Making things work (better)

So fun hanging with the Andrewses last night. Last time we did this (three weeks ago), we all felt a little rushed—we had more BSG episodes to watch, and barlow_girl and I had just gone through a day full of repair work outside of/blocking our door (which was, of course, estimated by our landlord as a "one hour job" but instead drug on through the whole day). It's much better to have more time to catch up and enjoy each others' company. We talked about our families some toward the end of the evening, which made us grateful for the ways we've been blessed by/in them and not as alone in the ways in which they're each a struggle (even when the specific struggles vary widely).

My MacBook Pro is giving me fits—the internal keyboard and trackpad keep locking up and currently aren't responding at all. Quick search of the internet reveals it's not an uncommon problem, though causal theories and solutions are all over the map. Probably just need to knuckle down and take it in this afternoon.

I have the most trouble getting moving on Sunday mornings. I'm up and about at the same time, but my focus is much worse and I'm incredibly slow at getting anything done (I can only imagine how much tougher that is with kids!). If there's a way to do it better, I'd love to learn it.
