Go ahead and do it

Just go do it. Get up right now and go do it. Then it'll be done. Then you will have time to do the other thing.

I know you don't feel like it, but once you're doing it you'll get into it and the malaise will go away. It'll be a little tough for like 5 or 10 minutes, but your blood will start pumping and it will get easier. So go.

Right now.

I did fucking do it. I got the old washer up out of the basement and to the curb, I got the welding table Hector dumped in the driveway last night into the already packed garage before the rain/snow/whatthefuckever started AND I'm nearly finished with The Job That Dare Not Speak Its Name but is 3.5 months overdue. And 2.5 loads and the dishwasher. SO rocking it today.

Yay for rocking it and getting it done!

I'm getting the bare necessities done--mostly--but not getting done what I want to get done. I need more of these positive stories to encourage me. Also, I need to stop being self-destructive and staying up late. The first 5-10 minutes are gonna suck, but then it'll be better, you say? All right. Fine. You've convinced me. I'm logging off and going to bed now even though I don't want to. Blech.

I think she's sleeping now we get the poker game going without having to worry about her wanting to play 'cause, you know she's terrible at it.

Who wants to deal first?

I did half the thing yesterday. Enough coffee and today it'll be done.

Congrats on all tasks!

This is why I love you guise.

You totally get me.

I grocery shopped. Up early on Sunday morning. Place was just getting busy. I think I didn't forget anything. That and some well timed rain that took yard work off of my list, and there was nothing left to do but guitar stuff.

If you have a sec, you should go do that thing you've been meaning to do... Sneak it in before dinner.

Then game of thrones will be guilt free and much more enjoyable.
