April 26th

Well…another night at home last night since G went home and fell asleep…something I think she needed so I’m okay with that…and it saved some cash so that’s not all bad. I was quite bored with a no cocktail night and I didn’t sleep much but that’s just how it goes these days….I did get some resumes out yesterday but I think I have to broaden my search and get ready to move out of state…but that’s okay, too…I have one more start over in me and I probably should get to it. How do you get achilles tendon problems when you don’t run? I could barely walk yesterday with the pain in my right foot…it is better today but still is tender and stiff…and don’t have a clue how the heck I hurt it….I hope it doesn’t develop into the same pain I had in my elbow last year that lasted most of the summer….not much to do today…pool with Tom and more cleaning but that’s about it….more later….

April 25th

Well…it was just a lump day yesterday and I didn’t do a whole lot but watch movies and ride the bike….not even any cooking; just leftover chicken so the boredom quotient was quite high…and I feel that bleeding over into today since I really have no plans for anything. I do need to clean this place up since they are coming to work on the furnace Wed and that means lots of work for me…but that’s not bad being forced into doing something that I should do anyway….and it will give me something to pass the time other than just watching the tv….not much to do today….just resumes and coffee….and the bike, of course…there will be topics later since I have discovered I don’t really need to be spurred on by current events; I can actually have ideas of my own…you’re surprised too, huh? More later…

April 24th

Well…another night with cocktails so I am running a little late this morning…I did have a little fun yesterday with going out to have a couple with K and V but that was the extent of the variation from the normal Saturday routine….it is nice that it has gotten back out of the forties again and I can get back into shorts….I wonder if you can get dyslexia in your fingers? I have had a heck of a time typing the word from lately..it always comes out form and then I have to go back and correct it…yep, you knew I was weird when you started reading this thing…not much to do today…I do have a movie to watch and I will be getting on the bike for a nice leisure ride this morning, but right now, the coffee is done and I need to read the paper…more later…

April 23rd

Well….it’s after 8 so that means I’m running late this morning…didn’t even get up until 7:45 but all that sleep didn’t really help…feel pretty crappy this morning and the allergies are wreaking havoc on me already…sneezing, coughing, and my head feels like it’s full of concrete….didn’t take much for it last year but I think this year will have to be different..or not…who knows….when is the coffee going to be ready? Okay..it is so I’m going to stop and go get a cup and read the papers….

Okay…I’m back after reading the papers and much coffee but that hasn’t really helped me feel better…so I’ll just adjust and get into go slow mode for the rest of the morning and maybe even into the afternoon….it was a pretty good night last night and I resisted the temptation to text anyone…I may have to dump the dish here pretty soon and see if I can get the same programming on the internet services since they just raised the price again….we’ll see…I think I only watched about an hour on it yesterday and that is way too little to justify the price….not much to do today…trying to get motivated to get the bike out but I just don’t want to be cold today so I think I’ll wait until later this aft….making a whole chicken for lunch today and I am looking forward to having something different….it’s a pain to cook for one…have had leftover ham all week and I don’t think I can even look at it again for quite a while…will probably make salmon tomorrow since I have to eat out of the freezer…..but you don’t really care about that do you? On that note, I’m going to stop here and head back to the couch to lick the wounds and let the caffeine do its magic….more later…

April 22nd

Well…up a little too early and was surprised to have a text waiting from T since she has the day off and thought she’d sleep in….pleasant surprise, though…stayed in last night and just watched tv but was really annoyed with the episode of “Bones” that was on where they used it as kind of a pilot for another new show and the main characters were only in about 10 minutes…disappointing to say the least….yeah, I know….but I don’t have a whole lot going on in my life so this stuff is more important than it should be….it was nice to get out on the bike yesterday but today looks a little iffy with the rain and cold….can’t wait for the weather to get a little more consistent so I can count on getting some aerobic exercise and lose the winter weight….not much to do today…groceries, of course, and maybe HH with K later but who knows? I need to get started on my day so I’ll end here….more later….

