It has been some time since I last posted here. Instagram tends to be the only place that I semi-regularly get anything posted these days!
I’ve fully transitioned my daily writings and question to a written journal and I’ll probably keep that way. It’s easier for me to jot things down throughout the day and I can take it out with me too. Plus, I combine it with my daily collage as well so I don’t foresee me switching back to digital entries. Perhaps in the future if I decide to only occasionally journal, but it’s been a great outlet for me to date.

Day Six ~ August 8th, 2018
It was a productive day!
I got up early and out the door to run errands right away. It was amazing to have all the out of home stuff done by 10 a.m. *thumbs up* Getting that all out-of-the-way meant I was able to focus on getting a bunch of stuff done around the house afterwards. I don’t like going in-and-out because it makes it impossible to set aside any time to relax. Chill out time is essential to charging my energy and patience stores for the week!
I was kind of hoping to get out for a run later this evening, but I think I will do it tomorrow morning. I want to give my new Under Armor trail shoes a whirl so I’m thinking around a 8-9 km on the nearby local trail. It’s flat and easy which is perfect because I’m not sure how well these shoes will break in and I don’t want to destroy my feet. Especially with a race on Sunday!
I intended to do a once or twice a week post with the daily Q’s since moving my daily journaling to hand written journals, but with summer my schedule seemingly bursting at the seams, sitting down at the computer for blogging is a challenge these days.
As well, we no longer have cable so my son is spending a lot of time outside. This is awesome, kids should be outside, but it also means that I am right there with him. So while it’s wonderful, I don’t end up getting a lot of things done inside the house that need to get done (like daily chores) or other things I would like to get done (like blogging) several days during the week.
😛 I could have worse problems!

Day 109 ~ February 24th, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: ambuscade ~ an ambush.
I didn’t get much sleep last night… I feel asleep after 2am and then I woke up at 6:30am and ended sort of dozing on the couch after that until my son woke up. It’s too damn cold to do much else in the morning when you’re sleepy. I thought about doing my workout, but I clearly couldn’t muster the motivation to start it then.
Day 70 ~ January 16th, 2018
Today’s Calendar Word: otiose ~ lazy; slothful
Today’s Calendar Quote: “Virtue is more to man than either water or fire. I have seen men die from treading on water and fire, but I have never seen a man die from treading the course of virtue.” — Confucius
I finally started playing Assassin’s Creed Origins this afternoon and it is so FUN!! I only had a few hours maximum of playing time today, but I’ll be able to play a whole bunch tomorrow. Looking forward to it!

Day 30 ~ 54 micro expansions/3 sets
Super Saiyan Challenge
Day 30 ~ 350 sit-ups (100/100/100/50) + 800 squats (200 split/150 basic/100 shrimp/150 sumo/50 jump/100 plie/50 pistol) — I liked doing the crazy amount of push-ups and squats for this challenge, but the high sit-up reps became the part I didn’t like much at all.
With this day it finishes up #66 on my Bucketlist as well 😀
Day 21 ~ Game with the best story
Knights of the Old Republic, Halo, Fable, and Legend of Zelda
Day 22 ~ A game sequel that disappointed you
Lego Indiana Jones 2 — I actually ended up returning it. Something I’ve never done for a video game before or since!
Days 23 to 30
