Sustained Effort

One of the best ways to achieve anything, really, is to just keep plugging away at it. Keep writing, and eventually you'll have a book. Keep drawing, eventually you'll have a long-running comic. etc.

So in that vein, last night laurie_robey and I did a kind of low-key putter on getting the house arranged -- with lots of taking breaks whenever we felt like.

Still, in this non-aggressive mode, we managed to get a lot accomplished. Both computers are now wired for sound and my scanner is connected and ready for strips; the printer shelves are assembled; Laurie put away a lot of the kitchen implements; I found my missing clothes (but not the toothpaste or razor yet); we determined which plugs in the living room and bedroom are operated by the wall switch and moved the bedroom lamp accordingly; I switched the floor lamps in the studio to a more useful configuration; we got the pile of boxes in the dining room down to 4' high from 7' high ... and we started attacking the laundry. This was after a full day of work and stopping back at the apartment to put the trash out over there.

So we managed to get a pretty good swath of stuff done, while still having a relatively restful evening. I even managed to get a little prep work done for my next D&D game. :) All it takes is staying on task.

Too bad now I gotta spoil all that by going to work. ;P

My stepdaughters have an unerring gift for immediately figuring out which outlets in their rooms are hooked up to the light switch.

Unfortunately, it usually involves plugging in either the computer or the TV/DVD/Cable Box into the switch-controlled outlet, and then deciding it's too much trouble to move them or run extension cords from a "safe" outlet, so, for the rest of our stay in a given residence, it's Hands Off the Light Switch.

Take the initiative! Run the extension cord yourself and blame the flashing

on a power outage! ;)
