We're going to go and witness our first Aikido lesson tomorrow, and
How did that go...? Did you get there...?
Loki got there first. We were supposed to go in and view the
session, but it turns out they have a family day. Sensei stated that'd probably be the best day for us to show up, and it was on a Saturday.
So we waited a few more days, but I then realized that I'd either forgotten or had never heard what exact time it was supposed to be at.
During this time, our sink plugged, as I believe I mentioned before, jeopardizing the funding. It's at a nexus where the issue should be
the landlord's, and not ours; the problem is that we're unable to let
the landlord in because he'd immediately figure out that there are more people staying here, and this would be bad for us all at this juncture. Anyway, so the money would've been available, because I had the only
cash on me at the time of this small disaster. Which is just as well,
because the Aikido sensei never got back to us regarding when the time was supposed to be. This place is allegedly the best in Portland for Aikido, and I really want to go there, but I _did_ put in two phone
calls last week to him to find out that time and never got a callback. That kind of makes me wonder... Either way I'll be going in to verify what time the family session is that we'll get to [complimentarily] witness and take part in sometime later this week.
Soon enough the next paycheck will be in, so hopefully there will be enough funds to make up whatever the plumber is going to cost us. It'd be really nice to be able to use the kitchen normally again, too. :P
I think I found another community center that we'll be able to check out being as the Y around here is way too far away to be practical, though. Planning on trying to check that out later today or early tomorrow.

the work stuff quick, but that doesn't entirely make up for the part about how I've got a rather different skillset from my partner's. Hopefully I get a chance to brush up more on the stuff he knows and
learn that a little better myself. I've finally gotten back into Algorithms I on kickstarter now, at least. That'll help my ability and give me a little more practice working with some of the concepts that
he knows a lot better than I do.

Hopefully it didn't get to that for you...?Nope. I caught the initial influenza, and somehow (through the
grace of Loki) managed to avoid the strep that both my roommate and my son were down with so badly. That's really odd for me, but now that
I've got my resting pulse down below 65, and a lot of practice eating better, maybe my immune system is finally catching up to the Portland virii a little bit better. :) I was just sitting here waiting for everyone to get better and wondering why the world was blowing up in my face at the same time. Heh.

even with the loss...
a couple of years ago (when I was still in my apartment in Bismarck,
ND, prior to ever moving to Minot, ND). People used to think I was
nuts for crying about it, when I'd identified that it was cancer by the smell, but vindication sadly came. :P I think it was a lot easier because I was grieving for a long time before hand. Not that the
actual incident of it happening was all flower petals and rosewater,
but it probably did make it a lot easier, yeah.
Still working on catching up here; had a lot going on the past few
days and a weird brainblock where I just had to take some time away
from correspondence. Stay tuned!
Maybe he just assumed you'd know, or be able to find out from somewhere else... ;)
Sink fixed now...?
Could just be super busy, or not too organized at the administration level, or his voicemail doesn't work right... Sometimes in person works best for things anyway... :)

Sounds like a reasonable thing... :) And it doesn't hurt to have complementary skills when working on a project... I'm sure that you have some skills that he doesn't... :)
Always helps to have someone not sick to take care of the others, too..;)
Preparation generally helps... but the loss still hurts when it's finalized... Just because one knows what's coming down doesn't make one like it any more.... Sounds like you were fortunate to have the kitty
for as long as you did, actually.. :)
Understood... and I'm slowly doing some catchup... maybe I'll be up to date before I take off for 2 weeks away from access to Fido... ;) But
as that's the end of this week, and things are still rather crazy, we'll just have to wait and see... ;)
