Today was a “pain and agony” day.
It was good pain and agony, though. The ol’ Soloflex slogan comes to mind: No Pain, No Gain. Of course, I’m not talking about working out. However, I worked my eyeballs and fingers to the bone to the point of getting an eye stress headache.
Susan, my former receptionist, finished proofreading and returned my Advent/Christmas daily reflections yesterday. Today, I sent the files to the people who will be preparing the booklets for distribution to the parishioners. Then, I sat down at my computer and input them into the blog software so that they auto-generate each day throughout Advent and Christmas. I also copied them to Eudora (my email program) so that they auto-mail to the mailing list. Then, I put them into the Facebook page to auto-publish throughout the season.
That was a lot of focusing on the computer monitor and dancing my fingers across the keyboard. Needless to say, the eyestrain gave me a headache but that was accompanied by a great sense of accomplishment.
And that, my friends, is why they make Tylenol! 🙂
