No, it's not as bad as it looks. But I did blow Pat off today, as I didn't want to be seen as Ms. Computer Fixit, to be called on only when Pat has a need to get something done with her computer.

Today was scheduled to be another Marian Mode day. And it was my 10 am alarm that got me moving. While surfing the web, I got a message from my cousin in Connecticut. We haven't seen each other since she got married. And it is nice that she is reaching out to my brother and I .Hopefully, we'll be able to meet up soon.
My cousin and YGM live in the same area of Connecticut, and I could visit them both in a single overnight trip. YGM and I have wanted to get together again for a while, and have not been able to do so. This coming weekend, we wanted to try to meet up again, but her plans are likely to get in the way.
YGM and her husband own a house in Florida that they have been renting out to her brother. As she said in a message:
My brother randomly rented another house. I think he was going to leave his workers in our house and keep the money they gave him for rent. So we said "No thank you." And I need to dump a bunch of money into the house to get renters in it so I know his workers are not camping out there. Very annoyed
She will soon be going down to Florida to fix up the house and get it rented to someone she can trust. As for me, in her shoes, I'd sell this house and buy something near where I want to retire. Since she wants to retire where it's warm, she's keeping this house for now - with all the headaches involved.

Later on in the day, I had the chance to talk to YGM for a while. She has a voice that doesn't work well with phones, and I was having a hard time understanding her on the cell phone I use only for use as Marian. (My other phones are for use as Mario, though I'll make outgoing calls as Marian to people who know me as Transgender.) Given how difficult it was to understand her, I said that I'd call back on another line. But, she didn't pick up. Instead, I got this message a little later:
My cell phone was dying. So I bent to charge it and got dizzy. Something is wrong with the charger. Hubby took the kids to soccer. I am lying back down. I tried to change into my pj's and almost fell. I am thinking this must be vertigo. I have my laptop next to the bed.
Anyhow my mom is home too. She has to work at midnight but Hubby should be back before then. I will have him bring me my cell phone when he comes back home and try and call you.
She never did get back to me. I hope she's OK....

Thinking of phones reserved for Marian/Mario, I received a call from the GLBT Center on Mario's land line. One problem - I had answered the phone using Mario's voice. So I had to pretend I was not there, saying that I (as Marian) would be back sometime in the afternoon. With friends who know I'm transgender, hearing Mario's voice isn't a problem. But with people who call at random, I don't really want the headaches anymore. So I figure that I'll change all known references for Marian's phone number to the "Marian Only" cell phone I reserve for that use.

Later on, I got a call from GFJ. I was able to tell her my weekend plans, and we agreed that she would be coming here after she visits her mother on Sunday. This means that I have a full day out as Marian on Saturday and if I wake up early enough, the possibility of going to church again as Marian.
