Boy, I really hate being up before 6. It just feels wrong.

Yes, Pat is cycling.

Yesterday we were both slugs. It was lovely.

Today he's off riding and I'm doing laundry so I won't be naked next week.

I cannot even talk about the Republican's health bill without wanting to foam at the mouth. It's all for a tax cut for the wealthy. Every single thing in it is to secure a tax cut for the people with the most money in this county.

And they're doing it on the backs of the poor and disabled.

There is no pit in hell deep enough for these people.

I flashed two routes, sent three others, and worked four others. My climbing technique sucked, and my strength (particularly forearm) was lacking, but I had a lot of fun. I was at The Edge for three hours. I came home with three flappers and assorted knee bruising, but I would do it again today if I could.

Climbing is fantastic.

While there I saw two guys send two incredibly difficult routes. One was a 5.13, and the other a 5.12. Pat got photos of them and I asked them if they'd like to get them. one of the guys gave us his number and Pat texted them all to him. (They were partners, belaying each other.)

I talked with a couple of other climbers. Had a blast. This is my community, and God, do I miss them.

Pat bought me a new The Edge t-shirt, which I am wearing now.

When I was climbing, every time I got a flapper, I'd just tape it down and go on climbing. (You have to tape them or you'll bleed all over the holds, and that's just not courteous!) I exchanged the tape for bandaids when I got home, but I'm finding it very hard to type with bandaids. They make my fingers feel clumsy.

It was a wonderful day of forgetting all the troubles of the world. I needed that.

I have spent most of the past two days transferring information from one accounting program to another. I probably have at least one more day's work left to do, if not more.

This is the most TEDIOUS thing I've done in years.

ARGH.

In other news, I got up at my regular hour of 6:15. YAY!

I continue to be disgusted with Republicans and the people who support them.

The only reason no one in my immediate vicinity is dead is because today is my Friday. Thank God for four day work weeks.

Yes, Pat's off cycling again.

I spent yesterday transferring numbers from one accounting program to another. I cannot begin to tell you how much this sucks. It's tedious, and if I had dual monitors it would be much easier. As it is, I have both open and have to flip back and forth between them.

It is no wonder that by the end of the day I was frazzled.

However, the good news is that Quickbooks is as easy as I remember. I am fumbling my way through it without too much trouble. It's more or less, enter this and see if this way works, and if it doesn't try another. So after a couple of tries, I've found out how to get things in the way I want them. Not difficult. Just tedious.

I came home and spent some time talking to Pat and reading. I'm reading a book by Chuck Wendig called ATLANTA BURNS. That's the name of the main character. It's not a "fun" book, but then nothing Wendig does is fun. It's just real and interesting, and often frightening.

It is also very far away from transferring numbers from one program to another.

And yes, Pat is off to go bicycling.

My brain got fried yesterday from looking at numbers. Trying to make them all balance was an exercise in "kill me now." But it's done.

Today will be beginning the process of moving numbers from one accounting program to another. Yes, it must all be done manually. Thank you very much. (sigh)

In other news, it rained like a motherfucker yesterday and the roads between me and home were starting to flood by the time I left work. Fun times.

(sigh)

You know what we need? We need another summer of love. Because this hatred shit is getting incredibly old.

In other news, yesterday was a quiet day for me. I finished the last of the Twenty Palaces books. (sigh) I really wish that the author would write more in that universe, but he hasn't, so I'm not holding my breath. They are really good books.

Pat drove to his friend's and was back in the early afternoon. We took a good long nap.

We both kind of snacked for dinner.

I found out that you know when to pick a pineapple by its color. You wait for it to go from green to yellow. When it's all yellow it's ready to be picked. So I will watch my little pineapple and wait for it to turn yellow. Right now it is very green.

But I look forward to some day eating pineapple I grew myself!

I took him to the theater with the reclining seats. He really liked them. He said it kept his knees from hurting. He enjoyed the movie.

He bought me dinner after the movie and we talked for quite a while. We had a lovely waiter, who was extremely nice to both of us.

Pat and I took a nap when I got home, because I was really tired from being up at 5:45. I ended up not eating dinner in the evening because I'd eaten at 4 pm in the afternoon. Which is fine. It's not like I needed more food.

I'm nearly finished with the prequel to the Twenty Palaces series by Harry Connolly. I really like this series. I have read something that indicates he may not do any more books in this series. That makes me sad, because I really enjoy them.

But at least I did discover them and get to read them.

Pat has taken off to see Ric again this morning. He'll be back this afternoon. Whatever shall I do with my day? Probably read. (grin)

I was very glad to see him. We talked about our weeks, and decided we'd do Little Ceasar's pizza as we were both tired.

I had gone and gotten my hip beaten on in the morning, and then had lunch with my friend JoAnn and picked up some materials from her to help her with submitting a romantic novella for publication.

I finished the Jo Bannister book, and then I started another.

We went to bed early because Pat wanted to ride today. So my alarm went off at 5:45. That is WAY too early.

He's off to cycle now.

I'll clean up and later go to pick up my 95 year old friend, Dr. Sunwall, and take him to see WONDER WOMAN.

Pat and I have promised each other a long nap when I return home.

I did sleep better with him here. He put is hand on my head and I was out like a light. For some reason that's incredibly soothing to me.

That is the most important thing happening. I miss him when he's away, despite getting to eat ice cream for dinner.

Got through work without killing myself or anyone else. I have begun the process of getting Quickbooks updated so that I can begin using it.

Came home and read again. I can't seem to find anything I want to watch, so I just read. I'm more than half-way through a new book. (Yes, the fourth in the new (to me) Jo Bannister series.)

It's interesting to me that in reading this book I can see that she breaks all kinds of rules. POV changes and everything. But I don't care. I love the characters and I find the stories compelling.

This kind of fascinates me.
