I totally slept in again today.

Will I get back on track tomorrow?

Just Do The Things

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Seventy Seven]

Part of why the morning productivity has eroded somewhat is that I get lost in the ‘Tubes. Not just the internet – twitter, facebook, insta – but checking email / slack for work and browsing YouTube / Twitch / Periscope.

It’s day three of a seven or eight or million day streak of 29-32 degree highs.

We have one airco unit.

It’s in the kids room.

We have a ton of fans going.

I’m in power saver mode.

But first the news:

There are a million things that I wanted to tackle this week while on vacation but as of Friday I just… stopped… doing things.
