Song: “The Lonely Bull” by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass
Today went by very quickly. I didn’t accomplish a whole lot but I had a decent time.
It was very nice outside. I went out for a short while and enjoyed the mild weather. The wind has come up now and the temperature has dropped (and should drop some more tomorrow) so I’m glad I got out today.
I spent a fair amount of time at my electronics bench. I didn’t build anything but I spent a lot of time thinking about the kinds of things I’d like to build. I’ve got a wide variety of parts – the trick now is figuring out what to do with them.
On my way upstairs for lunch, I noticed there was a package sitting on the front step. There was also a delivery notice in the mailbox for a second parcel. I was home (and awake) all day and I didn’t even hear a knock at the door. Guess they don’t do that anymore.
After lunch I went back to the electronics and puttered around a little more before listening to some records. It felt very good to just sit back and let the music play.
I think this is going to be a good week. I have an appointment with Dr P tomorrow and after that I hope to get a haircut, which I desperately need. Wednesday is my Dr W appointment and I’m looking forward to telling him about how I’m feeling.
Something that’s been going through my head is when is the right time for me to go back to work? I know I’m feeling pretty good right now but that last rut I was stuck in was pretty brutal – there’s no way I’d be able to work during that, and it lasted several weeks. I wish there was a way to know when or if I was going to feel that bad again.
There’s still no way I can go back to my old position. It’s not going to happen. I really hope that when I’m ready to go back that there is another job that I can do. I wouldn’t mind if I had to take some courses or something to be ready for it, either. I guess we’ll see what happens when it’s time.
