Oh how wonderful! :)

Got out the hospital yesterday. Good to be back but not quite sure if I was ready but at least my mom is off yesterday and today so see how I'm doing before she goes to work tomorrow. But I think I'll be ok.

The game and data and pertinent programs are moved to the desktop computer and backed up on the storage drive. When my laptop dies I will lose nothing.

I also highly enjoyed this day off work with my husband. :3

Managed to find all three bearing for the rear shell of the V-Rod at a local dealer. Two in the wheel itself are common but the third that goes into the sprocket/compensator is not very common so it's hard to find local. So later I'll take spin on the CBR to go get the parts.

I now fit into 32" waste pants. Confirmed it by even trying on a pair of swim shorts in a brand that run on the slim side. Years back the Fox brand outlet store had a ridiculous sale on everything. So I bought a bunch of swim short in various sizes all the way down to 31" waste. I'm begging to thing perhaps I should have bought down to 29"!!!

I know it’s difficult for you to wrap your mind around the notions of joy and happiness since you’re perpetually miserable but they exist!

I'll focus on a positive from today, following the cancellation of my train the other weekend, today I got a free travel voucher from the rail operator Northern to allow return travel to/from anywhere on their network although unsure where I should go as their presence isn't that big where I live.

I got to work on the RPG game today after work, and I continue to do the nightly backup of the game. It’s feels much more like I accomplish something whenever I do a backup to the safe storage drive after working on it. :)

USPS made me smile. I recently ordered two packages from the US to Scotland, one using cheap regular non-priority USPS First Class International shipping, the other using FedEx International Priority. USPS was actually no slower than priority FedEx: both took just 4 days. :awesome:

Starting my two week trip today. Can’t wait to experience all that white privilege Derek was talking about.
