Classy Business

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 12:21 AM

This was a busy, busy week. It takes a few weeks to arrange work so that I can accomplish it effectively while also taking a full-time load of classes (for those tuning into asisaid since last May: why am I taking classes?). Fortunately, my clients did not have too many problems this week, so that made everything a bit easier than it would have been otherwise.

The good is that the courses all look interesting. The bad news was that this week was one of the warmest of the summer and not all of the classrooms have a/c (chalk that up to nearly one hundred year old buildings). Going from an air conditioned room into one that is “enjoying” a 110 degree (F) heat index isn't much fun (that's 43 degrees celsius for my non-American friends). The actual temperature was hovering around 95 degrees for several days, but that was compounded by ninety something percent humidity each day. Yes, that's the weather Missouri is infamous for — and for good reason!

Today, I am sore. My uncle, who lived with my grandmother for most of his life has bought a condo now that my grandmother is in a nursing home, and I spent the day at the condo helping clean things up and with various other tasks needed to get the place ready for him to move in. He just closed on the place yesterday. It's a nice place — it was a display home when the complex was first built, so it has a lot of neat options that normally wouldn't be on a home in his price range.

Hopefully he can move in next weekend — I know he's looking forward to having “his own place.” :-)

I thought I had commented here…

I think I asked what classes are you taking and from where?

The answer is in the next post — I figured a new post was in order to answer that.
