Some Days.

You never know what will happen in a day. Yesterday I got pretty silly. Just having fun. You pretty much want to enjoy your lives. Be silly,  have fun. Live without a care in the World.

How can you?  You as a person are supposed to do this and that. Socially accepted norms mean you must do this and that.  You want to do this and that though. You want to be silly, have fun. You also want to feel good, have a lot of energy, and wake up rested.

I could give you the secret to life,  but I can't. I am not the author of my story. So many days of mine were hard. My path was one of learning. I learned a lot. I guess what I learned is how helpless I am.

All the avenues of me is pure and simple folly. That is where you are now I guess. You want to pave your stairway to heaven with good works, and also you want to show people your paved road you have started.  

It means nothing. Everything we have done doesn't mean anything. I currently am sitting with points while all others are being shut out. The road I made I didn't. I was led along blindly. You don't know the suffering I've endured to get points, but one does. For some reason it is pleasing to him my path is solo. Hidden from all. Also it is how it's always been where one gets the message. Delivers it cuz that is their purpose. Their job if you will. It is ingrained in their heart. Their labor is not from them,  like mine is not from me.

Our message we bring from elsewhere does not get received. Hearts turn hard, cuz they want their life. They want to show people their greatness. You want to show people your stairway to heaven.

Also is it possible to bring happiness and contentment out of nothing?  The World was made out of what was once nothing. What great deeds will you do? 

We are pretty insignificant huh? 

Okee doke. Just getting something down.

I think it's raining.

Cya.

A Difference In A Week.

Some things remained the same as I had stuff to do after work on Monday. That is 3-4 weeks straight. Typically I have nothing to do after work. We got our taxes done,  and set up our roof.

First off I wanted to say I have been bundled with energy this past weekend, and beginning of this week. Last week I was tired I definitely will take the energy and the part of feeling great.

As to our roof running a roofing business is not easy. He has to pull permits,  set up delivery of supplies, do the estimate, hire employees,  payroll and whatnot. You never really think of that shit.

Anyway we are  all set up. Good to go as it were. Taxes are done. Fine for no HC is close to $700 this year. Next year will be closer to $1000. That fine really is a tax on the poor. I doubt rich people go without HC. In my opinion the problem is insurance in general. Very inefficient.

People with insurance with low co pays probably go to the Dr. for every little thing.   I haven't been to a Dr. in forever. I am healthy. Insurance = incentive for waste.  You show me someone working in the insurance industry, and I'll show you someone who spends a good deal of time in a cubicle. Looking at computer screens,  and talking on phones. Maybe eating donuts by the water thingy.

I think higher education is a waste now too. You going to go in house size debt to get a cubicle job?   That's dumb. The system is broke. You ain't gonna fix it. You want an education?  Read Catch-22. Laugh, but get mad.

Get a job where you are on your feet. Don't go into high debt. Enjoy your years if you are able. I suspect that enjoy part is out if your hands. A good heart is a good thing to come by, but probably out of our hands. I know the steps I made, and I don't know how I'd be if I didn't do what I did. I suspect not as happy.

The World goes on in its shitty way. People who think they are smart continue to do stupid shit. Rich people who were born that way typically are the stupidest people in the World. They do the most damage too.

Arrogance is an awful thing misplaced. When the arrogant think they are smart when really they are dumb, that is a bad thing.

The World is full of these people. Many times money is what makes the difference in classes. It makes up our hierarchy, and money may be the dumbest thing of all.

Your World though. I have no use for it. I have my day to day. I'll think I'll stay on this route.

That is it for today!!!   :)

The Day Is Before Me.

Good morning. How's it going?   Me, I am good. It is my sleep in day, so I slept in. Kinda. Not sure what today will hold. We got our garage door up. Another thing off the list. Lisa got her new glasses too. Another one off.

Not sure about today.  I looked up movies. I guess that's a possibility,  although leaning against it. I do have a couple things I want to get done. I guess in my mind I have a big list. I should get it down so I can see it. Cross shit off.

Not really sure what to do for dinner. I feel we should try something new. We went out for dinner last night. A day starts with all kindsa possibilities. Rarely if ever do I accomplish what I set out in the morning. You can imagine how I am in the morning. Ready to go, but I am active every day. I don't sit down til I am done with work. I do eventually lose steam.

