Good morning and happy Tuesday kids. Today I have a really busy day to say the least. Right now, I’m waiting to see the urologist, but I’m not sure if he is just going to look at the CT scan results with me or eventually stick a camera up my pee pee. I hope it’s not the latter, since there hasn’t been any more blood in my urine.
Later on, I have an appointment with my GP, so we can go over the results from my lower back MRI that was performed last week. No matter what the MRI results are, I’m going to request that I’m cleared to go back to work as of tomorrow, because my lower back has been getting better. Other than that, life is good.
Today I haven’t had any alcohol in 45 days and I’m loving it. But one thing that I have noticed is, that since I haven’t been drinking, I’m taking responsibility of things that I was neglecting while drunk.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s all good, it’s just that most of the time I’m way too busy and tired to even dedicate time to my hobby or even get some alone time.
Good afternoon and happy Monday kids! Well at least it is for me, since it’s Labor Day and I’m off from the salt mines.
As for me? I am happy to say, that today I have been without drinking for one month and eight days and I feel fucking great. One thing about this time around is, that it hasn’t been as hard as the other times. I’m not going to lie, there has been a couple of times, when I wanted to have a couple of beers, and that includes today, but if I don’t keep entertaining them stupid thoughts, they go away the same way they came in.
Good morning and happy Saturday kids, I hope that you enjoy it to the fullest.
As for me? Yesterday after I got done with work, I threw my phone, laptop and tablet in my backpack and went for a walk in the park. The truth is, that even though the park is huge and is right across the street from my home, I have only been there for parties and BBQs, I haven’t been there for a jog or a walk in years.
Do not get me wrong, I really enjoy working from home but being inside 24/7 without any contact with my co-workers, the coffee guys and other people who I interacted with daily, has been affecting me mentally. The crazy shit is, that I have been working from home since March and only figured it out recently, because of my crazy daily mood swings. Right now, I am planning on making sure that I make time to go out for walks, even if it is just around the corner.
For a long time now, I have been trying to get my wife to go with me on trips to places that I like, like nature walks, museums and the zoo, but unlike me, she has never been interested in visiting such places because she’s either afraid of traveling in planes, trains and buses, because she’s claustrophobic, because she’s afraid of wildlife, specially snakes or she finds it boring. And to be honest with you, all these years, I have resented her for that, but not anymore.
The way that I am looking at it now is, that I’m blessed and cursed at the same time, because even though she doesn’t like the same things that I like, she doesn’t mind giving me my own space, so I can go out and enjoy them by myself. So, my plan is simple, I am going to start calling Sundays my self-care day. What that means is, that I will plan a different activity to do every Sunday, like nature walks, a visit to a museum, zoo or anything that I find interesting here in New York City. To be honest, for years, people have been telling me that there is so much to do alone here in New York City, plus the majority are free or really cheap.
