Well, it’s been a long week. My computer’s hard disk died last Monday, so I’ve been unable to update this blog.
Not quite true. I could have updated it, but didn’t feel like editing the files directly on the website. Wouldn’t have updated the newsfeed anyway.
This was the last of several misfortunes: my heat pump died, and my truck had heartburn. I spent a week without heat. I believe I’ll be back to normal tomorrow, with a slimmer bank balance and a calmer disposition.
Oddly, I remained content through this experience. Not depressed, at least. Oh, I ground my teeth a few times, but overall I shrugged and moved on. Fortunately, none of these problems were long-term; I didn’t lose any friends or family. It was just…stuff, breaking down.