I will say this. I like the direction our house is going. We are getting shit done,  and Spring is upon us. So that's good.

Other than that I guess I'll drink my coffee. Take Hope for a walk,  and have a day. There will be dinner at the end of it.

Cya later.  :)

I Think Spring Is Here

The 10 day has one high of 48°, and the rest in the 50°s or higher. We are close to getting everything done we wanted help with. Garage door goes in today. Our roof guy comes out to look at our roof. We have to do some fence repair in back. Hope is an ass. He's trying to eat his way out. Really we just need to make it taller. 10' posts instead of 8'  it will make our fence 7' high. She can't jump that high. We'll cement them too. The original owner didn't.  We also want to paint our house. Change out a couple windows. Finish up the basement. A lot to do still.

The basement is all framed and insulated. We never finished the walls. I did the ceiling, but don't like it, so we took it down. I'll be busy, and I like to be lazy. 

It is Springtime though. Everything is new again. The season has changed, and once again everything looks different.  That is what Midwest living is.

Anyhoo,  enough about me. Not really though. Am I to talk of you?  I don't even know you. I know me. I know this World. I know my little life here. I know it has an end. In the end I did have a purpose. The reason I am here is what I will finish. My job will be done.

It wasn't what I expected, and it wasn't what I planned.   Left to my own devices from way back when who knows?  I know  I wasn't perfect,  and my life would have been pretty Fucked up.

My life still isn't perfect cuz I am not. Not yet. I know the human experience though having been one. I was taken abruptly out of the World long ago, and I saw it for what it is. I saw people's lives all dressed up. I know people's inside thoughts though,  and we don't want to show that.

Why?  Cuz we all are Fucked up, and we only want to show a dressed up version of ourself. The World overpowers in that way. People judge. The World judges, and none are strong enough to stand up to it.

If you knew now the folly of life you would wish you did something different. Was on a different route. You were always going to be tangled into your life. No one escapes that. Only way out of your dilemma is a turn. The turn is blind. A blind turn eventually helps you see. Through the eye of the needle the log gets removed. This is out of your power.

A strong person needs no help. A strong person is foolish.

Anyway. Today will be a good day. We are getting shit done.

Cya.   :)

The Things That Are On My Mind.

That title is kinda a joke, cuz not much is on my mind. Yesterday was okay as far as days go. I worked,  and had dinner. There really isn't anything of real importance I thought about. Just doing my day to day. The days come. I typically don't get everything done I want after work,  but I have dinner, and I sleep.

Pretty simple really. Yet my days are never perfect. When you live in my head there isn't much of anything that is so grand it is very important. Life is a big thing in our mind, but it's not important.  It's just something we do cuz for some reason we are here.

We didn't choose to be born. We didn't choose which Country we would be born in. Most, probably all, besides me never threw everything away. Country,  upbringing, teaching we've been taught from the World. Why are you here? 

In a World that offers nothing I guess that is a good place to start. I am going to have a day today. I am sure people will post stuff they think is significant to make it seem their life matters. It doesn't.

We've been preceded by trillions. We aren't better, and we aren't smarter. I am the only one who knows this though. Everyone else thinks they are better and are smarter.

We're just humans. Gross really. We all have a bunch of shit that pops up in our head. If we wanted a head that had perfect thoughts it isn't in our power. You are a slave to all the shit that pops up in your head.

In a World where you think you are master you are not. We are just humans living an imperfect life. No life was better way back when. We aren't better either.

This World is a crazy and insignificant thing. Those of this World can't see it. You have to step out to look at it objectively. You cannot be a part of it if you want to see it.

Anyway.

I'll cya.

It Don't Take Much To Disappear

Good morning How's it going?   Me, I am fine. I kinda disappeared from this thing for a bit. It mostly had to do with sleeping in. From staying up too late to not sleeping as good as normal, I slept in.

Even today I was sleeping pretty hard, and having crazy dreams, and my early alarm went off. My first thought was to maybe sleep in again,  but I was done sleeping.

You would think for not blogging in a while I'd have a lot to say. You'd be wrong. :)  You know my crazy life.

