Moving, but nothing is moving.

Another week, another post. At least I have chicken ;-P And good music. Plus the whole job, health, food, clothing, roof and a fine family things. So, the usual. Busy shifting things from one place to the next-my stuff is mostly done-clothes and bins and the stuff to sell, plus a couple of other things.

And the weekend is over. We’re in the new place, but the old place still has a bunch of stuff in it. There are boxes in the hall and the boys’ room, but a lot has been done. I’m super sore, didn’t sleep well Sat. night, and had odd dreams last night. Over the next few days, we’re going to shift the stuff we want to keep, clean, and get rid of the rest. It’s going to be hot this week. S is at church camp, and we hope everything goes OK, what with all the heat…

Another weekend over-took a lot of stuff to the goodwill, had to trash the mattress. Got a bunch cleaned up, more to go. New place is still not done either. S back from camp-she had a hard time, but fun anyways.

Moving day is around the corner.

“If we can get over this summer.” Decade? I need to make some music. Maybe in the new place I’ll be able to set up. With the Kronos, I need a lot less space-board, amp, guitar. I should trim a bit and get everything into the cedar chest. We’ll see. Gotta get busy this weekend and put stuff in boxes, make a list of things to do as well.

E is putting stuff in boxes-some overwork on her part as well. Homemade pizza for dinner-this probably contributed to the overwork as well. Took M to the train station this morning-he’s having a great time at his FBI academy camp. S is enjoying theatre camp, C just stays up late. On a production issue at work-hopefully it won’t end up disastrous-I dislike this stuff. M’s FBI youth academy graduation, lunch, Ikea, worked late, busy repacking my stuff for the move, tidy as much as possible, church, laundry, hurry S to birthday party, shop, eat, pick up dinner, get a corner of the bedroom tidied, go through boys’ closet, Goodwill-picked up a WaterPik for $15. And back to work. The prod issue went through smoothly. We got the new apt., but paying for it is going to be a pain. Our church has been a great help-he have some lovely angels on our side-thanks!

So the past week-work, packing. S had theatre camp, so we saw the two performances Friday and Saturday-S to wrap pool party in fancy-land Sat-only a little envious. Got our keys Sat., I shifted a bunch of stuff from my closet, the outside closet, we got a new bed-letting it air out, so very sunburned, tired, sore and sweaty-it was hot, I was fried by the end of Sunday, and didn’t sleep well. Church, more shifting, Costco, Goodwill, laundry, etc. M helped a lot. We met 3 of the 5 neighbors-we knew 3 of 12 in our current apt. building, and a few more just the kids. My Android device lost its wi-fi, so I’m back to the iPhone only-it’s OK, but the screen is tiny in comparison.

I’m watching the drama in Washington D.C., but trying to not let it affect me-45 is just an outward reflection of the severe dysfunction not just in politics, but in the wider world. A lot of people basically called all this mess last year-I know I did. How to fix? Don’t know if it’s possible except to act as an exemplar and do the inner work. I have stuff to do, but insufficient energy and time to devote to it.

Is patriotism dead?

Killed by Republican extremism? Likely a media driven hollowed out expression of sublimated violence. The question becomes: what is the meaning? I read the time odyssey series by Arthur C. Clarke, which expands the definition to mean all of Earth. This may still be too narrow. Def. been replaced on the GOP side with a twisted nationalism/religiosity. And it’s just one thing after another in political news. Seeing that a gigantic Antarctic ice shelf just calved, climate change is so much more important than political squabbling. Relevant quote not found. Here is one from 2007: “They’d prefer to be emirs and kings running a shambling catastrophe of a country than moderately rich men in Sweden.”

Ok, so weekend was shop, clean, church. Had to help a co-worker with a thing. Misplaced my power supply-had to drive to work to get another-ferried C around too. Slept in, shop. Got S from theatre camp. E bought a red Rav4-lower payments, but higher debt. Watching the Tour. Trying to find a bigger place-we might move next door-C doesn’t like it. The usual weekend stuff-I’m feeling, well I don’t know. Back to work. My BP is OK, no colon issues.

Climate change: This is so strong. Politics: This too, and more from Salon. I may need to resurrect the link farm…

Again, again, again

Well, life is rolling along. Not much new. Moved the gamelan from PSU back home. S got a new bike, and promptly got into drama with other girls. Got up early Friday to see a new Dr. Cholesterol is 193…BP is a bit high-need to check it a few times. And it’s 140/90 this morning. S to friends’, dinner out with the boys last night. Helped finish setting up the a/c. Very tired, not far from home.

The weekend: hot, errands, C to house show, pickup. E to church, pickup, errands. S is staying up late. New Zealand won the America’s Cup. E picked me up from work, picked up C from the train late. No gamelan, S has a bike, E picked me up, took her to Dr’s app’t, shutdown next week, but I get to work!

More of the same. What did you expect?

Rose Festival/Fleet week this week. Waiting to watch the ships come in. I wish my ship would come in…better play the lotto, it’s huge right now. Nice to watch the ships. Gamelan went OK-we have a guest harpist who plays at our church-Portland is very small. M is sick-he’s denying it-we’re going to call him “Ron” from now on.

