It's 4:59 AM (EST) in this part of the world. . .
As usual, "Old Man Bladder" woke me up. (Ugh!) Otherwise, I had a good night's sleep.
Spent the day, yesterday, recording & mixing-down the hymns that will be played for our church's on-line service this Sunday. (There's tentative plans to resume in-house church services on July 12th. But that's not set in stone yet.) It took my longer than usual to mix-down the music. I just got real obsessed with making sure the notes were played correctly, and with getting the "right sound" (with EQing, panning, reverb-levels, etc.). In other words, I had a nice afternoon, yesterday! L O L!
Yesterday evening, we experienced a weird brown-out with the electricity. Since then, it seems that our air-conditioning system isn't working correctly. With the next few days promising to be hot and humid, it would be nice to have a functioning air-condition system. There are certainly are far, far worst things happening in the world now. But it would be nice to have this system up and running. Hopefully the repair person is available to at least look into the matter. (I'm totally stupid to when it comes to these things. I did check the circuit-breaker, though. That's OK.) Oh well. . .
I'm working tonight and tomorrow night. Off Saturday night. Then, I'm working the day-shift as Shift Director Sunday, 7AM to 7PM. The full-time Shift Director wanted Sunday off. I'm certainly happy to work for him. But! I really, really don't like working the day shift. There's a reason why I've worked the night shift for most of my 28+ year nursing career. The day shift is just a different world, often with more people. (Whine!) At least the extra $$$ will be good.
Been obsessing with this whole Covid-19 thing. Seeing it spread like wild fire across a significant portion of the U.S. is very worrisome, to say the least. I had a long phone conversation with my step-mother (my father's 2nd wife), yesterday. It was her birthday. Being in her mid-70s, she's understandably frightened about this pandemic. It is profoundly sad that, as a nation, we're experiencing an increase people of getting this virus. It could have been a much different situation, with proper oversight and planning. But, here we are. At least our area of the country is seeing a slow-down of the spread of this virus. But we have family and friends who live in Florida and Arizona, the current "hot-spots" of Covid-19. Many family members are not in the healthiest condition. Hopefully they'll follow appropriate precautions.
I don't mean to be a downer. There're certainly lots of good happening in the world, too.
Anyway. . . Be safe, folks! Peace. . .
