I think I’ve started this year off with a bang. I want one day where I do nothing but sleep and hopefully not have any nightmares about frozen pipes. We found 21 breaks in the lines and now there’s a lot of holes in the walls everywhere. I’ve got a phone call into a private party that does drywall repair, and I’m going to need to go through and sweep and mop all of the floors in the place once that’s completed. The pipe exploration was a full days worth of work on Saturday. I’m still wincing at the cost and partially dreading the drywall cost.
On the bright side, I’ve gotten a few more things packed up. This was primarily Saturday. Backing up a bit…
Thursday, New Year’s Eve, we went to the Hateful Eight. It was pretty entertaining. Pretty much Reservoir Dogs gone western style. Not as gory as some of Tarantino’s other ones.
Friday night, we ended up going bowling. I haven’t done that in ages. My arm’s a little sore too as a result and my hands a little sore too.
Saturday, besides the frozen pipe repair work I spent all day doing, we went to see the Young Dubliners.
I haven’t caught a show in a while and the last irish rock based show I’ve seen was Flogging Molly ages and ages ago. It was a good time.
And that brings me to today. I actually got a manicure and did some shopping with a friend who’s commissioned me to make a baby blanket for a shower she has coming up (I’ll post pictures of it later when I’m completely through with it). I also went and bought myself a planner. Part of my goals for this year is to reorganize myself and figure out who the hell I am now. I think I know who I am, but I’ve lost touch with doing things I use to enjoy doing, that brought me focus, and made me happy because I was constantly criticized for those habits. The planner is partially set up, but I haven’t started to fill it in (ah! I’m behind!).
There’s a lot more I want to write, but I will hold off on that later. You know, and make use of that planner.
