Things are being inordinately complex.
I am trying to catch up work following my vacation. But Monday was Julie's birthday. Friday night is Julie's birthday party. Tonight, we have a softball game -- and an art class this afternoon.
And last night, I got to pause and remove the broken railing on the basement stairs before someone killed themselves by relying on it. This last is easily repaired once I get the parts (I hope!), but it's just one more thing.
