November is here. It kind of snuck up on me out of nowhere. With the storm that rolled through, it just pushed Halloween right out of the picture and brought November in the back door. This past week was ok enough for me, and I am so thankful for that. It has not been as nice to so many people and it hurts that I am unable to help the way I want to. I will make my monetary donations once my check comes. (I am actually waiting on a physical paper check to arrive in the mail. Who knows how long that will take with all this other craziness going on.) But I am still affected by the power outages and messed up trains. My office building was down for the count last week, and I finally received word that it is back up on power for tomorrow. However, we will not have heat. The trains are also not 100% back to normal and I hope that they will be by the morning. As they stand now, I will be taking the bus and 3 trains to get downtown instead of my normal bus and train. Still it is better than nothing and I am more than relieved to be heading back to work. Lord knows I need to get back to it. I was already trying to recover from those 2 days I took off for my birthday, now I have to recover from a week not working. Things are going to be tight for the next few weeks. :-/
Aside from all of that, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Things may start to look up for us. Fingers crossed.
Hope you are all doing well, and please stay safe out there.