We are pretty busy though, and that may be a reason for me sleeping in. Last week I had stuff to do all week. Got my truck fixed. My brake line was bad, and it needed replacing. Then my brake lights didn't work. One side was just the bulb,  and the other the wire. I did replace the socket, but it didn't work. My mechanic came over, and replaced the wire.

I thought he charged me too little last time so I gave him an extra $40. He thought I was too generous so he didn't charge me for redoing the wire.  :)  We have another big job coming up for him on our white car.

I got a flat on the way home yesterday too on my bike so I have to replace the tube.

See my life is pretty interesting. Also Friday we are getting a new garage door put on,  and we are going to get a new roof soon. We have a lot to do this year.

So,  life goes on. I ain't doing anything real important in my day to day. The day to days keep coming though.

Anyhoo, I guess that's good.

Later.  :)

It Is Rarely, Perhaps Never Light Out At 3:00 AM

As long as I've been doing this I don't recall it ever being light out at 3:00 AM. I am getting old though so not sure how much I would count on my memory.

Anyway. How's it going?   Me, I am doing good. We got our new fridge yesterday so that's cool. Ours was done. Toast as it were. Nice to have a good functional one for the next 8-12 years. Our other one lasted probably a decade give or take.  It feels good to get that done.

Not much else going on with me. Just day to day things that occupy my time. It is like I do work. A couple things here and there. Dinner at some time and then sleep.

I have a feeling most people put some type of value in our day to day labor. It's just shit we do. We have to make money, and live somewhere. It's the way of the World. You have to be a part of the World to live in it. It just so happens no points come from your labor you do in the World.  No matter how hard you try. It matters to you in a way, but in the end it doesn't.

Life is full of hard truths few find out about. I found out about them. My life was set apart to learn these things. Then I was supposed to teach these things. What I've done has fallen on deaf ears so we went in the wilderness. In the wilderness hearts are cold. No one really cares. There is no meaning anywhere really. Nowhere to get a foot hold. In the wilderness I become very much indifferent to a lot. Especially when people place value where there is none. All our guilty.

I was too. Don't worry. We all are guilty thinking we and our lives are important. It is just time we are putting on this Earth. People rack up their trophies, and diolomas, and accepted things we gather from other people. Compliments and smiles.

Life is a hard hard thing cuz we were born here wrong. It takes much to make us right and better. It also is out of our power to do it too.

Perhaps the worst curse is being born in this World,  cuz it takes much to overcome our lot. I have overcome my trials with help. I would not have made it on my own. Others haven't even done anything. Once again I cannot help you at all. You have to make the right steps, and I know your tough position.

If everything is wrong than you have a pretty doozy of a Web. That is known. Everything is possible,  but not left to your own devices. Then pretty much nothing is in the important things.

You have to take the trip. You have to be willing even if your heart is scared and unsure.

I am glad I did my shit early and long ago. Where you stand now is hard. That much I know.

Anyway. Today will be another day.

Should be fun.

Cya.   :)

Why Is Thing So Hard?

Good morning. How's it going?   Me, I am fine. I had no idea for a title so this may be another nothing post.

Yesterday was okay. Work went good. I came home, and hooked up our new desktop. I had to pick up the cord. I bought a couple new pair of jeans. It's been a few years, and a couple have worn out. I have lost weight over those few years, cuz I probably could have dropped a size or two in the waist. Oh well I have a belt.

The new desktop is new for us. Lisa's daughter has one laying around collecting dust, do we bought it for  $150. I am not sure how much we'll use it. Lisa uses the tablet,  and I pretty much just use the phone,  but we will have it. Screen is much bigger than the phone. :)

Lisa went out with friends so I made salmon for myself. I slept early again too. I slept good too like the night before. I know I sleep good if I wake up at 11:00, and feel it may be time to get up. But I potentially have several more hours to sleep. Oh course today I didn't use all those hours. I got up early.

So I guess yesterday was a day. Today will be one too. We get our new fridge delivered today. A lot of shit to do after work this week. That kinda sucks. Now I know how the rest of you live.  :)  horrible. :)

Okee doke

I'm out.

Laterzzzzzz.   :)

A Good Night Sleep.

