PS:38 – 36

Standard

The big question on the 36 is what do I want to do? I’d love to get out of town, and RELAX. I wish I could just go and chill out with the drone, maybe do some flying around the ocean?

Sadly I have no real plans, no party plans, just sadly becoming another day, one of which I’ll likely want just to sleep.

For now, work is the thing of the evening, just go go go. Ticket queue is huge, customers needing stuff, a project I need to wrap up tonight even if it’s after Lilly goes to bed! Going to knock things down! Got to get out from under this pile!

PS:37 – Healthier

Standard

Had a doctor’s appointment the other day, and his big suggestion was to lose at least 15lbs – I could stand to do it.

While in the past I’ve been over 300lbs, right now I’m up again! I was heading towards the 200lbs mark…. but sitting still has not done me any favors.

So I grabbed some things to help lower blood sugar & help with weight loss, namely Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic, and Cinnamon – not sure what the effect will be but interested to tie that in with possibly a bike or elliptical soon.

Back in shape soon!

PS:36 – The Week Ahead

Standard

This week is going to be a busy one! This morning even I had a phone call from a customer wanting to look at a server option for his customer to help tune up Apache response time so he can gain some milliseconds for SEO sake.

Aside from that possible spin-up, I’m reviewing a server in how to best break down things into three other servers (as it’s overloaded) hoping to have at least 50% of it split off by middle of next month (if not sooner).

I have a website to finish, another server migration of 2 VPS -> 1 Dedicated, and as of about 5 minutes ago, malware/hack cleanup of a company’s set of websites. Oi.

Glad I got some sleep under the belt this weekend, and just now with the kiddo as she had been up since 7am-ish and wasn’t stopping but it required me for the nap apparently! So she (still sleeping) and I got a nap in, and I’m now up going to sneak in a pile of work as she rests!

PS:35 – New Video!

Standard

Got out there again and made some fresh footage! Love the controls! I do think I need a new set of propellers (little wobble), but too high mountains = good steady breeze!

Hope you guys like it! Want to head to some places I’ve not shot/recorded, but to I’ve got photos which I took, thinking it’s time to revive Flickr! For now, though, here’s one:

Oh okay! You’ve talked me into it, here’s another (from the iPhone):

PS:33 – Photography!

Standard

So yesterday to take a breath from the building stress of work, I drove out to one of my favorite spots to relax and met a nice lady who took a picture of Lilly and Me!

But look at those wildflowers! I want to go out there again soon, so calm and peaceful (and a workout!) got to chat with Anne who asked for some more fun places nearby to shoot, gave her some tips 🙂 And her friend took my email address to pick my brain later! Nice folks, always enjoy chats with photographers!

It was beautiful for sure, maybe a new drone video soon if I take Skippy out there this weekend!

I do have a GI appointment tomorrow, may include the follow-up scope from my hospital visit last year, but we shall see. A little nervous, really don’t want to be put under again, left me off for a few weeks.

But I will leave with a last photo, so it’s on something happy – have a good weekend!

PS:32 – 36.

Standard

In about 10 days I’ll be 36. Been one crazy year. Got nothing I can think of to do for 36, so much going on in life that  I really just continually want to take a nap.

Praying for change. Praying for a better year.

PS:31 – WORK!

Standard

Work covers about 75% of my time lately. I haven’t had any time to work on personal projects, company websites, or nap. Out of all of those I’d really love a nap.

Been working on servers, customer tickets, projects for customers, you name it. I’ve been doing it and keeping peace in the ticket queue. I need sleep though, body is starting to hurt more and more 🙁

PS:29 – Dear Relaxation

Standard

Dear Relaxation,

It has been a while. Remember when we used just to go and drive? Oh, those were the days!

Remember when every moment of every day wasn’t “GO GO GO!”? Even when we had our last 9-to-5, there were steak dinners, pizza with co-workers, there were times we had, oh boy. Fun.

Now I feel like you are a million miles away. Even the things meant to be with you, are stressful! Oh, how I wish you’d come back.

We need to plan something soon because I need it desperately.

With much love,
Chuck
