Greetings. I’m back, and tired.
So what’s been up with me lately? Hrm. Well the blower on the car went out again, and the windows either fogging or needing scraping free of ice has been an issue. This is the fifth time in about a year, so I’ve not been too happy about this. Luckily a gift of a lighter socket powered defogger has been in the car, though it’s very weak. It does little, but enough for just freezing days. Anything more and I’m afraid it would have no affect.
Also, yet again, the engine light came on. YAY. So yeah, today I took it in to have all the issues checked out. I spent around 4 hours at the dealership waiting. Well, reading really. Anyway, after awhile they told me they didn’t have the parts and sent me on my way with a loaner. They said by tomorrow afternoon everything should be good to go. Fingers crossed.
Of course this all means I’ve been awake for a long time and have seen the sun again. Well, not today, it’s raining an awful lot. Good for me, since I didn’t get too sun sick. Though I did go out yesterday morning to try to prepare for today, though it was only briefly to shop for groceries. That was unpleasant. The sun was out in full force and I could barely keep my eyes opened. Ah, the joys of working the night shift for years. I was exhausted by the time I came home, though since the apartment is rather dark, I felt much better quickly. What a weird thing it is to feel ill just because the sun is out. I guess I’ll have to remain hidden, or maybe invest in some sun glasses, heh.
Only seven books read this week. I’m starting to get a little irritable while reading instead of enjoying things, so I did other things now and again. But to get back into the swing of things I hopped around to other authors I like to see if they released anything new, and yup. So instead of the never ending onslaught of wuxia I delved back into other things. That helped. I expect my final count for books read by the end of the year to be rather impressive. Let see if I can keep it up until the end!
I was able to do some writing after I got home today, so there’s that. It’s going well, though since I’m so tired I got distracted easily and it took me a couple of hours longer than usual to get my word count in. Boo tired Steve!
Anyway, that’s about it. I’m a boring guy, with a boring life, who reads way too much. Have a good week.
