Pain and Tedium

Share this post via email


My pinkie is on strike.

I've spent much of today copying and pasting stuff from the 2011 Catalog onto the website (which you'll be able to see April 1, Lord willing). And, due to the layout of QWERTY keyboards, it's a rather long stretch between the Control key and x, c and v (cut, copy, paste). Most days I don't even notice the distance, but after several hours my little finger began to complain.

It's now refusing to press any key.


Copy/paste isn't completely mindless (which is why my computer can't do it for me). Unfortunately, it's not exactly creative work either. It's tedious technical work. And while we continue to get closer to overcoming the tedious aspect of some tasks, there is still much work to be done.

Westley is right: People sell solutions to remove pain and tedium. That's one of the things we work so diligently to give you: A homeschool experience you love where you have everything you need ready for you. You get all your homeschool materials scheduled, notated, planned, prepared and packaged.

What painful/tedious task(s) have you worked on today?
