week in review

Week in review – 01.10.2021

I don’t think that anyone could have predicted this week. At this point I have no words, other than that I’m glad that people are being arrested for their part in this week’s horror.

On a personal note, it was a pretty meh week around here. I’m trying hard to get out of the “diet” mindset and learn how to actually eat. It’s going fair to middling. It’s a lot harder than I originally anticipated. As it turns out, I spend a lot of the day snacking, and get a bit of anxiety when I’m not “full.” Even when I’m not really all that hungry, I’m snacking. Rather than eat a full meal at one time, I spread that meal out over 4 or 5 hours, especially at work or when I’m working on the computer. It’s a habit that I have to break. And it’s going to be hard. I need to invest in some mints or some Werther’s candies and suck on one of those rather than eating.

I started watching Full Metal Alchemist from start to finish. Mike watched it years ago, and I saw a good chunk when he was watching it, but I never saw the whole thing. So I decided to rectify that. I feel, though, like this is going to open up a can of anime worms that I’m going to fall down. And yes, I do plan on watching Brotherhood when I’m done with this version. I’m just about halfway through It’s easy when the episodes are short and I can put it on while I’m doing other things. But I find myself paying more attention to it than what I’m working on a lot of the time. Oh well, not like I’m curing cancer over here. I’m blogging, balancing the checkbook, researching different things, reading a book, whatever.

Work was pretty good this week. I ended up working 7 hours on my day off, so I’m hoping to get most of a day off this week, possibly as early as tomorrow. Moves are going to be made in the region this week. I’m fairly nervous about it – I really don’t want to be transferred. Not only do I like where I am, but I’m also hoping in the next few months to move into a corporate position. I made my regional aware of this, so I’m hoping that he just decides to keep me in place until that happens. I’m crossing my fingers, but I don’t have high hopes.

The gyms are open again, and I made it there three times this week – two runs and one lifting. There was definitely a bit of backsliding since I really didn’t do either for three weeks, but progress will come. I just have to be persistent and consistent. Distance and time, as well as heavier weights, will come, but I know that I have to keep working on it.

Mental health this weeks was fine. Maybe a bit more apathetic this week. Generally tired. My sleep is kind of screwy – two nights this week I passed out on the couch when I got home from work, and then couldn’t sleep when it was time to go to bed. Which meant I got crap sleep, and finally gave up both nights and went and slept on the couch. Needless to say my neck hurts and all I want is a good night’s sleep in my own bed. I’m hoping to get exactly that tonight. Assuming I’m not transferred, I’ve got six days off coming up at the end of the month and I literally cannot wait. I guess I’ll find out in the next two or three days what’s going to happen.

Well, that’s it for this week. I hope this week is better than last. I think we could all use a good week after this last one.

Stay safe, friends!

  1. I wish you luck at work. Are you a store manager, or assistant manager, or lower on the food chain? [I can’t remember if you already blogged this.] I was never in a position to worry about relocation – I was just told “change that end-cap tonight from toilet paper to prune juice” or whatever!

  2. Thanks! I’m an assistant manager. I’m lucky, our corporate HQ is in town so I have a lot of options. Is a waiting game right now, though, to see if I’m moving stores.
