He’s got a lot of regular meds (he suffers from E cuniculi), but he also has some extra meds to help with a cold he recently contracted. And on Sundays, he’s got an extra one that kind of takes his meds over the top.
This is a view of our living room, after we moved the bed out. Taken last night, this is where we had dinner around 10:30 PM. Which totally felt weird, because we’re used to eating dinner in bed, while watching TV. It actually looks like a normal room, now.
The master bedroom has been totally reworked, since that time. From the early days before I knew how to demo a wall, to having all the walls removed on the second floor, to pulling up the floor… this room has really been rebuilt.
Looking back, I don’t know how effective of a manager I was. I think I did some things well. And I know for sure I did some things badly. And I have a very specific list of things I would absolutely change, were I to do it all over again.
After work, Liz and I hung out in the kitchen and had a mini game night, to celebrae Valentine’s Day. We cracked open a bottle of wine tha we got from The Blind Horse, a winery we had visited over the holidays when we took a vacation in Kohler.
Normally, you wouldn’t really put a ton of time into cleaning this up. Sure, you’d want to pop off the biggest bits. But so long as things are mostly level… there’s going to be hardwood floor going down on top of the plywood, so what’s the point?
A few moments later, I saw on the Metra site that the Metra Electric line was shut down. The rain and ice storm that happened overnight had caused problems for the wires, and no trains were running. So out of nowhere: the closest thing I, as an adult, have to a snow day: an unexpected work from home day.
A lot of the room was caked with drywall dust – the result of our taper sanding down the mud used on the drywall seams. Thankfully, it was all pretty heavy and didn’t billow out too far… but keeping things contained as a big priority.
This weekend, we got our bedroom officially taped, sanded, and painted with primer. The walls all have clean edges, everything is white, and the room actually looks like a room!
Looking back, I didn’t realize how much Kirk grappled with aging in the first two films. There seemed to be a lot more going on, in terms of family, but maybe that’s just been on my brain since yesterday.
I saw mention on Twitter of a discussion regarding Mel Brooks, and got introduced to @thelindsayellis. On finding her YouTube channel, we ended up watching one of her video essays – entitled The Complex Feels of Guardians of the Galaxy v.2.
I tried playing Linjat, by Juho Snellman, once or twice, but never quite got into what was going on. I wandered back a third time, and once things clicked for me… it got pretty fun, and I began trying a few more of the levels.
This was due, I’m sure, to the fact that we had some seriously cold days last week. But it made me wonder if the missing bikes were due to people fleeing the neighborhood, or due to Divvy not being able to come and re-stock the bicycles.
I’ve shared this song before, but in the last few days… I got it into my head again. I realized I had only posted it on the blog, but didn’t have it as part of my library on Spotify.
After work today, Liz and I spent a bit of time in the basement. We didn’t do a ton, but got some prep work finished so that we can better clean/organize things later on this week.
