiet and relatively productive, but I'd made a 4 p.m. appointment that kept me close to 5.

Today, likewise. I was up and out relatively early, but that was for a workout, and I got into my office in Buffalo only briefly after working from home for the rest of the morning.  A neighbor behind us is having his roof replaced, which in turn is making the Idiot's dog crazy, so I finally bailed and finished the stuff I needed to do from my desk.  Then it was off to Rochester for an appointment and a filing before getting into that office pretty much after everybody left.

I'm now at the kids'- where they're having carpet installed in the apartment hallways and, thus, more bangbang noise, but no crazy dog. Emily and I tried the first episode of The OA, which was pitched as "better than Stranger Things" but really isn't. It's stranger, I'd say, but it lacks the sweetness brought by ST's younger cast and the pop culture homages that kept it from getting too serious.  I may try some more- at least finishing the pilot where it left off- but it's not one for binge-watching.  Then we finished with a Brooklyn Nine Nine, a show Emily's been trying to get me into.  It's okay, but I was spoiled by the likes of Barney Miller which did the cophouse schtick with less mugging for the camera.

Their semi-feral male cat has been coming out to check me out the past few times I've been here. It's weird seeing this black shadow just rub up against the edge of where you're sleeping.  Maybe he'll even let me pet him someday.

I'm here tomorrow mainly to get one piece of paper signed which I've yet to be furnished, then back to Buffalo to deliver it and get some other questions answered.  It's been abnormally warm since the weekend, which makes the driving and shlepping much more tolerable.  After I get home, Eleanor will be taking delivery on her first new computer in three years, so there will be much rejoicing. Also, setting up and transferring and learning Windows 10. But yeah, rejoicing.

If you need advice about feral cats, or semi-feral, or really any other type of Felice domesticus, would be happy to put you in touch with my sister, The Cat Whisperer.