The weekend my sleep kinda got out of whack. I lost an hour on Sunday, and I go in at 5:00 AM. We were working on my truck til it was getting dark. It gets darker later. All of a sudden it is 9:00, and I haven't eaten dinner. Then I didn't sleep that great. Last night however I slept great. I went to bed early, and I feel great today.

I have to run a couple errands today, so I'll drive. That's about it. Not much else going on.

I find more and more my life is less and less important. I keep doing my daily thing which has to bore you to tears. That may sound bad or something I don't know, but I am cool. I am fine with my simple and boring day to day.

When I was younger I kinda seeked for a purpose to my life,  and in the end I found it. So I will do things of some importance, but the simple truth is I am not important. These days my life is pretty simple.

I know how I am, and I know kinda how you are. Some anyway. Hearts don't really lie, but we don't like to look at the truth our hearts tell us. They aren't perfect. Some are filled with anger, and lust, jealousy,  and more.

You cannot take the imperfection out of your heart. So you block it out of your sight, and dress it up in accepted societal norms.

The heart is the key,  but you are afraid to look,  let alone show.

The tough things you have no desire to do. I get it kinda. I think. Who knows?  I did my stuff long ago.

What I found is if there is a good person it wasn't me. I looked in the mirror,  and I wasn't as good as I would have liked. That too is your story for those willing to face the truth.

Look around at your friends. They are in the same boat as you. Your family too. Ya gotta fix yourself before you can help others. This would have been easier solo,  but life is a tangled mess for everyone.

The route is possible for all. It also is not easy for all too.  There you are in the same boat as everyone else too.

Anyway. In my bracket this year I think I had NC winning it all. I may have someone else if I do another. MI I had in the sweet 16 and dropping out,  but they could be a sleeper maybe.

Anyway, I gotta go.

Have fun.  :)

Cya.   :)

Some Days I Have No Title.

Usually if that is the case I think I should have no blog either,  but you know me. I still can give it a whirl. To keep your spreadsheets accurate yesterday I didn't have coffee,  but today I am. I'll wait a minute if you want to update your spreadsheets now.

Okay, now where were we?  Ahhh yes. The blog. Yesterday I had a day. I worked my 8 hour shift. Our mechanic came out and replaced our brake line, but we still need to bleed the front brakes today. The ABS light came on, and he feels it's still not right. The mechanic is thorough, and reasonably priced. A quote for the work he does is an avg of what most shops would charge divided by two. He's cheap, and a nice guy.

Anyway that was about the extent of my day. I finished 3 more Pendergast books this week, and started a 4th. Those will be done soon, so I have to go back to the Game Of Thrones books. There are 17 Pendergast novels. The characters in those books are great.

Other than that not much. Today will be another day, and that's that.

I should have not given it a whirl. This one is dumb. 

Oh well.

Laterzzzzzz.  :)

Just Like That It Is 3 In A Row

Good morning. How's it going?   I am fine. I am just sitting here drinking a cup of coffee for the 3rd day in a row. Yesterday we got our big for us check, and we bought a new fridge. They'll deliver, install, and take the old one away. It will have an ice maker like our previous one. Our old one is old, and is running out of juice. I think the defrost is messed up. It collects moisture, and water freezes on the bottom. It's time.

Other than that not much going on. You know me and my life. Nothing too exciting. Today will be work,  do some stuff around the house,  and make lasagna for dinner. It's been a while since we've done lasagna. Tomorrow will be work also. Our mechanic is coming out to fix our brakes on the truck. I think it is a main cylinder or something. The brakes just don't stop any more. It happened all of a sudden. He said it shouldn't be too expensive. I'll also schedule him to fix our white car. That we will sell, keep, not sure.

All our bills are up to date, and our next house payment is May 1.  I just have my bakery job money go into my mortgage bank. They'll take out my payment every first of the month. As a side note I make a good amount more at my bakery job than what my mortgage payment is, so it will be a savings account. Our other accounts are the same. We make a good amount more than what needs to be paid out. We live pretty simply so that shouldn't change. We don't travel a lot, cuz that is expensive.

