One of those days...

Today feels like it has been three separate long days.

Day, part 1:

Woke up still sick. Felt really awful but tried to work anyway (was working from home today, on union web stuff). At 10:30, after accomplishing very little, caved and went back to bed until noon.

Day, part 2:

Felt better after a nap and lunch. Plowed through a LOT of info about Drupal (hey! I think I might actually like this CMS). Broke brain*. Did some maintenance on the current union website. Looked at clock... uh-oh, 4:00, time to think about getting kiddo from daycare.

Day, part 3:

Took the long route to go get kiddo, owing to the beautiful weather today (oh, right, this is why I live here) and thinking that the fresh air would do me well. Took camera; took many photos along the way.

Gathered kiddo and walked home with her. Had dinner. Watched The Day After Tomorrow with kiddo and hubby while uploading many photos to flickr.

Day, part 3.5:

Back to Drupal (since I owe about 4 hours to the Union, and it's gotta be done sometime soon...). With hubby's help, I set up a development site on my desktop and I am now diving in headfirst to try and set up the site... "look, ma! no hands!" Actually, as content management systems go, Drupal is pretty swish.... and once I get the hang of it, I will be using it in the redesign of some of my other sites (starting with the sadly neglected FrugalVictoria)...

*Clearly, I cannot go back to school. While it is no problem at all to remember that Bel Biv Devoe sang the craptacular 80s tune Poison, apparently I have trouble integrating new information. I have to do it in small bursts... I think maybe an hour to 90 minutes is the limit.
