The next time I tell myself to “pick a lane,” be sure to pick a lane that doesn’t have oncoming traffic! (Fortunately, I’m speaking figuratively, but I am feeling run down today nevertheless.)

And That’s What’s Really Going To Matter For The Next Few Days

August 12, 2021

So how am I doing? (Aside from being annoyed at life, I mean.)

As I predicted/feared . . . I don’t know.

Some of my signs are good, and some of my signs, while not bad, are decidedly less good, so I think I’m almost fully recovered, but I’ve been there before, you know?

If nothing else, I’m well enough to get us prepped for our first Tropical Storm of the season, so there is that.

After A While Even The Lack Of Routine Becomes Routine

April 27, 2021

Recently someone correctly divined that things are hectic around here again, and they expressed their concern about that. Now I’ve been guilty on many occasions of putting a brave face on things, but this time I truly meant it when I shrugged and said, “We’ve been far more overwhelmed than this and come through okay, so I suspect we’ll be fine.”

My Thought Process For The Day

July 13, 2020

Let’s see . . . I could do a light-hearted entry to let people know that I’m feeling a little better today, or I could do something more introspective to let them know that I’m still processing the news I learned last week.

. . . Or I could say what I just said to myself and cover all the bases.

And If You’ve Only Just Now Gotten That Song Out Of Your Head, You’re Welcome

This is the work that never ends; yes, it goes on and on my friends . . .

So I’m Not Dwelling On It

October 24, 2018

As I said on Monday, the construction/remodeling work here isn’t quite done yet, but it’s close enough to being done that if I dwell on it, it’s maddening that it’s not done yet.

How Things Are Here

October 15, 2018

Obviously things are better here than many places in the United States right now, but with that said . . . things aren’t good here.  Yes, the construction work is almost done, but nerves are shot (Homeschooling and home reconstruction . . . not a good combination!), and it feels like my nerves are especially shot.  So much so that I know a couple of people are actively worried about me.

For the record, I’m pretty sure I’m fine (or will be, at least), but if you catch my meaning here, I’m not not worried about me either, so I’m doing my best to reinforce the various aspects of my health (physical, mental, and emotional).  I will make it through this.

Gracelessly, I suspect, but I’ll make it.

Status Update

September 25, 2018

Okay, update time:

This week we’re into what should be the final “big push” on the construction project around here, and the stress is getting to all of us.  Even so, we seem to be doing better this week than last week.

On way or the other, I’ll let you know if that changes.

How Are Things Going? Well . . .

September 11, 2018

Last week I learned how to move 2/3rds of my house into the remaining 1/3rd while using 1/2 of my usual number of fully functional feet, so that was unfun . . .

Status For 8/10/12

August 10, 2012

As it turns out, it didn’t take me all day on the 7th to go over the next story for the website after all, but I’m still glad I managed to get the necessary help to set the time aside.

Even after all this time, I still don’t ask for help well.

But I’m learning.