I am happy in my own house. I don't need to go somewhere else to try and relax and be content. Also, I don't really find the World all that interesting. It's just the World. Big deal.

So today will be a day, and tomorrow will be a day. Nothing too crazy.

Anyway, I gotta take Hope. I may have another cup of coffee after too.

Also we went out for dinner. I brought a doggie bag home. I probably ate half my meal. I swear I used to always devour the meal I had last night.

Weird right?  It reminds me of that guy who ate that huge chicken sandwich. No way I could,  and he was going to have dinner some 4-5 hours later. I can't eat that much.

Anyway.

That's it.

I probably won't see you here tomorrow. I lose an hour of sleep.

Cya.  :)

I Am Going To Do The Coffee Thing Again.

Good morning. How's it going?   Me, I am doing good. I decided to have another cup of coffee today. One thing I realize of coffee is it doesn't really give me a jolt. It doesn't really increase my energy at all so I drink it just to drink it. That is probably why I don't drink it every day.

Yesterday was another day. I pretty much just listened to my book after work. I'll probably finish it today. I like listening to books. It means you don't have to just lay down and read. You can actually do other stuff.

I realize I don't write anything of any importance here it seems. There really isn't anything of any importance. We are here for a short time,  and one day it will end. So what is so important? 

In my heart is the wilderness,  and I don't really care. I see life for what it is. The important people are doing things they deem important. Did you ask the tough question?

What if it isn't important?  Then what?  You should deal with that cuz the answer is it isn't.

Anyway, life I have boiled down to work eat sleep. I feel it best if you can do it with a happy heart. I can, and I do. I have nothing but time to do things I want. I don't need any more free time, cuz I have a ton of it.

I had absolutely no idea what life was about in my early years. I had no clue what life would be like today.

I know people are different than me. I kinda wonder what is in your heart. I know it isn't content, and I wonder why and how. I wonder what you feel you are missing.

People are actors. The stuff inside us that isn't content we don't show really. I can sometimes just imagine people's frustration.

Life is a dead end except for one path,  few are willing to take that path. I guess cuz life has so much to offer seemingly.

Anyway. Just jotting stuff down. I'll finish my coffee,  and take the Hopester.

Laterzzzzzz.  :)

Cya.  :)

Oh Wait. I Haven't Had Coffee In A While

I was doing my normal wake up thing, pass the kitchen to the family room when it hit me. I haven't had coffee in a while. Last week maybe?  So I made myself a cup. Ahhh. Pretty good right?  

Anyway yesterday was a pretty good day. I did get some stuff done when I got home. I also listened to my book for a good bit. We made dinner, and I slept. Canadia is going to bring some of her cold weather down to us for a bit,  but it warms up next week.

I don't remember the timing of things. Maybe midnight tonight. We have a 3 day window to cancel our refi so when that passes our house loan, and home equity disappear, and we'll just have the house loan. I am pretty excited to see how that looks on my bank app. This week we get paid from all our jobs,  and tomorrow we pick up our big for us check. We won't be short of money.

I am pretty excited for this Spring. We have a lot we want to do with the house. I guess I kinda want to get started.

Other than that not much going on. Life you know is a never ending set of days. It goes on forever except one day we die, and they stop. I talked to my Dad yesterday. He turned 82. He still works around 25 hours/week. He still told me about two competitive handball games he had last week. In Chicago the old timers still do that. Not sure if anyone else plays handball.

Anyway yesterday was a day. I woke up early to tell you about my stupid day. Today will be another.  :)

Have a good one.   :)

Yesterday Was Another day.

Good morning. How's it going?  Me, I am doing good. Yesterday was a pretty normal day. Worked a full day. I drove to work yesterday so on a whim I stopped and had a couple beers at the bar next door. I was the only one there so I had a conversation with the bartender. She knew some of the people I worked with. She's been there awhile cuz sometimes in previous years we would eat there on a Saturday after seeing a movie,  and I remember her working. She seems nice, and I think she probably has a partying side to her. I am guessing she is starting to approach 30. Not really sure what she wants of life. I may stop in there on Tuesdays. Why not right? 

Other than that I came home, and didn't do much. I made dinner,  and slept. I'll come home today and do some stuff. I gotta listen to my book too. It was a book I read before, but it was several years ago. Today may be an easy day at work too. I may actually get out early.

