Checking in for 2023-09-17:

  • Yesterday I spent most (all?) of the day fighting with CiviCRM (read about it here). I'm not sure what possessed me to spend most of the day on this but I suspect it was because it used to work and recently didn't work anymore. Plus I had a recurring reminder to run the scheduled jobs and every time it felt like an irritation. I was seriously considering rewriting the whole damn thing (I was drafting how this would all work in my head). Fortunately I managed to fix this so the desire to rewrite has faded somewhat but it demonstrates how much discomfort can motivate me to want to enact drastic change.
  • Managed to knock off a few more tasks on my lists. There's 103 next actions on my lists but most of those are pretty simple to knock off. I just need to find time and energy to do them. Some of them are conversations I need to have, some of them are phone calls, and some of them are just things that have been on these lists for a while and need to have some action put to them sooner than later (like taking Pixel to the vet for her yearly checkup, which is never a pleasant experience under "normal" circumstances). Slowly but surely they are getting accomplished and fueling the desire to keep going.
  • This week I'm scheduled to do chemo with Lonsurf and Bevacizumab (nee: Avastin, Mvasi, Zirabev) again. We'll see if that actually happens or not based on my recent tests.
  • The last few days I haven't really needed a nap. Yesterday, though, I napped hard with full Technicolor dreams and what-not. That's a data point.

That's all I can think of at the moment. More as I know it.
