Day 130 ~ ticking off some of the ‘to do’ list

Day 130 ~ March 18th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: erubescent ~ a reddening or blushing.

Today’s Calendar Quote:It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away,
so that when I’ve gone and come back, I’ll find it at home.
” — Rumi

I will make the cookies I’ve had halfway prepped for quite some time today. I actually looked over the recipe and pulled the rest of the ingredients out so it makes sense to just get them done now. Here’s hoping that I get them done so I can stop shuffling the stuff around the kitchen counters haha

Day 129 ~ expansion headway

Day 129 ~ March 17th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: eggcorn ~ a word or phrase that is a seemingly logical alteration of another word or phrase that sounds similar.

This morning is the earliest morning yet with Bolt awake at about 3:30am…. By the evening I know I’ll definitely be feeling it and I likely be cranky. I can guarantee it’ll take me no time at all to fall asleep tonight when I finally get to bed.

Day 128 ~ outside boings

Day 128 ~ March 16th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: scaramouch ~ a boastful but cowardly person.

Today’s Calendar Quote:To be able to practice five things everywhere under heaven constitutes perfect virtues…. [They are] gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness and kindness.” — Confucius

I love today’s word because I didn’t realize that it was actually a real word. I totally thought it was made up so it was cool to learn otherwise haha

I was up for the day at four thirty this morning. It wouldn’t be so bad if it was already getting light out, but it’s still so damn dark. Despite the early rise it was a great day and it was beautiful outside as well.

Played out on the trampoline with my son several times and my legs are likely to feel that tomorrow. You wouldn’t think that jumping around like that would cause any kind of soreness, but it sure does!

Day 127 ~ small feats

Day 127 ~ March 15th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: furuncle ~ a boil.

Today’s Calendar Quote:Because of deep love, one is courageous. Because of frugality, one is generous. Because of not daring to be ahead of the world, one becomes the leader of the world.” — Lao Tzu

These last few nights of so little sleep is starting to take a toll on me. I am so exhausted.
But Bolt is doing great, he’s such a good boy so far and listens surprisingly well. I’ve never had a dog before so it’s been an interesting experience.


Day 126 ~ unfocused noodle

Day 126 ~ March 14th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: coterminous ~ having the same border or covering the same area.

Today’s Calendar Quote:To different minds, the same world is a hell, and a heaven.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thankfully the Bolt, the puppy, slept through the night because I was so tired. Still up at basically five, but better than several times throughout the entire night.

My son was extremely unfocused when he got home this afternoon so it took him a handful of minutes before he even realized there was a dog around.
And he was even awake until nearly 1AM! I have no idea why that happened, but I’ll bet he sleeps great tonight. Fingers crossed!

Day 125 ~ new stuffs!

Day 125 ~ March 13th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: chiliad ~ a thousand things or a thousand years.

Today’s Calendar Quote:May the forlorn find new hope, constant happiness and prosperity.” — Shantideva

Ugh! I did not get much sleep last night as it was the pup’s first night here. So I was up often to make sure there were no accidents. I can’t wait for my son to meet him!

Also, today is the release day for the new expansion for Assassin’s Creed OriginsThe Curse of the Pharaohs! The download is over 15GB so I ended up falling asleep on the couch as I waited for it to finish doing that. Totally unintentional, but at least the game was ready for me to play when I woke up 🙂


Day 124 ~ tape the eyelids open

Day 124 ~ March 12th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: uptalk ~ a manner of speaking in which declarative sentences are uttered with rising intonation at the end, as if they were questions.

Today’s Calendar Quote:Hurt none by word or dee, be consistent in well-doing: be moderate in food, dwell in solitude and give yourselves to meditation- this is the advice of Buddhas.” — Buddha

I’ve been up early the last few days and I am feeling today! I love getting my workout done by breakfast so much, but I so bagged come the late afternoon. It is a struggle to not take a nap. I hope I get acclimated to this schedule quickly because I don’t like feeling exhausted.

I go pick up the puppy this evening and I can’t wait for my son to meet Bolt on Wednesday when he gets back. He will be so excited! I can already picture all the crazy wiggles and running back and forth haha