Sat.-clean up at C’ s school-late, C to tfaw, tidy, S & E to Wonder Woman, pick up C, watch part of the South Park movie, pick up S & E, bed, no church, market, lunch, libe, gamelan, hassle getting home, as I missed the regular bus. C is at a friend’s, pride and gig tomorrow.

Up for Pride, setup, work until 3. S was dressed up. Misplaced my lunch. Walk to PSU, move instruments, practice, eat, hang out, gig-played ok-we made changes and I got messed up. Also messed up the Threnody. Move back, home, dead tired. Up, deliver E to Pride, back home, back with S, work, pack up, dead tired, Souplantation, bed, still tired Mon. Work, home is very messy, bed.

Wash, rinse, repeat.

One of the things about working and having kids is that the days seem to repeat themselves. Things just happen the same way day after day. No matter-it actually means that things are running smoothly. I’d rather be doing other things, but I have a job and a place to sleep, food and healthy kids, so that’s a lot better than many.

And now the litany (I think I’m going to just write highlights): E went to a church-ish thing, C stayed home and shouldn’t’ve, home a bit early, gamelan-feeling better about the hairy heart and Threnody. C to party at a park, home late, bus driver had to reboot bus twice, looks like I’m working 4th of July week & doing after-hours support. Pretty quiet Memorial Day weekend-repacked the outside closet (again), friends of E visited Sunday-cleaned up a lot for them, visited old PWS friends, picked up a box of photos and a box of E’s stuff, cleaned the van. Made up a list of stuff to do, got the exactly 2 things on the list. Picked up a book on forensic science for M-he’s going to FBI camp this summer-has SAT’s this Sat. S has a toothache. Gamelan at PSU-got there early, doors locked, walked down, a thing, back to practice-choir, harp, sax. E picked me up. Missed the train this morning.

I’ve been dwelling on these two songs lately-they’re from my teen years. In Cleveland in the mid-late 70’s, the radio station WMMS used to do a 6pm thing on Friday-it was a shift change, and Kid Leo would sign out with “Born to Run”, then Murray Saul would do a 5 minute rant ending with “We’ve gotta, gotta, gotta….get down, dammit!!!”, then play “Friday on My Mind.” Everyone would listen to it, and I mean everyone-they were pulling down a 60 share for that time slot. A fucking 60-for 2 songs and a guy ranting for 5 minutes. The other song is a relic from ’78 that I sort of despised at the time as I was fully into prog at the time, but seems pretty decent in retrospect-the rant is a little lame, and it’s cliched, but solid meat and potatoes biker rock from the Midwest.

Then this at 1:30am on Saturday night-we’d close the bars and drive around looking for a party…

My family wasn’t so excited when I blasted “Friday on My Mind” when I got home Friday. \/\/hate\/er. So, the weekend. Delivered M to SAT’s at 7:30am. Yuck. Bopped around with E until he got done, lunch: so-so fish, got shorts at Red White Blue, libe, home. S woke up from a bad dream and an earache. Church Sun.-Pentecost (I wonder how many of these people have had the ghost laid on them?), market, lunch, ceremony for our new minister, shop, home, M isn’t well either. Sore throat, hard to sleep-feeling odd, odd dream.

Here we are again.

Yet another post, just like the last post. Except for the dates, the p23s5, and the listening to…

So, work, home, gamelan-switching up the Threnody, and that damn hairy heart piece. Home, errand for E, dinner, bed, up, to work. Working from home tomorrow, as E is going to Breitenbush for the weekend.

And it’s been quite a weekend, with nothing going to plan. So E gets to Breitenbush, gets sick, and spends the next 2 days in a Salem hospital-bleeding ulcer-H. Pylori, anemia and too many NSAIDS… S went to a neighbors’ for a sleepover Fri., and a classmates’ Sat. Drove down to Salem, out to Breitenbush and back Sat., ran errands Sun., put luggage away, ER Sun. PM.

Back to work today, so tired. I think I have h. pylori too, but subclinical. House is pretty clean, though I didn’t get to clean the bathroom or vacuum. Some clothes need folding, and some need washing. Maybe tonight, though I need to work too. Read HP & the Cursed Child. As usual, JKR puts together a fast read.

Dinner, dishes done, wash done, S to bed, bills half paid, bed. Up, work, home, dinner, bed. Hard to get to sleep. Dishes and folding clothes.  Wash, rinse, repeat. Gamelan tonight-E’s getting pizza for dinner. Gamelan-focused on the show.

Woke up early, rolled around daydreaming, forgot my dream, went back to sleep, no water in the filter, took too long to make coffee, missed the bus, then the bus in front of us hit a car and ran and we had to all get off and take the next one, so late to work…Work, home, dinner, bed. Up, work, home, an explosion in a nearby industrial park. Early to bed, up, dishes and laundry, shop, dinner, S in pool. Bed, up, church, E to meeting, Sat. market, shop, dinner, haard to get S to bed, tidy, bed. Woke up early, but got back to sleep, to work. Taking kefir and olive oil (and honey) for my H. Pylori.

3rd time’s a charm?

