  Well I did it.
I got the filing for the court done, so that it will be in the mail before the twenty-one day deadline.

I do apologize for being lazy and using the enclosed blog post as a way to update you at same time, but I am really wasted. I typed at least three or four versions of the seven page motion and had to retype a page and a half twice when I accidentally deleted the file. There are no "Are you sure?" pop-ups on this typewriter.

I have plenty of letters to write, and probably owe you a nice long letter too. I plan to do a lot of catching up over the weekend, but then again I only have one full ribbon left, but doubt I could burn a whole ribbon in three days.

I just sent a note to Dad to please order some more ribbons. I am asking him to buy a new print wheel and the actual ribbons from Smith Corona to see if that fixes the somewhat spotty printing I have been getting.

I wonder if typing without the ribbon in place adds additional friction and war and tear to printwheel? It is only plastic, and I have certainly been pounding out lots of letters from the poor little wheel. Even if the lack of ribbon does cause wear and tear it is probably still cheaper than using the ribbon full time.

I do not know if you can get the feeling of amount of work I have to do each day. I am not complaining, and am not really sure where the pressure is coming from. I do not recall feeling so busy while at Club Fed. Yes I always had things to keep me busy, but I do not recall the sense of not being able to keep up?

One thing for sure is the daily subscription of the New York Times. There just is no short cut. I need to read one paper a day or else a backlog instantly develops.

Does my letter writing take longer now, since I am working more at proof reading it? Even though I can not type between 11 PM and 10 AM, I can still do reading and other tasks during those hours. Yeah catching some sleep falls into that time too.

I was walking at least an hour or so each day at Club Fed. Just do not quite understand, but hope it is that I am really doing more truly constructive, result producing "stuff" and it takes time to create. More to come.
