My life, and my ambition to do things productive, tend to go in waves. I’ve noticed over the years that I tend to be less productive at the beginning of summer, the end of summer, and the end of the year.
My good productive time is usually in the fall, and sporadically through the rest of the year. I’m looking forward to fall and hoping I feel more productive. Lately the only thing I’ve been productive at is video games, but I’m not sure that qualifies.
In an effort to be somewhat productive, I’m forcing myself to sit down and write this post. Let’s update on a few things going on.
I’m still biking to work and enjoying the commute. Luckily I’ve managed to miss the majority of rain storms. I got my first flat tire a few weeks ago. I noticed it when I came out at the end of the day, and I called my wife to come rescue me. She was happy to do so and posted the pictures of me loading my bike on the back of my Jeep to let everyone know she came to my rescue. A few days later I got another flat tire. I noticed this one at home. The cause of this one was a small piece of wire, and I’m thinking the bike shop may have missed it when they replaced the tube the first time.
Then, earlier this week, I got another flat. This one happened on the way to work at just past the half way mark. I had to walk the bike three or four miles and ended up being about an hour late to work. Even with a few flat tires, I still like biking better than driving.
Dream talks about wanting a house sometimes. It’s not a burning desire like she had when we bought our first house, but it comes up once in a while. We’re both still happy with renting. In fact, yesterday we called the maintenance guy to fix an alarm sensor and patch a spot on the ceiling. And our weekends are wide open to do whatever we want. Time and money… we have more of both while renting, and that was the goal.
We’ve been seeing a little bit more of grandmother and I also made some time to talk to my brother (the one without kids). I have a post sitting, waiting for me to post it with some updates on the toxic grandparents. I’ll be posting that soon so that I can get everyone caught up on that saga.
I can officially say I’ve been somewhat productive now.
What’s on your mind? Do you tend to see productivity in waves also? Anything else you want to chat about?
