Just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, except the Titanic is sailing serenely in a warm ocean. No whammies!

For fans of my work/play taxonomy, I renamed work that is play from HOBBY to HOME, because housework was what was falling into this category and even though I don't mind housework—per definition, it's something that I do as a means to an end that's an end in itself, I just read this great advice to add "meditation" to every boring task, which I totally already do—and as much as I see words as cracked containers, they still basically contain meaning and saying that cleaning and cooking is your "hobby" is just so dire. Still though, if you're also following along with sorting balanced between sleep, practice, and recovery, I'm counting WORK work as practice (pink), where you're casting yourself out into the world, and HOME work as recovery (blue), where you're winding yourself back in, and similarly PLAY is pink, expending, and PASTIME is blue, replenishing. Though should you adopt these systems, you should adapt them to how things feel to you. You are the arbiter of your own everything!

You may have gleaned that behind this chart is another, bigger ...chart! That is, my timetracker. Think you're ready for timetracker? Okay, stay tuned!

(Really this is amazingly balanced, there's four WORK to four HOME and ten PLAY to ten PASTIME. You know what I hope I can get started, actual pastimey pastimes, like sewing stuff or book binding which I've wanted to do forever, not just watching movies and television.)

A new thing that is happening chez Spock or Munt, whatever, is that we're on hiatus from Sunday Hollywood breakfasts. I think I got sick for a week or two and just fell out of the habit, which I had been thinking about giving up, but didn't think I could because it's been just about the favorite part of my week for the past half year at least. But costs twenty-five dollars a week, which is a hundred dollars a month, and between Thanksgiving and MLK Day I've gotten two new crowns to the tune of $1200, haha have you seen this:

wicker tooth

That came out of my mouth at scrimmage when I took out my mouthguard. Yeeeah.

So happily enough it was painless to quit Hollywood breakfasts, and now we have Sunday breakfasts at home with a tablecloth and everything, and we can even talk over breakfast because it's quieter. We can get right started with our weekly team meeting, did I tell you about team meetings? We are getting serious about building this business, and we're doing it together! So now we meet every week, more TK.

I guess the other thing is that I'm picking up another Friday at the office, every other week. That squeezed my Friday housework, laundry and grocery, into Wednesday, so that still gets done every week, and on alternate Fridays when I'm home, I'm already done with housework and have a whole morning to write.

Ma femme Helliot shared Google Poetics on her timeline a couple weeks ago, and right away I found my favorite line, "yesterday was dramatic today is okay," which is my whole approach to anxiety and drama, I only want to talk about my anxieties after they're over. Anyway I bring this up because I was a little bit anxious that I wasn't feeling like writing and was needing to rest between cleaning and cooking and going out to practice or train. But that was because I was on break, and I was on break because I needed to rest! Now that I'm rested, I can write in the afternoons and at bedtime again.

I must write these things down, so I can remember them.
