To everyone else, do not search this. It's her way to find a loophole about not posting hairless cat images.

 

Trippy this playing the system you're doing is beyond the pale.

It’s nice to know people with the same cultural touchstones as me.

 

Rmember when there were only like six cable channels, and The Beastmaster was always playing on five of them? (The other one was porn, and scrambled.)

yesterday was a good day. No weasels were harmed, or even spoken to sternly. 

 

Hyper Weasel: I did not meditate in the morning, but I did a candle meditation before bed. 

 

Sleep Weasel: Good sleep.

 

Multi-tasking Weasel -  I did really good with my focus blocks and the phone was not on the desk which helps a ton. It also helps that we are in sort of a sweet spot between events - our August event got cancelled, so now we don't have one til mid-september. I would probably be a lot more stressed if it were. I put a hummingbird feeder outside my office window and now I can see them while I work, which I quite like.

 

Boundaries Weasel: I did something that was boundary progress here, and I was excited about it, but I'm damned if I can remember what it was now. 

 

ETA: Wait now I remember, I put my phone away upstairs at like 6 o'clock and didn't touch it again until bedtime when I had to plug it in.

 

Someone called me with a one-day film gig for Friday that involves driving up to Suwannee, picking up a hard drive, doing some stuff with it and then shipping it out. They were actually looking for a PA, but I jumped on it with both feet; no way am I turning down extra money. So I'll have to drive to my mom's on Saturday instead of Friday night, which blows, but I'd rather get the extra work. 

 

I had a really good workout at the end of the day where I went to a local park that has stadium steps and brought a ten-pound ruck and alternated going up/down the steps, box squats on a bench, and jogging 50 meters until I felt my soul start to leave my body like I had done enough. 

 

Today, Thursday, was hot garbage. 

 

Hyper Weasel: No meditation or forest bathing. I did buy a flower for my desk.

 

Sleep Weasel:  I had anxiety dreams all night last night (or what felt like it) culminating in one where I had to take my cat with me to college but I didn't have a carrier and I had to just carry her like a football everywhere, looking for a place to live.  I slept a little later because of it, and because my boyfriend was going in to work later.

 

Multi-tasking Weasel - This was the real disaster today. I had some errands to do this morning, and even though I had blocked off the time I felt really anxious about not being "at work". I think part of the problem was that I had to return a piece of equipment in downtown Atlanta, where I haven't been since the before times, and seeing the downtown area, which is usually bustling and hustling, almost deserted and boarded up really spooked me. There is a park downtown that usually hosts a fairly robust population of homeless people (especially since the largest homeless shelter in Atlanta closed two years ago so that the property owner could build yuppie condos on the lot; I hope they are haunted, like a something built on an old Indian graveyard), but the cops have apparently blocked off the park because there were BLM protests there and so the homeless have dispersed throughout the downtown. So every block or so, instead of seeing students and business folks and kids on those godforsaken Bird Scooters, you just passed closed up places with some desperate soul and everything they possessed crumpled in a doorway. It was like something out of the Walking Dead. My equilibrium took a hit.

 

By the time I came home and ate lunch I had ratcheted my anxiety up to the point where my heart was racing, so I got out my blood pressure gauge and made myself do focused breathing until I got my BP down to normal. Then I triaged my to-do list and figured out what absolutely had to happen today and did those things, and now I am on here rambling and then I will work out. It will all be fine. I can work some over the weekend if I have to. 

 

Boundaries Weasel: This is fine. I don't have anything to mention here. 

 

today's workout will be DT, which I can do in the backyard, because I had the nose swab Monday (negative, ghostrider) and I'm trying to limit my exposure to anything before I drive down to my mom's on Saturday. It's just rounds with the barbell.

 

I won't get the Saturday off like I mentioned in my beginning-of-challenge, and it makes me feel like a dickhead that I resent it slightly. I'm trying to extend myself some compassion about it like @Tanktimus the Encourager says I should. (Next I'll be expressing my feelings honestly to people and then EVERYTHING will fall apart)

That drive through downtown sounded rough.

I'm glad you posted about it to help share some awareness of what's really going on out there. But yeah, you are dealing with enough stressful stuff.

I have avoided our downtown, but the pictures of it  look eerily similar to what you describe.

 

Tank is wise and all, but this thing about expressing your feeling honestly and all, I'm not sure that seems taking it all too far.😉

I was really worried with all the one- and two- level days this week that my challenge was going to be super boring and calm. Fortunately for drama’s sake today was ghastly. 

 

The whole version is too long and I am too tired, but the short version is that I spent four hours trying to make a computer peripheral work for that film job had today, knowing that I had to make FedEx and with the company calling me every twenty minutes asking how it was going. Nobody I called knew how to help until I got the bright idea to call a camera house where i know the guys and bring the stuff there, frantic and soaked in flop sweat. They fixed it in twenty minutes. Always go to the professionals, kids. 

 

So I finally got all of it done and shipped out fedex and I’m currently waiting on pizza which i intend to eat in my underwear, while necking several beers. 

 

No workout today.

Your end of the stressful day sounds like my end of a normal day so actually, you still massively have it all together so well done!

Haha! I ate too much pizza (and wings) and made myself a bit sick. But it was okay.

Peak coronavirus os a really shitty time to have menopause. I just spent 10 minutes trying to cool off in the beer cooler at Publix wondering if I had hot flashes or I needed to go to the Emergency room.

Week one wrap up:

 

I think this week went pretty well, with the exception of Friday. 

 

Hyper Weasel: I got in several meditation sessions, but no forest bathing, which gave me a sad. But it was a good effort. 

 

Sleep Weasel:  I did really well at this. I set an alarm on my phone to make sure I got off the electronics on time, and I went to bed about on time most nights. 

 

Multi-tasking Weasel - This was REALLY  good. My focus blocks idea really took hold, and I got so much done. 

 

Boundaries Weasel: This was not a real issue, as I didn't get any late calls or emails. I did get a call from my boss Sunday evening to natter about nothing, but it was short, and it wasn't a problem. If I'd been at dinner or something I might have let it go to voice mail. 

 

Since I had such a good week, I gave myself a reward; I bought a new jump rope for home workouts. Last week's reward turned out to be some cool seeds for my garden, which should come this week. 

 

I've been at my mom's this weekend and will be until tomorrow, so my week 2 will not have a great start, but I will do my best. Once I get home Tuesday night it should get better.

Well done on  the week! I like the idea of a reward for each week. 

 

If i were *completely* honest I would have to admit I would have bought at least the seeds anyway.
