Making progress at least...

July 19, 2007 11:34 AM

Got a lot of stuff moved yesterday and got the TV and surround sound hooked up. Not exactly the way I wanted but that’s ok. It’s only until we get a newer TV anyway. Once that happens I can buy a TV with the proper inputs and only have to worry about output to the surround sound system. I could go the way our housemate went and get an expensive Sony receiver that has multiple inputs/outputs and does video switching but I think that’s a little overkill for us right now.

Still more to do at home yet. I got everything on my Wednesday agenda done and started on the Thursday agenda but I’ve got to hold off on buying chairs until tomorrow when I get the money from the credit union account. I’ve got to cash part of that check so I can give our housemate the final cash for the bike I’m buying for a friend. Once that’s done then I’ll pick up two replacement chairs - one for me and one for my daughter.

My daughter is doing well with her home therapy/tutoring and I’m happy about that even if I have to pay extra money. Didn’t expect my wife to write out $120 and pay two sessions right away but I’ve got things in place to handle that well enough.

Need to get back to working on the webcomic again and I need to actually start drawing this time. I realized something the other day after starting yet another webcomic from the beginning - the drawing can be bad to start off. So what that means to me is that I can start drawing and even if it’s simple doodle-like figures it’ll be ok as long as you can follow the story. Unfortunately there is also the problem that quite a bit of the story I’m writing down is visual and depends on things in the background. I think I can do that though.

Still...I really want this to look “right” to me. I should take more time and practice the basics or maybe take a simple drawing class.

I think I’ve got too many things waiting in the queue again. This happens every so often because I can’t bear to give up an idea on something I want to do unless I can give it to someone else that it just fits. Thus I have quite a few ideas and projects in the works at any one time. The worst are the ones I start and can’t devote proper time to. I hate having to break off on a project because of other things. It’s one of the reasons I’m looking so hard for something I can do from home.

I looked at the garage again last night and I’m really overburdened with stuff I have to ship to other people or sell or just get rid of. *sigh* I don’t want to just throw this stuff out but it’s a pain to photograph it, pack it, weigh it, list it, and then ship it. And an E-Bay shipper in my local area would take a significant amount of cut from any money I’d get back.

I need to learn to prioritize better. Maybe I just need to start doing one thing until that’s done then do the next thing. Unfortunately that would leave me with nothing but household chores and landscaping because those things would rotate back around again before I could move onto other things.
