This week has been a strange and frustrating mix of getting nothing done and kicking my to-do list’s tail. Maybe it’s all been kicking my to-do list’s tail and it only felt like getting nothing done. It’s hard to say.

At any rate, several more pressing issues have been dealt with and are out of the way, which is a great relief. You should not be surprised to learn that the laundry isn’t done yet, but we do have both the butter dish and the vacuum cleaner in the new apartment.

That’s got to count for something.
