My stressed, foul mood came to a head Monday night. At about 11:30pm Monday, I crawled into bed, still clothed, and slept until about 7:30am.
Since I hadn’t gotten much writing done the night before, I logged a couple of hours before Eric got up. Maybe it was just moving past that chapter that’s put me in a better place. Worked some yesterday afternoon as well, though I’ve thought of a better way of starting the scene and am rewriting it today. Yesterday evening was an enjoyable happy hour/dinner at San Tan Brewery in honor of Reif’s birthday. It was nice getting out.
Today, disc. This past weekend was New Year Fest. Instead of playing, I helped out at Frisbee Central with Stan again, but I somehow managed to not even throw a disc all weekend. I was really looking forward to it today. Amazingly, I’ve felt really good joint-wise during the last couple of days. I ran Monday and Tuesday and, while my parts were fine, I felt like I was pulling a 10lb weight behind me. I didn’t feel that way today. Not to say that my play was particularly stellar. I had a nice put to JT (and for once didn’t make him lay out for it), but completely flubbed a perfectly put long from Dave.
I need to get more work done before Eric gets home. Should also address some VOTS-related emails that I’ve let go. As part of an effort to not completely burn myself out by the first game of league (in a week and a half!), I’ve been limiting the visits to my gmail account. It’s working, mostly.
