Spring Sprung & the Walls Came Down

Dear John,

Spring has sprung. Margaret and I turned on the fan in the drive-up today. It was an occasion. I took out the blanket we've used to block the cold air that comes in around the walk-up window. And I smelled my first skunk. All the signs of spring are here.

Today the walls came down and I had a front-row seat. They took down the old dime store this morning. Then this afternoon they hit a gas line. - it turns out that NIPSCO capped the wrong line. They were still at it when I came home at 6:15. Remember the car I washed yesterday? It has a lovely layer of dime store dust all over it. But the road salt is gone, so I suppose I can't complain. The noise was amazing - it was hard to hear the customers. And we all got lots of questions about what was happening. It will be interesting to watch all of this unfold.
 
Other than that, it was another completely insane Friday. I spent almost an hour on the phone with tech support trying to get my printer to work. Then I explored a bit when I was off the phone and discovered that somebody had plugged the cord into the wrong USB port. It was a simple fix that took forever to find. Tech support was relieved and happy.
 
UK beat Florida while I was at work. Duke is playing at 9:00; there's no way I can stay up tonight. I worked eleven hours on my feet, going full speed all the time. And I'm back in at 7:30 in the morning. Thank goodness for the prednisone! I did pretty well today. But I'm not going to push it. A woman's got to breathe!
 
I'm going to sleep now while I can do so electively. I still wish you could rub my feet, but tonight I don't believe I could stay awake for it. You'll have to come see me in my dreams. In my mind, I sleep with you every night.
 
Dreaming of you,
Joan.
