Day 234: Clean House

Day 234: Clean House

There was a point today where things threatened to slip into very frustrating-land. I’d worked out, ran some errands, and was deciding that
I did, in fact, need to have these workout days off (at least in the near future, till I adjust more to how much they take out of me)…and I was feeling really, really torn up about it. Unsure as to what to do for the rest of my evening.

I had a knot of anxiety inside my stomach, and I just couldn’t figure out what was going to help get it out and calm me down. And, that’s when I decided I was going to clean the house.

And so, I did. And, it made me feel much better. I thought I was doing it just cause, but it turns out that Liz’s mom is coming into town tomorrow (I thought, for some reason, she was coming in on Saturday)…so it turns out my impulse to clean was perfectly timed 😛 So, the house is cleaned for her!

Coops is looking at me right now like he has to go out and go potty. Not good, since I’m already in bed in my underwear. Yes, that is how I write these entries at night. Too much info? Probs. Oh, maybe the Ho can take him out. Indeed, she seems like she’s on it. Usually I throw a robe on and take him out for the pees, but apparently the Ho is all over that shit tonight.

Little bastard. I took him out like and hour and a half ago.

I also sat down today and made a list of all the stuff that was stressing me out, so tomorrow’s goal is to slash that list down to size. Most of the stuff on it is quick, stupid stuff. So, that’s good, actually. I should be able to knock it out pretty quickly.

Working out today was good. One of the better workouts that I’ve had with Matt, actually. We mutually decided that I do, in fact, need to up my calories. It’s the only way for me to put some weight on. I’m still very frustrated with my strength, or lack thereof. I just don’t have much in my upper body. But, hopefully that changes, right? I’m definitely trying hard. And these workouts are freaking ridiculous. Legitimately. I’m grunting and making noises like a madman, I really don’t consciously mean to, they just come out. I hope it’s not too obnoxious. And, they will die down once my stamina and strength get better…in the meantime, it’s a struggle. But, I am giving it my all and doing more than I thought I could do.

My dad also bought me a power drill, like a REAL one, and I picked that up today. So nice of him. I’m not sure if he reads these things, but he’s the best dad a guy could ask for and he’s always been there for me when I needed him. Love him very much, and him getting me a drill just reminded me of all that. I’m very blessed to have such a wonderful family, for reals.

I need to call my brother Scott. He’s in school, so I do know that he’s busy, but it’s been several weeks since we had the chance to catch up. He seems to be doing well. We talked very briefly via FaceTime when we were up in Humboldt.

Anywho, tomorrow is actually a full work day. No fake-sies this time. My UP24 is also telling me that it’s time for bed, so there’s that. Good night to anyone who may be reading this. Thanks for sharing the time to see what I was up to today 😉

I don’t know what tonight’s artwork actually IS, but it looks cool nonetheless. And, it is courtesy of 70s Sci Fi art, as per usual.