There will be a dinner, and I am not sure what. Right now I think I'll have some breakfast.

Fun fun.  :)

Okee dokee.

Til next time.

Cya.  :)

I Spose.

Good morning. How's it going?   Me, I am fine. If I were to look at the weather I'd probably ride my bike to work. It is supposed to be warm with little chance of rain. It is pouring outside now so I guess I'll drive.

We finished our refi yesterday so that's good. We'll get a pretty big for us check on Friday. I can't believe how easy this makes our life.

After the housing bust I really didn't give a fuck about this house. I thought buying a house was stupid. Thanks to a really strong Economic recovery in West Michigan the house is pretty sweet. We currently are in the best financial position we've ever been in.

I'll pay off our 0% credit card, and we'll have our house payment. We also have a car payment. It is pretty ridiculous. $100/month. I guess we'll pay that off early. Just not right away. We have to do our roof first. We'll have a rainy day fund I guess. Chances are it grows at a nice clip too.

So really I'll continue to work,  eat, sleep. Just continue to do my thing. Life will go on. There isn't a lot of stress in my life. It is pretty easy I guess. Yesterday my only stress was to finish my work so I could make it to my 3:00 appt. Done and done.

It was a good day I'd say. This should be a pretty good Spring,  Summer,  and Fall.

Now I think I'll eat a little breakfast.

These days this blog many times can be about nothing.

Today is one of those days for sure.

Okee dokee.

Cya next time.  :)

Up Early Enough To Do This.

Good morning. How's it going?  Me, I am doing okay. I don't really plan on doing this early Sunday morning, but I am done sleeping.  Yesterday was okay as far as days go. I took Hope for a walk, I had time to chill before work. I worked,  and saw the Get Out movie after work. It was good.

I came home, and started laundry, we each made our pizzas, and that was about it. Lisa watched a movie,  and I fell asleep through it. Today isn't going to be a crazy day. I'll work,  and then we'll see.

It is a pretty simple life I lead. I don't have any huge plans, but I do typically count on waking up early every morning,  and I count on feeling pretty good too.

I really know myself I guess,  and I know my life. There is so much I know about me,  and i guess that is a spot where you and I differ. While I was out learning about imperfect me I learned about others. I learned why we aren't perfect,  and I know why on our own it isn't even a possibility. I also learned that matters.

These days I cannot really say anything, cuz it's all been said. I just do my day to day, and I guess others do to. Another slight change is I am cool with my day to day. I don't expect anything else out of life. I guess I know the worth of the path of this World. I went a different way.

Due to being pulled,  and wanting to matter,  and stuff like that. I guess the funny thing is I learned I don't matter. I wasn't worth anything really. I had to learn that hard lesson. In the end I guess I wanted a good ending for myself. That comes from overcoming 3 times. I have one time left. A little secret too is I am not strong enough to overcome. I am taken over and made to say the right things. These days I know I have the best help. The one who overcame will do the same again using this vessel.

I will have worth,  but none of it will be from this guy who was a kid born to this World.  My worth will be given. Earned in a way as I had to endure my trials,  but really given, cuz I am overtaken to be able to overcome.

I know you cannot understand these things. I am different. Having been through the eye of the needle makes me different than a person born in this World.

I can't help you understand that either.

Okee dokee.

I have to check out another Pendergast book. I will finish my current one sometime during work.

Have fun.

Cya.   :)

Sleep In Day.

Good morning. How's it going?  Me. I am fine. Today is my sleep in day,  and I used it. Slept til 5:30 with no wake ups I remember. I didn't really do much yesterday. I did buy a new set of headphones for my Sunday job. They cancel out external noise so it will be easy to listen to my books I like to do on my Sunday job.

I do have some stuff to do around the house today. Gonna make homemade pizza for dinner.  A pretty easy day planned. I am liking my schedule more and more. We have 2 accounts. One pays the house payment,  and one the rest of our bills. Each account has a good amount of money coming in over what it needs to pay. I guess that's how you want to set it up of you are able.

At anytime we'll be able to go out and do something fun if we want. Not that we do anything crazy. The most we do is go out for a meal.

