    I made it all week without spending very much money.

    I learned some new techniques to apply to my business starting on Monday morning.

    I've lived here in the Phoenix area now 14 months. I only drive on the highways at most a couple times a week, always too anxious about getting lost to put anything on the radio for fear of possibly missing a cue from the navigator. Today I felt confident enough to play tunes over my 50-mile round trip (there was even singing). Milestone.

    Talk about traffic, it's "season" here in S. FL, Ft Lauderdale...the traffic on Federal Highway (US 1 to you) is like a wall....I needed some small items from Trader Joes, it's "almost" walking distance from the house....but....anyway I beat the traffic with a few shortcuts....(lots of turns and side streets)...now I'm in for the weekend!

    Congrats! I wish I could say the same for mine; which has been in limbo due to the paucity of reliable data.

    Did your Committee schedule your defense?

    It's been years since my wife slept in our bed (she prefers the living room couch) but it just hit me that it IS pretty damn comfortable sleeping in a large bed without having to share covers.

    You have to take the perks where you find them, people! :)

    The back porch bug zapper that arrived this afternoon just made its first kill.

    I hope it was a mosquito.

    Got up today with little to no pain after doing some serious gardening (transplanting bushes and such from an aunt's house to ours) yesterday afternoon.

    One of said friends, a former coworker I haven't seen in probably four years, rubbed my freshly buzzed head, and it made me very happy.

    Pushed through possible knee pain to do my treadmill today. Took it easy and successfully did the full time. Back's a bit wonky, but, I'm a fat dude so that's not too unexpected, especially considering the amount of yard work we did. Lots of bending and twisting. Week 4 started.

    Today started out with some shit (literally, stepped in dog shit when I was arriving to work) and got progressively worse. But my new lens came today, which was cause for joy and a smile.

    And I picked up my violin to practice for the first time in seven months. Not only had my violin not exploded during my hiatus from it, the playing itself didn’t hurt as might as I thought it would.
