What WAS I thinking?!

Recent snippets from the Random Thoughts file I keep on the RPi, update regularly, and upload to a public folder on Google Drive.


17 Oct. 2012 – Wednesday

~04:45 1.) After yet another long, restful sleep, the bathroom scales were kind to me this morning. That’s a nice start to a Humpday.

16 Oct. 2012 – Tuesday

~13:45 1.) So this afternoon finds me surfing travel sites on the web, thinking about treating myself to a vacation next year. Wish I knew for sure what the economy is going to be like in 2013.

~10:30 1.) There’s a steady rain falling outside, making this a good day to stay in and take things easy.

15 Oct. 2012 – Monday

~14:30 1.) Outside chores done (banking, shopping, dropping clothes off at the dry cleaners, etc.) and I’m about to get into my “evening’s” R&R mode. Could do laundry, but it can wait till tomorrow. For this being a “returning” day, I’ve already got enough accomplished.

~Noon 1.) The transition from vacation mode back to normal life is proceeding smoothly. 2.) Today’s addition of chess apps to both my Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 will make my next extended trip even more enjoyable, whichever of the two devices I choose to travel with.

~06:30 1.) After the first good sleep in over a week, I’m devoting this day to a return to the “normal” schedule. Today will be a “returning” day, and tomorrow will be the first “normal” day.

11 Oct. 2012 – Thursday

~13:30 1.) It’s been a productive Thursday: chatted with T. a couple of times, wrapped up all remaining chess work, picked up the week’s new comics from Alien Worlds, grocery shopping at HEB, did a load of laundry, and called the Ft. Wayne hotel where I’ll be staying Fri. and Sat. nights. All that remains is for me to do some light cleaning in here then relax my way into an early sleep. Shutting down the RPi now. The next time I fire it up will be Sunday afternoon. Hopefully.

~05:30 1.) Raining this morning, darn it. Hope it’s not raining tomorrow morning when I head out to hail a cab.

~04:15 1.) Today’s entries in this file will hopefully be the last for a few days. If tomorrow morning goes as planned I’ll be up and out of here super early, allowing no time to even fire up the RPi, and not returning until Sunday afternoon or so. 2.) This morning’s “dress rehearsal” for tomorrow’s early departure went well, by the way.

10 Oct. 2012 – Wednesday

~10:00 1.) Have done about everything that needs doing inside, and am now working on the day’s outside chores. Have just picked up the shirt from Penner’s and am now headed over to the Mall.

~07:30 1.) Very pleased with the amount of work I’m getting done today. 2.) May indulge in an afternoon nap. That would actually fit in pretty well with the new schedule.

~03:00 1.) Actually, I’m less stressed about the flights on Friday and Sunday than I’ve been for the last several weeks. Everything appears to be falling into place rather nicely.

~01:30 1.) Am up super-early, just as I intend to be for the next several mornings while catching early flights. This part of my trip prep seems to have kicked into gear.

09 Oct. 2012 – Tuesday

~10:30 1.) Have moved smoothly through the day’s first round of chores, nearly ready to head out to Penner’s and maybe the airport.

~07:45 1.) Last night’s sleep was the most restless ever, in terms of tossing and turning, if the way my futon had slid on its frame is any guide. Probably time for a new mattress; if that helps my sleeping, it’ll certainly improve my general health.
