So today’s a humid warm housefull of mess that I’m currently slowly cleaning up. Doing laundry, making coffee, watching Adam The Woo on YouTube and just living out a Sunday.
I have to cut the back lawn this afternoon at some point. We have a pooper scooper that’s like a dustpan on a handle and another piece on a handle to ‘sweep’ the crap into it and let me tell you, it’s bloody helpful in keeping the crap under control. No bending, no hurting the back (any more than usual) etc. So yay!
Yesterday was a shit show trying to get out to have a picnic at the ‘usual’ park we’ve been at…we get there and it’s all blocked off by police. Apparently there is a triathalon there this weekend so we, with a car full of pups, tents, blankets and so on, we try to find another pet friendly park. We find one and drive that way….across the river, another 13k away though and when we get there, a new sign showing no dogs is up….well that’s wonderful…so back up the hill we go, grab gasoline and find us yet ANOTHER park to go to. As we’re driving the drivers are their usual horrible slow driving idiots, one test driving a Cadillac, and other idiots….by this time its’ about 2:30pm….we go corner after corner into a park that both ‘has washrooms’ and walking paths…find out when we get there that its’ more trails than anything else…so no where to set up…we come across an area kind of in the middle of a stream..Thinking we finally have a place to set up camp, we start and a loud mouth idiotic family come down right where we are, and start taking family photos in this exact spot…so the dogs are both sniffing the people and we’re trying to pull them back, trying to set up and just getting extra irritated at people…so fine we pack up and go up to the top of the valley (3pm now), set up the tent (btw, NO washrooms as the website says, way to go city of Edmonton, two for two now) and eat our food as we’re both starving. We enjoy about an hour of sitting there without idiots and then make our way home. After all of that, I was super lazy and was fine just putzing around home and around the gazeebo. Later on I did go for a small bike ride and got myself an iced coffee. Just a shit show of a day though.
We’ll see how work goes this week. It’ll be crazy yes so we’ll see…
So just sitting here at the coffee shop enjoying a bit of my friday. I had a lunch outside with a coworker so that was nice. A sub and lawn and sun. Not too bad. 🙂
I have done some drawing but more just messy scribbling. It’s nice to be at the coffee shop. New barrista and she’s not hard to look at let me tell you. Made me a good cold iced latte so that’s nice on a plus 25ish day (so far).
At work today I perhaps did a bit of dirty pool to get someone to work and design some things that he keeps saying have already been thought of. I provided drawings to the consultants and stated MY plan of being done such and such by end of next week, which means I promised, which means it needs to be drawn by me which means it needs to be designed by HIM…and cced the bigger boss too. Well they gave me the super tight impossible deadline so I have to set some deadlines myself and if it’s waiting on design I need to protect myself and keep things moving instead of doing what is ‘planned chaos’ later on when they finally in 5 minutes design things the very last second that they took weeks to ‘think and not design’ and then I’ll be left to draw the entire set in a panic thus sending out something half cooked and full blame will go to me from this guy. Hopefully I keep setting things up so it makes him do some work.
Like a lot of people these days, no one wants to do the work but everyone wants the credit right?
So not sure what we’re doing entirely this weekend besides another ‘repeat’ picnic in the park. I don’t mind the picnics but what I don’t like (and mentioned earlier I’m sure) was just doing something over and over and over…also don’t like doing something just to ‘keep someone busy’. But like a good guy, I’ll suck it up and i’ll go and see what I can enjoy out of the whole thing.
I think we ‘may’ go to a movie on Sunday though I will see when that time comes. I’m game for it (as usual for almost anything) but depends on someone else and what THEY will do this weekend.
I’ve held back on doing a ton of chores lately as it along with the 40 other things a day (it seems) has been exhausting me with summer doing it’s own exhausting thing too.
I’m trying to book a dental x-ray for our old pup so will wait until they call me back. I got a hold of some wenchy angry female (no surprise) and so they said that the doctor would call me back to schedule in something.
I may go look at some shirts in a near by store but other than that, I think i’ll do some more drawing, do a bit of wandering, bit of window shopping and not sure what else. At least it’s all me time (besides the xray thing).
