May 13: Ordering Windows, Doing Books & Hiking

May 13th, 2014 at 05:53 am

My plan for today included selecting the windows we will have installed thanks to our $7800 roofing windfall*, the monthly doing of the household "books", and taking a hike** in a new (to me) Park. Ahh... things did not happen that way.

Yet again, I kicked off my day with good coffee and blog post writing. I set aside the post I originally titled "Enough Should Be Enough" and started drafting*** "Stock Panic Nets Me 13% Overnight" because I am too much in touch right now with just how stupid "professional" investors can be and I have to write about it.

8:00am to 12:30pm
-- did the daily am 45 minute critter care
-- watered wife's dozens of new plantings
-- worked on a real estate "transaction issue"
-- searched for those windows (still needs more work)
-- did some cleaning and fixed a modem problem
-- but no time to do "the books"

12:30pm to 2:30pm
-- lunch while playing some Pacific War****
-- kept catching up my Pacific War fantasy journal
while watching Elizabeth R.

2:30pm to 7:00pm
-- headed out for my hike but got rained out on the way to the park. Aborted.
-- errand-bundled***** a couple of spots on the way back home
-- did some brainstorming on my way-behind-schedule $5000 spending spree******
-- caught up my Pacific War fantasy journal (now at
December 18, 1941).

7pm to ...
-- dinner and a movie (Kingdom of Heaven)
-- more Pacific War gaming
