Yesterday was a much better day. I decided to give up on doing coding work and instead decided to focus on the kids. After I did my morning routines we spent several hours organizing the house. I had Elder spend several hours cleaning out her room, and I went through Younger’s room, swapping out clothes and cleaning out all her old toys.
Everything that was in their room either went out into the trash can, or is sitting in the hallway, waiting for further processing. There’s a similar pile of crafts on the dining room table. We’ve got a shelf in the hutch that is overflowing with activity books and materials that has been spilling out onto the mini-fridge. It’s time for a culling on that as well, but it will have to wait till after dinner.
I also went crazy and re-organized some of the kitchen cabinets. Our Tupperware collection was out of control and frequently turns into a disorganized mess, so I moved it to a larger cabinet and moved a bunch of stuff around. I think I’m happy with the results.
So we spent most of the morning and an hour or two after lunch working on this project, I think it was around three before I let the kids have TV time. I had a bottle of port laid out for Missus when she came home, I let her handle dinner while I played DSP for like five hours last night. Went to bed at my usual time though and here I am for another day, mostly fresh. I want to go for a run this morning but think it might be too cold. I’m not sure I want to run in the forties, I will probably wait till noon when it’s in the mid fifties again.
We’re going to the SIL’s for dinner today. Elder wants to make some sort of dessert, a chocolate covered ball of marshmallow and peanut butter. She’s throwing a fit because I won’t let her do it on her own. The kitchen is a bit of a wreck from last night, and frankly, I don’t want to deal with it. Missus needs to make mashed potatoes and she’s not even up yet. Elder is throwing a fit over it. It’s my fault for letting her stay up late last night.
I have a lot to be thankful for. I have heard through the grapevine that the latest round of hirings with CompanyX will be December 9th. I haven’t confirmed it yet, but it makes sense for a variety of reasons, which I can’t really talk about yet. I’m health, probably in some of the best fitness of my life, and the family has everything we need.
Life is good.
