It's Sunday. Everything is calm and quiet around the house. The kids are quietly watching TV and being good. I think I shall have a cup of coffee and then go back to sleep for a bit. Then, if all is still peaceful when I wake, I will finish the book I've been reading and then go sit on the porch and enjoy the rain. I think this is going to be a good day.
Parker Solar Probe going up tomorrow! Ideally in a controlled manner. I saw the final stage before it was sent off to be incorporated. It's the first space mission I have any sort of connection to. I hope nothing happens to it - not just because of that, but also because it's a really cool, important project.
I wish I was more comfortable with people being angry at me
I should never have had kids, especially late in life. The continuous backtalk and bickering among my teens has led me to utterly understand how some people hit their children. I'm spending a lot of time in my room with the door closed.
