Feelin’ Mellow

February 19, 2010 · 1 comment

Not much new to report, dear reader.  It feels kind of strange to be out of the habit of blogging.  I mean, I’m sure I still have something to say, but I’m not exactly sure what.

I feel pretty good right now.  Composed and relatively serene.  When we had the snow day last Wednesday, one of my buddies beat feet over to my place because he was going “stir crazy”.  I didn’t invite him over, but I was ok with the company.  My point is that I wasn’t going stir crazy.  My apartment is a comfortable place for me, which, I suppose, is as it should be.

I vacuumed the rugs today – which is a stretch from my usual weekly cleaning (I usually do quite a bit more) – but that was enough to bring a sort of calm to my thought processes.  Make no mistake, dear reader:  feng shui works.

That said, I’d dearly love to stumble over the motivation to clean all this crap off my desk and to organize my kitchen-cum-workroom.  The clutter (though organized) isn’t getting to me yet, but I’m sure I’d feel a lot freer and be more efficient without it.

I have another appointment with the opthamologist tomorrow at noon.  The pirate patch is off and I’ve been putting the drops in my eye religiously as instructed all day, but I’m not looking forward to squirting that creme into my eye before I go to bed tonight.

I think I’m going to bake a cake or two tomorrow afternoon for the opthamologist.  I’m sure that my co-pays and insurance company will compensate him for his work, but I still feel like saying Thank You.  He’s Greek, so if anyone knows what the customary Greek TY gesture is (no matter how old – I dig anachronisms), please let me know.  A cake is the best I’ve come up with so far.

I had some work-related news this evening, but it’s a bit premature to discuss it here and now – it’s begun to occupy my thoughts, though.

On the serenity thing – it’s pretty cool.  I’m pretty effin mellow right now.  I have some financial worries niggling at the back of my mind, but I’m not paying attention to those voices too much right now.  I’ll probably always wish I had more money, so I think I’ll just keep on paying my bills for now.  It would probably be a good idea if I stopped buying stuff for a month or two.

That said, I bought myself a new bass the other night.  It’s going to cost me $329, but the website will take that out of my account in 3 $110 payments over the next three months.  Not too big a deal.  I’d still like to buy a (leather) loveseat, tv and dvd player, but I think that can wait for now (I’ve survived this long without those things).  Once I get my taxes done, I’ll hopefully have enough money to purchase or put a down payment on a motorcycle.  But that too is a “we’ll see” situation:  it may end up getting de-prioritized at some point in the future.

I think I’m going to hike Windham High Peak this Saturday.  It’s the easiest mountain left of the eight – about 7 miles round trip, on a trail the whole way, and not really all that strenuous.  I may even invite my fraternity brother from New Paltz along with me.  My right eye is still blurry and I’ve been saving this mountain for a “just in case” kind of situation – mostly if I somehow started running out of time and needed to squeeze a second hike into a weekend.  I think this eye thing qualifies as one of those “cases”.  My vision is still a bit blurry and mentally I may still be a bit gun shy about sticking my face into thick branches (which is exactly what I’ll be doing when I climb the Lone/Rocky and Friday/Balsam Cap combinations).  This weekend is probably a good time to take it easy.  Hell, I’ve been taking it pretty easy all week so far.

I heard that Greek men like 13 year old boys. Hope that helps.