Not sure what else to write…
She wonders why I’m so tired all the time. It’s irritating her. She’s telling me maybe you need to see a doctor, maybe this maybe that. NO ONE hates summer, no one lets it depress them yadda yadda yadda…
I’m just exhausted and there isn’t really explanation needed for her. I’m just tired out. I’m tired of being the one that’s doing everything and responsible for everything both at home and at work (with my own stuff that is, not claiming to be J J and thinking that I run the world). On top of that, the weather is warm and muggy. Just tires me out. That and not having any chance to just relax at home too. No watching Star Trek, no watching other shows of mine without the absolute constant hum of racist comments about people she hates streaming in to interrupt things. I’m tired from the new pup and ME doing it all, I’m tired from just everything to do with the wife. The exercise isn’t what’s tiring me out which is what she’s ‘assuming’, which it’s not lol…
I am however looking forward to my Friday afternoon though for a bit of recharge, heaven forbid if I ever lose these. I think a good recharge would be to see my family too, just me but that won’t happen for a while either.
My bit of recharging during my days are chatting with my best bud, listening to good programs and COFFEE…
The constant texting all day, the constant angry !!!!!!!!! all day, the constant I TEXTED YOU AND YOU HAVEN’T ANSWERED emails I get if I’m a minute past going uh huh to a racist rant about how brownies are the stupidest humans on the face of the planet (to her), the go go go at work, the assholes at work, then the come home in the heat, the muggy muggy heat, arrive home to be told that the pup pooped in the house and then a reiteration of the brownies rant for another couple hours, while doing dishes or some ot her chore while she sits there irritated about her aforementioned rants, we doa bit of exercise and then it’s up to bed where she wants to (demands) snuggle and so she’s laying in bed watching her shows with me laying behind her and even then (put your arm on meeee)…and at some point I fall asleep to get up middle of the night to do my doggy daddy duty…
Why am I tired?
No idea. Must be something medical. I should go see a doctor. (sarcastic)
Now I KNOW my buddy will know this one. Just had an hour and a bit of trying to activate the PO’s office 365 account through the computer she purchased, of course not having a real email to use or a real care in the world or remembering what was done since she made me do it and use ‘whatever’ email she threw out. So I FINALLY after sheer guessing finally found it and activated it.
Must be nice to be one where they go I NO KNOW HOW YOU FIX and poor bastages come to do it.
I am warm as hell…that’s all I’ll say.
Today we did a workout, good but too damn warm, even in the basement. I barely had energy to move.
So since we have had a puppy guest here, with ME the new pup has been okay but now with the PO, he seems to be turding in the house since ‘he’s distracted by the guest’ although it’s more like she hasn’t spent the time with him outside so then this is what happens. She says how she’s so irritated that he’s doing this…well I don’t know what to tell you Mrs. Experienced and Intuitive. I’m just a dumb guy with no patience that’s both too used to being single before her (more than 10 years ago, still uses THAT one) and just never had to raise anything before (as she has…no wait her parents did). So yeah.
Not much else going on. Maybe a coke?
It’s a blog warrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!
Kidding….Enjoying the blog my best bud wrote about kindness and how at times it’s tough to be kind. I agree absolutely. It’s the chosen few (as he said too) that I choose to be kind to. I choose to be kind to:
-Strangers. People I don’t know, people who have not shown me to be total Smeg-heads (thank you Red Dwarf)
-Where I should. In laws, people working retail jobs at a coffee shop and other service industries. Once I’m past the ‘should’ then I get into the ‘do they make the cut or are they in the other category (which I’ll get to). Older folks. Respect the elders (again unless the elders show to be old a holes).
-Kids and animals. This I try my darnedest. With my latest bouts with my own pup, it can be a tough one but I’d (which I found out) rather punch a post than a pup (thank goodness).
Now the other category is eff you I’m acting if I’m around you:
Bosses. Yep. From my experience in the working world, you have to prove your innocence as I’m assuming you’re a lying dirty scumbag who’s trounced on many people’s backs over the years. Oh hey there how are you today!? How are your kids? Great!!! (soon as I pass the face changes and the thought continuing after is “asshole”).
Rude and bigoted people. Can’t stand these folks. I may act kinder to them but that doesn’t stop the hate within this guy. Bender sayings come to mind.
Closed minded and judgmental people. (Eff yourselves).
So as much as I love the Doctor’s speech that episode, I do see it as reserving kind for the people I deem kindness is for. Basically everyone but a holes. 😀
Monday’s day off. Food of champions.
4 500ml rum and cokes, x 380 = 1520
6 Asahi Beer = x 147 = 882
Beach Body Approved I’m sure. Plus you know, the FOOD she had today too.
Now. She’s went to bed basically as soon as I got home so my plans are to eat, take plants out of the garage since a storm’s passed (thanks for the help hun!*rimshot) and then do some either sketching or watching MY shows.