Well, this is iteration #3 of starting this entry-first one was out of memory, 2nd was a phish panic-I changed all my passwords for google.

Back from wedding travel, still feel odd. Reading The Psychedelic Experience, prompted by a conversation at the wedding. Really a very nice modern interpretation of the Bardo Thodol. I want to start making music, but no time-work, housecleaning, time with wife, etc., just eats it all up. No matter-I have all the right gear, so the time will arrive.

I don’t even want to think about politics. Sis made a blanket “no politics” at the wedding-we sort of ignored that, as we’re all fairly open-minded and liberal, at least us and the youngsters…We really did have some nice conversations-Sis’ older kids are old enough-same with the step-kids-had a nice convo about “420” beer.

The Recap: work, home, tidy, dinner, S tossed a fit because no Harry Potter, bed, up early-ish, train on tracks, so late in, trying to untangle a problem, didn’t. Gamelan-getting better at the busy complicated ugly piece, pretty much there on the Threnody. (this was us from the 30th Anniversary show) We got it on the NPR website too.

Home, dinner, bed, up and to work. Home, C’s birthday, lasagna for dinner and a gift card. Up, to work, home, lazy. Up Sat., shop, home, lazy. Church Sun., cleaning-the house is mostly clean, luggage and recyclying to go. S is being a brat. Bed, to work. Pretty repetetetitive. Home-pool time, dinner, S to bed, bed, up, to work. Whoopee.

Just got roped into a side project-no $$$, but good for the karma.

Home, dinner, reading, S to bed, tidy, bed, up, to work. FBI director got fired. People are saying it’s Nixonesque, but it’s actually less so, as firing an independent prosecutor is further down the gonna be impeached line than the FBI director is. Only time will tell.

An exciting life? Really? Maybe a little.

Yeah, the title is still appropriate, because my life isn’t really exciting…you can be the judge of that.

The recap: home, tried to tidy a little, S to bed late, not happy. Missed the bus again, got picked up on the eastside, shop, dinner, bed. Gamelan, home, same ‘ol, bad traffic, S on Spring break, drama with C, missed a thing, E drove me to gamelan, show, getting sick.

And it’s a week later. I got the flu and spent the week in bed. I got some work done, but mostly sufferation-high temp, very sensitive skin, not a lot a sleep, upset stomach. Just no fun at all. Got better Thurs, day off Fri, lazy weekend-church, Sat. Market-Salem enjoyed Supadupa Marimba Bros-the music is so happy, and the leader works at Lewis & Clark-he played during the show last week. Didn’t sleep much-up and now at work. The week flew by, sort of-I was still a bit out-of-sorts, gamelan Weds, just not up for it, pretty day Fri., clean Sat.-house is in pretty good shape for the trip. Church Sun, lunch, haircut, dinner, bed. Up early-trying to get in extra hours before the trip. Work, home, dinner, S to bed, bed, up early again. I’m not sleeping very well because of the early rising. Work, home, packing, S to bed, more packing, bed, up. Wearing nice clothes for the travel. Panic about time entry.

OK, it’s Sunday night and we’re at the Omni downtown-the weekend has been frantic and occasionally stressful. I dislike traveling. To summarize: Thursday-work, Max to airport-met family just as they arrived, flight to SFO, then redeye to Atlanta, car, breakfast in Decatur, World of Coke, lunch at Johnny Rockets, drive, very tired, downpour, nice suite, get food, hang out at Sis’, bed. Friday: lazy, E & S to spa, zipline with boys & nephews, pick up E & S, big dinner, bed. Saturday: lazy, shop, wedding, reception, pack, bed. Sunday: breakfast at Sis’, drive, bigfoot museum, more drive, cnn hotel, get a nice suitcase for cheap at a Goodwill in the ‘hood, dinner, big ferris wheel w/S, bed. Up Monday, Waffle House, King Center, Carter Center, airport, flights, Taco Bell for dinner, bed.

Tuesday, and I’m back to the regular grind. C actually made it to school, M got his work done.

What’s next-no idea what’s coming.

Presidential politics is in disarray-I have no idea how this will play out. We are in “post-truth”, and no one believes or even listens to the other side. This is a recipe for fractured disarray, and that’s what’s happening. Strong stuff is being written, but I don’t think it will matter. The people pulling the levers of state aren’t really interested in us. See “This Factory Was a Field” by Attack Attack Attack.

The recap: Hanging out at the Swedish center waiting for brunch-my heritage. Pretty cool place. S has a theatre thing, so we dropped her off. Worked on UI design yesterday, no cleaning. Powell’s, play, home, dinner, S to bed. Mon., Tue., upset stomach. UI coding. Weds., stomach better, forgot my coffee AGAIN. Pizza for lunch. Gamelan, taking on some new Lou Harrison pieces, remembered my coffee. Panic at home because the modem got unplugged. C on a date. Fri., tired. Amigos del Sol for dinner. Sat., work on UI design, ultraviolent movies, S to party and sleepover. Church Sun., C to friends’. Lunch, shop-new phone cases, pick up C, pizza dinner, S to bed, bed, up. C to new school.
