Song: “Dancing In The Moonlight” by Toploader
I didn’t sleep very well again last night but once again it’s mostly my fault because I fell asleep on the couch. I really need to get a handle on that. I used to have a little sign that I put on the couch that just said “GO TO BED”. I think I need to make another one.
Today was one of those days where I had to keep checking my phone to make sure of what day it was. It’s not that I think it’s a different day, it’s just that I have no idea what day it is. Not a big deal but I have some stuff going on this week and I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss it.
I was quite busy today, working on a few different projects. One (and possibly) two of the fans in the printer are wearing out. They’re both pretty small and it’s been my experience that larger fans tend to last longer. Someone already had the same problem and designed a new bottom/fan enclosure for the printer controller that uses two 120mm fans. The first part is printing now and should be done tomorrow afternoon.
It was really nice out today – sunny and warm for the most part. The weather is about to change, though, so I grabbed a shovel and dug out all the carrots and a good amount of the potatoes in the garden. The carrots were pretty stumpy but some of the potatoes turned out nice and big. There were a ton of worms in the soil, too, and I think that means that the garden is pretty healthy.
The clinic called today. I’m always wary when I see it on the call display but I answered it and it was good news – my GP got the results of my bone scan back and my bone density is well above average. This is fantastic, because now I can FINALLY pursue my dreams and become an MMA fighter.
All joking aside, I was pretty happy to hear about that. It’s nice to get good news.
Talked to my folks for a while today, they’re still recovering from their trip but are otherwise doing well. Not too much exciting going on there.
J and I have been watching the HBO Chernobyl series. I understand they made quite a few artistic decisions and created a couple of characters, but boy did they ever blanket the production with the whole faceless-dreary-and-worn-Soviet-bloc-concrete-and-steel-oppressive-hopelessness. Wow. It’s like the shot the whole thing on black and white film and then… left it like that. Nothing anywhere is new. I’ve found the carpet in the hotel to be fascinating. The pattern, the wear… I have no idea who found or made that carpet for the show but they should get an award.
I have a Dr W appointment tomorrow and a Dr C appointment on Friday. I may also volunteer at that nearby church for a bit on Thursday. We’ll see what happens.
