I tend to be “on” all the time. Always “on” a project on “on” the job with something I am working on “on” my mind. Due to my workaholic nature, though, it is very hard to turn things off when I want to. The past two days were a stint at being rebellious… I did little more than play video games and watch TV.
The Good? I had fun with my wife. She and I played Resident Evil 5 co-op mode. This was a blast since (for Christmas) we go a second Xbox 360. Now we can play in the living room (56 inch 1080p DLP) and the bedroom (42 inch 1080p LCD) against each other while playing video games. In games where Shannon tends to get upset (i.e. anything that is not a puzzle game) she tends to hit the person playing next to her and yell a lot. My bruise-free arm rejoiced in the separate room gaming.
We also played The Beatles: Rock Band – which was fun for me and REALLY fun for her. She’s a true Beatles fan through an though. I like the band and the music, but I was never really into The Beatles. By the end of the night, though, my voice was shot from singing songs I didn’t know they had sung.
The Bad? I came home Thursday night with one of my infamous lists that I tend to write of things to get done over the weekend. I have, as of this morning, completed 2 of the 17 things I wrote out. That means that I have today/tonight to get the rest done.
I got up at 8:00 AM this morning, took a shower, got dressed, let the dog out, and spent a couple of hours working on one of my consulting gigs. Shannon (who could sleep through an earthquake) is still napping off a night of sixties music and drumming mayhem.
And so it goes.
