Back to the Grind
UGH. Back at work and met by 445 emails. Once I got through all the junk, "Alluser" mass deliveries, and the idiots who reply "Thanks!" to an email thread - it was really only about 50 that provided useful info or require some type of action. Still - it took me all morning to get through them.

I thought I had gotten away with little to no real jet lag from the trip until about 2:00 PM yesterday afternoon, when a bus hit me. Fell into a coma for a few hours, made myself get up a few hours later (4:30 PM felt like the middle of the night), and stayed up till 10:00 before going back to bed. Hopefully, I'm all straightened out now.

I owe most of my neighbors an apology for this morning. At about 8:30, the tree removal company showed up to take down the huge Siberian Elm tree in my yard. In order to get their crane and equipment down my street, I had to ask everyone living both adjacently and across the street from me to move their cars this morning. Not a popular request.

I'll post before and after photos - it's a huge tree, and one that will be sorely missed, but its roots were starting to cause problems in my yard and in my neighbor's yard, so it had to go. The landscapers will start next week to replace my deck with a flagstone patio, and put in some more appropriately sized trees and shrubs.
