Kallie in Cali – A lonely husband’s log – Day 2
Today didn’t go quite how I wanted it to go. I lost structure and got distracted and demotivated a lot. We’ll see if I can get better for tomorrow.
7:30 am – Wake up for an 8:00am workday start from home
Noon – quick jaunt to the local post office to send off some last minute gifts, a netflix movie, and a textbook I sold online. Also stop at the Family Dollar for some milk.
5:00 pm – Return a bathing suit for Kallie to target, then I took a trip over to best buy to pick up new computer speakers. I was given a $50 gift card to best buy for my birthday, so I was going to pick up something there since my current speakers have a terrible and an unresolvable buzz coming from them. When I started to browse, I noticed how ridiculously high the prices were. I pulled up the amazon app on my phone and pretty much every speaker option was $20-$30 higher at best buy. I was also interested in picking up a nice wireless N router, but those are way too expensive, and still about $20-$30 more than amazon’s prices. I left without getting anything.
While in transit, I texted 2 separate friends to see if they were interested in grabbing a pint of beer at rock bottom, which used to be a weekly wednesday tradition with some friends. Both could not go. I tried not to let it get me too down, but my sails lost some wind.
7:00pm – Come home, move computer desk down stairs to the new lair in the basement. I grabbed something to eat too, and started to watch “Who’s still standing?”, which is really stupid. Once I had my fill of stupid, I came back downstairs to keep working at arranging my new set up.
9:00pm – My idea was to organize stuff downstairs for bit after eating, and then go for a run at 9. Kallie called me pretty much at 9, which was just enough reason for me to lose focus on running. I have to be up around 4:45am in the morning to make breakfast for the labor halls with the Living Ministry, so I should just call it a night, and hope to rest enough to be motivated to catch up tomorrow. bed by 10.
