We met at the high school this morning to help with unboxing the new 1-1 laptops. It’s moments like those that I feel like my true calling is on a factory line, but I would get so bored after just a short while. After we got about halfway through, someone called for a half-day. Apparently they had gotten a late start on waxing our floors, so they let us out after lunch.
A few of us went to Chick-fil-A for lunch, but we didn’t even stay for the full lunch hour before Jason got a call that we had to go move a pallet of computers into the building. Zach asked me to swing by Staples to look for a video cable adapter, and by the time I got back to the shop, they had just started to get the pallet jack. We made short work of the pallet and a half, then left for home.
I took the opportunity to get some laptops ready in case Josh wanted to go to Conway, but he wasn’t feeling up to it. I ended up feeding the duck and cleaning up the house a bit until Amanda emailed saying her phone died, and she wanted to know if I had one I could loan her. She came by to pick up the Moto X 2nd Gen, and then I went to my parents’ for dinner.
Later in the evening, I was playing a couple quick rounds of Battlegrounds with Johnny and Jack when my power suddenly flickered and everything smart in my house started complaining. It happened once more, and I ended up staying up too late fighting with one particular WeMo switch that refused to reconnect to my WiFi. I don’t know what’s up with my router the past few days, but it’s been very aggravating.
Just keep swimming…
