MKE Week 2

Back on track. No IT issues this week, no injured family members this week, just very near psychotic issues, stay tuned.

Oh, there was one slight but amazingly funny episode. My 12 years old son, who already is taller than his Mother, tried out his amazing athletic abilities by doing some sort of high jump maneuver on to his bed the night before last. He sailed into the sky in his small bedroom in a perfect movement that you might only ever see seabirds perform, and as he glided down on to the mattress he went straight through the bottom of the bed. Oh my God, I am afraid to say that I couldn’t show concern, I couldn’t show anger, all I could do was just laugh, and laugh, and laugh, even when he was pleading for help to extricate him from the ruins of his bed. Oh well, another visit to IKEA, which leads perfectly into blogging about the week past on the MKE.

I swear, if I see another blue rectangle, I might just have a psychotic episode. They are every bl&%dy where. The large blue IKEA bags, if folded properly, blue rectangle. Motorway signs, blue rectangles. Spines of books, blue rectangles. Nintendo Switch controller (left hand side), blue rectangle. You see it’s so bad I’m even telling you which controller is the blue rectangle. And it goes on, paper tray, blue rectangle, packet of tissues (Boots Ultra Balm), blue rectangles…. Ahhhhhggggg!

Chores, I actually weeded the front garden. That was not so much a celebration, but more of a “what the heck happened there?” moment.

15 minutes of peace. I’m sleeping too often when I close my eyes, so now I’m trying to clam myself with my eyes open. Getting there, slowly.

The DMP. I knew really that my first attempt was a little rushed. The comments that came back really taxed me, like I was sitting a long time trying to make very small edits. I’m happier with the revision, I’m really looking forward to more comments to tax me further. You can do a lot with 400 words.

Blogging is also helping. It makes me focus not just on what’s right, but more importantly on what’s wrong.

Let the journey continue… LOVING IT!

  1. You know, Trevor, when I read and commented on your Week 1 post, I indicated some similarities between us – experientially, anyway. If you compare the way you’ve described your IKEA moment with what I’ve written in a post I published some time ago (it’s actually a literal translation of one of the funniest Ted Talks I’ve Ever Seen) You’ll Know Exactly What I Mean:

    Whether or not you take a gander, I’m enjoying this journey with you! 🙂
