Been a busy day, and I can’t let it drag out for much longer. I have been waking up later for several days now. I feel a little bad about it because it makes it harder to get some of this stuff done, especially the parts that require a little isolation. But I’ve also been feeling a little less tired. Anyway, here’s the rundown.
Tried to get this done while waiting for Theo to fall asleep, which meant I dozed myself (maybe I am still tired). It’s not nearly as effective this way. I don’t think just after waking or just before sleeping is the way to go.
More running around with Theo, with a few pushups thrown in. I was pretty active today even though I didn’t do much formal exercise. I’m going to let that count even though I feel a little crummy about it.
- I’m grateful for charcoal and barbecue pits and their ability to cook meats.
- I’m grateful that the thunderstorm this morning was only here for the morning, allowing for a mostly sunny and not too hot day.
- I’m grateful that latex paint can so easily be wiped off linoleum and washed down the sink.
The weekends are extra tough on this one because I don’t often see anyone except my own family. And while I have no issue with being kind to them, I don’t feel like it counts necessarily. So, I sent another random email to someone I respect thanking them for their work.
I spend quite a while today looking for the hardware for the crib. Putting it together was one of the things I definitely wanted to accomplish today, and I was starting to get the sinking feeling that not only was it not going to happen, but maybe we would have to order replacement hardware. From a cursory search, it looks like that would have been between $50 and $100, and who knows how long it would’ve taken to get here. In the end, I found the hardware in an unexpected place and proceeded to assemble the crib without too much angst. It was a positive experience because I never lost my patience through the whole thing.
And happy Saturday night.
