I’m attempting to work from home, but I can’t connect to work’s network because, I think, the VPN needs upgrading. A co-worker had the same problem a week or so ago, but I guess no one thought “Hm, other people might also be similarly affected.” So I’m kinda dead in the water.
I’m home because my elderly furnace malfunctioned yesterday — it started heating up but the blower didn’t go on, so it REALLY started heating up, till I shut it down. So it’s 58° in the house and I’m waiting for the furnace repair person to arrive. I think I’ve mentioned that the furnace is original with the house, so it’s 42 years old, which in furnace years is usually, well, dead. I like using things up, see. I’m going to have it repaired, but also get a quote on a new furnace and air-conditioning unit, unless of course they can’t repair it now.
The main reason I decided to repair the furnace if at all possible is, suddenly my mother has developed some new medical symptoms that have me concerned, not the least of which is a fall she took a few days ago. We’re waiting for her doctor to review things and get back to her with proposed next steps.
So, I’m waiting for furnace repair and I’m waiting for my mom’s doctor and I’m waiting for IT (who have just given me indication that they think I’m on a PC, not a Mac… oh joy). Wait, I already DID a Monday this week!
