I have made it to Monday, and before I let Monday pass without another post, I share a few words.
My first thought was to say I don't know where the day went, but this is pure bullshit. I do know, and it was not so bad, though not what it could have been. What was is I woke late and went to the late Minyan (7:30). It was cold today, really cold.
I came home and mom and I had breakfast. I ate the fish left over from last night. I ate some of the Brussels sprouts (mmm, good). I ate an egg.
I helped mom compute. I might have called your mom for the first, second or third time, but who keeps count of these things. I arranged a phone call with one of my coachees, and had a call scheduled for 11:00. Then I did call your mom. Then I had a call at two, that rolled into one at two thirty, that ended at three-thirty, by which time I was half asleep. I actually set my alarm and had the call on speakerphone next to my head, and kind of woke up for the end of the call, and then rolled over until my alarm went off forty minutes later for me to go to synagogue for Minchah.
I bought beer and steaks on the way back to Oma's, and by the time we finished dinner and played a few games of canasta, it was 7:12 and time to do the dishes.
Here I did go off the rail. I allowed myself to get crazy distracted. I have legal papers to fill out, and tax forms, and somehow spent an inordinate amount of time looking for a replacement part (a rear sight eyepiece) for my .22 rifle. Then I went to look to see if some model trains we have here are worth selling, then I put on an episode, or two, of 'New Girl' for "background." I suppose I did get through my Facebook feed, but this was so not why I came downstairs.
And then I wanted to write, but I also wanted to right about the government shut-down here, and I said to myself, "okay, if I write that, that's writing, and that counts," and so I started, but I got that is bullshit too. It's not the same as writing to you.
So I stopped that - I got stuck anyway - and here I am, and here I go. I also promised myself to row, so I'm going to do that, and then call your mom.
I love you all. Have a great day. I've more to write, especially about a part of the last call I had, but that's to grow, and I'll tell you more about that later.
