I have an ambitious project that has been sitting in my back yard for nearly one year. It is important to age projects sufficiently before tackling them. They're like wine.
So now that the bricks are a lovely mature vintage with a fine bouquet of earthworms and pill bugs... it's time to make a sidewalk.
I am setting this goal: sidewalk done before snow flies. What I would really like to set is: sidewalk done before I go to bed. But I am not sure that is a reasonable goal. If it gets done this weekend (which it very well may) I will be quite happy. But I don't want to rush through it and injure myself or others.
Feeling less hollow and odd today. Motivated to tackle small bits of long-term projects and work toward completing them. So I will take advantage of that and behave accordingly.
Heard back from Psych NP that she thinks it is a brilliant plan to increase lamotrigine from 150 to 200mg and then follow up with her by phone next week. It is of course much to soon to attribute any uptick in mood state to medication change. Medication is not magic. :(
So far this morning I have piled up the bricks beside the place that will become the sidewalk. Now I am going to research proper method of laying them. (For the past year they were just kind of plopped down on top of the mud in our back yard and you had to balance precariously on them.)
I'm trying to learn to play Mahjong. I know how to play... but I have no idea how to score it. The problem is, the scoring of the game seems to be a lot like "cups"
