Speaking of stamps ... as I feared, I am having to put TWO stamps on each of the 5,000 post cards, nearly doubling the time involved. I am, so far, about 1/4 of the way done ... and am currently taking a "sanity break" from the monotony of peel-stick-flip-peel-stick-flip-peel-sti
I was bummed when downtown ... the bus stop I was waiting at for my return with the stamps was across the street from what had been a favorite restaurant of my Mom's, Michael Foley's Printers Row, which was now half a Chase branch and half a Potbelly sandwich shop ... to add to the bummer of it's disappearance, I also noticed that another very good place, Prairie, had gone from the other corner of the same block. It's getting to the point that the only restaurants that I know are ones that have closed. :-(
I did manage to knock down another book over the past few days, but I'm thinking on holding off on the review until I need to take another break from the postage. I just fired up a pot of coffee, and am hoping to at least get halfway done with this tonight.
I am sore in all sorts of stange places due to the small, but frequent, motions involved in getting the stamps onto the post cards ... I will be very happy when I finally get a chance to schedule a real night's sleep (I've been doing 2-hours here, 2-hours there for the past week or so).
