Dept. of getting back to normal

Returning to Earth

Today was an interesting day. It wasn't spent in the limbo of a hospital, nor in the jubilation of Bob's return home, or completely sacked out in post-hospital collapse (that happened Tuesday; I came home from dealing with the car and Bob promptly ordered me to bed, and left a message with my boss saying he didn't trust me to drive. I slept right through until 8 p.m.)

Today, I actually got some work done, including an interview done on the road - note to self: don't ever - ever - write notes while driving again. Even when you don't take your eyes from the road, making your notes look like spirit-writing as a result.  And my beloved got the washer put back together.

Let me repeat that. He got the washer put back together. And I washed the first in-house load of laundry of the past three weeks. How awesome is that?

And before I head off to bed (where going to sleep with my head on his chest  again is still wonderfully new and wonderfully old) enjoy interesting links, courtesy of the Pew Research Center. This one includes
interesting figures on Americans and their use of technology (which my dyspeptic beloved pointed out lags far behind many other nations around the globe), while this one is an absolutely fascinating look at how mobile tech skews demographics skews polls.

Normal is the new normal :-)

It is indeed, and I'm quite ready for this latest fad.

Tech skew goes back at least to Dewey Defeats Truman. (Although Googling I find the karma of a printers strike and the hubris of relying on their in-house pundits in addition.)

Tech skew is definitely not a new thing, but this latest iteration was really interesting. I like the idea of an accurate feed sack poll, though. Heh.

Totally awesome, that's what that is. Huzzah for Bob's continued recovery and return to washer assembly expertise, and to the return of in-home clothes washing capabilities.

Thanks for the links, and for the update, too. Continue getting lots of rest; your body and mind has a lot to recover from, too.

Today we just enjoyed the gorgeous sun and fall colors as we did some chores, and have a couple of windows open tonight, even though it's a little cold, because the air is so crisp and lovely.
