Lisa and I did some electronics-buying errands in the Bay Area, including picking up a used monitor that will replace the smaller of the two monitors on my desk. (Lisa will get that monitor, which will upgrade her starting-to-fail monitor on her laptop docking station.) We then made our laborious (due to the massive amount of traffic) was out of the Bay Area. We stopped in Lathrop at the auto-parts store where I'd made the emergency stop a few months back with the burning alternator, and we bought a new fire extinguisher for the van, so I'm not caught out if something that bad happens again. Lisa drove from Lathrop onward. After visiting my sister in Sacramento, we continued east, and traffic was much easier to handle. I was so fried that Lisa handled the rest of the drive home. We arrived home in Fernley just before 10 PM. Lisa headed for bed, and I'll be going to same way shortly after I set plug in the backup drive to do its weekly complete system image. We're not worrying about alarms or anything like that tomorrow. I'm really glad I get to spend the next two weeks at home, and that I don't have to work on Monday.
