3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
It was a distinctly odd Wednesday in which no one did what expected of them. Son did a runner from College to avoid participating in the last-day-of-term mandatory choir performance because he hated the songs. Missus came in from work highly distracted and blithering a lot of naive nonsense mostly about what was on the news. Having realized she was irritating the f*ck out of me she retreated to bed early and slept right through.
I was somewhat disappointed by Missus' distracted mood and was less tolerant than I would have wished and was myself distracted after discovering certain new sites online. The odd thing was that we all emerged better for it. Seb was delighted with my latest educational investment for him, Sibelius composing software, and I fully got out of my system my own distractions.
As missus slept, myself and Son hooked up for an enjoyable hour in front of the TV before I went to bed. I was woken very early in this morning by a rock hard erection that demanded self-indulgence. These days, this feels like a triumph! it is now a rare occurrence and reassures me that I am not yet completely dead from the waist down.
After a day in which everyone was distracted yet somehow it led to positive outcomes, today I intend to be re-grounded and re-focused on my life-purposes and objectives.
