Life

Musings on life, work, health, and emotions.

Gratitude 2019wk13

Sunday: It was a gorgeous day outside! We did some yard work and filled up the herb planters with soil for spring. It’s happening!

Monday: I practiced yoga and it honestly felt good.

Tuesday: I get to have a job that lets me puzzle out stuff like this:

(there’s nothing proprietary here)

It’s a piece of a Crystal Report I’m writing. I didn’t need the final if/then statement. And I ended up rewriting the whole thing anyway to include another arithmetic operation. I LOVE THIS STUFF.

Wednesday: Dinner with Mom, as we’ve been doing (with reasonable success) for at least 15 years now.

Thursday: I accidentally overwrote the Crystal Report I was super proud of on Tuesday and it couldn’t be retrieved from backup because I didn’t log out of my computer on Tuesday or Wednesday (long story, but my own fault nonetheless). Pride goeth before a fall, etc etc.

But that snippet I put up there ^^ not only helped me rewrite it, but I actually did a better job the second time around.

Friday: DAY. OFF. We built a raised garden bed, which warrants its own post.

It gets no better.

Saturday: It was sunny and 76 degrees and so good for my soul. I dragged my chair out and read while Murphy played.

Opening Day!

I’ve only been to Phillies opening day once. It was back in the wild and woolly days of Vet Stadium and the “highlight” was Mom and I fleeing our section as people threw full cups of beer over our heads at people in the rows in front of us.

The best panoramic picture I’ve ever taken.

I already have tickets bought to one game this season, and I’m looking to go to at least 2 more.

WM says this song always puts him in the “Spring” frame of mind, and I agree 100%.

Put me in, Coach. I’m ready to play!

Sunday: Dinner with one of my oldest friends from Middle School. No matter how many years go by, we always pick right up like there was never an interruption.

Monday: I applied to give a talk to a tiny conference I attend each December. I gave one in 2017 with a coworker. This time it’ll be me, on my own. When the call for applications came out, I wasn’t going to do it, but that (now-former) coworker poked me that I should. And then an outline slowly gained shape in my head….

I feel like Holmes is garnering a LOT of hate because she broke the grifting glass ceiling for women, but I promise I dislike her only as much as I’d dislike a dude who did the same thing.

…and I applied. I’ll find out in April or May, I think.

Tuesday: Ollie scampered down the hall, taking us all by surprise because he’s a pretty slow, laid back old man these days. But he was happy and felt good.

Wednesday: IT’S SPRING, BABYYYYYYYYYYYYY! I’d like to believe I had a better attitude about winter this year.

Thursday: I am grateful that my dentist isn’t charging me for treating the infection that manifested itself in my gum right next to my dental implant.

I gave blood on Tuesday for the first time since my tooth was fixed.

Friday: The end of the week. TNP has an annual conference, and the 3 weeks preceding that conference are pretty high-tension. The conference starts Sunday and after everyone returns our work cycle relaxes through summer.

Saturday: We had a great 3-mile walk. I finished The Secret Life of Violet Grant.
