You pretty much know all of the major news from yesterday, my cardiologist appointment went fine (weâ€™ll see what the blood reveals), and supposedly the screw didnâ€™t puncture my tire (Iâ€™ll check again later to ensure the tire hasnâ€™t lost pressure).
The rest of my day was spent attempting to do work, as well as literally put parts of my house in order; there is so much more for me to do on both of those fronts. The rain put the kibosh on my desire to hash, so I forced myself into the basement for 45 minutes on the trainer.
I know COVID Times will not be looked at fondly by history, but for me it has been rewarding. I know, Iâ€™m privileged and have been able to work, from home, and collect 100% of my salary and benefits. For me, and perhaps many others, it has been a time of rediscovery. In cleaning/organizing parts of my house Iâ€™ve neglected for over a decade I have rediscovered items, techniques, and memories. Case and point: a shower rod.
More than thirty years ago when I lived in apartments I used to haul my dirty laundry to the laundry room (some things have already been rediscovered) and then home to fold. However, my â€œniceâ€ shirts didnâ€™t get folded, they were hung in a closet. So that I didnâ€™t dry them to death in the machine Iâ€™d allow them to hang for awhile to finish drying on an expandable shower rod before moving them into the closet. Last week, while cleaning around the dryer, I unearthed my old shower rod and am using it today to allow the clothes I have washed this morning to drip dry for a few hours before I attempt to (hopefully) rediscover the dryer as a functioning appliance. Wish me luck.
Today will be all about the coding, and making meals from the abundance of food that currently lives in my house. I should not return to a grocery store for over a week in order to use up some of the food Iâ€™ve â€œgatheredâ€ recently.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 195.2 pounds (-1.8 from last weekâ€™s weigh-in); as long as I continue to lose weight my retort to someone telling me to â€œGo away!â€ will be, â€œIâ€™m trying; Iâ€™m losing weight as fast as I can!â€ ðŸ˜‚
