It’s Tuesday Morning

The weekend that was: Wendy was off work all weekend which was both a good and a bad thing.  We went to the Saskatoon Fireworks Festival, tried to have a fire in the back but the bugs drove us inside. 

Where I am at the moment: As Dopplr says, I am at home in Saskatoon.

On my to-do list this week:  A bunch of important decisions to make about life, where we live, and what I want to do with my life.

Procrastinating about: Decisions more than anything.

Book I’m in the midst of: Madame Secretary by Madeleine Albright.

Music that seemed to catch my attention this past week:  I just repurchased Fallen by Evanescence for the third time.  I may or may not have lost the two other disks that I own.

How I’m feeling about this week:  To be honest, I hate life right now.  I stopped sleeping months ago.  I have stress in all facets of my life and my health sucks.  All of those are interconnected issues but right now they are feeding off each other.  It would be nice if one of them got under control.

    Hey Jordon,

    I am an occassional reader of your blog – usually find my self heading toward your site when I’m restless… not sure why. I was struck by your “I hate life” comment.

    I think that there are a many who feel the same way. I appreciate you sharing that – for those of us going through hard times, there is something comforting that we are not alone.

    I appreciate the time and energy you put into this blog. I have enjoyed it.

    Brad.

  2. I feel for you on the “what to do with my life”, I’ve been struggling with it for a long time. I envy those who always know what they want to do. Hang in there.

    Thank you for the music link. I know it sounds frivolous. But this corner of the world, life is not great either and I often feel myself feeling the same way – more so of late. Music usually helps me channel some of that away so that I can deal with the public (have a very public type of job in health care) but nothing has been appealing to me on my ipod. Then you jogged my memory and I remembered these guys – yup exactly what I needed – just sort of smooths that restless out of sorts nuts feeling, so that I can deal with the people with hopefully some cheerfulness!

    It may be minor, but to me it will make a difference in dealing with the stress of tomorrow.
