I can generally only sleep 3-4 hours at a stretch, before I have to get up to go to the bathroom. That’s true of nearly all of us.
I use that time, when I’m too wired to immediately go back to bed, toread, study, or write blog posts. I’ve been doing that last a lot, lately, both here and at Right As Usual – The Next Generation. I’m no longer trying to be the Founding Mother for a New Generation of Patriots. I’m just linking to important or useful posts by smarter people than I, passing along information I’ve learned that I thought might be useful, and letting people know what my own Next Steps are, in hope of sparking others to think about where they are at.
Oh, and occasionally writing the Get-it-Off-My-Chest posts, lest I pop off in public or in a quiet family dinner. Gotta let the steam out, ‘ya know.
Personal: I’m hip deep in clearing out the junk in our southern house. I’m starting to see progress. I’m in frequent communication with husband and family about my progress, and they’ve given me some good suggestions about handling the process.
I delivered the Radio and Physics talk to the AAPT (American Association of Physics Teachers) last week. It went well, and I’m hopeful that we can develop some projects between AAPT and ARRL (American Radio Relay League). Gotta love these acronyms, doncha?
The warmer weather is helping my joints (other than the recent storm system that came through this week). Doggo is loving the new neighborhood to explore, and I’m getting my mileage in. It’s going to be tight timing, but I’m hopeful that we can clear it up and get it finished in the next month. That would take a big load off my plate, and my budget.
