Didn't care. 
One step at a time.  Wrapping up a semester at (night) school.  Executed a $300,000 stream and wetland restoration contract at work.  Waiting on a permit to start construction of a wetland and stream project that my boss and I have been working on for three years (in different capacities). Getting ready for Christmas, and getting ready for late waterfowl season.   My energy level, alertness, and overall will to live continue to improve.

Other struggles loom ahead - one with my medical insurer, over the costs associated with treating my pneumonia (never thought I'd have to defend antibiotics as "necessary").  Others with work (getting ready to request bids on at least one project), and others yet with the usual stresses involved with different groups of family members rolling into town.   And plenty of others.

=) Glad you are feeling better, and you and yours got to hang out in nature. =)

Big or small, all those plants and animals (and bacteria, fungi, etc.) are in DIRE need of anything you can create for them, so It All Counts! =) Go go go!!

Glad to hear you're on the mend. Sorry to hear the insurance companies still have policies created by aliens.
