It’s Sunday, the day that I manage my Perpetual positions. This week was the best yet, about $1400 in funding off of a nominal position size that equaled $145,000 after I compounded it. My total margin equaled $60,000, plus almost $25,000 in profit. Not a bad way to make a living. The most important metric, however, is that the month trailing surpassed my former salary. Now to see if things keep up.

I finally got around to looking up the day that the girls will be going back to school. It’s at lot closer than I thought, the day after Labor Day, three weeks from now. That changes things quite a bit. Since it’s pretty certain that Elder will be returning to public school for another year, and Younger will be starting Kindergarten, this means I’ll be staying at home by myself. I’m not sure how I feel about this.

It’s pretty apparent to me that I’ve got bronchitis. Since it’s not COVID and my cold is over, there’s not much I can really do about it except take an expectorant. I’ve been pretty lazy the last two weeks, exercising only one time. Even going to the park with the kids and running around with them leaves me winded. I haven’t been able to bring myself to try to go for a run, which is a shame, since I was just up to three miles last time I did. I really need to get back in my routine.

Today my dad came over for breakfast. Missus was still out on her union training. Elder fought with me about breakfast, then they went to church. I played Solasta while they were gone. Missus got home after they got back, and I lazed around the house. We ordered sushi for dinner, then I took Younger out to the park for a bit, then came back and watched cartoons. I’ve been completely useless, and haven’t worked on a house project all week. I guess cleaning and cooking is enough for me right now, but there’s so much that needs to be done.

I’ve fallen off most of my good habits the last two weeks. It’s going to take some work to establish the new ones again.
