    I slept in the bed alone last night. I thought it was going to be glorious. I’d put my iPad on the bed with a show playing on it like I used to, I’d sleep on the lefthand side like I use to, and the girls would join me like they used to. It started…

    I’ve been aware that I’ve been having dreams lately, not like Martin Luther King, but while I’m sleeping, and I don’t like it. I can’t remember most of them, which is frustrating in itself, but I woke up pissed off about something that happened in my dream, and I can’t remember what it was.

    I’m not ready for the new school year to begin. I went to school today for a few hours but didn’t get enough done. Going in tomorrow is going to be a pain. After work, I went to the workshop, where I managed to finish an order that I’ve been working on.

    “I have to give this a go,” I keep telling myself. My parents reiterate the same to me when I speak with them. “If I don’t try this, I’ll always wonder what could’ve come of it.” So, I’m doing it. Most of the time, it’s pretty good. Sometimes, I get nervous. I’m an anxious person,…

    A lot of things seem to be moving right now. I’m moving stuff over to the new workshop and Hannah’s moving stuff into here. We’ve already started talking about when we plan to go to work next week. There’s also the cats, who are getting to know each other and moving around the apartment. We’re…

    My parents have a massage chair that I love using. When they first got it, they wanted to buy a second. I don’t hear them talking about it much anymore. When I visit, I can’t wait to use it.

    Waiting is busy at the airport. Standing in lines, repacking at security, sitting at the gate. Remaining aware keeps you busy.

    I rotated my tires today. Six tire changes took place. I kept wishing I had just paid the guy to do it when I went in for an oil change.

    I want to make a bowl tomorrow but I don’t think I’ll be able to. I mean, I could, of course, but then other things, perhaps more important things, wouldn’t get done. Not more important, just more urgent. Not more urgent in their gravity but in their scheduled order. Essentially, I’d miss some deadlines if…

    Playing used to mean going outside to ride my bike, play street hockey, shoot hoops in the driveway, or build something with Lego. It made senses to call those activities “playing” because they were fun and carefree. Going to the playground wouldn’t be all that much fun if it were work.

    At some point in the last few years, I became a homebody. I’m reluctant to go out. I used to love going out. I couldn’t stay home.

    My girlfriend took up painting recently, and it’s only in the last couple of weeks that she’s started to share her work with me. I want to take some credit for her new artistic pursuit because I suggested we paint on our second date. She still has that painting on her wall.