Today I woke up as I normally do. Without a care in the World really.

I guess you would want to set up your life that way as well. That kinda is what this blog is about. Your life vs. What I write here. How you feel on the inside compared to what actually is possible.

Anyway, I'll leave it at that.

Til next time.

Another Day Down.

Hello, and good morning. How's it going?  Me, I am doing good. We signed our final papers for our refi, so we are ready to close on Monday. We were planning on taking out a little money to redo our roof. It ends up we are getting $2200 more than we expected. That is fine with us. We got plenty of things to do. Also our next house payment isn't til May 1.  Like I said our life just got a lot easier.

Anyhoo other than that not much going on. Just continue to do the work, eat, sleep thing. Yesterday I took out $20 in cash using my debit card in a store. Turns out I had $40 in my wallet already. It's like free money. I decided to stop and have a beer. I ran into Hawaii Greg again. He actually is going back out to Hawaii in a week or so. Visiting Lisa's brother.

On another note we are actually going to go on a little vacation this Fall. When we used to travel a bit we thought we'd check out different cities. For no reason at all San Antonio was on that list. So we will go for 3-4 days to check it out. Do something different.

I don't really like doing anything more than 3-4 days. You kinda run out of things to do. At least I do. I like my routine, and I don't really want to be too far removed from it. I guess I am strange that way.

Today is Friday. The end of the week, and the start of the weekend.

As you can tell not much going on with me.

Til next time.

A Coffee, and A Blog.

Good morning. How's it going?  Me, I am fine. I had some pretty vivid dreams last night. I remembered them too. Nothing really too crazy.

Some guy from a NJ radio station came to, or traveling back from MI looked me up to interview me about baseball for his radio show. I did the interview. I thought he was nice, but a little later I thought he may be a serial killer. Also a bunch of us were stuck outdide, the weather turned, and several funnel clouds were touching down near us.  Some other things like that.

Yesterday was pretty much the same as most days. After work I listened to my Pendergast book, made dinner. I napped after dinner, than watched some TV.

A pretty boring life when looking from the outside huh?  This is what our life is like. Day after day of nothing really glamorous.

Today will be another day. There will be a dinner at the end.

Not much else to report. I can write this shit every day. I should delete this shit when I write it.

I won't today though. I'll make you read it.

Cya.  :)

Yesterday Was Another Day.

Good morning. How's it going?  Me, I am doing good. Yesterday was pretty good as far as days go. Next door to the bakery is a restaurant/bar. I rarely stop there, but yesterday I stopped to have a couple beers. No reason really,  I drove cuz it was raining before work. If I bike I won't stop for beers. I thought what the heck.

I saw someone who may have been like me in my earlier years. He wasn't obese really, but he definitely carried a good extra 40 pounds or so. He ordered a chicken sandwich that was a big sandwich. He dipped it in a honey mustard sauce. He had fries with it. I think when I was 36 I could have eaten that sandwich pretty easy. These days I bet I could only eat half.

I have no idea what I weigh, but I am probably close to an ideal weight. Somehow over the years my appetite is smaller. That is why I probably stay at my pr  running weight even though 40-50 miles of running/week is a thing of the past.

What made me think of these things is I made a Dr. appointment for a routine physical. It made me think of my health. I am not overweight. Cancer doesn't run in my family. High blood pressure maybe. It made me think I am probably healthy. I haven't been to a Dr. in forever. I had a slight cold a year and a half ago. I haven't had even a headache in forever.

I rarely drink pop. Alcohol is my only vice, but I don't think I over do it, regardless of what my wife may think. Who knows what my cholesterol looks like?  I guess we'll find out. Regardless I think it strange I can eat only a fraction of what I used to be able to. Going to bed early probably helps. We eat dinner usually around 6:00 or so. I am asleep typically around 8:00. There are no late night snacks for me. That probably helps me.

I guess through having a good schedule my lifestyle is relatively healthy. I don't take on too many things, so I am not pressed for time. This life is unstressful as much as one can be I guess.

I am lucky to be able to wake up most days feeling at peace. I know you don't know what this feels like, and I cannot explain it. 

Anyway, I guess that is good.

Have a good one.  :)
