I feel like I basically got nothing done in January because I was sick through most of it--one of those awful colds where you just keep coughing and coughing and not getting any rest because you're coughing so much. Thankfully, it's now gone.

Questions re: calling your members of Congress: Does it matter if you call during business hours, or is voicemail left after hours okay? And if they've already made a statement on something, is there a point to calling about that issue?

I have also started doing stuff for one of my local Indivisible groups \o/! I still need to look into more cybersecurity stuff as well. And I am doing that thing where I am reading way too much news. Some of it is necessary for volunteer work, and some of it is useful for work, but I really do not need to be refreshing five sites all the time, along with my personal social media accounts. I tried setting up something like Flipboard or another aggregator, but it feels a bit disorienting. I like being on the news provider's website and getting a better sense of their style and what they report on and etc. I suppose once I've figured it out for many sites, the aggregator will make more sense.

Janni is hip-deep in our local Indivisible group, and has even (v. briefly) appeared on local TV news coverage of events.

(In order to spread what bandwidth we have, I'm working on the climate change angle instead.)

De nada.

I have to focus my efforts on just two or three key issues -- I just don't have the resources to do more (*glances at preschooler*) -- and that was one that was getting lost amid other (also important) hooplahs. They have good training resources for budding lobbiests, as it turns out.
