I Have Random Thoughts Of Randomness

I spent a goodly portion of yesterday working on a website I administer trying to track down a bug that baffled me. I even got into it last night during my "goof off after the wife goes to sleep" time.

This morning, I realized that it wasn't a bug; I had just completely forgotten the proper procedure for relating two different types of content. Which I had previously documented in excruciating detail.

The governor of our state is withholding over $35 million from the university's budget. The place I work as a pretty large endowment that generally covers expenses, but with the way the stock market and such are working these days, the money situation and all has me worried. Right before everything hit, a co-worker was laid off because the executive director decided there wasn't enough work she had been hired to do to justify her position, which gave me pause at the time and has tweaked my financial anxiety. Everything continues apace, though, and we're still a lot better off than some people, so that's good. Anxiety, though.

I'm starting to have a difficult time dealing with things. I can't discuss this sort of thing with the wife; she would just take it as a challenge. "Huh, that's nuthin'! I can top that!"

I don't really have anyone I can talk to, as the few friends I have are all in the same boat I am. I was practicing social distancing before social distancing was cool, and look where that has put me now.

I guess I have you guys, which is nice.

At least it's spring. Did the first mow of the season in the front last night, and will do the back tonight if it doesn't rain. That actually felt pretty good.

Time to get back to work. Everyone stay safe.
