Journal Entry for Aug 21, 2014

My sleep did not go well last night.  Was restless most of the evening.  Trying again tonight, but it’s later than I wanted it to be.

It was nice running and building friendships with the people of the running club.

She’s fine.  A little bruising around the neck from the seat belt.

Car “might” be totaled.  :-\

And totaled or not, there’s going to be a deductible.  More money I don’t have.

Not much else to say tonight.

FREAKIN’ YAY!  I finally got it so I can log into WordPress through Firefox!  I had to delete all my cookies, but that’s fine.  I imported my cookies from Chrome anyway, so some were probably screwed up.  I was almost ready to give up on Firefox over this little issue.

Anyway, it’s been a productive day.  Went to church, mowed the lawn (which was miserable, hot work), washed the dishes and dried the towels.  The biggest thing I did was finally work with Camilla’s budget document.  I found a rather major error there.  It was around $400 on the previous document and around $500 on the current.  The spreadsheet was taking from the monthly gross rather than the monthly total after taxes.  It turns out that my regular expenses net me about $74 a month. Not gonna get an apartment with that kind of money.

Well, it was a big to-do item, and that’s out of the way now.

So all in all a good day.

Didn’t get enough sleep last night, and it kinda reflects a down-ish thing.  Not as hyper as I was.  Just tired.  Ran a 10k tonight, way too sweaty.  Exhausting.  My shirt must have been 2 pounds heavier from the sweat alone.  I got a lot of stuff done, I just can’t remember most of it.

Meh.  This post is kinda a rambling mess.  Better quit while I’m ahead.

So far the only thing I can’t do in Firefox is post new messages to this blog, and I haven’t a clue why yet.  Seems like a common problem but all the solutions don’t work.  I’ll get it sooner or later.

Good thing?  I’m able to SL and write AT THE SAME TIME!!  Very little lost in the process.

Other good things?  Polished the sink, swept and mopped the floors, emptied the dishwasher, swish and swiped the bathroom, and worked out a method for cleaning all the microfiber things that need cleaning.  Still have to test that though.

Not too much to complain about today.  Just a good day all round.

I am a touch hungry though.

NANA!

Later,

The best thing that happened to me today is that I somehow managed to avoid a major backslide with just about everything.

4 or 5 hours of sleep last night, combined with a generalized depression over my disappointment with my date, conspired to push me over an edge into bleakness.  Somehow this evening I managed to avoid the food triggers and make myself do the things I knew needed to be done.  I will have all but one thing accomplished on my Lift list for today.  Yesterday I failed to do many, and I broke some streaks I didn’t want to break.  Today, I will start those streaks over again, and I’ll keep that up until this shit stops.

G’night, oh my many followers,

Very good day. I managed to get through a Kaylee lunch for less than the $20 I allotted for it, and I was able to keep my points at good levels too. I trimmed the bushes in the backyard, got the dishwasher going, and even cleaned the bead boards in the kitchen. Kinda a day when everything went according to plan. Very pleased.

Oh, and my new tablet shipped! That means that I’ll get it almost certainly next week. They haven’t posted an arrival time yet, but that’ll happen soon. 🙂

Very sleepy peace out.

It’s kinda nice just kinda sitting out here on my porch doing the whole journal posting thing. This in itself could count as the day’s great experience. There’s a bit too much traffic on Oxford and people never do a full stop at the stop signs, but I suppose I’d get used to that after a while. It’s a pleasant night…not too cool, not too warm. I’m out here with my Corona Light and kinda interacting with the real world as I do whatever it is I do on this computer out here.

Ellena is still stuck where she was…I haven’t gone back to write yet and I haven’t worked out what her difficulty would be in my head yet. It’s going to be too cool to be out here much longer and work out her problems, or work her into them, as the case may be.

Another “great” experience I guess would be that I got the printer to connect wirelessly to the network, which means I can roll up the long blue cable from hell sooner or later. At least I got it to print one test page and another non-test page without difficulty, so I’m declaring it a success.

I took my mom to the cardiologist and he told her that there was absolutely nothing wrong with her EKG and that her circulation is excellent. He thinks that the pain that she’s having may be related to her tooth problem that they won’t fix. While her teeth do not hurt (the roots are dead), the damned things are causing enough problems throughout the rest of her body that I think that they should def be pulled.

Back to the cardiologist, he’s going to have her do one of those treadmill stress tests. She’s not worried about it and neither am I.

Enough for now,

Early morning in Frankenmuth.

We had a nice day yesterday.  Of course, we ate WAY too much.  Such is life in this town.

Did some shopping but didn’t buy much.  We found a shop called the Enchanted Forest that was full of Fairies and Mermaids and other fanciful creatures.  Scarily Second Life-ish.  Princess wanted to buy out the whole store.

I don’t understand the purpose of king-sized beds.  They are so large that you can lose your partner in it.  Oh well.  I guess some people like it that way.

Nothing much to say really.  Just felt like typing.  Reminding everyone to find the joy.  It is ALWAYS there, somewhere.
