Okay maybe I’m exaggerating but I still have caught my daughter’s cold. I’ve been blowing my nose all day and I’m damn tired. Hopefully taking Friday off will help me get over that.
I need to get back on track. I’m getting some of the stuff done that I need to but I’ve let other things slip. Important things like cleaning and my health. In particular I’ve stopped eating properly except for lunch. I need to get back on track with that. I think even though it will cause a problem between me and my wife I’ll start eating my steamed vegetables again every day that I come home. That seemed to help my energy level quite a bit and I didn’t feel so bloated all the time.
I think I will also take the money out of the Credit Union account to buy a family membership to the YMCA. That’s actually the cheapest and most useful health membership for me and my family. It can also be a yearly fee instead of a monthly one. That I can easily work out how to handle. And there are a lot of YMCAs around the world that we can go to. The fee for all of this will likely be steep but well worth it. Especially if it lets me visit a YMCA during non-peak hours where I don’t feel so exposed. Unfortunately it means buying workout clothes. I wonder if there’s a membership that covers fitness instructors. Any motivation and a plan would be a great help.
Yesterday was a pain in the ass. I had to stay home and wait for FedEx to deliver a package. The one time in a millennia that they actually obeyed the signature required note. :-( I couldn’t even do much of anything around the house for fear of missing the delivery. And of course it didn’t show up until 1:30 p.m. which made it far too late to go into work. So instead of taking Thursday and Friday off of work I took yesterday as a vacation day, even though I did some things remotely for some people, and will take Friday off.
Speaking of vacation days I think I’ll push my wife to have vacation time during the week of our anniversary. Oh..wait..she’ll likely be doing childcare by that time. :-(
So likely no more romantic getaways after June of this year. That sucks bigtime because I really did want to re-connect with my wife. *sigh* I hope this childcare thing works out but if it doesn’t we’ll have to apply for respite care for our daughter and I really don’t want to do that.
*sigh* I feel so behind on everything right now. I’ve got recording to do. Monkey and I have to do the Skype sound-check. I’ve got to finish at least the complete design for the signal-canceling circuit if not the programming. I have to get the house cleaned up and organized so I can focus on the outside this year. I have to finish re-wiring my bike. I have to repair the one LCD monitor’s CCF backlight so I don’t have to spend $150 on a new monitor. I have to replace the fish tank and the fish. (I wish I could just kill the damn thing but I can’t bring myself to do that for some reason.)
And there’s a number of house repairs that need to be done as soon as we can get them done. The tile and flooring in the bathroom. Cleaning and sealing the deck. Pressure-washing the house. Planting things in the empty garden plots. Cleaning up any remaining leaves and putting down fresh mulch. Getting a price for putting the electric on a pole rather than attached to the back of the house and getting them to do it. Having someone take the box-elder trees down. Getting the driveway patched and re-sealed.
*sigh* A lot of stuff....
