Better late than never. I am thankful for:
- Colleen, and a friendship deep enough that we can talk things out when we need to.
- People who understand what people like me are like, sometimes better than I understand myself.
- Being told that sometimes I don't have to understand, and that's ok.
- A week without bad days.
- My kids.
- My friends.
- A steady, interesting job.
Productive day? Probably not so much, but my mood was basically positive except for a little while in the morning.
A good walk, about 45 minutes around the pond. Got about halfway before I had to start slowing down.
I took a closer look at bags, notably the Eagle Creak Vagabond and the Tom Bihn Ristretto for Netbooks. The former is a little too big, but about half the price and big enough to hold a magazine or a clipboard. It opens from the top, and the organizer compartment is easier to get at. The latter has a removable strap on swivel clips, and is closer to the size I want, but it also has a flap instead of zippers. Is a puzzlement. The Eagle Creek Guide Pro is closer to the right size, but appears to have a less convenient organizer.
Lots of links, but I'm lazy -- scroll up to the notes. Do people like having the raw notes, or should I just link to a separate file somewhere?
