Weekend hasn’t gone quite like I expected. 😐 Sleep has been screwed up throughout, although I am hoping that I can somehow get a decent few hours tonight since I’ve got a doctor appointment tomorrow and don’t want to come across like a zombie. It’s the doctor that only deals with my neck and shoulder, so he’s not the one I would be discussing sleep or energy issues with anyway. (And of course with COVID being around, any time I’m feeling “off” I get a little more nervous about it than I probably need to be.) 😏🤷🏻♂️ But I digress…
No nightmares the past couple of days, which is awesome, but still… weird, weird dreams. Me and Jim (again) were lost in the woods somewhere near some sort of state park / camping lodge that we were looking for. 😳 Dad had rented a suite there that we were all staying in, and we knew we weren’t supposed to be out after dark since he was worried that we’d get lost… 😏 which we did. 🤦🏻♂️ After we found a path and climbed through trees blocking our way, we did make it back to the room. Dad didn’t even realize that we were late because he had been playing on exercise equipment in our suite, and he demonstrated how the couch had enough spring to it that he could do front and back flips off of it. 😃🤸🏻♂️ And, in the dream, seeing him doing that didn’t seem the least bit out of the ordinary. 😅😊 So strange…
But no, I didn’t manage to go in town to do any 360 video recording. No biggie, though. 🙂 It wasn’t that I totally lacked the energy… but when the time came, I guess I just didn’t really want to. 🤷🏻♂️ It felt like it was something that could take too much of my oomph for the day, and I was just wanting to lose as little of that as possible so I could continue to do some things around the house instead. But, being in that low energy mood, I basically didn’t talk to anyone over the weekend. 😟 At least not like I normally would. Luckily most folks know that I have short periods where I’m just extremely low on juice, so nobody seemed bothered that I haven’t reached out for a while or that it took me way longer than usual to reply to text messages.
I have a feeling that once I’m past my doctor appointment tomorrow it’ll help me be a little more at ease. It’s just the monthly reminder of the cloud of bullshit that’s still going on with all the workers comp stuff, and I’m just really, really tired of dealing with it. 😣 So when it’s sitting in the back of my mind as something that I need to be prepared for since it’s coming up… it’s just getting old, month after month.
Had a couple nice interactions on Twitter though. I’ve talked with different writers and producers of Cobra Kai, and this weekend I talked with the fella that did the 80’s pop-rock / synthwave type score… and also with Sean Kanan, who played Mike Barnes in the third Karate Kid movie. 🤘🏻😀 It was neat… I posted a reply to one of his tweets, asking if the intensity of his character in KK3 had any part in him getting the role of AJ Quartermaine on General Hospital a few years later. 🤔
Mom used to watch that soap opera religiously, and I ended up following it for a long time as well due to getting exposed to it from Mom watching after school, and then just watching it on my own once I got my own place. 😊 So it’s just neat that all these years later, the guy who played a character that I’d watch on the daily – he actually retweeted my reply so it would show up on his timeline. 😎 I like that I managed to ask something that was actually able to pick a new part of his brain after all these years.
Okay, gonna hop off here and check my e-mail real quick, and then I might be working on a day and time when I can meet up with Toni and Wendi so I can see little Matt in person for the first time. 😊 I’ll just wear a mask and make sure I keep my distance… something that I tend to do when babies are involved anyway… 😏 but yeah, it’s a long overdue visit. This year’s just been crazy, which I don’t have to explain to anyone, so hopefully Wendi doesn’t think that my lack of an appearance to date was because I don’t care. 🤞🏻
