Optimism Feels Good

Friday, May 31st, 2019 No comments

Another busy month. Busy is good, right?

I’m having fun with the dogs. Max is settling in nicely. He finally seems comfortable sleeping in the bedroom with Reese and myself this week. Reese’s leg bothers him sometimes, so I’ve tried not to do anything too strenuous with him. He started limping a little bit last month, but it’s been a while since he’s had any trouble walking as far as I can tell. Fingers crossed. I want to take both of them to some events soon.

I’m dealing with an algae bloom in the saltwater tank. I don’t think I even mentioned here that Xander and I set up one in January. It’s more expensive and more work, but I think it’s worth it. This weekend I’m doing more work on it and cleaning out the filters in all 3 tanks.

I don’t know if the weather getting better has anything to do with it, but I feel so optimistic right now. Life is pretty good. I’ve spending a lot of time with great friends and I’m constantly meeting new people. Work is good. My dogs are good. I got a promotion and a big raise recently. I’m catching up on a lot of things wasn’t making time for before. I think this is going to be a great summer.

I’m So Tired

Saturday, August 26th, 2017 No comments

I’m so tired.

Politics. The President is constantly doing and saying terrible things.  The constant outrage over what he’s doing is also getting to me.  If it’s not the President being terrible, it’s Congress.

I’m so tired.

I know that sometimes I try to do too much and I feel like I have to be doing something every minute of the day. I need to relax more. I don’t sleep enough. There’s always so much to do. Even work has contributed to me not getting enough sleep this past week.

I’m so tired.

I’m still in pretty pitiful shape. It seems like the slightest bit of physical exertion leaves me winded. It’s hard to even take my dog on walks.  I’ve said this before, but I really have to get serious about taking better care of myself, even if I’m never in as good of shape as I was in 2.5 years ago. It’s hard to get into a routine though. There’s so much stuff to do.

I’m so tired.

I just need a little rest.
