Let me explain...

... No. There is too much. Let me sum up.

As usual, events have been eventful

Peter and I went on a vacation to see the total solar eclipse. Between the eclipse itself and the blissful 7 whole business days when I didn't have to think about my job, it was absolutely worth all the money and time in the car. We watched the eclipse in a tiny little podunk town in Tennessee. It turned out that the clock in front of the courthouse lights up at night. We know this because it lit up during totality. For some reason, that really just made the whole thing for me. We also (later) climbed up the side of a mountain in Virginia and then slept outdoors next to a cabin that's about the same age as Peter. I would say that was also in a little podunk town, but using the word "town" would rather overstate the matter. It was staggeringly gorgeous countryside, just also staggeringly far from civilisation as I know it.

While we were on vacation, my computer picked up a new trick wherein it decided that it couldn't do any kind of file writes (saving documents, downloading emails...) and only started working again after I booted it into safe mode. It did it again a few days ago. I am Not Amused, but also not really together enough to deal with it in any meaningful way beyond doing the safe mode trick. At some point I'll boot from my Disk Warrior flash drive and run some diagnostics and etc, and hopefully that will put a stop to this nonsense.

I am starting to think about what kind of job I would want to do were I not doing the job I have now. This one has pretty much wrung me out recently, for all that I didn't really recognize it until I didn't have to do it for a week and a half. I wouldn't even mind that so much if I enjoyed it more, but I don't. The money is good, though, and being the primary income-earner for the household means that taking a big pay cut is not really an option. There are plenty of customer support jobs around, but they all have the same ultimate problems.

I'm figuring out that I really prefer project-based work like the documentation stuff, so at least that's something to be going on with. It's much less anxiety-inducing than the support work, and there's a lot to be said for reducing the amount of anxiety in my life.
