Lowertown Brain Dump

A few random Sunday night notes:

  • The introvert in me is doing just fine, thank you very much.
  • Started Yale’s free Science of Well-Being online class and I’m really glad I did (h/t Charles).
  • Inspired by Ms. Rosner, I’m going to switch to unleaded for the immediate future.
  • The scale is not my friend these days, but I’m still trying to close those three damn circles every day.
  • Need to pick a day this week to run the virtual Get in Gear 10K and submit my (likely very slow) time.
  • News and social media can be soul-crushing these days, but I just can’t turn it completely off. As the great Sandra Boynton said, don’t let the turkeys get you down.
  • When this is all over, I want to buy drinks (in person) for all the cool people I follow on Twitter and Instagram.
  • This weekend’s focus was deciding which physical CDs and DVDs we could do without. Once it reopens, Electric Fetus will be gifted the whole pile.
  • The plan this week is to get the food page updated with those spots now offering great take-out. I don’t have an unlimited budget, but we should all try and support as many of our local favorites as we can.
  • Finished all the taxes (ours and my dad’s) before the original April 15th deadline, but will hold on to those checks until July.
  • Still can’t believe we are all done with Lombard – such a huge relief (thanks again Kary).
  • Photos + iPhone + Catalina = fubar. All I want is to sync albums from Photos to my phone, but all I get is “Photos cannot be synced to the iPhone because your Photos Library is not yet available. Please try again later.” Never thought I’d yearn for iTunes.
  • Starting week three with the CPAP and so far I’m not a big fan. Can’t sleep on my stomach or side, I don’t like breathing only through my nose and it hasn’t improved my sleep quality much. Definitey quieter for everyone else, though.
  • Looking forward to my first socially-distanced round of golf this week at the always excellent Willingers in Northfield.
  • Scheduled to see my long lost friend Eric at James Irving on May 4th. Fingers crossed…

Wishing you all peace, love and happiness ❤️
