Happy solstice!

Please tip the writer. Whatever amount you like. We are always short of cash. If you need essential oils, please get in touch-my wife is a rep for DoTerra. Let me know if you or someone you know needs web design/development-my rates aren’t bad, and I’m more than pretty good at it. Java/database/UI too. ThankYouVeryMuch!

First full post since the new WP version. We’ll see how much this changes things-I already dislike the lack of header images and the auto-excerpting in the 2019 theme. And I reverted the theme until I can get stuff looking right. The new editor is pretty cool, though there are some layout issues.

And it’s the week before Christmas. My oldest hates this time of year. I don’t disagree. The short days, cold, forced cheerfulness, etc. Add to that the massive dysfunction in politics, and all the rest, this is a particularly bad holiday season. And that’s that. I don’t have much else to say: here’s the recap.

Sun. am, sitting at the kitchen table. E isn’t up for church, but binz. Good w/o Fri., we’re making mulled wine, a lot. E is actually able to drink it without all the ill effects of alcohol showing up. Shop, drive around, Whole Bowl, E getting church ready, watched Black Panther last night. I need to clean. And the cleaning didn’t happen.

Mon., at work. No cleaning or laundry got done. Did get kitchen tidy. Skipped church, shop, binz-got a bluetooth keyboard for the tablet. W/o-some guy was blasting shitty music the whole time. No t’ai chi-we need quiet for that. Restless sleep-part was the essential relief oil heating up my knee-not relaxing… Cold and rainy. Time to break out winter work shirts, and Christmas decorations.

Tues., trying to untangle disabling that shouldn’t-and it was a setting plus a missing image-bug submitted. Listening to “No World Order” My copy is really badly recorded-need to redo. Did 2 loads of laundry last night, 2 more to go.

Next day, again. Looks like I’m adding a paragraph a day. W/o late-change of pace, running, late dinner, left leg is sore. Working out is def. making a difference to my belly-I need to go to the doc to see if I’m losing weight, though. Doubtful-the weight I lose is getting offset by muscle mass-it may take a few years to reduce my belly. Knee seems OK, except going down stairs. E did laundry! I sorted and distributed. Watched Dr. Strange. To bed late, tired today. My sleep app says I got 6 hours. I’ll def. be sleeping on the train home. Need sugarrrrr.

And I didn’t sleep on the way home-nodded off once or twice, but that’s normal. So, home, chill, dinner, TV, tidy, the usual. Got to bed earlyish. Sleep app says I woke up for a long time around 2, but I don’t remember it. Day is progressing-found an issue, resolved it by redeploying the correct build. Delivered 2 more, need to run it.

Sat. evening, watching downhill, writing this on the tablet. Nice having the mini keyboard. No cleaning today-M did some, shop instead. W/o-the usual, slept in a bit, breakfast, got ankle weights for cheap, Fubonn, etc. Dinner, have to work.

Tuesday, at work. Messed my back up Sun. night, but it’s better now. One of the pluses of being in better shape. So, did the work thing Sat. night, up ’til 3:30. No church Sun., tidy, tidy, kitchen, laundry, vacuum. The house is picked up, hopefully it will stay that way over the holidays. W/o with the ankle weights-better, but not quite heavy enough-need to double. And then my back went out-impossible to sleep Sun. night, 2 aspirin helped. Work, home, tidy, dinner, bed, up and out. Rainy. Reading Lord of the Rings.

Weds., a week at home is beckoning. Such a nice change of pace. I dislike the cash shortfall, but it’s only 2 days in 2 weeks, rather than a whole week of no pay. My back got better quickly, but my right shoulder and left knee are acting up, so no w/o last night. M didn’t either. Not much else. No music digest-stops at 10/24, and iTunes is acting up. I might have a fix-maybe next post.

Getting to the end of Lord of the Rings. Work lunch-pizza and Indian food. Starting on a new program to generate pdfs. Keeping the house tidy.

And Friday-I think I’ll finish this off. It’s pretty quiet. Fam sleeps in during holidays, so I leave for work to a quiet house. Working from home next week. M is still sick, my soreness is improving-skipping workouts helps.
