Most Stressful Time of the Year
I like to think I’m pretty versatile and can handle just about anything. But the last couple weeks have been mentally tough. I’ve been spending some extra time at work trying to get all my stuff done. Doesn’t help that I haven’t really worked a full week since Thanksgiving. But now that basketball season is here, and we’re following four teams instead of two, it’s more than my brain can handle at times. Plus we had one of our board operators quit, so that’s more stuff that we need to find fill in’s for.
When things are going smoothly, it all goes really well, but lately all it’s taken is one little thing to send my whole world out of whack.
Today was nice though. I didn’t have anything work related to do. I slept in until 8:00am and then got up and eased into the day. Crazy… I remember thinking my 10AM classes at K-State were SO early… and I remember being out and about in the mornings thinking… wow so much goes on while I’m sleeping… haha. Of course I used to stay up until 3am or 4am in those days. Now a days my bedtime is a strict 10:30pm.
Went and saw a radio play version of “It’s a Wonderful Life”. It was pretty good. I found myself somewhat confused as it started though since each actor played several characters. Took me a while to feel out who was who. But the local Community Theater did a really good job, and it was a fun way to spend part of the afternoon.
Then I got to play some Zelda! It’s been several days for sure. And man it is just such a cool game. I could sit and play the game all night, but I wanted to get a short blog written, and get to bed.
So that’s what I did. Onward into next week. I have a new starter coming in for the Toronado tomorrow so I need to get that swapped out. The starter hasn’t been engaging every time, and it’s starting to get less reliable. But $50 for a rebuilt starter isn’t too bad. Should last a few more years. So that’s my project for tomorrow night. Shouldn’t be too bad… and I’ve got a garage to do it in!
