A little incoherence, and a short update

This morning, I slept till 8 am.

Actually I woke several times since about 3 am. I had all sorts of jumbled thoughts about wicked, strange dreams I longed to get back to so I just rolled over and stayed in bed until 8. Sort of fell asleep again into a semi-dozed state.

Only reason I’m up is because I had to pee and craved coffee. 😛☕

I never do this. I’m not a sleeper-in person. But then, I did imbibe a little last night… 👀

About my sorry-not-sorry comments lately

I’ve been saying that a lot lately, haven’t I. Like my earlier post from a few hours ago which was all ranty and full of expletives.

Sorry. (Not really.) 😐

Apologizing is a very Canadian 🇨🇦 activity so sorry for saying sorry when I’m not really sorry. 😄

Homophone mistake

The other day, I re-read a published post of mine and I noticed a horrible mistake.

Horrible!

I had an immediate anxiety attack. I swear, this was the sort of mistake I never, ever make.

Flowing words inhibited by distractions

It was about a year and a half ago when I wrote extensively about midlife invisibility, seeking self-worth and all sorts of topics on writing including mantras like if not now, when.

I set goals. I set the path toward my goals in motion. I trekked along, tripped and stumbled occasionally, but more or less, things seemed to be propelling forward, albeit at a relatively slow pace.

But still, I could see the path behind me getting a little bit longer every time I looked.

Then, I fell off the proverbial horse. Right into a mud puddle, flanked by dirty snowbanks.

This is where I’m sitting right now, all muddy, wet, cold and uninspired. Unmotivated. Unfulfilled.

A little more about the self-checkouts, and the poll results

There is something about the rise of self-checkout stations at many stores I hadn’t considered until I read a thing in the business section of the Toronto Star, who quoted a source from the Wall Street Journal:

Continuation of my drama-filled day

This is part 2 of this morning’s post. (Did you know I was making this a 2-part post? Me either. 😀)

***

I know some of you are sitting on the edge if your seat wondering how my anxiety-fueled 24-hours have passed.

Lucky for you I’m currently ticked off at my family which is why I’m typing from the relative safety (and isolation) of my bedroom.

Hump day drivel

This morning I really didn’t feel like going to boot camp.

Then I looked outside.

Car covered in snow.

Now I really, really didn’t feel like getting myself all packed up into layers to go to boot camp.

So when 9:05 came around …

3 polls about self-checkout machines

The other day I rambled on about my day and mentioned an incident in a store about a self-checkout machine.

They’re popping up everywhere in modern, civilized society. And many larger chain stores are renovating to accommodate this trend. I see this in in the Greater Toronto Area, but I have also seen this in Switzerland while on vacation last summer.

The interesting thing is the comments that came in on my post.  It came from an assortment of international readers beyond Canada where I live.

This has me thinking. (Uh oh… 😏)
