Week #12 of 2017

I'm blaming the fact that I worked over 60 hours this week for not posting any. It's probably not true but it's a legitimate excuse. Just don't let anyone in my family know that I complained about all those hours because my brother averages that every week and I get no sympathy, they just compare my normal week to his. In case you haven't read my tweets in the last couple of weeks, he's the better brother.

My hours will go back to normal next week. We had inventory on Friday and Saturday. For some reason, we had to work 10 hours on Monday and Tuesday to "prepare" for inventory. I was supposed to work normal hours Wednesday but the 2nd shift guy called in so I stayed over. Normal hours on Thursday, then Friday was scheduled 12 hours and Saturday they didn't let me go home until 13 1/2 hours later. Most of that time was sitting on my ass but it still wasn't very relaxing.

Day 83 (Lake Mills, WI - 257.5 Miles)
I'm out in the middle of nowhere so not much going on. It's finally warmed up to the 60's and 70's but it's been raining. Also, I worked a lot so not much extra walking last week. Hopefully, next week I'll be able to go walking after work and make up all those weekends. At least I only have to make up one day this weekend since I worked yesterday.

That win was nice, but it was the last one.

I swear I forget something every Monday. Either my biscuit or silverware for my lunch.

I don't care if we lost, you always have to represent. Although, that hat is now gone. Someone stole it Friday night because I leave it at work. It was a ratty work hat so I'm not sure why someone wanted it.

I thought it was funny.

I support pretty much everything that has to do with the Wolverines.

He's usually hiding in his room all evening but he was out here talking our ear off.

They fuck you in the drive-thru

Heard it again, I wonder if there will be a week that I don't hear it.

Ignore that 54 floors, it's never right. It's usually to low but one day said I had 20 some floors and it was my normal day where I get 5 to 7.

Another week with no posts

I guess I'm back to my not posting very often. So at least for now, you'll get these on Sundays.

Day 75, Oconomowoc, WI (235.9 Miles)
I am still keeping track of my steps and mileage on Google Maps, I just haven't posted it here in awhile. Right now I'm in the middle of a couple of fields in Wisconsin. As of right now, I'm touring all the MLB stadiums with other stops along the way. Of course, there aren't very many around here. I was planning on going walking today, it was supposed to be sunny and in the 50's but it hasn't turned out that way. I'm really going to have to walk my ass off this summer just to get caught up to my 8,000 steps a day goal. I'd hate to see how many steps I'm behind. Let's find out, give me just a second and I'll do some math. I'm 113,161 steps behind. I've been averaging around that 8,000 a day on work days but the weekends have been bad. Next week I'm working overtime so that will help. We'll see where I'm at after this summer and the weather is better. If I walk 2 miles after work it only takes 2 days to make up one weekend day so I can definitely make up the steps, now just getting the weather to cooperate.

Remember when I said I was trying to tweet more? Yeah, sorry. It's also March Madness time so, yeah, sorry again.

We like both shows so what's not to like.

Like I said, it's March Madness.

See, I don't hate everyone. I do like underdogs, to bad they couldn't get their first win though. Plus they are Big Ten, I root for them all at this time of the year.

We are coming down to the final 3 episodes of the season and I can't wait. The group is (hopefully) going to rise up and fight Negan.

It's true, I can't wait until Sunday to watch it but afterwards, I'm usually heading for bed and starting my work week.

I swear the stupid thing never works. It'll either jump 2 spots when you push the down button which blows right past the Playlist button or it just won't load any of the Playlists if you did get it.

I love baseball.

I was heading into work and had already clocked in and walked through one department and just had the feeling that it was down, I don't know if it was drafty or what but I just happen to reach down and sure enough, I never zipped up my fly that morning. At least I noticed.

She does this, especially this time of the year (Easter) because they are easier to find. I then take the black ones to work and give it to a fellow jelly bean lover there.

Didn't need the tissues at all. It wasn't as dramatic as they set it up to be. Still a great show though.

I do these occasionally, this was a retweet.

Like I said last week, I hear it all the time.

That would be my wife, in case you couldn't figure that out. She was on her way to meet our oldest daughter and brought me some breakfast. I just wish she would do it without me asking. If I don't mention it the night before, it won't happen.

I really felt naked without because I pretty much have it on all the time. I only take it off to shower and sleep. It sucked because I felt like I had a pretty good day. I gave myself 8,000 steps, which is what I want to average but to be honest, I think I probably had more than that.

March Madness again.

That was Friday night before bed. I have since loaded up my Tumblr accounts so they are good for a little bit. I save stuff throughout the week and then tend to queue a bunch over the weekend to post throughout the week.

She listens to hard rock now but I had to introduce her to one of the greats from back when I was jamming out to rock n roll. She did know some about half the songs that I played her and I played probably 10 or 12 tracks.

I record all their games and then usually only watch the ones they win but since it's Spring Training and the winning doesn't really matter, I watch them all. Plus, I'm just so ready to start watching baseball again I just had to watch.

I finished Whispers of the Dead and gave it 4 stars, I started Peace Warrior on Friday so I haven't gotten very far yet.

As you can see, no Friday so all my stats were down compared to the week before.
