Catch 22, a Skunk, and My Maintenance Period

It’s not always easy to be me… and I seem to have more Grit than Grace but I got through Monday! It was Monday on Steroids for sure. Very glad to have come in Sunday. I think we all looked like one of those really fast old movies where everyone is running around really fast. We all had so much to do and I’m sure no one needed to be bothered, but yet there we were all needing things from one another, and bothering one another for what we needed. It was quite the day. I made it through knowing we’d be having dinner with Kevin and Susan later (BIL and SIL).

How appropriate to eat dinner at place called Catch 22 as that seemed to be a theme of the day, LOL. One I won’t go into here but it did strike a funny chord within me.

Catch 22, Mount Juliet, TN

That is not our car, by the way, but I took a pic of the restaurant for you. I ate lighter yesterday for breakfast and lunch so I could eat better for dinner. Catch 22 has a few salads for those low cal options but I wanted more than just a salad. I had been craving a burger, and they have one of the best burgers around!

The BA Burger with Bacon, Swiss, and Avocado, & Arugula with a side of Potato Salad

I got a flight, of course. You know I love to do the flights of little beers to see what different ones on tap taste like. I was thrilled that Czann’s had one on tap there. I’m so glad he’s in Mount Juliet now.

Calendar of Last Week’s Plans During Snow Week, LOL!

I opened my calendar yesterday to be able to make some plans in it and write things down as I thought of it. I didn’t have a lot of success (no time for planning, only doing). My mind was all over the place on the way to work and I could not wait to sit down and capture it all with pencil and paper, but when I unlocked and set up the work day, and transitioned to all I had to do there, everything left my mind before I could write it all down. Oh well. It will all come back to me in time. But, as I opened my calendar, I had to laugh at last week and how busy it was. Do you want to see for yourself? Here ya go!

Well yeah, I did more than that obviously, but I didn’t need to write anything down! There were no appointments, no grocery lists, and any to do lists were on my Focus Matrix app. Most of the to do lists were things at home anyway. Work has it’s own list on my PC. I don’t really use this calendar here for work – it’s my personal one. But I think we should thank the Lord for such a quiet week. No fuss, no pomp, no circumstances – well not many anyway.

Skunk Visit

On the way to the restaurant we saw a skunk. It was weird. I didn’t really see much of a stripe. I had the window rolled down but these things can spray 10 to 15 feet, so I didn’t want to make a splash or get his attention! In the video below you can hear us chatting about how close to get and how far he sprays. I rolled up the window!

When Will there Be another Video on the YouTube Channel?

Ok well I am going to wrap this up and get ready for work! It’s my 3rd day in the week to work. It’s payroll closing day. That’s all I know for today. But I’m very excited that soon it will be March. We will have more chances for spring weather. It’s supposed to be in the 60’s today I think. I’m also looking forward to having some more personal time to get things done. But…will not be until Sunday, or after work maybe. I kinda need to go to the store and get a few snack items. And of course, you know I have a whole list of things I want to do always. I really want to get this long list of things done so I can get back in the rhythm of making videos. So much has postponed it with Christmas, working and doing year end stuff, going to Texas, catching up from all that, upgrading Big Sur, getting the back up drive set up, setting up my video files on the external disc, and just trying to get critical things done around the house, etc.

It’s hard to have a consistent YouTube Channel when you work FT. But I’m slowly working through the maze of things blocking me from making progress. I know you are probably tired of me talking about it, but I have had to do some “must dos” before I can go any further. It’s kinda like sailing in a way. You are anxious to get back at it but you got to stop for repairs and then provisions and get ready for the long haul. For now the channel is a hobby, it’s not monetized, and I don’t want the pressure of having a set schedule yet. I can probably manage one every month, but that would have backfired coming out of the end of the year with all we’ve done and had to do in 2021, so it’s been longer. The longer I wait the harder it is to get back going. But I have made myself wait. I am determined to get some of these things done that I needed to stop and do before getting back to my creativity zones. Let’s just call it a “maintenance period”. That’s pretty much what it is!

Anyway ya’ll take care!

  1. Glad you managed your night out and seemed to enjoy it. Your burger looked good, wish I could eat a whole burger ..I can never get to the end ! I’m glad that you managed to almost catch up with things at work, let’s hope you don’t have to work this coming weekend …..As you didn’t mention the condition of the roads yesterday I presume they were better. Fancy seeing that skunk, I’m glad that we don’t have skunks over here. Thinking about it really we are very fortunate
    that we don’t have any or many animals that are poisonous or vicious…
    I’m quite tired today for some unknown reason so I’m not going to write much more just take care of yourself today and drive home safely.. God Bless
