Not feeling that great this morning, I decided to not only sleep in, but also do much of nothing today. The weather has cooled considerably. My boat? Can wait. I figured I have at least 3 days off, I can put it off until tomorrow.
So, I visited the cop neighbor for several hours - he texted me "porch, smoke?" That's sit on his porch and smoke a cigar. James came over too. For a cop, he's a pretty cool person, tho his main job is banker at this point.
Anyway, back to the house and took a long nap, Addler laying at my side of course. I won't sleep at night with him cause' he moves around too much and wakes me up, but I can take naps.
Getting up from that - and hanging out with James, I decided I just didn't want to make dinner. I'm highly unmotivated right now, everything and anything that takes energy I could care less about. James took over. Amazingly, after working in restaurants half his life growing up in a family that had it's own restaurant - he has never cooked spaghetti in his entire life. I was amazed, lol.
It's easy. Brown the ground beef and spicy sausage, drain it well, mix in the spaghetti sauce and let it simmer. I do more than that, but that's good enough to have a decent outcome. He already knew how to make the pasta so relatively painless. I couldn't have any pasta, however, but I found an idea of using sliced up cabbage instead, which sounded intriguing.
It was amazing good. Not as good as pasta, but a nice substitute. Remember, I'm still doing the Keto diet. Low carb. I don't know how long I will stay on the diet. I'm neither losing any more weight nor am I gaining it back. I really need to get motivated to get back the gym, but I've found that unbelievably difficult to do. Considering I spent my life working out, you'd think that would be easy, but it's not.
Going into this evening - company over. One person is doing a sleepover with Taylor - girl's night in, but then the other couple came over as well. They wanted me to join them for the fire they are going to build - pass. Why? Cause my manager called me half an hour ago - it's almost 9:00 pm - can you take Dusty's load out tomorrow? Uhh, sure (I guess, thinking not saying). Where was he going? Brownsville. Ugh. I really don't feel like driving tomorrow and the next day, but this trip coupled with the other one I just did would make a healthy paycheck, I didn't have to think about it, I just said sure!
I'm "sure" I'll pay for it tomorrow morning getting up at 4:00 am. My mind isn't anything even remotely close to being in work mode. I figured minimum 3 days off, probably 4. It's just that I have to get my mind into work mode and getting that kind of news this late? Kind of hard, especially when company is over and people I know and like to hang out with.
It's whatever tho. I need the money, I wasn't going to be getting another run before the pay period ended, have to do it. I have a bit more to spend on the boat to pay the mechanic - only $100 - and then there is stuff I need to buy for the boat if we are actually going to use it during the winter time. Which I will be taking it out on the lake at least a few times to ensure that it both runs and isn't going to sink. Sinking being the operative word, gag.
Well, time to go to bed lol.
Trip done and over with. Now, the funny part: the morning I left, another driver before me had loaded for Brownsville. He is still in Brown...

It will be a total of 10 days off. I was good at 7. Manager finally called and said are you ready to go back to work. Yes please. So tom...
