another weekend shot

Sunday, December 16, 2012

While I didn't get everything I wanted to do I suppose it wasn't a total loss. I know most all of it is down to my own lack of discipline (for when I wasted a LOT of time when I had nothing planned but could have been doing something more productive). Oh well I am off starting Friday and I hope to exercise like a demon and try to get some projects done. Fingers Crossed.

    It's hard to find the right kind of balance this time of year with all of the holiday stressors. . . emoticon Stay focused!

    We are getting a lot done but it seems like more is piled on our plate all the time. Ugh.

Well today was a sort of a mixed bag for me as I did not get quite done what i had planned although I did do one thing that I had planned and that was to go out for coffee with a fellow I worked with years ago, The bad part was that we sort of had a disagreement over the Vietnam War of all things as he can be sort of opinionated (I suppose it might help to know that he is ethnic Chinese although he lived mostly in England and Canada) . But I think the subject only came up briefly and I just politely nodded and kept my mouth shut- it was one of those things that just aren't worth deep sixing a friendship over (EVEN THOUGH I KNOW I AM RIGHT!! emoticon ) All in all I met him at ten and got home at 2 pm so I spent 4 hours talking about mostly telecom and various other things of mutual interest. It was good to expand my mind after working with simians all week.

    Sounds like he might have a unique perspective from having lived in another region of the world.

    Nice that you had chance to get a cup of coffee outside (Starbucks) is my favorite cafe to go and have some coffee. I usually just have tea at home that's all.

I feel terribly sorry for the families in Connecticut . I heard about it on the local radio this morning. I am having trouble putting alot of my feelings down right now both as a father and as a human being, I know from personal experience that gun control is NOT the panacea some politicians might think it is. A lot of people I know are still contending with the stupid long gun registry that was rammed down our throats in the early 1990s. And you know what - things don't miraculously get better- the bad guys can still get guns. And the good guys get a opportunity to become criminalized .

    Yes I can recall years ago how Reagan sent out the mental patients from the hospitals. Pitiful.

    No amount of school security seems to be enough either. Seems that STILL no one really believes it could happen at their school.

    I totally agree about gun control. The guns are not the problem. It's the people who are using them. These people are mentally ill and for years our method of dealing with mentally ill people is to give them some pills and ignore them. This method does not work and never will.

I am not sure if I overdid it or perhaps I am just out of shape but I did notice my shoulders hurt a bit today . But I still have to shovel the walks etc so I gotta make this a short one.

    I felt my neck and shoulders too from shoveling the past few days. It was a heavy wet snow in MN.

    I raked leaves a lot today so my back is screaming too. Hubby is rubbing it for me.

    I would appreciate if you would do my weight lifting for me as well. I'm tired and cranky - totally not into it. LOL. emoticon