Still struggling…

Well…just thought I’d get a shorty out to let you know that I am working on getting another one going in my head but this whole day has been a weird jumble of things happening and I am so far off my normal routine that I haven’t even read the online papers yet…so I’m going to do that now and then come back in a while to finish this…

Okay, I’m back…had to run an unexpected errand and still haven’t found anything to write about….maybe the hurt feelings of Paul Ryan would be appropriate…I just had to laugh after Obama attacked Ryan’s radical budget proposal, with Ryan calling the speech “overly partisan”…oh, poor baby, you should be happy he didn’t call you the idiot that you are…well…he kind of did, and as time goes by and people other that the Heritage Foundation take a close look…we’ve learned that it does nothing to lower the deficit, yep, that’s right…nope, I can’t even fake surprise at this one….these guys have taken “voodoo” economics to a new high, and I am so happy they did it, finally letting the curtain fall on their agenda to end the social contract that has existed for the past 90 years. It is a little heartening to see the same kind of thing happening here in Michigan with gov Snyder losing support even from his own party where they still have some realists…..I can’t wait to see the ads for the next election where the dismantling of Medicare is going to be the subject…and it will make it easier to believe when the left says the repubs want to end Social Security, too….going to be interesting time over the next two years…strap in and hang on…

April 21st

Well…a pretty good day yesterday but I stayed up late to watch the Wings so I’m running late and slow this morning…and no, it’s not that I’m just getting old…I am but that’s not it…did go out to have a couple with G and that was too early to start when the game didn’t start until 10:30…oh, I didn’t tell you that the Wings won in a sweep…I’ll give you the details in the Wings update later today…I am so sore today and I can’t figure it out…haven’t been on the bike in a few days and haven’t done anything different…oh, well…not much to do today….it’s going to be a recovery day and I need to get back on the normal schedule so I’ll just lay low today….hope it gets warm enough to get out and get a ride in…I think that may have something to do with my fuzzy brain and I’ll try anything to get some clarity…more later…

April 20th

Well….I can’t wait for this damn weather to break and I can go back to shorts…it’s just so depressing getting up and hearing the furnace running in the last part of April….got whipped at pool yesterday and I’ll blame it on not playing on our normal table….not that I was shooting crappy or anything like that…nope, it was the table….and I was pretty good when I got home so I feel a lot better today than I did yesterday but that’s not saying much….not much to do today…there is a Wings game on late so it’s back to a nap this aft since it’s a 10:30 game and it could be the last one in the first round…it would be cool to sweep Phoenix and get to resting for the second round…damn….need to put this stuff in a Wings update for later……might have a few with G later but I probably should take the day off and let the liver rest for a while…I will be back for another one later…there has to be something going on in the world that deserves a comment…might just have to look a little harder….more later…

April 19th

Well…I over-cocktailed last night and I feel really crappy this morning physically…but the reason for the stupidity was that the Wings were going three up on Phoenix….but I’ll save that for the Wings update for later….I had a nice day with a surprise lunch with T and then a nap in the aft to get ready for staying up late for the game…I think I must have sent or gotten 50 texts during the game so that was fun….other than the game…it was another boring day…don’t know if I’m going out for coffee this morning….stayed up until almost one and that is way too late for an old guy….I need water and the couch so I’m going to end here…more later…

April 18th

Well…that was a really terrible surprise when I got up this morning to find a blanket of snow on everything…I know, it’s Michigan and we can expect at least one snowfall in April but it’s one thing to know it intellectually and another to actually have to start the car to warm it up and melt the snow. This just puts a damper on the day and starts it out all wrong….it was an okay weekend, didn’t do much but watch the Wings and races….I didn’t get anything political out over the weekend but I have an excuse….nothing really grabbed me and got the brain working in overdrive like I need it to….I’ll try harder today…not much to do today…as I said before, I am gong back to jeans for the next few days, I really hate being cold and that even trumps my ego….but I won’t wear socks…how’s that for a compromise? More later….

One last thing I need to add….I did watch “Winter’s Bone” yesterday and it was a pretty good movie…one of the “small movies” the I like a lot that replaces explosions and bombast with character studies….I did feel that it unfolded a little too slowly and some of the characters’ motivations were unclear even until the end…but still a good movie that shone a light on a part of the country that not many of us get to see….
