Or maybe just Daylight Saving Time.
a bit very tired and ornery today. My need for getting my workout in was in direct conflict with my need for sleep, and I chose that latter out of necessity, but I’m not thrilled about it. Is it too much to ask at this stage of life that I could be well-rested AND get a run or strength session in daily?
(The answer is “no” BUT only if there are no complicating circumstances like a time change, call week, or illness.)
Anyway. The news continues to be incredibly bleak and scary. I am continuing to dole it out in small doses but last night got sucked into CNN which is one reason I couldn’t sleep (and thus couldn’t wake up).
I do have some positive things to share.
1- THESE PENS ARE AMAZING! The only thing I strongly dislike is the name (“Juice Up”?!).
They are fine gel pens that remind me somewhat of the Pilot Hi-Tec C (I guess this makes sense, they are both Pilot!) but BETTER because they flow a bit better and are more comfortable to hold. And the colors are lovely. The smudge factor is low (though not zero on Hobonichi paper, but still quite low) and they are just a pleasure to write with. My Pentel Energel Clena feels threatened . . .
2- JOSH AND CAMERON went snowboarding! They headed to the Poconos (Jack Frost / Big Boulder / Blue Mountain). Sadly they actually got SNOWED IN one day at their hotel, but still got in 2 sessions.
We may end up skiing there (first fam ski trip) this winter. We were thinking something more ambitious like Montana or Utah but since I haven’t skied in approximately 15 years and the other kids have never gone, the Poconos might be an easier and (far) cheaper starter ski area. Plus we can visit my parents that way too (Josh and C stayed with them one night).
That said, the fact that they got snowed in helps me see the value in a place you can ski in / ski out! So we will see.
Meanwhile, A had a horse show and these 2 generally got along nicely.
Podcast mixup: Thank you to those who pointed out that the two Q&A in yesterday’s podcast were SWITCHED! I’m still not sure if that was my error or the audio processing (I don’t do my own processing) but it is fixed now. I apologize if there was an extra ep dropped into anyone’s feed! If you do see two episodes and you haven’t listened yet, delete the old one!
