    • I tried… I failed.

Saturday To-Do List

I have a few things I was hoping to do today, but now that I know the NHL is coming back on 8/1, all I want to do is play EA NHL20 on our PS4.

I need to do the laundry. It’s bed sheets day.

I’m on the hook for quinoa for dinner tonight.

I’m about 90 seconds away from being caught up on Agents of Shield, so that’s good news.

It occurred to me this morning that I have somehow tricked myself into trying to do three music projects at once. 50/90 is underway. I haven’t been ignoring it, but I’ve only been getting a little bit of work done. The Great 2015 Re-Recording Project is two lead guitar parts and two mix downs away from having the first batch of songs complete. The second batch of eight is lined up and ready to go. Then along with 50/90 I am still trying to do an album in a month each month. I need to write 50 songs in 90 days, but 30 of those 50 songs need to be written and recorded entirely within a single month. 10 each for July, August, and September.

First though, the 335 needs new strings, and I am going to re-watch some maintenance vids on youtube and see if I need to make any neck adjustments. Color me terrified.

But first, first! Laundry!

Oh yeah, and I have to take out the trash too. Consider it done. Oh, and the bird feeders are empty. Okay, add that to the list. Oh and NHL20 too… Yeah.

Agenda Update

To update my earlier post with today’s agenda.  I still have some laundry to do, but the important stuff for today is done.  Next up is putting the newly cleaned sheets onto Harry’s bed and then its time to clean the old bathroom.  Also, next up is maybe getting caught up on The Flash?

Today’s agenda:

  1. Say hi to Bellana
  2. Clean the bathrooms
  3. Clean the living room
  4. Shit tons of laundry
  5. Put our new sheets and blankets onto the bed
  6. Sleep

Today’s nerdy alternate agenda:

  1. Say hi to Bellana
  2. Get caught up on Supergirl (I’m about 1.5 episodes behind, I think)
  3. Play some guitar (two new song ideas are in the works)
  4. Watch The Walking Dead
  5. Sleep

Mini To-Do List for Saturday

Here is a mini sized to-do list for today.

1. Get donuts for the wife and kids.
Done
2. Get the guitar playing step son to his band practice.
3. Go grocery shopping.
4. Learn a bunch of new songs for my band practice tomorrow
a. The keyboard part at the end of “Just What I Needed” by The Cars
b. “You May Be Right” by Billy Joel. Mike and I played this one in high school so it’s more like re-learning it for us.
c. “Creep” by Radiohead.
d. “Fine Again” by Seether.
e. Figure out that awful Michael Jackson thing that I was noodling over by ear last week but should probably learn the actual changes and play right. I guess.
5. Practice the guitar so I (hopefully) won’t suck as bad as last week.
6. Most important of all, watch Avengers 2 with the kids! (WOOOHOO!)
7. Second most important of all, watch another episode of Agent Carter with the kids.

To-Do List Check In

Let’s see how I did with the to-do list today.

1. Dunks. Check
2. Munchkins. Mmmm Mmmm good. Check
3. McKinnons. Steak tips for today, chicken breasts for tomorrow. Check.
4. Mow the lawn. My back is KILLING ME now, but it’s all done. Check.
5. Shave. Dolphin smooth. Check.
6. Poland Springs. Check.
7. Buy a Twin Reverb and a Big Muff Pi. Eh, not so much.
8. Set a timer. Done, but no reaction yet. The love of my life is very busy today. Check.
9. Buy a recycle bin. I had to do it online as Home Depot didn’t have any, but check.
10. Practice the gitter. Umm…..
11. Cook dinner on the grill. As mentioned previously, steak tips. Mmm Mmm Good. Check.
12. Watch Fear the Walking Dead. Not yet. Maybe tonight before bed. I have chimed in on a number of discussions on reddit though.
13. Sleep. It’s not bed time, but… check. I may have nodded off after dinner. More sleep to come though.

All in all, not too shabby.

To-Do List for Saturday August 29, 2015

There are a lot of things to get done today, so I figure I’d write out a to-do list to try and stay organizized.

1. Go to Dunkin Donuts to get breakfast for the Mrs.
2. Eat Munchkins. Mmmm, Dunkin Donuts chocolate munchkins.
3. Go to McKinnon’s to get dinner for the Mrs and I for both today and tomorrow. As Ned Stark always said, Winter is Coming, so I should get stuff to cook on the grill while I still can.
4. Mow the lawn for the first time in three weeks.
5. Shave! I’m seriously starting to look like a member of the 2013 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox. I look like I have a freakin’ monkey growing out of my face.
6. Put away the Poland Springs water that was delivered yesterday even though Poland Springs didn’t send us a notification that the delivery was coming, and therefore we didn’t leave our empties out for pick up. That means the garage is full to bursting with Poland Springs bottles.
7. Buy a $1400 Fender Twin Reverb amplifier and some form of distortion pedal. Possibly a Rat2 (popular with the Seattle bands from the ’90s) or a Big Muff Pie (popular with one Mr David Gilmour whose supply of awesomesauce never, ever runs out), or maybe one of the MXR models (because the last two pedals I bought were MXR and I LOVE ‘EM!)
8. Set a timer on my spiffy little Apple Watch to time how long it takes for my beloved wife Jennifer to read entry #7 and start yelling, “NO!”. hehe Love you sweetie!
9. Buy a recycle bin. I won’t go into it, but arguments over trash were a major part of why I was in such a state of mood swing yesterday. Everything’s fine now though.
10. Practice the guitar for tomorrow’s band practice. Gots to learn that piano part from that U2 song. Maybe put some new strings onto the 335 while I’m at it.
11. Cook dinner on the grill, as stated in entry #3.
12. Watch the first episode of Fear the Walking Dead one more time (this will be four, I think) in preparation for episode 2 which airs tomorrow. Someone on reddit mentioned something odd about color schemes and I need to see if I can spot it. Something about all of the scenes in the first half of the episode including something blue, and then all of the scenes toward the end including something red. As if, everything’s fine so we’ll show you a happy blue color suddenly turns to everything’s not fine anymore so we’ll show you red for danger. Probably not anything important, or even intentional, but a good excuse to watch the pilot again.
13. Sleep.

I have already completed items one through three and damn were those munchkins yummy. They were so good that I am starting to really need to get back on the weight loss plan… because I could get addicted to them and gain another 500 pounds, easily.

Weekend To Do List

I’m three hours and 39 minutes away from the weekend. This has been a hard fought week. Being the first full week in a while, thanks to holidays and sick days, it has seemed nearly endless. The end is in sight though.

There are a few things I want to get done this weekend. Here’s my list.

First: Do everything humanly possible to make my beautiful wife Jen feel better. She’s had three doctors look at her in the last eight days and still she doesn’t feel any better. I want so bad for her to get over this. I want my sweetie to be all better.

Second: Stop coughing all the time.

Third: Get a haircut ya hippie!

Forth: Take down the Christmas decorations. It’s time.

Fifth: Get the damn tire fixed.  It was time six months ago.

Sixth: I found out why the cat runs away anytime she gets caught in the cellar.  There is a little rug we have in front of the couch.  We very rarely sit on that couch, so this has been slipping past us for a while… but there are at least three places on the rug where little miss kitty lost her lunch.  That rug has got to go away now, bye bye.

Seventh: Does the cat have a similar hiding place in one of the closets?  I need to empty it and find out.

Eighth: Relax and enjoy a full weekend with the kids.

Hopefully I’ll get at least a couple of these items done this weekend.  We shall see.
