Road Tripping

I am currently on the road en route to Kim’s grandma’s cabin. In celebration of her birthday, we are spending the weekend up there. We had planned on leaving in the morning, but I figured why not head up tonight? I have scheduled PTO on Friday, so there’s really no reason for us to leave tonight instead of heading up in the morning.

Of course, I intended to blogging before we left, and I even thought about it doing it after Kim headed home to pack and get her dogs. She had given me an ETA of 9:30 PM but sent me a text an hour before asking if I had finished packing. I was nearly finished, but I knew I wouldn’t have the time to blog like I wanted to. I nearly forgot and remembered when I looked at the clock in Cliff, so now I am blogging via my phone.

I expect this weekend to be a relatively chill weekend with perhaps some exploring so we can both get our camera’s out. I hope the time away will allow me to recharge as I desperately need that. I’ve been operating on fumes for far too long, and it … Read More

Is Cleanliness 1 of the 7 Virtues? It Should Be.

I spent the majority of the day in bed because I did not feel well. As a result, I plan on pulling an all-nighter to reset my schedule because I completely fucked it by staying up until 2:00 AM the night prior. I managed to wake up around 9:00 AM but ultimately fell back asleep until about 3:00 PM, and so here we are now.

I am tired but recognize that I’ll likely only sleep a couple of hours before waking up, which would only end up compounding my already fucked up sleep schedule.

Tonight, I will try to focus on cleaning up my office so I can finally use the VR Headset that Robby got me for Solistice. It’s been sitting on my desk, staring at me, silently mocking me because my office has been in a state of disarray for far too long.

There’s actually quite a bit on my to-do list that has also been sitting there, uncrossed, for far too long, and while a large part of that has to do with work and the amount of time it consumes, I’d be remiss if I did not take on some of the responsibility as well.

Friday Nights: I Know How to Party… ish

Well, I’d like to think I know how to party, but the truth is I’m old and my Friday night consisted of deep cleaning our fridge. It was definitely unexpected but as we cleared out and organized the fridge, we realized that it didn’t make sense to stop there, so we continued on..

This consisted of Robby completely deconstructing the insides of not only the fridge but also the freezer. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel accomplished, especially because it was completely impromptu but it was definitely needed.

I still have to clean the side doors but overall I am happy with the result. It will at the least continue to remain clean until we’ve run out of the meals we had delivered from Tovala and Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon.

Typically, I try my hardest to only use one meal delivery service for the month but somehow these managed to slip by me. Though to be honest, I don’t mind. It means we don’t have to come up with a meal plan for sometime and also means I can avoid the question I get each night from Robby, “What do you want to have Read More
