Let’s just have a bonfire.

I ended up taking yesterday off waiting for some dude to come out to clean up all the branches in my yard.  He was supposed to get there at 10am, and instead after hemming and hawing,  he got there at 5:15pm.  We ended up not using him and he and I were both pissed about that.

I also went to the dentist yesterday morning and got fitted for a bite splint which my insurance is going to cover, oh… none of it!  At least I got my teeth cleaned, right?

I’ve been having a couple restless nights.  I toss and turn and wake up every 2 hours or so.  I’ve never done that before, usually my head hits the pillow and I’m out like a light.  I can’t figure out what it is.  When I go to bed I’m tired, to the point where I usually can’t keep my eyes open anymore.  I’m totally puzzled.

Today is my mom’s birthday, so we’re gonna take her out for dinner and get her some flowers or something.

I’ve just tried to start modifying my diet, eating 5 – 6 small meals a day.  It’s hard to regulate myself to that when I’m not used to it.  Eating breakfast really helps start that out though.  It’s not such a huge step now.


I’m fucking bushed.

These last two days have been work.  We’ve had these nasty scrubby cedar bushes on the back side of our house since we moved in and we hated them.  We trimmed them last year but it never filled in, so we decided to just cut them out.  We also spent some time trimming up a couple pine trees in our front yard so that we can actually see the street from our front window.

When we were finished, we had about a 6 foot tall pile that was about 10 feet across.  After going through 40 lawn bags (which are all on the front curb)  we got that down to about a 3ft x 5ft pile.  We have a dude coming out to our house tomorrow for an estimate on how much it would be to dispose of the rest of it.  I’ll be relieved when the whole thing is finished.  If Jason and my dad didn’t come over, that pile would still be huge.

Last night we both went to bed by 11pm and today I think I’ll be lucky to make it that late.

I tried to watch American Ninja for the site, but I couldn’t stay awake long enough to finish it.  No movie of the week this week I guess.  I’ll have to try and watch it tomorrow, because I think I’m going to be staying home from work.  I also pretty much ruined my hat, so I have to get a new one, but I’m not too sad about that.  The only problem is that it’s going to take a while to break it in.
