morning babble / Saturday 10-16-21
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much. When all else fails – go watch the video!
No coffee today. I’ve got my Lapsand Souchang Black Tea going on. Also, I have some Butterscotch Krimpets remaining. You know how to eat them? I’ll show you at the end.
I haven’t run yet. #289 of my 5K runs will take place on the trails outside. Looking forward to feeling the sun. Maybe a little too much warmth from it for this time of year, but I’ll take it. Also, an update about the upcoming Blue Hen Homecoming 5K Race that’s next Wednesday – I’m not doing. Sorry, Doc – I meant to text you yesterday. I’ve got nobody to watch the kids as I run, BUT more importantly, the work issue has that day totally messed up for me now. I’ll be lucky to get home in time for my wife to get onto her class. Good times. I wish I could, but priorities of the business have to come first in cases like this.
More updates – sadly, I am pausing the 30,000 word goal of the month. I’m struggling in a couple of different ways. One for the time. But – two for the motivation to write Confessions of a Workaholic during a time when . . . I’m unfortunately cranking it up again. Pounding a little extra java / Sleep – I did 5 hours a night this week. I did get a couple extra this morning / All my writing or reading times this week were filled with work on the computer. Watching the Eagles game on Thursday night. I set up shop with my computer there too. By the way – Miss you Zach Ertz. But anyway, back to the “pause”. I feel bad – I really do, because I don’t like this giving up in the middle but things have changed. Geez – my morning routine that I went over a couple weeks ago – all different already. I’m waking up even earlier. I’ll still write when I can. I haven’t released “Empire” and “Elevator to Girth” – so, I am excited about doing them when the window of time opens up.
Typically, I answer questions here, but I feel like I gave updates on a couple things, so – we good? Alright, how to properly eat a Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpet.
