Walking to Mom's house in a year challenge -- Day 3
I'm off to an embarrassing start. Only 1 mile on Monday. I let an inconvenient change in plans by daughter number 2 derail my evening walk. Not her fault. I'm in charge. Yesterday it rained and I only got in one mile then as well.
I se... Read more
Walking to Mom's house in a year challenge -- Day 1
One thing my lack of progress this year has taught me, is that I work best with a clear measurable goal. Last year, it was walking in my first 5k. Now I don't know how much of a walk it takes to get to your Mom's house, but according to Google... Read more
A view of the world from behind my eyelids
Thanks Mav. That was an awesome thought. I finished up my last part-time shif last night. It was nothing but anti-climactic. Thursday tends to be a relatively slow night. By the end of my shift, I was surrounded mostly by relatively new hir... Read more
Catching up and the end of the Geek Squad
So much since I took time to linger here. First, morning walks with J have resumed. You might think that recovering from sleep depravity would be incompatible with getting up at 4:30 in the A.M. to walk a quick (relatively) mile, and you woul... Read more
When is a goal not a goal?
I know I said yesterday that getting more sleep was a goal. Truthfully, it was more of a wish. PLMitch commented that it was a good goal, and it made me think..."I really didn't make a goal of it." Well, that's going to take some thought and ... Read more
Rested and ready?...Naw
I've been working on the whole sleep thing. Last night was not helpful. Lots of catch up stuff the last two nights, actually. Not terribly strenuous. I got a haircut, did some shopping. Attempted a light repair at home (need to go shopping ... Read more
Extra hours, Good DR visit and "I'll sleep when I'm dead"...or something
First the Doc visit. Doc cancelled a visit late last year when I was to have my blood pressure checked. DW tired of waiting for me to fit a return visit into my busy schedule and made the appointment for me (Thank you Sweetie). End result...m... Read more
It hurts so good...or not so much
It's been quite a while since I had a gym membership, so I knew I'd need to scale things back. Well, I didn't scaled back quite enough. I didn't injure myself and mostly experienced that discomfort that comes from first using unused muscles. ... Read more
Spring Cleaning and trading Netflix for 'The Gym'
I've never been one for New Year's resolutions. I don't keep them, so I don't bother. Now I'm having some wonderful convergences. My hours have been cut at my part-time job. That comes right as my need for fuel oil is falling off. I'm incred... Read more
S.A.D and an introspection on passion
Oh my, wasn't that a catchy title. OK, not my best, but I've been introspective over the last few days, so there ya go.
S.A.D. I wonder how long someone worked to come up with that one. Seasonal Affective Disorder. We used to call that ... Read more
Job interview, NSV and a pet peeve
I've been employed long enough now to be eligible to apply for seniority promotions (without going through the civil service testing system). I had my first interview and it was a total bust. As we were going through the int... Read more
Catching up, peddling and remember your clocks
Thanks for all the warm birthday wishes and encouraging comments. It was quiet, and that's all I'm really up for these days. Sorry to hear about those who don't enjoy them. I don't make a big fuss, but as is evidenced by the fact that I annou... Read more
Birthday reflection - 500 miles?!
I'm not normally one to spend a lot of time reflecting on the past. It's called the past for a reason. Still, sometimes it's good to see how far we've come and birthday's can be as good a reason to do that as any. Last year this time, I was a... Read more
What are you doing under there?
Last weekend I was in the mood for something funny and ran across a video by Ken Davis. I've never heard him for more than 30 seconds (he does a daily radio blurb). Very funny and I didn't have to be embarrassed to watch in front of my daughte... Read more
Look Out Geek Squad and, Adding a Little Perspective
Well, a surprise second interview later, I have my second job. I'm feeling less sorry for myself than I did when I applied. Getting a job offer is always affirming, even if you don't want the job. The new job shouldn't affect my morning walks... Read more
