Evening pages

I feel like I’m overdue for something profound or significant, but today was just more hanging out with the family. Younger’s BFF came over early this morning and we took her to the pool with the rest of the girls. Came home, napped a bit, played video games, watched TV. Not a lot going on today, just watching the crypto prices go up and down and keeping an eye on the Perp.Fi funding rates to make sure I’m still making bank.

Now that the holiday weekend is over it’s time to get back to work. Elder has Galileo, but it’s she actually hasn’t done anything yet, so I hope she can actually get into some of these courses or clubs. Missus is reiterating that she wants her to go to back to school — and college — but I’m not going to be the one to argue with her on it. I’ll let Elder do it if that’s what she wants.

I did have a pretty good day. It was productive, but not quite in the way that I wanted. I was actually a bit bored today. I got Gloomhaven for PC yesterday. It’s a good game, but not really my thing, so it feels like twenty bucks wasted. I bought Sims 4 for Elder, but she got frustrated after a few minutes and went back to Roblox. Considering the amount of BS I had to go through to set the account up — thanks, EA — I was kind of disappointed, but it’s probably for the best. Missus was actually hooked on one of the other Sims games and asked me to set it up for her on her machine. I did, and she spent a few hours on it today.

Back to work tomorrow though. Coding and building, if I can get some time to myself. There’s a lot of cleaning to be done around here. I also didn’t make much progress finishing the deck, just put down that last board but didn’t screw it down because my drill battery was dead. I also need to buy a dryer, or figure out how to keep the one we have from eating our clothes. And another $800 to buy a hot tub cover. Blerg.

I managed to get a bit of a workout in today at the pool, swam laps for twenty minutes. Man, swimming is hard. Hopefully my knee will be better tomorrow. It’s mostly ok; my back if fine. What’s weird though is that the pain point is on the front of the kneecap. I probably won’t go running tomorrow though, I’ll make it an arm day.

It’s been a month since I quit my job.
