These disaster recovery tests we do at work are completely out of control. Today we have to do a pre DR test for the actual one next week. What is the purpose of doing it twice except to just waste our time?

My building on campus probably has the best employee to restroom ratio. 2 restrooms, at most 5 people working in office. Tomorrow they'll be two of us. It's actually quite nice.

KC moved seats but didn't end up in your old ones. went to 239 instead of 238 only dropped down 2 rows to rw 12. I guess I'll see if I like them in about 60 days or so. Not a lot of choices available in those sections.

Just pulled an @snowcraig2.0 and forgot LittleWx at school. Well at the pickup point. He walks up a hill from school and we get him from there instead of waiting in the car pickup line. I was about 10 minutes late and he had just started walking towards a friends house in tears.
Doghouse (or worse) for you. See you later.

Time to get him a phone.

My garage sitting neighbors and adulterer neighbors must be having a turf war. The garage sitters had their property staked. The adulterers have been mowing about 5-6 feet onto the garage sitters property. The garage sitters went out and put their push mower on setting 0 and scalped a couple passes on their side of the boundary markers right after the adulterers mowed.

I enjoy watching crappy neighbors getting into Peeing matches.

One of Z's last in-person days, I was late to get her while setting up a book fair in Hubbard. One thing after another ran long, and I didn't make the pickup time. She was crying in the office when I got there. Oops.

Since the company locked us book fair reps out as COVID closings started, I never have known how that fair did, either.

Well on the bright side, at least there was a friend's house to fall back on.

This stuff happens. One time I brought a kid home from baseball when both of his parents left without him.
