We found the new TV that Dawn had been looking for and which fit happily into the back of the minivan. Then we picked up parts for a new computer for Sam, which we brought back to our house and assembled after I dropped the TV (carefully!) off at Dawn's.
I must be getting better at this. We got home and started work around 8 PM, took an hour break for dinner, and still had the box assembled and the OS installed by just after 11 PM. Mind you, Sam still has to install all the odd drivers and updates, but the box was running when it left here.
Not bad. But, boy, are my muscles sore!
