1 - Today has not been an entire waste; I've cleared off the table beside the bed. It looks nice now, with candles and incense next to the cat's food and water.
2 - Did laundry.
3 - Had a bath today - it was wonderful. It was also an accomplishment because I had to clean the bathtub before I could comfortably use it. [The bathtub is in the downstairs bathroom - I have permission to use it when Harriet is gone]
4 - More images recovered. It is an inconvenient and very boring process, and I'm proud of myself for sticking with it. It looks like the first 63 photos are unrecoverable; the rest have been transferred.
5 - I called mom and had a nice conversation. I asked if she had sent the tea I bought for grandmother (and left at her place so she could send it); it has been received and enjoyed. [If I had not, it still would not have been sent :P)
I'd like to make a few more tries to recover stuff before I format the card. Maybe I'll buy a new one anyway; I've seen them for 200 kroner for 1 GB at some stores. I wish I could find my old 256MB card.
