Feeling Irritable 

This will not be a long post, as I am feeling rather irritable.  In fact, the posting will consist of a list of random thoughts:

1.  Sadly, there was no gin at the wedding on Saturday.  They had only whiskey, or vodka, or beer.  So, I drank whiskey with cola while there. 

2.  The whole family went together to a nearby County Fair on Sunday.  It was quite nice.  It was not the Fair in our County which was a few weeks ago, but is that given by a neighboring county.  We watched some of the teens who are active in 4-H take care of their animals, saw a few competitions, drank some wonderful apple-cider slushies, and had fun walking around.  Probably my favorite display was when we watched an artist carve out a beautiful statue from a stump of a log using chain saws.  It was a remarkable display. 

3.  Yesterday was a sort of wasted day, with nothing much of merit to report. 

4.  Today, I am aggravated and irritable about work and about my ever growing honey-do list at home.  Work is currently filled with a bunch of yahoos who simply want to make more busy-work b*llsh*t, and the growing honey-do list at home IS NOT my wife's fault, but is instead a result of my feeling lazy and apathetic about doing much.  I want to change that, but have yet to do so. 

5.  I am going to head out soon and get a haircut and beard and mustache trim.   I will then try to get motivated to do more work.
