LITTLE THINGS: a mundane diary-uh entry
*You might want to read this bit of (fairly big) news from Delia
*Yay! I got my updated credit report today with one derogatory item DELETED since I finally invested the time to write a stupid letter about it (leftover ex-husband stuff; I am so lazy about these things -- so lazy, in fact, I'd probably still be married to him on paper if he hadn't taken the initiative to file the papers; too bad he wasn't as proactive about paying his credit card bills).
*After spending a whole wonderful week away from home and work I was able this morning to pinpoint with clarity a couple of the things that really drain my energy. Number one is the problems we're having with the spycam site we're exhibiting on and the connection instability we've had there for about six months now. It is the worst feeling to greet the day by finding out that your spycams are inexplicably disconnected and you have, in effect, failed to deliver on a promise you've made to your customers. Number two is our freewheeling unscheduled approach to each day; while there are benefits to doing whatever you want WHENEVER you want, it's aggravating and inefficient when you want to do whatever you want WHENEVER you want WITH YOUR PARTNER. I can see now how much of an annoyance and energy-drain it is to me when we interrupt each other in our offices and decide spontaneously we want to do something (eat, go to the gym, go for a walk) when the other person isn't ready for that and HAS NO IDEA WHEN THEY WILL BE. I don't know how much it affects Tucker, but contrasting how relaxed I felt last week with the nuisance factor of today back at home I'm thinking it would be good for us to commit to more of a schedule.
