Yes indeed.  I took a cig break.  Back when I was going through my chemo and crap, I hadn't written a thing for nearly 7 months other than scrawling my name on a form.  When it came time to re enter the world and attempt things like work.  It was really hard to start writing, anything again, even in simple print.  It hurt to even grip a pen for a while.  The shop where I attempt to work at these days just got into paperless, we were still using two part carbonless for jobs until just 2 years ago, here in the 21st Century.  Me I think it still has its place, but I digress.  I got to see my handwriting on cards that in some cases went back almost 10 years.  I used to have very neat and precise block printing and in my absence my handwriting was noticed and appreciated.  I found that out when I came back.  Now its pretty crappy.  I just can't seem to do it well anymore and its been quite a few years that I have been returned now.

Now the cursive.  Been at it for about a week now and its kinda working.  Another thing, as I was writing, I asked myself what was the difference between a diary and a journal and put a little arrow in the margin.  A page and about 10 minutes later, the thought came back, that a diary is a log and a journal, at least what I'm doing, is a stream of thought cathartic process that is just one way to mental floss.  But I never kept a diary, so I'm just guessing on that part.

Back to tunes and scribbling into the night.

Trying to secure an emergency plumber. Rented my cabin to people who clogged the toilet, told me it was fine after I called for a plumber, and then they left.

Cleaning lady in there today and when she flushed, crap/water all over the floor, in the shower pan, flooding the house.

There's a new renter coming tomorrow afternoon, and right now it seems like a disaster...
The ones that clogged the toilet just wrote telling me what a great place it is and how much fun they had. (I had to write back asking if they toilets were fine when they left.)

What a massive pain. I'm working 14 hours today, and 14 hours tomorrow, so I can't leave and troubleshoot. Grr.

I know all about this and have become an expert on it pretty much. When I bought the house it had been empty for years and was home to thousands of bats that I had to deal with. Took several months to get them all excluded as these Victorian homes have so many places they can make nests. I got bit dozens of times while working on the house. I had so many rabies shots and boosters they call me "Batman" at the ER. The ER is the only place in VA you can get them. And none of the docs or nurses knew anything about rabies. The first time I went in they didn't even have any vaccine in stock and had to wait 3 hours in the ER for a messenger to bring some from Richmond. Then they gave me the doses for the entire course the same night instead of over a month and had to stay 24 hours for observation. I've had so many rabies shots that when I was tested for a booster 3 years after the last one my level was so high I didn't need it. They said  because I had so many I may become immune to the shots. 
The national average of rabies in bats is 1 to 3% but here in Damnville its as high as 11%. If you catch the bat the Health Dept will test it so if its neg you don't need the shot. I've only been able to catch the offending bats twice and one was pos and the other neg but they gave me the shots anyways because it took so long for the results. One time my cat Stinky caught one and it was pos also so he got boosters and quarantine for a month. 
Only once did I actually see the bite. The bat had landed on my arm when I was sleeping and when I rolled over it bit me and flew off. I wasn't able to find the damn bat but there were 2 tiny holes about 1/8" apart on my arm and it was visible long enough for the ER doc to see it.
But you can still catch rabies from the spit from the bat when it makes its navigation noise if it gets into your eyes, mouth etc, Like if it flies over you. A child died this way right here in town 3 years ago.

 
so tell me
how come i can't see you in my mirror?
how come you never come around here in the day?
how come you start to hiss when i say my prayers
and you wear those stupid capes
