 My Friday and Saturday:

- sore throat
- hurt my back
- internet & tv out
- library closed
- cafe intolerably loud
- stressful conversations with landlord about internet
- minor argument with Sparkly

The internet is working, the landlord is placated (and will be out of town next week, which is an extra relief), I had a good conversation with Sparkly, and my back is feeling better. I got almost no work done both Friday and today, but I did do some cleaning and laundry, at least. I'm relieved but tired.

 Sparkly's team got to their new location safely. Cube Guy is going to be out of town this weekend. He took today and tomorrow off work for something that got cancelled, but he's decided at the last minute to plan a new trip. This weekend I need to remember to go to the library and return A Fisherman of the Inland Sea before it's overdue. I also need to get back to looking at apartments.

 My throat hurts and I'm Tired, but I had a good day. Work was boring, cats are good. Tomorrow Sparkly's team is relocating from just-south-of-Jacksonville to actually-in-Jacksonville. Ey seems to be getting along well with eir boss, which is wonderful.

 I did a lot of work today and my brain is very tired. Oh, I should mention, though- Sparkly got a confirmed ~demobilization date~ for when ey's coming home: October 10th.

Today I captioned an interview with a woman who runs an after-school theater program and had a lot of feelings about "shyness" and public speaking. Theater is great. Music is great. Being in the pit orchestra for the school musical was hands down the best thing I did in high school. But the way some people talk about kids "coming out of their shells" rubs me the wrong way.

 All is well and I'm very tired even though I didn't really do anything today. I went grocery shopping and played computer games, that's it. Maybe I'll kick the cats out of the bedroom and actually sleep in tomorrow morning.

 I have a purring cat in my lap and a lot of good fiction in my life. I finished A Fisherman of the Inland Sea and really enjoyed it. It's cool to learn a little more about the "Hainish" setting. The titular story was amazing, and so was "Dancing to Ganam". 

Also Sparkly is sending me fic recommendations, and this updated so of course I'm having all the feelings in the world. Sparkly is still in Jacksonville and still doing well.

 Sparkly is busy but doing well. The only news I got from em today is that part of eir group got split off and sent to Miami instead. 

I've started looking at apartments again. There are plenty of good prospects, but I need to talk to Sparkly in detail about exactly how much we can afford, because I don't know exactly what some of eir expenses are.

Tomorrow's to-dos include taking out the trash and actually getting more toilet paper.

 Sparkly is well. Today I went to the grocery store mainly for toilet paper, and ended up getting everything on the list except the toilet paper. But I did get some work-work and some housework done, and now Zinfandel-cat is sitting on me and purring, so things are pretty good.

Sparkly is in a hotel near Jacksonville, after a day of complicated logistics, getting eir group of 50-ish people and all their luggage, equipment and vehicles across the state. Ey is very pleased to have an actual room and an actual bed tonight.

I had a very calming day of captioning Bob Ross-esque how-to videos about watercolor painting.

I'm tired but all is well

Sparkly had an uneventful day in a big empty building that FEMA is using as a headquarters. Eir group might be sent somewhere else tomorrow, maybe to Jacksonville, ey doesn't know for sure yet. I did a decent amount of work and mostly cleaned up the kitchen.
