So yesterday was almost an unmitigated disaster.
Something got shipped to wrong place and had to be held and eventually reshipped. I forgot to send something else out for testing and have to scramble to get quotes assembled and the material shipped. One material was supposed to ship at the end of last month but the supplier lied (no other way to put it) and now it is out four to six weeks. A starting material cannot be received until the testing is complete, which is about two weeks before it is needed. The building management quote is completely wrong and has to be redone (more expensive, of course). And finally, just before I left, the water system sprung (another) leak, so the system had to be shut down.
And yet in spite of all, that, my house was still intact, my pets still happy to see me, the Ravishing Mrs. TB still as beautiful as ever, Na Clann good and doing well in school, my health is good and strength better than ever, my salvation assured, my iai going well with class that night, japan in threee weeks, and our ongoing project in using food we have for eating going well.
In other words, it was a pretty darn awesome day.
