Accepting Responsibility is Key

Still a little serious tonight, but far less so than when I came home from work yesterday. I'm in about the same place right now as I get after having any serious disagreements with Manoah, but with George instead.

Another thought I had on the way to work earlier tonight was how I'm stuck in a rut once again. I've done pretty much the same thing over and over for the past week, but now that I've picked back up on taking longer routes home from work, I'm finding more and more things to do in my free time, the very first of which involves some walking about on Tuesday. To get home tonight, I went out McNaughton to Baldoon, then down to the Thames Lea Plaza, and along the sidewalk beside it from there. When I got to Shoppers, Canadian Tire, and Staples, I noticed a sign out in front of the first one that said they were moving, and as a result, "select items" were 70% off, so I'll have to check that out soon. Even if I don't actually get anything, I can still get DVDs from Staples instead of Walmart, and perhaps snacks from the bakery down the street, as last time I was there was while I was in college, and I'd like a change of pace from, but still a selection somewhat similar to Tim Hortons'. And of course I might head off to Charlie's Variety as well, but all of that, at the moment, hinges on whether or not I'm needed at Heart and Stroke this week. Michele may not even be back from vacation for all I know, but I sent her an email anyways, so maybe I'll see a response when I wake up tomorrow afternoon. After that, I'm not sure, but I have something else much more sedentary in mind for Thursday or Friday.

I'm still downloading seasons 6 and 7 of it, but I'm only up to the middle of season 3, and DS9 is finally getting to the point of not being entirely boring. Either that or I haven't been able to fully appreciate it the past couple days for having other things on my mind, but I so very much want to see a day come by where I can lay here for the entire afternoon watching it, then go out for snacks at some point during the late evening, come back home, and continue for the rest of the night. Of course, of course, I could only want that just right now, and by the time Thursday and Friday get here I'll want to do completely different things, but as it's not terribly important, I'd rather not worry about what may happen. The only downside is I keep spoiling all the interesting bits by reading what I presume to be spoiler-free pages on the wiki, and end up seeing things such as main characters dying, and, before I even watched the first episode, glancing at the synopsis for "What You Leave Behind". It's a bit sad having a general idea of the conclusion already, but as I've said about other things in the past (Phoenix Wright in particular), getting to the conclusion is often as exciting as the end. Just a little respite to make things seem better <3

Aside from all that, the one remaining thought running through my head is tomorrow night. Not so much work, because I'm only concerned about getting out before the order comes for that, but afterwards. These past two nights I've done well for thinking of how I want to get home and going through with it despite the walk being somewhat far, so assuming the same happens tomorrow, I'll get all the way out to Michener and Indian Creek. Entirely because I want to get a donut from the Tim Hortons on Park Ave, and a drink from the one behind 7-11. I know, I know, I said I'd save that for the night I close with Sheila, but I can't guarantee she'll let me go without a fuss about walking home on my own, and I'd rather not wait that long when I can just go to 7-11 the same night for candies as was originally the second half of my plans. Money might be a concern with all of this, but aside from needing ~$20 for Tuesday, I have change for the rest, and even after that should be well enough off this coming week. Let's assume first of all that I make $200 from work. That leaves me with $160 in the bank and a ten dollar bill for myself, with the rest going to Mom for gas, but on top of that Adam will be giving me $45, and Manoah owes me $80.

I think I should be done for tonight though, as abrupt as it is. I'm obviously in a better mood than yesterday because I could probably keep going for another half hour at least, but it's close to 7, and I need to be prepared just in case Michele says yes. I don't believe there's anything left to say about what I have already though, so that's good enough. Besides, I still need to think of a title~
