I'ma nope out right there, but you have my sympathies whatever it is the rest of your post says.

I have no idea how far I am from the actual fire because nobody wants to share that information, but basically I've been hitting refresh constantly on anything that might give me a heads up before kicking me out of my home. I've been annoying #finalfight incessantly about this and, honestly, I'm sorry y'all.

I'm putting one foot in front of the other. Trying to avoid the news, making sure I work out, medicating as needed (and don't worry, I'm staying within the dosage printed on the bottle). Forgot to take my BP meds this morning, so that wasn't great; having to go outside with the dog every morning (instead of just opening her door and leaving her to her own devices like usual; the vet said we need to make sure she takes it easy for a few more weeks because of that torn ACL) has thrown off my morning routine and I've been missing steps that are usually rote. So I thought I was just anxious but it turned out I was anxious and took my BP meds 12 hours late. Honestly couldn't tell the difference between today and yesterday (when I took my meds as normal); that's kinda how things have been these past few days.
Work was busy enough today that I could spend time focusing on IDEs and command lines and documenting stuff for the new teammates, and that was nice. It's always better when you have shit to do, things that require your immediate focus so your mind doesn't wander.
I'm worried about the election, I'm worried about the months that will follow, and then, best-case, come January I can settle down to worrying about how manifestly ill-suited Biden is to tackle the challenges of our age. And also that there's a plague, still.
Thanks for being here, guys and gals. I don't know how well I'm handling all this, but I'm glad I'm with friends.
I'm glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things, Sam.
