I’m struggling with choices in my life that involve assessing what I want vs what I need. I have tended to live a more practical life, but there are definitely some indulgences I have enjoyed along the way. I am at a point where there are things I want that would require sacrifices but seem more appealing than choosing the cheaper, easier, more responsible route. When should want trump need, if ever?

Dull Drum

It’s raining here, fulfilling the old cliche “April showers bring May flowers.”

I’ve been pretty sick for the bulk of two weeks. It was either the Flu or a very bad cold. I seem to have finally crawled out of it.

I’ve been stuck in the doldrums lately. We had tickets to a show Saturday night, but by the time we finished a lackluster dinner out, we had decide to blow off the show and go back home to watch TV and hang with the dogs instead of going to the show. This isn’t uncommon. I’ve been choosing to stay home more and more lately. I just don’t feel inspired to make an effort. My work week drains the life out of me and by the time I get home or get to the weekend, I just want to stay in and shut out the world. That’s fine once in a while, but probably not a healthy way to be, day in and day out.

Hopefully, this will pass.

FYI: the first season of Daredevil is out on Netflix and it’s pretty awesome.

Do the clothes make the Man?

For the first time, I wore my awesome Super-Hero Spo shirt to work. Not the first time I’ve worn it, for the record, just the first time I’ve worn it to work. I was greeted with many “oohs” and “aahs”, and even a couple questioning glances, but that’s to be expected among the community of people I work with. None the less, I wear it with pride and Glee! Thanks again, Spo!
