What I am thinking about today: 2/8/2022
What I am thinking about today:
-I was once told that “whatever foods you are craving is what your body needs to be healthy.” The person who told me that has obviously never craved Honeycomb cereal, Goldfish crackers by the handful, bourbon, or caramel syrup.
-I have three days off from the office job starting tomorrow. I will be using it to try to catch up on things in the house, reset my busy schedule, and run every errand I haven’t had time to run for the last three months. Saturday will be for rest, and Sunday is a group home shift where things will be quiet and calm. My Sundays with the clients are nice in that I don’t have to rush things. They are more laid back and I don’t have to worry about getting them fed, their meds and into bed before they get too tired to do anything.
-I will also see about getting out and doing something a few times while I am off. Working from home and then over to the group hoem means I am really only spending time either alone or with developmentally disabled folks. I love the people I work with, but it’s hard to have a conversation of some heft with them. And, even if I don’t talk to anyone, getting to a coffee house for some reading and people watching, or going to a place to shoot pool would be a welcome change.
-The Oscars were announced today. I haven’t seen most of them, but then I haven’t seen most movies due to the insane schedule I seem to be on. I did laugh at Bill Mahar last year when he had a long whine that the Oscar movies were sad. Dude, have you EVER PAID ATTENTION TO WHAT WINS? It’s well known that comedies never win, and Oscar voters prefer tragedies because they are more “serious” and therefor more important to the people who vote for them.
-At this point in my life, I only pay attention to award nominations to see them as suggestions for things to try. There is so much art/media being produced you can’t possibly keep up on it if you have any sort of life. I am behind on everything (Just finished Squid Game last weekend) that I have a list I am working through without trying to keep up.
Much love to friends old and new. Be kind, be courageous, and be cool.
