That's my brain this week.

I'm still home.  I haven't done anything worth blogging about, and it's already the seventh day of the year.

I've shopped.  Cooked.  Shopped more.  Returned items I bought.  Went to lunch, dinner, and coffee with a friend.  Rented every RedBox movie we haven't seen yet.  Cleaned out a shed.  Almost had a garage sale.  Did countless loads of laundry - I keep washing the two outfits I go out of the house in.

I am used to having a lot of time on my hands and I've realized that I'm better when my time is limited.  Only because it provides a deadline for me to get whatever things done that I need to do.

We're having mufflers replaced on our truck now.  Waiting for the parts to be delivered.  They're coming from the east coast, and with a third of the country experiencing below zero temperatures, in addition to snow and ice, we're not really sure when they're going to arrive.  They were supposed to be here today.  They're not.

We also got a call today for a load.  Going to California.  We can't go to California anymore and told that to the agent.  They said, "Yeah, that law is really hurting us."  Oh well {{shoulder shrug}}, California obviously doesn't care.  We don't go to California that frequently anyway, so it's not a huge problem for us, and they do care enough to give us about 1,000 miles a year in their state.  Whether we'll use that remains to be seen.

For now, we get the truck mufflers fixed and look for a load to get out of town.  Until then, we sit.  

So, see?  Lameness abounds.

I was thinking about doing a "photo a day" for 2014.  As you can see, I'm seven days behind on that project.  Maybe I'll make it a "photo a month" instead.

I do a lot of thinking on a lot of things, but don't do a lot of doing.  Don't get me wrong, I get a lot done in a day when I'm being productive.

So, yeah, I guess I'm rambling here.  Filling space, trying to think of something exciting to tell you about besides my dentist appointment and my failed garage sale.  But I've got o cazzo.  Look that up - o cozzo - it was a favorite phrase in my family.

Tomorrow, I'll post a lame photo.  Unless something exciting happens between now and then.

Don't hold your breath.
