I spent most of this week at work programming, and after the more political stuff I've had to worry about, lately, it has definitely been a relief. The simple joy of work for which nearly all of my problems are of my own making is positively therapeutic. There are a couple of more political issues that I have to keep monitoring, but those issues have stayed dormant for most of the week. So far, every day this week, I've had to drag myself away from my CRT and make myself go home. I wish more weeks were like this.
