||CleanDay 714: Updating||Technology! Our greatest friend. OUR GREATEST FOE. Slept late after going to two parties yesterday, which as a sociable introvert means I had a good time, but am now completely mentally exhausted. I’m great with people,||12/16/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 713: Insommmniaaaaa||Ehhh, I was trying to find a good clip from the trailer for “Insomnia” but it turns out they don’t really talk that much about insomnia, mainly serial killing. Which is probably a good move, marketing-wise. Up since 2,||12/15/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 712: Back back on track (track)||GOOD sleep last night — so up on time, exercise, doing this, took care of some holiday stuff. A good morning so far! And progress yesterday at detaching from the major volunteer gig. It’s hard handing things off,||12/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 711: Sleep Is Key!!!||We know this already! But now that I’m typing this (after another REALLY BAD SLEEP HAS DESTROYED ME) night, I realize that it’s not true. STRESS IS KEY!!! G_D volunteer stress kept me up all night, even though I’m doing things, productive things,||12/13/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 710: Cyclical||Got up at 4:00 (wife has an early shift), drank water, exercised, fed the cats, made coffee. Business as usual, or it should be! Those of you who have been along for the ride for a while probably know that I’m happy to be back on track.||12/12/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 709: The Big Why||This has been something I’ve been mulling over since it came up a few days ago — why bother? Not in like a crazy depressed way, but is there some core piece of motivation that I should be looping into here?||12/11/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 708: Back to Bed!||It’s a vacation day from work — practically mandated, as you have to use ’em all by the end of the calendar year. Policy! So it’s a get-things-done today, but first? I’m going back to bed. I love sleep! What can I tell you?||12/10/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 707: Get-Things-Done-Day||Sunday’s our traditional prepare for the week day: lots of food prep, some house cleaning, grocery shopping and all that good stuff. And some days, frankly, you just don’t feel like doing all that good stuff. But you gotta. It’s gotta get done.||12/9/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 706: Big Money Mojo||My wife has come up with a pretty great plan to get us financially on track for 2019, which is, well, pretty great. As mentioned. We’re going to be properly budgeting again — which I welcome — and I think 2018 has been a bit of a “got job,||12/8/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDay 705: Big Why, Spiritual Mojo||As the Beastie Boys said, “Get It Together.” Good advice for me today — my wife’s sick, so it was a restless night, and another day — bah! — of no exercise, and again scrambling to get out the door. It’s frustrating!||12/7/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
