Even by Wednesday this week I had some decent energy.  I’m pretty sure those new night time anti-depressants are doing the trick.  Pretty consistent week for getting up by 7:30-8:00 & getting things done.  Might also be that I don’t go to the washroom 4 times a night to pee?  I’m on a medication for my bladder as well.  Before it was a rush to the bathroom & very often.  I still drink 3-5 liters of water a day.  I go to the washroom a lot but not nearly as much & it’s not nearly as urgent.  The downside to my bladder pills is that if I don’t drink enough water, I get dry mouth in a bad way.

I accidentally dropped my new sleeping pill under the bed Wednesday night.  I was far too lazy to look for whatever pill I dropped & went to bed.  I found out the hard way it was my sleeping pill………….awake until shortly after 1:00 am, but out of bed by 7:50 am.

I really don’t like day time baseball games.  One on Wednesday starting at 11:00 am & 2 games on Thursday starting at 11:00 am.  That means I didn’t play my guitar on Thursday & only a small amount on Wednesday.  I just unplug or don’t play after 8:30 pm since were in an apartment style condo.  Just watching TV makes me anxious.  I feel like I should be doing something, I get fidgety after 30 minutes.

Kim called the police yesterday.  She was forwarded to a messaging service for the evidence department.  So no word yet on a retrieval of the bike?  She also doesn’t see the point in getting a new bike this year.  She says she won’t have much time to ride it since she’ll probably put it away come mid-September.

We had a nice visit with our friends from Edmonton Wednesday night.  Haven’t seen them in 2 years & a lot has happened since then!  Good to catch up.  No we didn’t visit here.  Too many seniors in our building, instead my parents were kind enough to let us use their back yard tented patio area to visit outside while distancing.  They picked up their supper, we got ours, had supper & a lengthy chat while Brewster got to be free in the backyard.  Brewster was quite tired.  He didn’t get out of bed until 2:30 pm yesterday when I woke him up as I checked on him.  He moved from our bed to his kennel when we got up in the morning.

I’ve been anxiously waiting for this day.  One of us should get an email later on today letting us know my new guitar is here!  If it gets here today, I’ll be watching baseball tonight while playing it unplugged!  This might call for some rum on the rocks?!?!  I really don’t like playing guitar with any alcohol in my system though.

Strap locks shouldn’t be a big deal on a PRS, apparently the strap buttons are quite large.  I should be getting the beer bottle sealers that we ordered in June this month from amazon.  Then I just need new strings for 3 guitrars here.  I’ve already done my acoustic & my 7 string seems fine for now.  So if I do the other 3 I should be good for quite a while!

From the looks of things the amplifier is looking more & more like it won’t happen,  just so we can pay into my Retirement Disability Savings Plan (RDSP).  I’ve got an amplifier so I’d rather buy the guitar & put money away for when I’m 60.  The amplifier would be really good, but if I have to pick one, it’s this guitar hands down!

I guess there are money issues when you have money (I wouldn’t know personally) & when you don’t?

I thought this would be a fairly straight forward easy song…………OH HOW I WAS WRONG!  Weird tuning, chords I’ve never seen before, layered guitar tracks, & mostly individual notes throughout.  Good song to learn different stuff from though!

I wen’t deeper into the guitar part since I don’t sing anymore.

Constantly playing stuff I’ve learned.

Just started learning this the other day

…& always playing stuff from the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th Foo Fighters albums.
