Seems like there are so many things to do, and no time to do them all in. Then the evening comes around and I do none of them.
Did start the most recent Zelda game on the switch. It’s nice playing a game like that, there’s a story but also you can just walk around and find and do things. It feels good for me not to do nothing on the internet in the evening. I should try couch gaming more often.
I should’ve walked down the road with the wheelbarrow and got some grit to spread on our road and drive. The ice has been terrible in the mornings. Strangely even worse when it’s about 3-5 degC. However, I didn’t and now it’s 10:30pm at night.
The electrician bodged his job and managed to drill a huge hole through the main banister post on the stair case. “I don’t seem to be able to get through this wall”. I then point out the hole. “Oh…must’ve measured it wrong”. Great…
Supposedly he’s going to get someone to fix it. Which is fine, but it’ll still look worse.
Also when he was hammering and drilling in the garage, the vibrations knocked my camera off the shelf. Not only did it fall and get a big gouge in it (still seems to work okay though) but it fell on top of a family vase I’d moved “out of the way” and broke a chunk of that. I’ve glued it back together, although I couldn’t find a small piece. Wife hasn’t seen that yet, and didn’t want to bring it up given the whole hole situation as well.
Still wish I’d gone with the other guy…even though he could’ve made some mistakes too.
Youngest was ill today so I was at home with her. Felt like I’ve not done any work in ages (multiple all day workshop things, Christmas party, a day off…) and it’s all piling up.
I really need to figure out Christmas presents for my family too…it’ll soon be mid-December at this rate.
General feeling of overwhelmness. I should go to bed and start a new day tomorrow.
